Gluten Free Treat Ideas: Cocomels - An Amazing Sweet Treat That Is Gluten-Free (or Dairy or Soy Free)



Being gluten intolerant has created some challenges for me. From being cautious with foods I'm selecting to researching the menu of a restaurant I visit to refraining from letting my sweet tooth guide what I eat before I have the chance to inspect ingredient lists. And when I had the chance to try out "Cocomels" I couldn't wait to see what they were like.

Cocomels were started by founder "JJ" who wanted a company that was like Willy Wonka with a twist - candies healthier for our bodies. And then the experimentation began! He tried out different treats and recipes to create this tasty before you treat. Read more about Cocomels beginnings over on their About page.

I received a few different varieties to try! I tried the Espresso, the Sea Salt, the Original and the Vanilla. You know at first I was a little wary, because I thought at first it was hard candy when I took a look at what the Cocomels were like. But they soften as you start to enjoy them and they taste so uniquely sweet. They have a gentle coconut flavor complimented by their corresponding flavors. My favorite of all was Sea Salt. I absolutely enjoyed that!

I actually think these are a PERFECT treat for someone that maybe isn't able to enjoy the usual candies and chocolates out there. I had a coworker who couldn't have dairy or soy and I offered her some and she was so happy! I think this is a great way to surprise someone who maybe can't always enjoy the usual treats that other people do.

And you know for a variety pack of 4, it's $21.99 right now! I think that's an amazing deal and worth buying that's for sure. They also offer chocolate covered cocomels and I would love to try those, I'll bet they would be amazing. Check them out.

Be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

I'm also so happy to announce that one of my lucky readers will win a Cocomels Prize Pack! Enter via Rafflecopter below. Ends 3/5.

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.

If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.

So that's when subscription boxes can help. It's an excellent way of finding new things to try, getting some extra snacks, and opening up your horizon to new foods. Whether you are celiac or gluten-intolerant or simply eat gluten-free by choice, it's time to broaden those horizons!
