Calling all foodies! Looking to update your pantry? What about snacks to satiate the appetite but not throw off those gains? Or beverages to keep those cozy vibes? And of course can’t forget desserts for that sweat treat your mental space really needs. We’ve got some fun food finds for you to try this fall.
Old Trapper Jerky
Made with the highest of quality meats, a little goes a long way with Old Trapper Jerky. Each piece is perfect for a healthy snack or a quick protein bite on the go. We tried their Old Fashioned Beef Jerky and it was pinnacle of perfect jerky. Chewy texture, not too dry with mouth-watering flavour. I was surprised how long it kept me going after missing a meal in between running about the city. The price is worth the premium if you want the best jerky. Keep some of these around at all times and you’ll thank yourself later.
You wouldn’t traditionally think of fish as a snack but Pescavore is here to change your mind. Wild caught, USA made, premium delicious Ahi Tuna is now available at your fingertips with an amazing 14 to 15 grams of protein.
Their tuna flavor sticks make a perfect bite on the go and are available in three flavours: Island Teriyaki, Smokey Poke, and Caribbean. The texture is super meaty and surprisingly filling. Each serving also holds 189 mg of Omega-3. These are a perfect snack for those who need that extra protein boost or even for introducing kids to different flavours.
Numi – Turmeric Chai Golden Latte
The fall is for lattes. Well, lattes are something I drink all year round. But especially during the colder months, you’ll want something to bring the froth and help boost your immune system. I’m a huge fan of Numi teas already, but this fall I’m going to have a new favorite with their Tumeric Chai Golden Latte. It contains cinnamon and cardamom and is absolutely delicious.
This version is a little different than your typical loose leaf or bagged tea. Since it’s a loose powder just add a teaspoon of powdered beverage into your cup and 8 ounces of hot water or milk. My personal favorite version of this is using hot almond milk and a bit of honey as a nightcap.
Modica – Cacao Espresso Martini
I’ve recently become obsessed with espresso martinis after being introduced to it by a friend. I never was a coffee flavour fan, but this year, something different hit. Modica takes my recent drink obsession and steps it up a couple notches. The Cacao Espresso Martini is the perfect mix for those who want a quick indulgent Martini without the hassle of making the espresso.
The cacao also adds a ridiculously rich layer to the taste profile and a pronounced chocolate vibe. I tried it both with Vodka and as a mocktail, mixing it with almond milk. Both were amazing and I love that I can also treat myself on my “off-alcohol” days.
The measurements suggested are equal parts vodka and espresso martini mix. However, I prefer things a little less sweet ( the one drop of orange juice for a mimosa type). If you also prefer less sweet alternatives I would highly suggest adding one part milk of choice. I added almond milk last second and it was absolutely delicious.
I don’t expect this bottle to make it through the winter. If you are an espresso martini fan like me, maybe grab yourself two just in case.
Seven Sisters Scones
This list wouldn’t be complete without a sweet. Having scones delivered to your door sounds like something straight out of a fairytale. But it’s no lie. Seven Sisters Scones has such a wide range of incredibly scrumptious scones that can be delivered straight to your door. It’s easy to get click happy scrolling through their offerings of regular, mini-sized, gluten free and vegan scones.
Easy to store, the scones can be frozen or refrigerated for a few days. But I highly doubt they would last that long. You can reheat them in the oven, but I prefer to microwave them to get my hands on those buttery baked goods as fast as possible.
I can’t even begin to say my favorite. I definitely let out a happy irrepressible squeal when I opened my scone box. I will say my first pick was the mini Starburst because of its sweetly pink color and candy inspiration. If you need to heal an inner child – pick these scones or even the mounds inspired scone to relive those childhood Halloween moments.
I also think these would make a perfect addition for any family gathering, house warming, gift, or get together. I for one am ecstatic that amazing, buttery, soft, indulgent, perfect scones can get sent to my door. Have you ever tried to make scones? I have. It’s hard to get perfect. Now I don’t have to. These will be here for me on those cold winter mornings with a cup of coffee and some good company.
