In the Garden of Eatin’, no one cares about the apples because it’s all about the chips. Made with organic yellow corn, expeller pressed oils (canola, safflower or sunflower) and a touch of sea salt, Garden of Eatin’ Yellow Corn Tortilla Chips are simply delicious. With a big yellow corn flavor, these classic chips (what they look like on the bag is exactly what they look like in the bag) can be enjoyed au naturale, in nachos, or with salsa and guacamole…or, all of the above!

Chocolate Pecan Bars are rich, moist, crunchy dark chocolate nutty bars that will remind you of a chocolate pecan pie (without the corn syrup) although my daughter says these gooey treats taste like cookie/candy bars. In fact, these bars were born of a “disastrous” mistake made when I added too many pecans to a chocolate pecan pie recipe with the idea that more is better. Read more
