Introducing Sejoyia Foods, A New Way of Snacking Chocolate Chip and Salted Caramel..Yum!

unnamed (3)unnamed (4)

Looking for a healthier snack option?

Sejoyia’s products are born from the belief that snacking can be wholesome and healthy while also being undeniably delicious. We use minimal, real food ingredients to provide customers access to satisfying, indulgent snacks that are good for them – Sejoyia snacks feed and energize the body rather than force it to ingest and breakdown foreign toxins that are found in traditional snacks.

2017 began with the exciting launch of two new flavors of their signature cookie, Coco-Roons. Staying true to our roots, they wanted to provide consumers with  two all-American favorites and are adding Chocolate Chip and Salted Caramel to the Coco-Roon lineup.

I had the opportunity to try them and they are healthy and delicious! It’s really tough to find that combo! My favorite is the Chocolate Chip!

Coco-Roons are a delightful, good-for-you indulgence. Made with organic coconut, organic almond flour and sweetened with a touch of pure Vermont maple syrup, Coco-Roons are a great source of energy and the perfect indulgent snack for any sweet tooth.

Spring is almost here and that means more outside time fun!

I highly recommend the the all-aluminum WALKAROO® Wee Stilts from Geospace. I like that they are compact and that they are for ages 4+. The maximum weight is 110 lbs.  As kids grow, simply lengthen the adjustable tubes. The soft foam grips are at waist height for greater control and comfort. Non-slip, non-marking foot pads inspire confidence on all surfaces. Leg height adjusts easily from 10” to 15”, so kids can control the thrill factor.

For more information, check them out here! They are available in Red or Blue.

Farmer’s Pantry Feeds Your Hunger With Exclusively American Farm Grown Revolutionary Snacks

unnamed (1)  unnamed (2)

Farmer’s Pantry, the proudly American new snack brand, debuts the first snacks of their kind: 100% American grown first-ever Farmers Pantry Cornbread Crisps and the revolutionary, innovative  Farmers Pantry Meal Snacks, a first in offering meat and veggies in one package. Farmer’s Pantry is pushing the boundaries of what it means to be hungry – and to be fed well. Americans are a driven people, always clamoring for new ideas, new things to try and the “best” of our obsession with food. Being hungry and finding satisfaction isn’t just a condition, it’s a cultural lifestyle.

 

Committed to your hunger, Farmer’s Pantry offers hearty, wholesome and crunchy snacks that are made with ingredients that are grown exclusively on American farms: ingredients you can recognize as some of the oldest and most beloved food staples found in a farmers pantry.  Two revolutionary new snacks in stores for the first time now are:

  • Farmer’s Pantry Cornbread Crisps: These crispy delights are like no other on the market: made from one of the oldest and most popular American food staples – freshly-baked cornbread. Farmer’s Pantry Cornbread crisps are the first of its kind, delicately sliced and toasted to crispy perfection, and created from the wholesome goodness of cornbread you can munch on the go. Farmer’s Pantry Cornbread Crisps, available in Original, Jalapeno and Honey-Butter flavors, are a crispy, savory snack that tastes as mouth-wateringly delicious as the first bite of a slice of corn bread or corn muffin. Made from fresh corn and other whole grains grown on American farms, these crisps are sure to appeal to discriminating snackers across the country. Farmer’s Pantry Cornbread Crisps are approximately  $3.99  for 6 oz bags, and under $2.00 for 2 oz bags.

  • The unique Farmer’s Pantry cooking process is all about preserving nutrients and flavor.   The recipes start with ingredients sourced from family farms across America. The snacks are seasoned, with a slow-roast for the meat and vegetables; then, they are gently blended over low heat. Finally, before all the goodness has a chance to escape, they immediately seal it in the dual-pouch package until you tear it open and enjoy. Inspired by some of America’s favorite recipes, Meal Snacks contain real meat and veggies in every single pack. Farmer’s Pantry Meal Snacks have a suggested retail price of $5.99, in a 2.5 oz bags.

Farmer’s Pantry passion to feed your hunger is for everyone, including the millions of American farmers who are being threatened with extinction. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the number of farms in the United States has fallen from about 6.8 million in 1935 to only about 2 million today.  Besides keeping American Farms busy and profitable, a portion of all Farmer’s Pantry sales is used to give back to keeping American farms healthy, by donating to organizations including Farm Aid, Farmland Trust, Family Farm Charities, Veterans Farm and National Young Farmers.

“Millions of Americans have embraced the snacking lifestyle, eating smaller and more frequent meals,” says Josh Chaitovsky, co-founder and CEO of Farmer’s Pantry. “Our mission is to feed your hunger, while also supporting our incredible American Farmers, who provide us with wholesome, local foods that fuel us with nutritious, delicious vegetables, meats, and fruits.”

I had the opportunity to try these snacks for myself and I love them! My favorite are the Farmer’s Pantry Cornbread Crisps in the Honey Butter flavor! I love to eat them with Chili!
