So long overdue, but here’s my EAT! Vancouver highlights!
Earth’s Own (… not Earth’s Oven as I first read it) was offering samples of their Organic So Nice Almond Milk! It was super refreshing and tasted better than my homemade almond milk (and 100x more convenient). I actually started buying this product after EAT! Vancouver.
Everything’s made of quinoa nowadays. These Eat Real Quinoa Chips were quite tasty. They sorta reminded me of Sun Chips.
Quinoa Granola! Told ya everything’s made of quinoa!
Liberte is one of my favourite yogurts :) That, and IOGO!
Daiya is a dairy-free cheese alternative. Surpringly, these little pizza slices were really tasty! Even though Daiya can’t completely replace dairy-full cheese in my life, they’re a great option to have.
Otimo Brazilian Style Cheese Puffs were one of my faves. Warm + soft + cheese + spices = yum!
hippoCHAN and I actually visited the Smoked Salmon station twice to double up on samples… you know, for science. Plus, the salmon was so darn tasty!
Pure Leaf Real Brewed Tea were really refreshing. I preferred the unsweetened kind, but the raspberry flavour was good as well.
Urban Fare was grilling up burgers. Aside from the delicious meat, the awesome thing was that all proceeds went to Children’s Hospital! Donating made the burger taste extra good.
Kitchening & Co. had an amazing display of macarons! hippoCHAN and I couldn’t resist but buy half a dozen! My favourite was the pistachio :)
Hint Fizz was the most ridiculous product I’ve ever seen… in my entire life… seriously. Gluten free, vegan and kosher water. Like Ceci said, I’d be worried if water wasn’t gluten free, vegan or kosher. To stir things up, I asked the rep, “What’s gluten?” – to which he replied, “Ughhh… it’s sorta like a chemical in other types of water.” Sounds legit.
