Ultimate Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie

Nuchia Foods Corporation has a recipe for a gluten free chocolate chip cookie made from its alternative flour. Their Original Chia Seed Flour is an all purpose baking flour that does not require any additives plus it is loaded with omega-3, protein and insoluble fiber. Original Chia Seed Flour bakes and taste remarkably similar to whole wheat. It can be substituted 1 for 1 for highly processed wheat flour.

Nuchia Foods Original Chia Seed flour is the only flour of its kind. It is not just ground up Chia Seeds offered by other companies, it is an all purpose alternative flour made from a special process.

Nuchia is releasing a full line of Gluten Free Snacks in April and has released the recipe for its Ultimate Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie. You can wait and find it in your stores or try it for yourself.

Sugar Rush? Sweet Tooth? Retro Sweets are back!

Friday the 5th of February 1953 may not stand out in your mind but when you think about it this date actually probably had a BIG impact on your childhood; why? Because it marks the day when the Government ended sweet rationing of course! Meaning the sugar rush felt by kids all across the nation was well and truly back. It is also the reason that when you were growing up you had so much choice and freedom with the amount of sweets that were on offer to you.

Welcome to the Retro Sweet Shop!

Black jacks, cola bottles, dolly mixtures, caramac bars, drumstick lollies, flying saucers, love hearts, fruit salads, dip dabs, milk bottles and much more – Did you think they’d disappeared? Think again! All of your favourites are now back, ready for you to relive the old days.

I bet the mere mention of the above has taken you down memory lane and dug up concepts of your childhood. Going to the tuck shop in your break time to buy rainbow drops, trips to the corner shop to pick up some gobstoppers, walking home f r o m school with a bag of cola cubes and hanging out with friends sharing all your favourites; sweets have been a part of our childhood and we all had our favourites but why should we abandon these sweet delights just because we are older? Let’s carry on the tradition and start satisfying our sweet tooth again!

Thanks to the Internet boom there are now websites emerging that provide you with a huge range of retro chews, chocs, lollies, yummy gummies, treats and bubblegum as well as retro bars. The choice is so big that it is guaranteed to satisfy even the sweetest tooth and best of all they can make the perfect gift.

Treat your loved ones with traditional, retro sweet gifts

Whether you are looking to buy for yourself or someone special, retro sweets are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. A prime example of when they make the perfect gift is a 21st or 30th birthday of one of your oldest friends, someone who you used to go to the corner shop with to buy sherbet sticks. Buying a gift hamper of retro sweets will bring back all the childhood memories of all the time the two of you spent together; what a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion!

Maybe you are looking to treat your special other half? Love hearts, Parma violets and strawberries and cream hard boiled old fashioned sweets are a cute, romantic way of staying I love you.

If you are looking to say thank you to a family member, such as your Grandma then think back to when you were young and how she always carried your favourite traditional sweets in her bag; why not repay the favour? Visit an online store and make your own gift bag of sweets, which includes all of her favourites and all of those classic sweets she used to keep especially for you. Not only does this provide her with lovely treats but it also demonstrates how much you appreciate everything she used to do for you and how much you love spending time with her.

What if the person you are buying the retro sweets for doesn’t really have any memories of them f r o m their childhood? Maybe they were too young or just never really indulged. In cases such as this I say let them start to create some memories now! Introduce them to the sweets that meant a lot to you when you were growing up because remember your never too young or too old to get stuck into some sweets!

If you are looking to treat someone with a selection of sweets then DON’T rush out to your local shop; all you’ll find there are a limited selection of modern sweets, what you need to do it get yourself to an online sweet shop. Visit a site that specialises in retro sweets f r o m decades such as the 70’s and 80’s and you will be amazed at what you can find. All the classics and all your favourites will be on there; all that’s left for you to do then is to pick which ones you want, so start looking now and create the perfect gift and trip down memory lane.

Old World Gourmet has been in the business of selling frozen wine chillers for 6 years. Dan and Deanna Sullivan attribute the success of their company to the grace of God, commitment to succeed, and always exceeding our customer’s expectations. “Success for us is truly measured by our customer’s complete satisfaction.” Deanna states.

Old World Gourmet actually made its debut on September 11, 2001… (Yes that date is correct). Dan reflected back to the day the business started, “We were in Philadelphia at the National Candy Show. Certainly we will never be able to forget that day.”

Old World Gourmet will be celebrating their 6th year in business on September 11, 2007. “Our parent company “Nuts for You” started in 1996 in Florida with two products, cinnamon and sugar glazed nuts and my grandmother’s “church punch” which later became our signature “Old World Cider”.

They manufacture all of their products from the actual item to the custom bags that they go into. All are hand-crafted and hand assembled one bag at a time. Merchants who have developed a working relationship with Old World Gourmet are able to take advantage of their private labeling for resellers. If there is a frozen wine cooler on the market, it likely got its start at Old World Gourmet.

Their products can be found in locations such at The Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, Tampa Airport, Orlando Airport, Hallmarks, Theme parks, Boutiques, Hospital gift shops, and hundreds of retail shops.
