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. It’s 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 don’t know about America, but it’s true that Nicole runs on Dunkin – 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 – not worth the fat and calories.
The texture was a little bit off – it was sticky and gummy and yuck. I hate messy foods. Glad to have tried it, don’t need to do it again.
But despite the Gluten Free donut fail, Tuesday was a win overall – my meeting was a success (in that I believe I didn’t 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 didn’t 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 I’m always compelled to do, but nobody ever wins these things, right?
So when a random box from a sender I didn’t know showed up on my doorstep, I thought perhaps I should call my local bomb squad. But I didn’t 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 – 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.
