Absolutely Gluten Free pizzas are available in two varieties: Mozzarella and Non Dairy Mozzarella Style topping. Individual pizzas are just 57 calories each and contain only 1.7 grams of fat or 2.0 grams of fat.

Ricky’s Lucky Nuts is all about creating a unique snacking experience and they don’t do just any nut. They do peanuts because they think they do peanuts better than anybody.
Most people think that gourmet nuts don’t include peanuts. They think of cashews and almonds as gourmet, but peanuts are the most popular nut in America.
Ricky’s has a nut like no other because their process is truly unique. They take the world’s best flavors: chipotle, coffee, curry, chai and coarse black pepper, the sweet, salty and spicy tastes that people love, and dry roast them in their own secret way. The flavors bind directly onto the nut. Instead of candied or dusty, the roasted-on process creates an amazing little, flavor packed Lucky Nugget. The taste sensation is a bang, not a whimper.
These roasted nuts are all natural and healthy with no artificial ingredients of any kind and create a memorable taste experience from honest, unadulterated ingredients. Plus, the sweet and salty nuts are GMO free. Ricky’s Lucky Nuts work with local and regional businesses to source many of their goods and services. That supports local economics and reduces their carbon foot print through reduced transportation cost. Ricky’s nuts are grown in Texas and all the packaging is made in the USA and is recyclable.
Ricky’s Lucky Nuts flavors include Black Pepper and Sea Salt that has a little bit of heat with a satisfying taste. Real Coffee will perk up your senses and is made with real coffee. Thai Red Curry is all natural red curry that features a bold and exotic flavor. It is the perfect afternoon and late night snack. Sweet Chai has a hint of cane sugar with a whole lot of flavor. Other favorites include Sweet and Smoky BBQ, a sweet smoky nut with a tangy taste of BBQ. Spicy Chile Chipotle has a touch of chipotle seasoning and a bold flavor of delicious heat.
Ricky’s Lucky Nuts make the ideal individual or corporate gift box. They are available at grocery and convenience stores, gift and gift basket companies, food catalogs, gourmet and specialty retailers or online at www.rickysluckynuts.com.
Veggie Patch, which makes vegetable-based foods, announced today the debut of two new unique creations: Roasted Red Pepper Falafel and Moroccan Red Lentil Cakes.
Veggie Patch’s new Roasted Red Pepper Falafel offers a tasty twist on one of the brand’s top sellers, its Classic Falafel. Combining the palate-pleasing tastes of red pepper and hearty chickpeas with the brand’s unique blend of falafel spices, the new Roasted Red Pepper Falafel’s outstanding flavor profile allows it to be served on its own or incorporated into another dish.
The new Moroccan Red Lentil Cakes are a delectable and healthy snack made from 70 percent vegetables. A blend of red lentils, carrots and zesty spices, the tasty cakes deliver a mouthful of flavor, while also providing an excellent source of protein (8 grams per serving).
Veggie Patch’s new Roasted Red Pepper Falafel and Moroccan Red Lentil Cakes have a suggested retail price of $4.49 and are rolling out this month in the produce section of grocery stores nationwide.
The two new vegetable products debut as attention increases on the benefits of vegetables. From the First Lady’s healthy school lunch initiative and revisions set forth by the U.S. Department of Agriculture stating that half of one’s plated meal should consist of vegetables, to recent obesity studies that have brought healthy eating to the forefront, increasing attention has been paid to adding more vegetables to American diets. Vegetable purchases have grown by 14 percent over the past five years and are expected to experience a double-digit increase over the next five years.
“These mouth-watering new products are as flavorful as they are exotic, and as healthy as they are convenient,” said Adam Carr, CEO of Veggie Patch. “We’re proud to lead the way in introducing unique and great tasting items that excite and appeal to our consumers.”
Prior to these new product launches, Veggie Patch most recently introduced its Mediterranean Patties this past December. The unique patties contain an exotic blend of Mediterranean spices combined with spinach and chickpeas.
In addition to its new products, Veggie Patch is also debuting a new look, including a modernized logo and updated package complete with mouth-watering photography and suggested preparations for the items. Each product now features a more descriptive name that better speaks to the item’s flavor profile, such as the full-bodied sweetness of the Roasted Red Pepper Falafel and the unique spices of the Moroccan Red Lentil Cakes.
“We know a lot of people eat with their eyes and for a product as distinctive and delicious as Veggie Patch, it starts with the product photography,” continued Carr. “We’re especially proud of our new look because it undoubtedly gets consumers excited about our products, both new and current.”
The complete Veggie Patch line consists of eleven products, including its well-known Savory Spinach Bites and Garden Broccoli Bites, which are two of the brand’s more kid-friendly products. All items are nutrient rich, non-GMO and contain 0 trans fat.

Robert Rothschild Farm has recently achieved organic certification for its manufacturing facility located in Urbana, Ohio. Robert Rothschild Farm produces sauces, dips, preserves, mustards, spreads and other gourmet products that are all natural, gluten free and kosher.
“We are conscientious of current healthy lifestyles and want to provide the consumer what they desire,” said Jim Gordon, President & CEO of Robert Rothschild Farm. “We felt compelled to provide organic products that tasted great. Taste should not be compromised when seeking organic products using non-GMO ingredients.”
This year celebrates Robert Rothschild Farm’s 30th anniversary of producing specialty foods. “Creating organic products shows our commitment, not only to high-quality, flavorful products but taking our company to the next level,” said Gordon.
“Organic foods are a growing market in which Robert Rothschild Farm is well positioned to produce and provide these essential products,” said Gordon. “We look forward to leading the specialty food industry and bringing our consumers the finest in organic, open and serve products that they have come to expect from us.”
Robert Rothschild Farm is continually recognized as one of the top gourmet food manufacturers in the United States and has been honored with numerous awards for its branded product line, but the company also produces gourmet products under many private labels. “By obtaining our organic certification, we can expand our current product offering and extend organic production to our private label customers,” said Gordon.
Robert Rothschild Farm will initially introduce a new line of organic products at the upcoming Summer Fancy Food Show, June 29 – July 1, 2014. This new line of organic products will launch the beginning of the Robert Rothschild Farm movement to convert the majority of its current product offering to be organic certified.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Chips distill all the flavor and aroma of a classic cookie into crunchy, shatteringly delicious “thins.” Equal parts nostalgic and new, the discs are designed to inspire love at first bite, and keep cookie lovers reaching into the bag for “just one more.”
Oatmeal raisin cookies rank among America’s favorite cookies of all time, and they’ve always been on the short list for Joanne Adirim, the creator of Cookie Chips and Founder/Pastry Chef at HannahMax Baking Company, their manufacturer. “Our thin, crunchy renditions of other classics like chocolate chip and cinnamon sugar cookies have been so well received that we knew it was time to give lovers of the wholesome oatmeal cookie their due,” says Adirim, “We started with an old family recipe, using whole rolled oats and juicy mini-raisins, and added extra spark with cinnamon and nutmeg.”
The Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Chips ingredients label reads more like a passionate home baker’s shopping list than a typical supermarket shelf offering. Like all Cookie Chips flavors, this new offering is made only with the finest milled cane sugar, rBST hormone-free butter, cage-free eggs and pure Bourbon vanilla. There are never any preservatives, artificial flavors or colors, trans fats, or GMOs.
All that flavor and texture in such a small space (each cookie is about 2 inches across and only 1/16 of an inch thick) is a winning proposition. One serving of Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Chips – five cookies — weighs in at just 120 calories. They’re a perfect summer picnic dessert, after school snack, or coffee break treat.
Oatmeal Raisin launches late summer 2014 and joins five signature Cookie Chip flavors – Original Brown Sugar, Cinnamon Sugar, Chocolate Chip, Sea Salted Peanut Butter, and Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip.
Cookie Chips are available at Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, Whole Foods, Jewel, Fresh Market, Earth Fare, Gelson’s, New York City’s iconic Zabars, and at specialty grocers and gourmet stores across the U.S. To find a location near you or to purchase online, visit www.crunchycookiechips.com.
