Annie’s Organic Cinnamon Rolls Review
A while back, we posted Immaculate Organic Crescent Cinnamon Rolls & Chocolate Honey Rolls. However, after finding their new organic line, I was out and about one day, and found these! Guess where??? Target! Interestingly, this isn’t at Whole Foods, or the Co-Ops I’ve been to. Although Immaculate has switched over to organic, I still had to give these a go. Remember, not everyone in the house is allergic to wheat. As usual, we weren’t paid for this review, or offered any free product.

Natural Nectar Sea Salt Crouton Review
If you’re allergic to corn, keep on scrolling. This review isn’t for you. In fact, I made the kids handle these with the utmost care because of the corn starch in it. I Didn’t need to have a corn bomb going off in the house…
Now that I’ve got my corn grumbles out of the way, on to the very positive review. The kids really enjoyed these, but I found their reasoning to be somewhat hilarious. Also, we were not paid for this review, or given the product for free. Read More
Simple Mills Paleo Cheddar Cracker Review
Once again, this was another product that I didn’t think to buy, until I remembered that I’m The Alergy Chef, and you guys need to know what tastes good. Hehe. Yes, I know, it’s silly to forget who I am. Full disclosure – we weren’t given this product or paid for this honest review. I bought these at the store, like a normal person.
So, only some people in the house were able to sample and review these for you. Let’s start with Kid Three, mister low/no sugar. I tried to make this uper official for him. He started by opening the bag and said “Mmm. They smell interesting.” He then took a closer sniff, then licked one. He says they don’t taste like anything when you lick them. Kid Two chimed in and said they look like wheat thins.
Then there was the first bite. Kid Three reported that they were pretty crunchy like wheat thins, but that they taste kinda funny. “They taste like they’re a little burnt. If I were to compare these to Annie’s Organic Cheddar Bunnies, I’d pick those, because I like them better. I don’t really like these.” WOAH. I was shocked. I thought for sure he would love these because he loves crackers, and he loves cheese. It’s a good thing I kinda didn’t believe him…
When the others got home, I had someone else try, and they instantly said that they taste good, like a cheese-it, but different. Then The Papa tried one, and said, “I don’t know why Kid Three doesn’t like them. They taste good.” So get this! Kid Three is watching the whole thing go down, and says he should try again, and that he likes them this time.
I’m sure it was the peer pressure that got to Kid Three. However, The Papa liked them, and the other person (who likes processed food) enjoyed them too. That, to me, is the sign of a great product. When people who are use to overly processed foods give you the thumbs up, you’ve done well.
If I could personally eat these, I’m sure I’d agree with The Papa. Here’s what I like: when they’re on sale, it’s a good price. It’s Paleo, which is way cool. It’s a cracker!! That’s Paleo!!! That gives it a huge thumbs up in my book. The ingredients aren’t trashy, and there are only a few of them in the first place. As a brand, I’ve been pleased with what Simple Mills is trying to accomplish. I truly look forward to seeing the demand increase, so that hopefully the price can go down a bit. The next time you’re at the store, give them a try. They come in other flavors too.
Enjoy Life Muffin Review
Have you seen these in a store near you lately? I was in the City a few months ago and saw these, read the ingredients, and was very pleased because it wasn’t full of junk. However, I didn’t feel compelled to purchase it since we already have a go-to recipe of our own. Time goes by, and it hits me. Duh! You’re The Allergy Chef. You owe it to the internet to buy this and make the kids eat it so you can write about it on the blog. So, that’s why we’re here today. Full disclosure: We weren’t paid or given this product in exchange for a review. However, it was on sale at the store, if that counts for anything. (yes, still working on my comedy routine)

In addition to the muffin mix, I also used this as an opportunity to use their mega chunk chocolate chips. In general, I don’t use these often, as the kids seem just happy with the mini chocolate chips that Enjoy Life makes. Read More
Tolerant Green Lentil Pasta Review
Nope. I’ll start with that. Now, since we’re still using the induction cook top, I’m going to give Tolerant a little benefit of the doubt, and think that maybe I did something a bit wrong when cooking these. However, I did follow the instructions. Nope. That’s the word of the post. Their other products have all worked really well for us, but nope. These had a strange smell, everyone said they tasted funny, and as you’ll see in the photos, they didn’t cook up very well. I was able to save them a little bit with some seasonings, however, the only reason they were eaten was because, waste not want not. Read More
Justin’s Maple Almond Butter Product Review
As you may (or may not know) Kid Three can’t have much cane sugar, and eats as organic as possible. He can’t handle chemicals, colorings, and pesticides. So, to my surprise, I saw this great little product at the store, and thought of Kid Three. He was very happy to give this a try. So, here are our notes, and official review. Full disclosure: we were NOT paid for this, and I did not eat it, but am rewriting what Kid Three told me. 🙂
