Taste Test Award Winner: Kerrygold Soft and Creamy Dubliner Cheese Wedges

I honestly don’t consider myself much of a snacker. Not because I’m opposed to the idea of munching in between meals, I’m just not really all that into the commonly accepted “snack” foods. Granola bars, trail mix, mixed nuts, and even candies don’t really do it for me. I’ve learned from experience that keeping a bag of any kind of […]

We Tried It: Nud Banana Crisps

Healthy snacking is more popular than ever, but it’s still not always easy to find a snack that crunches without having poor quality ingredients. That’s why I was excited to discover these crunchy crisps. These crisps are raw, organic, gluten-free, and vegan. The minimal and simple ingredients (It’s always a good sign when you can pronounce and define what you’re consuming.) are […]

Good Food: Little Belgians Original Speculoos Cookies

By Kate Malin Like so many good things, it takes time and care for Little Belgians founder Evy Ballegeer to make her traditional Belgian speculoos cookies, but it’s worth it. The buttery dough is made 48 hours in advance, then shaped using a custom designed wooden mold and finally baked until crisp and brown. The result is a thin, crunchy […]

We Tried It: Q Drinks Ginger Beer

Good Moscow Mules are made with two ingredients: vodka and ginger beer. (Okay, and maybe a squeeze of lime.) Minus the vodka, a Moscow Mule is just really cold, really delicious ginger beer. Every bartender that serves me a Moscow Mule will inevitably hear me ask, “Which brand of ginger beer do you use?” Then they’ll show me the bottle […]

We Tasted It: Tribe Swirl Hummus

We’re big fans of all of Tribe‘s hummus offerings—we named their sriracha variety among our 2015 Taste Test Award winners—but the brand has definitely upped the flavor ante with their new take on the creamy chickpea treat: intensely flavored hummus with the topping swirled throughout instead of simply piled on top. It’s available in four flavor options: Sweet Red Pepper; Salsa; […]

Taste Test Award Winner: Unreal Milk Chocolate Crispy Quinoa Peanut Butter Cups

If a candy company offers a pb-choco cup-type confection I’m going to eat it. It’s my candy of choice. (Justin’s, I love your minis. Reese’s, you’ll never do me wrong. Sun Cups, you still count in my book!) And as if I needed another reason to love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, Unreal Candy introduced a crunchy peanut butter chocolate […]
