Cascadian Farm Organic Dark Chocolate Granola is delicious and "can we have it again tomorrow" according to the kidlets. Same goes for their Sweet & Salty Peanut and Pretzel bars, although we'd like 'em better if they were crunchy not chewy. We're a crunchy granola bar family. Cost to you: Cereal and bars each around $5/box. Cost to me: Free.
Muir Glen 2008 Reserve: Halley Thirty-One-Fifty-Five Tomato (diced, in cans) sent as part of their Muir Glen Tomato Connoisseur's Club was MUCH appreciated by this tomato lover. From the site: This summer, on a two-acre plot in the Sacramento Valley, one of Muir Glen's partner growers planted the seeds of the Halley Thirty-One Fifty-Five tomato. The Halley, vine-ripened under certified organic practices, was hand-harvested and packed the same day creating Muir Glen's limited edition 2008 Reserve. It is sweeter than most, with an outstanding, robust flavor. Yes it is. It is delish--so good you can eat it straight from the can. This would make a unique holiday gift for anyone who loves to cook. Cost to you: $3ish per 14 oz. can (x 4 cans). Cost to me: Free.
Speaking of veggies My Drinkable Veggies from Lane Labs is a powdered blend of USA-certified organic vegetables (tomatoes, broccoli, carrots) that contains 2 full servings of vegetables. It can be eaten alone in hot water (as a soup) or can be added you meals to up the nutritional ante. I tried it as a soup and instantly added salt, pepper, and a sprinkling of garlic powder. Probably not what they had in mind, but it wasn't bad after that. Without flavoring it kinda tasted like cut grass. But, if you have a picky eater, I can see how this would be a useful item to have around the house. You can sprinkle it into pasta sauce, smoothies, etc. Cost to you: $19.95/box of 14 packets.
