I am so excited to be able to work with Van’s food again!
We are huge fans in this house! As evidenced in our continued love for the frozen foods! This first photo is of actual items currently in our freezer!⇒
Do you know why I love Van’s Foods?
The reaction from my kids. This is an actual quote from Hayden (my super picky diner) after trying the Van’s Soft Baked Whole Grain Granola Clusters (we received both Blueberry Walnut and Cranberry Almond to facilitate this tasty post)
Mom, you are finally giving me the GOOD snacks!
Honestly, the granola COULD NOT have arrived at a better time, since Hayden’s typical poor choice of snacks had begun to affect his digestion. Containing 12 grams of nutrient dense whole grains per serving and a whopping 8% source of dietary fiber (per serving).
A great big ol’ “Thank you” to Van’s from me and Hayden!
Little Henry has a mild peanut allergy, but he is okay-ed for Almonds, so this version worked for him, too!
Speaking to allergies, the other reason I love Van’s is because they make shopping easy for me! The selections are clearly marked and certified as Gluten-Free, Kosher, Dairy Free, Egg Free (I almost never can easily find egg- free options clearly noted) and contain NO artificial flavors and or colors! Thanks to Van’s Foods Henry gets to enjoy a lot of foods he had been missing out on!
Bottom Line: We LOVED LOVED LOVED both granola flavors and will definitely repurchase!
The NEW Van’s Granola is a perfect addition to parfaits, oatmeal and general baking! Wonderful solo and on the GO! The MSRP for a 11oz portion is $4.99
Van’s also sent the NEW Whole Grain Pasta (in the following flavors: Rotini & Red Sauce, Creamy Herb & Garlic and Ultimate Chedder Penne plus the awesome serving dish, collapsible strainer and wooden spoon- I have to say that strainer is probably my favorite kitchen tool EVER!)
The new pasta line up is gluten-free and dense in protein and whole grain!
In my opinion, this is an EASY, healthier alternative- whether you are a chef or “out-of the box” type of cook.
Vansfoods.com has wonderful recipes that turn these flavorful pastas into the “main event” OR box offers simple suggestions for pairings, as a side dish.
Either way your taste buds will be pleased with the simple ingredients and delicious seasonings used! Van’s products never disappoint in taste department!
Henry enjoyed 3 helpings of the Rotini & Red Sauce! LOL! To me, that review says it all!
Definitely check out the easy to follow recipes available with these pasta to add a bit of healthy variety to your menu planning. The best part is they are super easy to follow and use ingredients already in your kitchen! I could make most recipes on my tummy’s whim and desire!
The MSRP on the pasta is $3.99 and since it includes everything you need pasta and sauce, I consider that very comparative to the other brands!
So make the switch!
