|Sweet Earth Foods new breakfast pick-me-up.|
Other than being a complete scatterbrain, life has been super busy to the point of near exhaustion some days. With nineteen days until ASE installation, twenty-nine days until final reviews, and thirty-two days until graduation, the end of school is painstakingly near. Blood, sweat, and tears have been going in at six medium to large sized paintings. Six. Self-doubt is trying to take me down. And for all my love of art, I cannot let it.
Needless to say, here are three brand new comfort foods taking some of the edge off-- to my stomach that is.
|Yummy cute little morning sunshine.|
|I really enjoy Pretzilla Buns. Their soft, squishy exterior and pretzel-ly exterior from sausage buns to hamburger buns, bring on fun memories of obsessive Auntie Ann's days. Now the team has brought on Soft Pretzel Bites-- another hit!|
|Fifteen in a pack, these three serving portion snacks carry on traditional flavor-- pint sized, chewy, tasty treasures! Deliciously good alone or with a "cheesy" dip or mustard.|
|Nada Moo is finally here.|
|The ice cream is a refreshing taste of authentic peppermint flavor with bits of miniature chocolate chips in between.|
|I tried hard to not be one of those people who eats an entire pint in one sitting. I failed. Tremendously.|
Even if a company has "vegan" and "fair trade" certification labels adhered to its eloquent packaging, a consumer has a right to know where their chocolate hails from, whose hands are in this delicate process of harvesting the precious cacao bean. Are child's hands being whipped and labored? A willing adult's hands?
It's a sore subject to end on, but we cannot deny slavery's existence. A company may scream ethical intentions until kingdom come. The truth is in solidarity of food empowerment. Either you're standing with justice or you're not.
Edited: Nada Moo is officially recommended! I'm proud and overjoyed of the company's standards. Thank you for using fair trade, slave free chocolate. I look forward to the chocolate flavors of your fantastic ice cream.
