New Finds at the Organic Food Show
Yesterday I had some extra time so I decided to check out the Organic Food Show taking place here in Chicago! As a publisher I'm lucky enough to be able to go to conventions as press. So, as a good journalist, I'll report my findings!
There's not enough room here to post everything that I found, but 2 items stick out in my mind. The first is Wagatha's Biscuits for dogs (made in Vermont). These treats (once I brought them home and shared them with Barkley my black Cocker Spaniel) are truly delicious (according to my finicky pup). He's very picky and only eats certain treats, however the Wagatha vittle was gone in one dog gulp! I really like the neat canister it comes in, too; because if you're like me, you want you doggie treats to last a while without getting "hard". My dog is getting on in years and a hard doggie treat would rate as paws down. I would rate Wagatha's 4 green thumbs UP! Purchase or Check 'em out at www.Wagathas.com
Another great find was Bare Fruit Snacks, the perfect goodie to keep in your car for busy car pool lines or traffic. These dried fruit snacks are soooo delicious! I sampled the dried pears. OH-MY-Goodness! They taste so good! What I love about these snacks is that they don't have that dried up raisin feel or taste; rather they are soft, easy-to-chew and just darn sweet (which is perfect for a sweet tooth such as myself). I give these snacks 4 green thumbs up. If you check out their website, you can purchase them online or find a retailer near you at, www.bearfruitsnacks.com.
Let's face it, we're going to eat treats from time-to-time, so let's make choices that will make a positive impact on Mother Earth. Choosing organic food is always a better choice!
Here's to the Best Day Ever,
