Katz Gluten Free Review & Giveaway

Anyone who has read my blog, Facebook, or Twitter page knows by now that I love Katz Gluten Free Products. Recently I had the opportunity to sample some of the new products from Katz, and I found that I love them just as much as the rest, and so do some of my family and friends that are not gluten free. The first product I tried was the new apple pie. I am a lover of pie, so if it can impress me, it's gotta be a great pie.

Just glancing at the pie, I immediately noticed that it looked flaky and beautiful. It was love at first bite. The pie was indeed flaky, not dry and crumbly. The apple filling had a wonderful apple flavor, a thick syrup filling and wasn't too sweet.

The next product I tried was the Coffee Bundt Cake.

The cake was moist and not sweet at all. The frosting balanced with the cake perfectly with the sweet element and the strong coffee flavor any espresso fan is sure to love. I took a couple pieces of this cake to work, and in less than 10 minutes, my friend Jake made them disappear. The cake is a wonderful breakfast food.

The final new product I have tried so far is the Sugared Snack Poppers.

These amazing cookies remind me of the Nilla Wafers I loved so much as a kid. They have a fantastic vanilla flavor and are the perfect size for kids and adults alike. These cookies would be perfect to use in a vanilla pudding recipe or other pudding desserts.

Katz Gluten Free has about 40 products, all of them fantastic! They offer cakes, cookies, breads, pizza crusts, and much more. You can get free shipping on orders over $30 and right now if you purchase their new Cherry Pie or Apple Pie you can get up to 4 dollars off with these coupon codes.

The Excitement of a Box

As hilarious as it might be, I always get just giddy when I get a new box of gluten free products to try. Yesterday, I got a box from one of my favorite companies, Katz Gluten Free. As soon as I saw the label on the box, I went inside and ripped into it. Inside the box was all the products that I wanted to try. Some of these products were their new Apple Pies, a Coffee Bundt Cake, and the Sugared Snack Poppers. I have to say Katz couldn't have picked better products for me if they had tried. My favorite kind of pie is apple, and I am addicted to coffee! Over the next few days, I will be sending reviews on all of these products, plus there will be a chance for you to win a box of 5 Katz Gluten Free products of your choice. Check in tomorrow to see how you can win!

The Wonder of Food

When I was younger, I was quite a picky eater. I think most of us can say that as children. As I got older, I started trying some new things, but still fell under the picky eater category. When I started the gluten free diet, I realized that limiting myself to the foods I knew I liked was just crazy. There was so much food out there that I could have, but didn't want to try. At that point I came to realize that the gluten free diet was picky enough without me helping. About a year after going gluten free, I adopted a new policy on food. If it's gluten free and doesn't eat me first, I'll try it. The truth is, you never know what your missing unless you give it a shot. If you try something and don't like it, you can at least say you tried it. But, not giving something a try just because you think you won't like it is cheating yourself. You never know when you'll miss out on something amazing.
