Robert's American Gourmet Pirate's Booty

Robert's American Gourmet Pirate's Booty

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Gluten Free

Head’s up parents, these are your new “cheesy poofs”. Baked puffs of rice and corn made with aged white cheddar. There are not so many ingredients in this, making it healthier snacking option for kids. No preservatives and the use of expeller pressed oils are both good things. The corn meal listed is not organic so we are not sure if it’s GMO or not, which definitely drops it a star in that category. They also don’t list if the rice is white or brown. This is not a low-glycemic snack.

Ian's Gluten-free Animal Cookies

Ian's Gluten-free Animal Cookies

Dietary Needs:
Gluten Free

Made with organic ingredients, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. It is difficult for parents to find animal crackers that are gluten-free so we are happy that Ian’s is doing this! Their products contain no hydrogenated oils but they do use cane juice. We would gladly give them an extra star if they used a lower glycemic sweetener like brown rice syrup, coconut sugar, fruit juice or even agave nectar. Much better option compared to conventional brand like Oreo's or Chips Ahoy, but Nana's cookies would be a better option. Definitely check out the rest of their products because they make a whole line of healthier chicken nuggets and other products that are dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free and nut-free.

Nana's Gluten Free Cookies

Nana's Gluten Free Cookies

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

A Whole Journey favorite! Nana’s are a local San Diego company and we love them. They make a GREAT tasting cookie that is virtually free of anything allergenic. Many of our clients reach for Nana’s when they want something sweet because they are a great way to keep the sweetness but lose the sugar since they are naturally sweetened with fruit juice. Baked with all natural ingredients with No Dairy, No Refined Sugars, No Eggs, No Cholesterol, No Trans Fats, No Hydrogenated Oils, No Preservatives, and No GMOs. Nana's Cookies are vegan and kosher. Oh how we wish Nana’s would use all organic ingredients because then we could give them 5 stars! TWJ Select product nonetheless.  You will always find a few in our freezer and we highly recommend them!

Outside of sugar (organic dehydrated evaporated cane juice), most of the ingredients are very healthy, free of trans-fats and high fructose corn syrup. If they upgrade their sweetener to fruit juice, coconut or palm sugar, they would be a WJ select product. The gluten-free line is mostly free of dairy and corn.
