Happy Presidents Day

Happy Presidents Day everyone! Hopefully, you have the day off so you can relax and read our blog post of course! This Everyday Health article inspired me to put together a list of Presidential worthy gluten free treats that align with each of their favorite snacks. George Washington History has George Washington pegged as a fan of cherry pie, so obviously this gluten free cherry pie recipe would be perfect for him. However, the Everyday Health article lists Hazelnuts as George Washington's snack of choice. If you ask me, it seems our very own Hazelnut Chocolate Cherry Truebar would be a win win for our nations first leader! Thomas Jefferson Apparently Thomas Jefferson had a fascination with vanilla ice cream and would even make his own recipe for his guests. Although homemade is great, we are certain, TJ would fall head over heels for the vanilla maple ice cream from our friends at Arctic Zero. We did! William Howard Taft

President Taft was our 27th President as well as our 10th Chief Justice of the United States. He was the only person in our history to serve in both those offices. President Taft was also quite fond of almonds, that's right good 'ole almonds. Nothing wrong with eating them just the way they are, unless you are carrying them around in your pocket; the way President Taft was said to. Try our Hazelnut Chocolate Almond or Apricot Almond Chai Truebar, less moving parts and you're sure not to miss them in your pocket while doing the wash! Franklin D. Roosevelt FDR with much surprise favored the fruit cake! I know, it would never be my snack of choice but as Everyday Health put it, FDR was very modest man with classic taste. Good for him, and I respect it! So here you are Franklin, a gluten free fruit cake recipe in your honor! However, if you are every craving a cake with a little more, shall we say chocolate? ;-) Check out my colleague Whitneys recipe for a Truebar inspired Raspberry Chocolate Almond Cake! Ronald Reagan Jelly Beans were the sugary snack Ronald Reagan would eat whenever he had the chance. In fact for his 1981 inauguration, there were three and a half tons of jelly beans shipped to the White House! Additionally, during President Reagans tenure, Jelly Belly Beans were served in the Oval Office and Airforce One, in fact a special holder was designed for the planes so the jelly beans would not spill during turbulence. If you visit the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California you can see a portrait of President Reagan made up of 10,000 Jelly Belly Beans! The best part about these colorful and sweet snacks? They are gluten free, peanut free, dairy free, fat free and vegetarian friendly as well as certified Kosher! Jelly Beans were good enough for Ronald Reagan and they are good enough for me! Enjoy the rest of your President's Day! For better living, -Bill
