In no particular order:
Kween Granola Butter
Booth # 5613
It’s basically magic in a jar. Totally allergen friendly (Top 14 free), nut free, dairy free, refined sugar free, no preservatives or artificial anything. It’s vegan and made with organic ingredients, too. Think of a nut butter consistency… you will want to spread or drizzle it on everything or just eat it with a spoon. They can be stored in the fridge for more of a “cookie dough” texture. They have 3 flavors original, chocolate and vanilla and we love them all.
Honestly this is a product you didn’t know you needed until now. It will be LOVE at first spoonful. A must have!

Hands down, this is the very best veggie burger in the whole wide world. I really don’t have to say much more… Hilary’s makes the most amazing plant based veggie burgers, veggie and whole grain medleys, veggie bites and veggie sausages. Everything is organic, vegan and plant based, as well as free from the top 12 most common food allergens. I love this brand and the lovely people at Hilary’s!

I found this brand a few years back thanks to my friend Christine. They are a 100% plant-based functional wellness brand with tasty protein drinks using Superfoods, Ayurvedics, Botanical Herbs and Probiotics with functional benefits that go well beyond hydration and general nutrition. Everything is certified USDA organic, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free. Their new line of Keto Friendly drinks are launching soon, and I’m very excited about it. Less than 1g of sugar, probiotics for digestive health, nutrient dense and protein packed!
I’m so stoked to try their new Keto line. I love each of their other drinks already, so I can’t wait to stop by and sample the new line!

Booth # 5598
Crunchsters are nonGMO, gluten free, nut free, vegan snacks made from sprouted mung beans. They are made with simple ingredients and come in a variety of flavors. Great to sprinkle on salads, avocado toast, soup or even to eat as a snack. What is a mung bean? It’s a little green bean that is consumed primarily in Southeast Asia, India, and China. In America we know them as bean sprouts. They sprout them a little differently and cook them up for a delicious snack!
I definitely can’t wait to try all of the Crunchsters flavors. I already want to sprinkle them on everything. Looking forward to meeting their team.

This is the world’s tastiest 100% Blood Orange Juice. It’s funny because I don’t usually drink much juice, but I do love using this incredible juice for salad dressings or to add a splash to my water for some fruit flavored water. Try adding it to sparkling water for a mocktail experience or using it in various recipes. They also have a 100% Blood Orange & Pomegranate Juice as well as a 100% Mandarin Orange Juice. Mongibello is 100% Blood Orange Juice that's imported from Sicily. The blood oranges are grown at the base of Mt. Etna, a volcano in Sicily, and the ground is ideal for blood orange production. The only ingredient is blood orange juice and no added sugar.
I love stopping by the Mongibello Booth for a sip of the tastiest juice ever, ever! Love this brand and this juice.

I’ve know about this allergy friendly brand for a long time and love their Sun Cups! Their products are free from top 14 common allergens and their newest products are out of this world. They have Bagel Chips that come in 2 flavors: Plain and Everything. Both are fantastic with dips, crumbled on soup or on charcuterie boards. I haven’t had a bagel chip in years. Thankful for a safe option!
My husband and I will down a bag of the Bagel Chips in 0.32 seconds! Excited to see the team at Expo and eat some gluten free Bagel Chips.
