On a scale of 1 - 10 I give this product a 15+
I've been gluten free for most of the year and am always looking for new gluten free products to try. I frequently go to the Dollar Tree to purchase some of my shipping supplies and always scan through the whole store just to see what they might have that I didn't see the last time I was there. When I went through the food section I spotted a bag of Cinnamon Apple Puffs. The package says - 0g Trans Fat; No Preservatives; Gluten Free; and No MSG. Right up my taste alley. I checked the other info and found they have 140 calories for about 47 pieces!; 1g of saturated fat; 15 mg sodium; and 3g of sugar. And that $1.00 bag has 3 servings making them even more desirable. So I bought a bag to try.
I couldn't wait to get them home and see if I had found a winner. First bite I knew I had. So far I've eaten them straight from the bag and last night I dipped them in my Cashew Butter for a taste that is heavenly.
I loved this product so much that I went back to the store a few days later and bought 5 bags, just in case they run out and don't restock. These aren't perfect for me but they are the perfect snack for kids. They are soft and virtually melt in your mouth.

On a scale of 1 - 10 I rate this a 20!
Many of you know that I've been looking for the perfect Greek seasoning that matches that used in one of my favorite Greek owned restaurants. Of course they won't tell me what they mix to get that delicious taste so I've been trying to create my own. I mix this and that and have come pretty close but not quite. It also takes a bit of time to gather all of the herbs and blend them just perfectly only to find you're running low on one meaning you have to run to the store to replenish. It's also hard to take when you get ready to sprinkle that tasty mixture over the chicken or pork chops you're planning on baking for dinner and find that you don't have enough.
Well, I've found the perfect solution! I was in Walmart a couple weeks ago checking out the markdown items. I spotted a container of Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning and decided that since it was in the markdown I might as well give it a try. Turns out it wasn't marked down at all. Across from the markdowns were the spices. Someone had stuck it back in the wrong place and boy am I glad they did!
This seasoning is perfect!!!! I don't have to mix nor fix anything. It has the perfect blend giving me the same taste I get from the restaurant. I have a feeling they wouldn't give me the recipe for their seasoning because they use Cavender's too.
I've put this on my chicken and pork chops whether I'm baking or grilling. I added some to my stew meat that went into my soup. I can't wait to use it on cube steak to give it perfect taste. With this you don't need salt, pepper, garlic or any other seasonings. This has it all! I also gave some to my neighbor and she put it in her mashed potatoes and sprinkled it on her broccoli.
