Wonderful Gluten Free Options with Van's!

Disclosure:  I received one or more products in this post in exchange of an honest review.  All opinions are my own.

Gluten Free!  Gluten Free!!  We seem to be hearing Gluten Free being said everywhere but can you honestly say that you enjoy the Gluten Free products on the shelves in your stores?  There are quite a few that I tolerate, but now that I've found a really great brand that puts out quality, great tasting Gluten Free products... I'm sold!  Big fan here!  I know I've told you about Van's before, but would you guess that they are back with two new lines of delicious tasting Gluten Free products?

The two lines of products I want to talk about today are their new pastas and granola.  Both of these products were a pleasant surprise for me!  

I don't typically eat a pasta that isn't mixed in with a red sauces these days, so when I was able to enjoy an old favorite.... You can just imagine how happy I was!  Van's new pasta line includes three varieties - Ultimate Cheddar Penne, Rotini & Red Sauce, and Creamy Herb & Garlic.    My favorite out of the two were Creamy Herb & Garlic.  It is so creamy and full of flavor!

Close behind in ranking is the Ultimate Cheddar Penne!  I added a little extra pizazz to my penne dish.  My little addition of ranch flavored chips was perfect!  

See, doesn't that look tasty?  Each variety is very easy to make.  Simply boil water, add pasta, drain pasta and add the sauce packet to the pasta.  The Cheddar Penne and Herb & Garlic require a little bit of milk and butter. 

Now I need to fill you in on the best Van's product I have ever tasted.  I'm pretty sure my husband would agree as when I asked him to try it for his opinion he didn't want to give the bag back and may have muttered something close to, "You never share the good stuff!" at me.  I do not feel bad for one second about not wanting to share the new Van's Granola.  It is truly...  The Bomb!

This granola comes in two varieties - Blueberry Walnut, that you can see above and Cranberry Almond.  These granolas contain whole grains and their own special variety of nuts and fruits!  My favorite is the Blueberry Walnut, but Cranberry Almond can definitely hold it's own!  Again, these products are Gluten Free, people!!  

A few ways you might eat Van's new Granola:
  • Mixed with your favorite yogurt as a parfait.
  • In a baggie on the go!
  • On top of ice cream.  Everything is great with ice cream, but I think this granola would be a perfect match! 
I know I'm leaving out about a million other ways to eat granola, but however you eat it...  Make sure it is Van's and make sure you enjoy it!
