#Winning


Friday, August 16, 2013

A few wins this week. First and foremost:



Yup, found the Sriracha chips ( wp.me/p1N36Q-fN ). On the hunt for cheesy garlic bread, and then my life will be complete.

Speaking of finds, I had to go to Hartford for meetings on Tuesday. Itís about a three hour drive, so my first stop upon arrival was to pop in to Dunkin Donuts next to the office to refuel. I donít know about America, but itís true that Nicole runs on Dunkin Ė particularly buckets of caramel coconut flavored coffee.

Anyway, it turns out that the Hartford location carries the Gluten Free product line I mentioned a few posts back ( wp.me/p1N36Q-cf ). I figured I should take the opportunity to try one, as who knows when it will make its way down to New Jersey.

Let me tell you Ė not worth the fat and calories.



The texture was a little bit off Ė it was sticky and gummy and yuck. I hate messy foods. Glad to have tried it, donít need to do it again.

But despite the Gluten Free donut fail, Tuesday was a win overall Ė my meeting was a success (in that I believe I didnít come off looking totally incompetent), I got a free birthday brownie ( wp.me/p1N36Q-fU ), AND I received an awesome surprise in the mail.

I wrote about my discovery of The Better Chip ( wp.me/p1N36Q-f7 ) in a vending machine at work a few weeks ago. Because I was so happy to have found a snack food I didnít feel terrible about eating, I started trolling the internet for news about the company and found that they run a weekly Facebook contest for free swag. I dropped my name in, as Iím always compelled to do, but nobody ever wins these things, right?

So when a random box from a sender I didnít know showed up on my doorstep, I thought perhaps I should call my local bomb squad. But I didnít know the number, so I just opened it:



How cool is this? I get to try all of their fab flavors AND I got a coupon for a free bag so that I can go get more of the one I like best.

So far, I tried the Spinach and Kale chips which I liked even better then the Roasted Red pepper. And I love the t-shirt Ė but I think the sizing is more appropriate for my cat. It will probably have to wait to be worn by a completely Wheat Free Nicole in a few months. Girly sizes always make me feel huge.

    Definitely a good week! After a long run today, I tried the jalapeno chips - just the right amount of spice! Spinach and kale still have my vote, though.

    The chips sound good. Too high in carbs for me, but my kids eat these by the bagful, and gluten free plus non-gmo sounds like a win to me!
