Gimbal's Sour Lovers

Gimbal's comes so close to getting it right for today's discerning parent- they use real sugar and natural fruit juices in their gummies and jelly candies and their sweets are free of 8 major allergens, but I really wish they would lose the artificial food dyes in favor of natural ones.

I received a sample of Gimbal's new Sour Lovers, which are tasty enough. They offer a tart zap of one of 12 flavors, and hooray for the natural fruit juice flavors, but those too bright colors and the dyes that make them are a turn-off.

This year as I head to the Sweets and Snacks Expo, I'm on the lookout for items that are made with real sugar and use natural food dyes. I'll be sharing my thoughts about the best of them over at Feed Our Families.

Disclosure: Gimbal's sent me three bags of Sour Lovers, but did not ask for or require a product review.

Gamer Grub Performance Snacks

With the Sweets and Snacks Expo just weeks away, I'm receiving all sort of interesting notices. I found an intriguing postcard in my mailbox this morning for Gamer Grub. It doesn't say much about the product other than these lines, which are sure to excite as many moms as gamers:

No keyboard crumbs
No greasy fingers

Could it be true?!

According to their site, Gamer Grub snack foods are also fortified with vitamins and neurotransmitters to keep gamers sharp. Though, ironically, their snail mail piece has a typo.

Still, the lack of crumbs and promise of clean fingers intrigues me; I'll have to look for them at the Show.
