I love to travel. (Seriously, check out my Map!)
2015 took me to Europe. And 2016 is taking me to Oceania.
My added tourist attraction is finding restaurants where I can eat. But, it turns out that it’s equally exciting to find new allergy friendly companies! (Many are small businesses that only exist within a local demographic.)
While I didn’t spend that much time in Copenhagen, I found these gummies that left some of my friends raving. So I figured it was worthwhile to share my Danish food finds! (Two of which my amazingly generous sister bought prior to my arrival!)
Find #1: Sugar Sin Happy Jellies (Recommended)
These sour shots are the treat that had my friends raving. They’re extra chewy, so you only eat a couple at a time. And, they feel like a gourmet gummy.
The first kind (my favorite) is a sour shot. It’s not as sour as a typical sour candy in America, so it’s actually enjoyable to eat. I continued to eat these throughout my journey, and you should note that they’re good for takeoff and landing while flying.
The wild hearts are pretty good, but not my favorite. They’re smaller and thus a bit harder (less chewy). But, these are a great alternative for the faint of heart when it comes to sour flavors.
I honestly forgot that these candies are also vegan, so for a vegan gummy type treat they are highly recommended!
Find #2: Dove’s Farm’s Double Chocolate Cookie (Not Recommended)
I didn’t mind these cookies, but I think it’s simply because I’ve been eating gluten, dairy, and egg free for so long! The cookies don’t have a distinct chocolate flavor, they simply taste as though they were flavored with something that was not vanilla. Additionally, they’re large cookies, but they’re rather dry, so you’ll need some water.
I’m not saying don’t give these cookies a chance, but maybe start with Dove’s Farm’s pasta, that’s a bit better!
Find #3: Against the Grain’s Ginger Crunches (Recommended)
Against the Grain’s Ginger Crunches were not my favorite cookie/biscuit of all time. However, that’s because I’m not much of a tea person. If you like to accompany your morning or afternoon tea with a bite of biscuit, then my sister claims these are actually pretty good.
The ginger flavor is so strong that there isn’t a strong gluten free aftertaste. They’re also very thin and crispy if that’s what your after. Overall, a good option for many!
Finally, I’m sharing these tasty finds with all my friends at Fiesta Friday, my favorite party in the blogosphere. Thanks to Margy @ La Petite Casserole and Su @ Su’s Healthy Living for co-hosting! My Internet speed isn’t too quick, so I’ve struggled to keep up with y’all. (Sometimes the comment boxes don’t pop up! But, I promise I’m reading along!)
