Published by CPGgal under Food,Gluten Free,Grocery Stores

I have started a Gluten Free (well low gluten) for personal reasons and to see if I can feel a difference in my body and energy levels. It’s been about 2 weeks now and so far, nothing yet from an energy standpoint that I am noticing. What I have noticed is the amount of Gluten [...]

Commodity Prices are going up

Published by CPGgal under Food,Non Food

With commodity prices increasing what do you think that will do to consumer goods? You guessed it, prices are going to have to increase. Manufacturers have put off “real” price increases by bringing down the size of the products over the last few years, but with soaring costs and not much left to mini-size, prices [...]

Two Thumbs up for a Costco sample

Published by CPGgal under Costco,Food,Pulled Beef

Very often my husband and I visit Costco during a weekend and we are happy to try the samples, but many times they don’t motivate us to purchase anything. Today was different. There was a Jack Daniel’s BBQ pulled Brisket being sampled and it was quite tasty. So much so, that we purchased a package. [...]

Rockland Bakery – A must visit

Published by CPGgal under Food,Misc.

December 24, 2010 – For anyone that lives in the New York Metro area and happens to be on the Rockland side of the Tappan Zee Bridge, I strongly recommend stopping by the Rockland Bakery. It truly is a scrumptious experience. Their breads are so fresh that you actually go into the bakery oven area [...]

Bumble Bee Tuna

Published by CPGgal under Food,Grocery Stores

December 17, 2010 – While I was shopping this week I noticed Bumble Bee Tuna on sale for $0.88. What a great price I thought to myself, usually it’s about $1.00 on sale and it’s been that way for at least 20 years. I know, it’s one of the brands I used to rep when [...]

The holidays are upon us and yesterday my husband and I stopped for a quick lunch at Subway®. Trying to watch my food intake this holiday season I decided to go for the “healthy” menu. But what exactly does that mean? I ordered just a six inch vegetable sandwich with cheese. Even the Biggest Loser® [...]

August 2010 – It’s summer time and I must share, I LOVE ice cream. But did you ever wonder what kind of an ice cream lover you may be? I mean there are two kinds of ice cream lovers, those who love stuff in their ice cream and those who are purist. I have always [...]

Ice Cream

Published by CPGgal under Food

July 2010 – The most recent change I noticed is Haagen Dazs® ice cream.  What used to be a pint (16oz) has now been downsized to 14oz.  This is both a good and bad thing.  Good because know if you eat the whole pint in one sitting you are actually consuming ½ a serving less [...]

Seattle’s Best

Published by CPGgal under Food,QSR's,Restaurants

June, 2010 – I just returned from a business trip to Seattle.  I shouldn’t have been surprised that there was a Starbucks on more than every corner, but what did surprise me is that my co-workers weren’t aware that Starbucks also owns the brand Seattle’s Best.  How many others are fooled by the brand?  When [...]
