Jack’s Paleo Kitchen: Ginger Molasses Cookies

For someone who isn’t a big fan of ginger, I found these ginger molasses cookies to be a decent snack. The ginger taste isn’t as heavy as I expected. In fact, I’d say the ginger is a secondary flavor to the molasses. As advertised on the package, these cookies are soft-baked, and they are soft almost to the point of chewy.

The molasses is quite strong in these cookies so I could definitely see some buyers finding them a bit too sweet. It is also worth noting that these cookies do tend to crumble, and it is advised that they are kept in a cool and dry area.

This product gluten-free, non-GMO and nut-free (except coconut).

Rawesome? Awesome.

I wish I had a better photo of this product, but unfortunately, by the time I took it home and opened the packet, the cake was…let’s say, not in the best shape. Aesthetics aside though, Rawesome’s crème-brûlée vegan cake is delicious. The upper layer is a smooth and creamy mix, while the crust is made from a combination of cashews and brazil nuts. The cake is rich with many different flavors with other ingredients such as cocoa, maple syrup and coconut.

                A minor complaint from me is that the single slice serving that I got is quite small. If you’re someone who loves cakes, you’d probably want to buy a few more packets. Additionally, an 8-serving (medium) or 16-serving (large) version of this product is also available for purchase.

                This product is vegan-free, and all ingredients are organic. Contains nuts.

Delissitude Carrot Pineapple Muffins

When my roommate gets hungry, he likes to come and into my room looking for snacks. One evening, I answered his call for hunger and gave him a couple of Delissitude’s carrot pineapple muffins.

“Dude, these are pretty damn good.” he said.

And he’s right. These muffins are baked to perfection. They’re soft, munchy, and not too dry. There is a mild veggie/fruit taste, but Delissitude don’t go overboard with the flavors. In fact, I didn’t even realize the muffins were baked with pineapple until I looked at the ingredients list. It is a nice snack to have in the mornings, along with a good cup of coffee. Delissitude’s carrot pineapple muffins is a product I would repurchase. I recommend you give it a try.

This product is gluten, nut & dairy free.

Nairn’s Gluten Free Flatbreads – Cracking Stuff!

In the genealogical tree of baked goods, Nairn’s Gluten Free Flatbreads is more closely related to the Cracker family than the Flatbread family. So…it’s a strange choice to call these cracking delights ‘flatbreads’ if you ask me. Anyway, let’s get to the review, shall we?

Brought to the shores of Canada from our British friends across the pond, Nairn’s Gluten Free Flatbreads are crispy, fibre-rich, vegetarian friendly snacks made with gluten free wholegrain oats. There are three flavors of Nairn’s Gluten Free Flatbreads available on the market: Original, Rosemary & Sea Salt and Caramelised Onion. This review is based on the latter two.

Both flavors I’ve tried are nice and crispy, and I am not exaggerating when I say that they are comparable to regular crackers on the market. Just like regular crackers, this product shines best when eaten with something else. Nairn’s Gluten Free Flatbreads are like blank canvases that allows you mix and match different flavors and different textures. You can combine them with cheese, sour cream, salad and even meats. They are a fantastic snack to make for yourself or someone else. I also noticed that the flatbreads maintain its crispiness after the packet had been opened. I had a packet opened for a day and the flatbreads were just as crispy. So there’s absolutely no need to stuff your face from fear of turning stale!

If there is a negative about this product, it is this: I would say that both flavors are not great when eaten by itself. While the flavors are there, it is on the mild side. But honestly, I am nitpicking at this point. If you do decide to buy Nairn’s Gluten Free Flatbreads which I highly recommend, do yourself a favor by eating them with something else!
