Gluten Free Jelly Beans, Gummy Bears and Gummy Swirls, OH MY!
Easter is just around the corner and nothing is more perfect in the Easter Basket than something Organic and natural from Surf Sweets.
These are the best Organic and natural candies that are made with natural colors and flavors from fruit juices. Surf Sweet candies are made in a dedicated Nut-Free facility and are Gluten Free, Dairy/ Casein Free, No Corn Syrup and No GMOs. You can feel good about giving your children (and yourself) Surf Sweets anytime. Kids like to eat candy, so when they just want to be a kid, feel good that you choose Surf Sweets because they also have 100% RDA of Vitamin C. Surf Sweets are actually good for them. We won’t tell them if you don’t.
I love Surf Sweets Spring Mix Organic Jelly Beans especially around Easter. I love to put them in little serving dishes when guests come over to the house. They look like a pretty little edible bouquet of fresh blossoms! The Spring Mix comes in 6 flavors – Tropical Punch, Lemonade, Mixed Berry, Pineapple, Tangerine and Watermelon! Not only are these Organic Jelly Beans Gluten Free but they are Vegetarian as well.
I’ll bet you have fond memories of gummy bears as a kid! I know I do. We used to lick the back and stick them on our collar and wear them all day around school. It was what the “cool kids” did! I remember bringing a bag of gummy bears on field trip days and sharing my bag with everyone. I loved all of the flavors but especially the red ones! The bag never lasted past the bus ride to our destination that morning but we all sure had fun with our gobbling up our gummy bears. Such a fun kid memory. I think that is why I pick up a bag when I see them at the store every now and then. I like to have them around to put in my picnic bag or for a road trip. I make sure to buy the Surf Sweets because they are Gluten Free, Organic and natural. I want the best, no guilt treat and maybe I just want to feel like a kid for awhile too!
Tell the Easter Bunny to check out the Surf Sweet website to find the closest store to buy them locally or contact them to ship directly to your home. I buy mine Whole Foods Market, PCC and natural food stores. I am a real customer.
Thank you to Surf Sweets for sending me a Spring package of treats pictured in this post. The opinions expressed are solely mine. Thank you to Surf Sweets for following my blog all these years!

Just a few simple ingredients to make a new kind of pesto that will make your taste buds dance with joy! Use as a topping on your home made Gluten Free Pizza, Gluten Free Pasta or on top of crusty bread or crackers.
This new pesto is sure to be your favorite and is good for you.
The Lacinato Kale is packed with vitamin C, K, beta carotene and calcium.
Organic Kale & Marcona Almond Pesto
5-6 Organic Lacinato Kale leaves
1/2 cup Marcona Almonds
2-3 Organic garlic cloves
1 green onion
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup Spanish Olive Oil
pinch Matiz Espana flor de sal
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
Add all of the ingredients, chop and blend in a food blender/mixer or processor.
Pour into a jar and place into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours prior to serving to let it meld!
The acid from the lemon juice will help to break down the kale and the saltiness will compliment the sweeter side of the Lacinato Kale aka Dinosaur Kale.
I am going to add this to my homemade GF Pizza tonight and add dry roasted tomatoes, artichokes and peppers.
I know it will be amazing with fresh GF pasta and I have already had several tasting samples on my favorite crusty GF bread and crackers.
Great way to get your super greens into your weekly menus at home.
This one gets my GF Fav vote !
1 1/2 cups Organic frozen corn - add at the end

I am so glad they did!
The also make Beef Pho, Chicken Pho, Vegetarian Pho and Tom Yum!
