Day 350 – Kezza

Reminded of a dear friend, I turn to this little packet of Kez’s chocolate chip cookies:

It would go perfectly with a cuppa and as said before with this little packets, they should seriously consider providing them on flights!

Day 339 – Surprise gift

I was passed on a few gluten free items from someone who visited a food fair and thought of me.. how lovely!

This one is from an Australian brand – Kez’s and the florentine was divine! Super sweet and crunchy, with raisins and a glazed cherries… it’s usually not my thing but with a strong black coffee it goes down a treat! They should give these out on the airplanes instead of those crackers!

Day 283 – Sorrisi

A crazy few days of being on the go and consuming very little found me at one point when I was so hungry I actually went and got a sandwich forgetting that I shouldn’t actually eat them, so I just starred helpless at it.

Thank God for Schar, a great brand for gluten free and wheat free products! These little guys helped get through these days and they are pretty tasty things.

Day 280 – Ms. Nobody

Apart from being one of my favourite chocolate flavours, orange is also one of my favourite colours. It gets to the point that when I actually see an orange coloured item, I immediately take mental note and at times even verbalise it. If you hang around me enough you’ll soon know.

And so as I was on my way out to lunch, I clocked this orange cellophane packaging on my colleague’s desk and stopped short.

The orange item:

Me: “what’s that?” pointing, arm stretched across her face
L: “what? huh?” (I think she was more taken back by my sudden movement)
Me: “the orange thing”
L: (picking it up) jaffa cakes.
Me: ohh really? jaffa cakes…
L: do you want? (holding them out)
Me: mmmm I do, but I shouldn’t (shaking my head, but not really moving from the side of her desk)
L: they’re all the way from the uk…
Me: ooh? (seriously rethinking my answer)
L: hmmm? (still holding them out in my direction)
Me: but I shouldn’t, really… should i? (looking at my other colleagues for support – the cakes have wheat, so hence my dilemma)

What happened next is actually a mystery… I think I actually did eat one as I walked into the lift, but then I remember saying how good I had been in not eating wheat-based items and left it at that. To be honest, both could have happened as I have witnesses to both paths being taken (I just double checked with two other people who were present, and they both seem to have wayward memories too). I’m quite happy if either of them did happen, “as long as you don’t choose, everything remains possible.” Just call me Ms. Nobody.

Day 259 – Oranginos

I am really like the Schar products and their jaffa cakes aptly called Oranginos are pretty darn good!

The cakey biscuit is a little dry but it works nicely with the gooey sweet orange filling and chocolate coating. It is matched well with a coffee. I think finishing off the box tomorrow will be easy.

Day 158 – Good golly molly

Wow. Molly Woppy’s Milk Choc Chunk are one of the best gluten free cookies I’ve had! Slighty crumbly, the bite size pieces fit easily in one mouth full and the generous chunks of chocolate are rich and creamy.

Another NZ treat by a creative duo with delectable baked goods including specialty items for gluten free and dairy free products. The gluten free coconut macaroons look amazing, I need to get my hands on them.

Day 157 – Bar of plenty

What a great name for a chocolate bar! Of course it’s from NZ with a clever play on a beautiful area called Bay of Plenty… well it’s made by Cadbury’s down south, and this one happened to be bought in Auckland.

That’s right, it’s Cadbury’s Berry Fruit and Vanilla Shortcake and it was delicious! Sweet, tart and buttery flavours melded with the chocolate and it was difficult not to finish the whole bar. It was probably a saving grace that there were plenty of people around to share the guilty pleasure this chocolate presented. It’s just sad that I won’t know when I’ll have the chance to enjoy one again. Sigh.

Day 142 – Farewell cookie

The last night hanging out in the hood with my bus buddy was bitter sweet. It was made sweeter by his homemade baked goods… is it gluten free? I asked. Erm half…? he replied. Not sure what he meant by that I decided to be polite, yet remaining cautious just broke off half a cookie.

There’s a special ingredient, he adds as I savour the first bite. It’s chocolate of course, but a special kind. Can you guess? Hmm… noting a nuttiness, I guessed snickers? Nope. Walnuts. Nope, I’d be surprised if you guessed it. It does have nuts. And chocolate. Taking another few bites… ahhh Ferrero Rocher! Yes:)

Ferrero Rocher cookies – they weren’t bad at all especially for a second time baker as he was. They had less sugar, flour and butter than the original recipe called for, but they were still tasty and had firm cake like texture. Perfect for an afternoon tea I reckon. I did have the second half, but sadly I didn’t take any pictures so you’ll have to imagine it or make them yourself. Note, a few Ferrero Rocher’s won’t hurt anyone.

Day 126 – Four thirty six

Ok I realise writing numbers won’t mean anything to anyone, but it doesn’t really matter. What does matter are these:

Well it should be singular, as there was only one left at the time of taking this pic. I had decidedly consumed the rest with a little help over the past few days. Good old Pam’s. Wheat-free, gluten-free and dairy-free dark chocolate chocolate chunk cookies! You know they mean busy when ‘chocolate’ is used twice in the name. Yep.

They’re quite a treat really, especially when you’re on such a specific diet and they actually taste pretty good! Again, as with most chocolate chip cookies, have them a little warmed with a glass of milk – mmm perfecto (try almond or coconut if you can’t do the cow milk version).
