We as a family of five eat a lot and with our quarantine life limiting us to our house we eat, snack, munch, graze, and devour even more. I am thankful for our Costco membership and the variety of healthy, organic, and delicious foods I can get for everyone in my family. Here are a few of my recent favorites.
This recent find is gluten free. We are not gluten intolerant and we do not have gluten allergies. But something on that packaging appealed to me, calling my name, and I am glad I picked it up. These Milton’s CRAFT BAKERS Crispy Sea Salt Backed crackers are light, delicious, and perfectly seasoned. My kids like to snack on them as is and I prefer to dip them in guacamole. These crisps will be a perfect snack during summer barbeque season. They are also nut free, xantham gum free, non GMO project verified, certified kosher, and have no trans fats or cholesterol. We are almost done with our first bag and I will certainly be getting more. Price is $7.89 for 20oz bag.
These Mary’s Gone Crackers are filled with seeds and wholegrains. I put cheese on them, have them plain with a glass of wine, or dip them in homemade guacamole. They are filling, but 13 crackers are only 140 calories, 0 sugars, 0g of trans fats, organic, gluten free, non-gmo, vegan, kosher, and peanut free. They come in a box with two 10 oz bags. Price at Costco is $7.99
This Spanish Cheese Selection Garcia Baquero will go perfectly with the above crackers. The packaging containes cut into triangles pieces of three types of chese, Manchego(made from 100% sheep milk), Tipsy Goat(Goat milk), and Iberico(Sheep, Goat, and Cow milk). This cheese is a hit on my chese board and even my kids love it. It is full of flavor. The price at Costco is $8.99.
These Fruit and Nut Clusters Jacques Torres by Chocolate Orchard should come with a warning that you might not be able to stop eating and will be disappointed when the bag is empty. Little chocolate circles are made of 60% dark chocolate filled with cranberries, cocoa nibs, roasted almonds, pistachios, and antioxidant fruit bites. The bag is $9.49 and is worth every cent. The delicious sweet is made in Jacques Torres Factory in New York, where he brings together only the best ingredients to deliver heavenly deserts. His motto is “real is my promise to you”. Get yours while it lasts and enjoy chocolate pieces of heaven.
And the last recent favorite is Cotton Candy Grapes. How did they pack that flavor into those grapes? Anyway, we love them. They are $9.99 for a 3 lb box, a bit pricey, but they are seasonal so we only get them a few times.
May your tables be always bountiful with joy, laughter, family, and friends!
