Gluten Free Review:

I, my friends, am a chocoholic..among my many other 'holics'. So, you know I am MORE than willing to try anything Gluten Free Chocolate for the sake of it..right? I mean, it's part of my job, right? (shhh, just pretend it is....)

So, I have three reviews for you guys!

First, one of my FAVORITE things EVER, are the 1lb cupcake from She Loves Cake. Now, I will not divulge just HOW fast I ate my cupcakes, but, um, suffice to say they are GONE PECAN. They are moist, yummy, and eco friendly because they come in nifty little containers and with spoons that are completely biodegradable! How cool is that? She also has some YUMMMMY mixes that I've tried before, the spice cake mix is the ONLY one I've found that tastes like the old spice cake mix my mom used to use! Find more of her yummylicousness at Glutenada. And be sure you keep in touch with Blockhead Radio, because SheLovesCake/Glutenada will be a guest soon on a new foodie show coming up on BHR called "Chocolate Covered Bacon"!

Secondly, I featured Emmy's Organics in a spotlight I made on, and she graciously sent me a goody box of yummy treats!! They are quite tasty and not only gluten free, but organic and vegan also!! The truffles were really good and just plain pretty to look at!! Be sure to pay her a visit!! I don't know much about the vegan lifestyle but I can imagine trying to find yummy things that are both GF and vegan must be difficult, so there you go...a place for both needs!

Last but not least, my lovely friend James (soon to be host of aforementioned Chocolate Covered Bacon Radio show) told me about Miles of Chocolate. While at first distracted by thoughts of a mile long piece of chocolate, I got it together enough to look them up. Indeed they are sold at Whole Foods, so when I visited today I snagged three small brownie samples (.75 each, not bad!) and one large brownie. Um, yeah, the sample sizes are gone. Long gone. I'm holding off on the large piece...til maybe...tonight? It was heavenly.

So there you are my friends, be sure to pay these lovely shops a visit and get your yumminess on!!

General Mills Announcement

"Thank you for contacting General Mills regarding gluten in Corn Chex cereal.
General Mills is reformulating the following Big G Cereals to gluten free

· Corn Chex
· Honey Nut Chex
· Strawberry Chex
· Chocolate Chex
· Cinnamon Chex

As was the case with Gluten Free Rice Chex, the barley malt ingredient was
removed and replaced with another ingredient. Production has begun, so you may
start seeing the gluten free formulas on store shelves now. All 5 products
should be widely available across the U.S. by June 1, 2009. As with all
reformulated products, both products may be on store shelves at the same time so
please read labels/packaging carefully, examining the product packaging to
ensure that the cereal inside the box is in fact the new, gluten free product.
Look for "NOW GLUTEN FREE" or "GLUTEN FREE" on the front/side/back panels.

In addition, the following Betty Crocker Gluten Free mixes will be available at
approximately the same time:

Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie Mix
Betty Crocker Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
Betty Crocker Gluten Free Devils Food Cake Mix
Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix

It is our goal to help our consumers determine whether or not they can include
our products in their diet when they are not labeled Gluten Free. To accurately
accomplish this, we believe it is best to refer to the specific ingredients
listed on each product package; and for this reason, we do not offer a
gluten-free product list.

However, we do understand that ingredients can be confusing. We want you to be
assured that if the ingredient label does not list wheat, barley, rye, oats or
gluten containing ingredients sourced from these grains, then the product would
be gluten-free. Sources of gluten are listed on the label even if the source of
gluten is part of another ingredient (such as flavoring or spice). Because
ingredients may vary from one package to another due to product reformulation,
you should use the products ingredient label to provide you with current and
accurate information."
