Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Rice Spaghetti Pasta: A Review

Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Rice Spaghetti: A Review

Trader’s Joe’s gluten free spaghetti in my opinion is not my first choice.  I personally buy it because the cost is cheap, $1.99 and it’s organic.  Maybe I still have memories of regular glutenized spaghetti, since its only been a year…This spaghetti sticks together (as is usual with brown rice pastas), which you can remedy slightly by adding extra salt to the water.  The spaghetti is also fairly gooey.  A little goes a long way, as in you can make yourself overly full if you eat too much, since it is very dense in the rice ingredient.

Ingredients: Organic brown rice and water

Package states: Gluten-free, sodium-free, Kosher certified, USDA organic, etc.

Cost: $1.99

***If anyone has found a favorite organic gluten free spaghetti feel to share in the comments.  Thanks!

Yummy Earth Sour Gummy Worms (Gluten free): Review

Yummy Earth Sour Gummy Worms (Gluten free): Review

I love gummy worms, especially sour gummy worms! You are never too old for gummy worms!  If you think your are, then you are not truly living! This is my absolute favorite dessert packaged treat!  I quit eating gummy worms though, because of the nasty ingredients.  Until I discovered Yummy Earth’s gummy sour worms!  They are organic and free of high fructose corn syrup.  Made with organic fruit juice, organic brown rice syrup, and organic cane sugar to sweeten!

Taste:  They aren’t really sour, they are just super tasty and fruity!  They are covered in sugar and very addictive.  Everything you want in a gummy worm!  I notice no taste difference, personally, compared to the nasty ingredient gummy worms.

Where to buy them?  Here or here
