Enjoy Life Foods Has a New Snack–Plentils!

I have a confession. I miss Cheetos. Yes, I know they have no nutritional value. Yes, I know they’re not good for me. I still miss them from time to time. That, and Bavarian cream donuts with chocolate frosting.

But I digress.

Once on Twitter I made a comment that I missed Cheetos, that I wanted a crunchy cheesy snack. Enjoy Life Foods’ Chief Marketing Officer Joel replied, “Just wait, we’re working on something new.”

Oh, the suspense!

Then I got The Email…”Would you like to test these for us?” Are you kidding? Of course!

When the Enjoy Life Foods box arrived (which Dr. J has been able to identify and read for over a year), I opened it in the leasing office where I picked it up. I thought, why not have a taste test with folks who don’t HAVE to eat gluten free (or some other special diet). Enjoy Life Foods sent me one bag of each of the four flavors–Light Sea Salt, Garlic & Parmesan, Margherita Pizza, and Dill & Sour Cream.

Enjoy Life Foods Not Nuts Seed and Fruit Mixes

The wonderful folks at Enjoy Life Foods sent me another great product to test: Not Nuts Seed & Fruit Mixes. If you are not familiar with Enjoy Life Foods, their products are free of the eight top allergens, which is awesome for those of us whose kiddos are super sensitive to some of those allergens!

When I opened the package, I wasn’t sure I’d get my super picky Aspie to try the mix–too many new things at once, especially things that look a lot like things he doesn’t like. However, he does enjoy testing products, and, drum roll please, the Mountain Mambo mix has Enjoy Life Foods’ mini chocolate chips in it! So, we started with that, and I managed to get Dr. J to try it. That was all for him (he’s been anti-raisins for a while now, so any dried fruit is out of the question!). HOWEVER… Continue reading


Enjoy Life Foods Crunchy Cookies

“Mommy, can we test the Enjoy Life cookies?” Meatball asked this question every day until, quite sadly, I had to say, “There aren’t any left.” I almost felt like we needed a moment of silence, they were that good!

First choice, with thumbs up from Meatball

Enjoy Life Foods sent us four boxes of their new crunchy cookies to taste test. Dr. J now recognizes their label! He wanted to taste test the Double Chocolate first, and of course this chocoholic mommy did not protest!

Remember, Enjoy Life Foods products are free of the top 8 food allergens. Could that kind of product make a double chocolate cookie that tastes “real”? Continue reading
