Looking for a healthier snack option? Gaslamp Popcorn has you covered! The California made popcorn is actually now my favorite popcorn of all time! I like that it is healthier and it tastes great! My son also loves it and it is a better option than candy bars and chips. I think they have the best Kettle Corn too! This is one popcorn that the whole family can agree on, even if they have different favorites. I really can’t choose my all time favorite one…they are all sooooo good!

Find out more on their website. You can also find some really cool recipes there too! My favorite is the White Chocolate Mint recipe!

You can find Gaslamp Popcorn at Vons and Ralphs and other locations.

Simple Mills Launches Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cracker Line 4 All-Natural Varieties with Non-GMO Certification & No Artificial Anything! Must-buy for Healthier Snack Options!

Following the success of its natural baking mixes, which have held the #1 spot in sales per point of distribution in the category for the last year, Simple Mills is extending its reach beyond the baking aisle with a new line of almond flour crackers. Each variety – including Fine Ground Sea Salt, Rosemary & Sea Salt, Sundried Tomato & Basil, and Farmhouse Cheddar – is Non-GMO Project Verified, certified gluten-free, paleo-friendly, and made with clean, whole food ingredients with no grain, soy or artificial flavors or fillers.

The base flour of the line is a proprietary blend of almonds, sunflower seeds and flax seeds. This combination yields a higher vitamin and mineral content than many competitive products as well as a lower carbohydrate count and glycemic index. Most other crackers include ingredients like rice flour, potato starch, xanthan gum, soy lecithin, ammonium bicarbonate and maltodextrin with little or no nutritional value.

I received samples and I really like the Farmhouse Cheddar! I like that it is a healthier snack option and they seem light. I love that they have whole food ingredients and I can easily find them at our local Whole Foods Market.

Each 4.25 oz box retails for $4.99. The line has hit store shelves this spring, with national distribution commitments already secured from Whole Foods and Sprouts.

Simple Mills’ Artisan Bread, Pizza Dough, Vanilla Cake, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Pancake/Waffle, and Banana, Pumpkin and Chocolate Muffin baking mixes are distributed in both natural and conventional groceries, including Whole Foods, Earth Fare, Wegman’s, Albertsons/Safeway, Raley’s, Mariano’s and Hy-Vee, as well as online retailers such as Amazon, Thrive and Vitacost.

All Simple Mills recipes are developed by founder and CEO Katlin Smith, who has earned multiple awards for her business model and strict focus on simple, whole foods products.
