This & That

I received an email from Caribou Coffee the other day introducing their yummy fall drinks.  They have 4 new ones:

  • Hot Wild Pumpkin
  • Wild Pumpkin Cooler
  • Hot Wild Caramel Apple
  • Wild Caramel Apple Cooler

I promptly sent off an email to find out if they were all gluten-free.  Here is the response I got:

Dear Kimberly,

Thank you for contacting Caribou Coffee Customer Service with your inquiry. All of the ingredients used to make the new fall drinks are gluten free. However, each of the drinks contain an ingredient that is made in a facility where gluten products are used. So while all effort is made to ensure that our ingredients do NOT have glutens, there isn’t a 100% guarantee. I hope this information is helpful.

You can bet I will be in there trying the Hold Wild Pumpkin & Hot Wild Caramel Apple very soon!!  YUM!!


Joan’s GF Great Bakes is now offering crusty French bread!!!  You can order right from their site.  The French bread is $7.00 + shipping.  Columbus peeps, Raisin Rack carries Joan’s GF Great Bakes, though I am not sure if they have the French Bread in yet.  I tried some of Joan’s products last year & fell in love with the bagels.  They were amazing!  The bagels are 15% off from now through September 18th, so act fast!!


The other day I reviewed Udi’s Baked Goods.  I have since found out that you can call Udi’s & order over the phone (Phone: 303.657.1600) if you can’t find them in your area.  Additionally, you can ask your Whole Foods or local health food store to look into carrying Udi’s. 


I ordered a Road ID this past weekend to wear when I run outdoors.  I had been wanting to order one for a while, but I kept putting it off.  I read on more than one occasion how these IDs have helped save someone, so I promptly ordered mine.  Road ID was nice enough to provide me with a coupon code for all of you to order one for $1 off.  Here is the info:

Hey Everyone,

I just ordered one of the best products ever. It’s called a Road ID – perhaps you’ve heard of it. If you haven’t, go to their website and check it out. Road ID is a great product that could save your life someday.

When I ordered, they gave me a coupon that I could pass along to my friends. Here’s the coupon number:

Review: Julie’s Organic Ice Cream Sandwiches with Glutenfreeda Cookies

The other day I was browsing my local health food store, always trouble, when I walked by the freezer aisle and these babies popped out at me:  Julie’s Organic Ice Cream Sandiwches.


Not only were they gluten-free, but they were on sale, making them impossible to resist.  They still ended up being about $1/sandwich, but let me tell you, they were well worth it. 

Being the nice mother that I am, I basically just had a bite of one of these sandwiches & let Jon enjoy the rest.  He was in heaven!!  He has begged me to go back & get more.  He told me that when he gets his allowance he is going to give me the $$ to get him some more!  LOL!



The chocolate cookie, made by Glutenfreeda, has a great flavor & texture & the vanilla ice cream is heavenly.  This is the perfect treat for a hot summer day!
