- Gazebo Room Greek Dressing & Marinade
This dressing is like a punch of flavor to your mouth. Why? Let’s all say it together. M! S! G! That’s right. This Greek salad dressing has MSG and I’m glad it does. It’s so robust and would be wonderful poured over crunchy raw vegetables.
- Idahoan Hidden Valley Ranch Potato Shreds
I don’t know why these exist or what they are for, but I love them. They taste like delicious shredded potatoes with a creamy sauce and tons of ranch flavor. And I’m talking about ranch made with the packet, not the ranch from the bottle, and that should tell you everything you need to know.
- SToK Pumpkin Creamed Cold Brew Coffee
Please ignore the cringe packaging that says things like “OMG #PUMPKINSZN.” This tastes great! It’s not too pumpkin spice-y and it’s not too sweet. It tastes like a well crafted coffee beverage and you don’t need to add anything to it. Just pour it over ice or drink it as is.
- Earthbound Farm Organic Caesar Salad Kit
This is a perfect salad kit. It comes with parmesan shreds and garlicky croutons. The caesar dressing perfectly blends creaminess and a bright, citrusy tang. The nice, crunchy lettuce is chopped up into perfectly sized pieces. I would be so happy to eat this alongside lasagna or as a light lunch by itself.
- Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets
I’m being honest: You don’t miss the gluten in these at all in these nuggets. The chicken is so juicy and moist. The breading is super well seasoned. Do not hesitate to buy these, even if you love gluten! They’d be perfect on their own or as the protein in a wrap or salad.
