Welcome to the third, and final, installment of my recap on the IFBC! Today I am going to tell you about some new products that I discovered there that I am really excited about!
sidenote: We did get some free product in our gift bags, but this post is not sponsored, I just truly think these products are awesome! 🙂 READ ON!
Zevia Soda – So it’s zero calories, like diet, but it’s sweetened with stevia NOT Splenda. Diet pop is my guilty pleasure so this ROCKS. Plus they come in a lot of flavors…more than pictures above!
Zaycon Foods– This company is awesome you guys. They deliver food right from the farm to you, taking out the middle man (grocery store.) Now you can get food SUPER fresh, because it doesn’t sit at the grocery store. They deliver chicken, beef, sausage, fruit, veggies and MORE! You get amazing quality at amazing prices, because it comes right to you! And it started right here in Washington and is now in 48 states! Seriously, check it out!
Isernio’s Sausage: A lot of you west coasters may be familiar with this, but we didn’t have it in Florida. We LOVE chicken sausage in the FFF household, but it’s hard to find a REALLY lean one that actually still tastes good. We had Isernio Chicken Sausage meatballs at the tasting party and they were SO good guys…and so healthy! LOVE this product.
Raincoast Crisps: Artisan crackers with some AMAZING flavours. My top two favorite were these salty date and almond and a pumpkin spice variety, topped with a ltitle guacamole. THE YUM. I could snack for days guys. Maybe years!
Peanut Butter & Co Peanut Butter – So, you’re all looking at me like “you just discovered this?” And the answer is NO. I have been seeing it at the grocery store FOREVER, and keep meaning to buy it, and just never do. I met some of the awesome PB & Co Peeps and now I HAVE to try it. BUT, before I do, I want to know what is your fav flavour? What should I try first? I’m so intrigued by these, you all know I love my peanut buttah!
Nutiva – So the Nutiva Coconut Oil is NOT a new discovery for me. In fact, it’s the ONLY coconut oil I use – I haven’t found any better! BUT, at the conference, they were showcasing their new vegan shortening – a blend of coconut and palm oils! I am seriously SO pumped to try this in my baking!
Koochikoo Sugar Free Cookies – First off, the name, it’s SO fun to say. These cookies are completely all natural, sugar free and sweetened with fruit extract! The first ingredient is white whole wheat flour (my fav kind!) so that brings me joy. We got to try the Jolly Ginger Spice. It tastes like your grandma made it. You would NEVER know they’re better for you!
Bigelow Chamomile Vanilla – I have been drinking Bigelow Tea for awhile (I love their Apple Cider Tea!) But I was SO pumped when I found this. I LOVE chamomile tea and vanilla tea, but I have never had them IN ONE TEA BAG. It’s so good you guys! They also debuted some Salted Caramel Tea and Mint Chocolate Tea! Yeah, they’re as good as they sound! It’s like dessert in a cup. And good for you. WIN.
Aneto Broth – First off, this brand was SO cute, and made us all aprons with our blog names embroidered on them – SO SWEET! Anet0 is actually based out of Barcelona, Spain (SO cool!) and they make 100% natural broths, using only fresh ingredients. You guys, these actually taste homemade! Plus they come in over 20 FLAVOURS! I don’t know about your grocery stores, but I can only find chicken, beef and vegetable, so I think this is AWESOME. I mean, look at the picture above: Squid ink paella? COOLNESS!
Noosa Yoghurt – Another one of those products that some of you may be familiar with, but is new to me. This yogurt. MY GOSH IS IT CREAMY. Like dessert kind of creamy. And they have this new pumpkin flavour that has REAL PUMPKIN IN IT. They served it at breakfast one morning, which I missed, but I got to try it at the tasting event during the evening. The yoghurt was created in Australia and is all natural and sweetened with honey – even better!
Sante Nuts – I talked about these in the post about the food. These nuts are INSANELY addictive. The above 3 were in my top favs, along with the cinnamon pecans. I mean, candied pistachios? Have you ever heard of that? SO creative and SO tasty.
AND! Now you CAN try them! Santé Nuts is being awesome and letting one of you lucky people win a large bag of the Candied Pistachios to try! Seriously, I can’t stop eating them. Entry is easy, just use the widget below!
