We Heart Carol Kicinski & Expo West Recap Pt. 2
During our trip to Natural Products Expo West earlier this month, the Wholesome Sweeteners Team had the pleasure of spending time with the wonderful Carol Kicinski. For those of you who don’t know Carol, it’s about time you do! First of all, she is an acclaimed chef and author. She is also the brain child behind the highly successful website, Simply Gluten-free. Her website, which receives more than 500,000 hits per month, is a heaven–sent resource for anyone who looking to live a gluten-free life. You can check out her website for delicious gluten-free recipes (and photos), recommendations on products to use, and great blog entries.
As a treat for Expo West attendees, Wholesome Sweeteners hosted a book signing with Carol. The first lucky 100 fans would get a copy of Carol’s new book, Simply Gluten-free Desserts, and a bag of our newest product, Organic Coconut Palm Sugar, which isn’t even available in stores yet. Carol happens to have created the yummy recipe on the back of the Organic Coconut Palm Sugar bag. Her recipe for Gluten-free Sweet and Salty Brownies is to die for. So, people went nuts for a Carol’s new book and our new sugar! With a line curling around our booth, Carol graciously spent time with each fan, signing her book and giving people tips on how to use the Organic Coconut Palm Sugar. Here is a picture of Carol with another Wholesome Sweeteners supporter, Marilu Henner.
We really can’t say enough good things about Carol. It was truly inspiring to hear her fans talk about how she has helped them or their family members make the transition to a gluten-free life. Whether being gluten-free is a choice or a necessity, Carol helps guide her fans along the path to better health.
Thanks Carol! We<3 you and Thom! We look forward to many, many more delicious recipes.
Honest Tea is just plain good. With yummy flavors like Classic Green Tea and their new Honest Ade’s, we can’t get enough!
Pamela’s Products has always been a good friend to Wholesome Sweeteners. We stopped by their booth to see what delicious, gluten-free products they were showcasing. Their Chocolate Chunk Cookie mix is one of our all-time favorites.
Cascadian Farms had a beautiful booth. They showcased their extensive line of granolas. Try the oat and honey granola; it’s my personal favorite. Add some fresh, seasonal, and organic berries for a sweet touch.
We can’t wait to see all of our old friends and new friends at Natural Products Expo West 2013.
