Inhale! Breathe in that cool air. Exhale! Put up your shirt collar, wrap that scarf tighter around your neck and warm up your hot cocoa. Because winter is around the corner. Here’s what we’re doing to mark the change of season and well, simply change things up a bit!
We are introducing 8 new entrees and coming back with 2 old favorites!
Our Cheese and Cracker Plate has an exciting new change this week. We’ve swapped out the cracker, and this entrée is now gluten-free!
This was a commonly requested change from our parents, and after months of searching and testing countless options, our nutritionist, Carly, found the perfect cracker - Milton’s Gluten Free Crispy Sea Salt Baked Crackers. Crispy and delicious, the Milton’s Baked Crackers got rave reviews in our Choice Voice Kid Tasting Panel. As an added bonus, they’re Certified Gluten Free and Non-GMO Project Verified, with 5 Grains in every bite.
Halloween ushers in the craziness of the Holiday season. Much time, thought, and effort go into making this holiday a fun one for our crazies. If your children are anything like mine, they’ve been debating and discussing what they’re planning to be for Halloween this year since last Halloween. As the holiday has gotten closer, they’ve likely changed their minds many, many times as to what their costume of choice might be and, in the process, you’ve likely lost your mind. It’s embarrassing to admit, but I’ve spent way too many hours searching for costumes, making costumes, exchanging costumes for appropriate sizes, and hunting down every last accessory to complete the outfit of choice.
…And it’s called “Just Your Average Wednesday”! What’s even more exciting is the blogger has officially taken over the usual Choicelunch blog and will be a permanent contributor. Can it get any better?
Why yes! The official blogger none other than our CEO, Justin Gagnon’s, wife, Allison Gagnon. She writes truthfully, honestly and hilariously about her love, her life, her kids and about careening through it all with a keen sense of awareness and observation.
