Just a heads up that the new September Sales and Special Offers have gone up for Amazon Grocery, and finally it looks like a good bunch of natural food offerings. Granted, the discounts aren't as big as last year (I lament), but still a bargain in many cases. I plan to buy from among the deals this month. Here are just a few that have an abundance of dairy-free offerings (I've included my own personal notes, just in case you want to know a little more):
YummyEarth Organic Candy (Great discount, perfect for special lunchbox treat, classrooms, and upcoming holiday events since they are also made in an allergen-safe facility (including nut-free), according to the company.)
Coombs Maple Syrup (This is the brand I always buy and always from Amazon. I get he grade B organic version – more flavor, better quality, best price when on sale, like now!)
Natural Food Cereals, Granolas and Bars from Annie's Homegrown, Nature's Path, Envirokidz, Erin Baker's (including those breakfast cookies!), Erewhon, and New Morning (I'm a big fan of Erewhon's crispy cereals for cooking, baking, and no-baking. We used to buy Nature's Path cereal quite a bit; most varieties are great, but we now make our own cereal and granola at home. I haven't sampled the other brands, but have heard good things about all from readers.)
Mary's Gone Crackers Cookies and Crackers (This is a very virtuous brand in terms of ingredients, which are dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan. You would be hard-pressed to find a more wholesome item in a box. I haven't tried this brand, but am dying to)
Sahale Snacks (Oh. My. Goodness. These snacks are unreal. My husband and I quickly devour them. Some have more grown-up flavors, but the simpler ones are definitely kid-friendly. An awesome treat and quite fillilng for a snack – they are nut-based though.)
Food Should Taste Good Chips (Whenever I spot these on sale at my local grocer (with a coupon they often come out to the amazing price of $1 to $1.50 a bag) I pick a couple bags up. They taste amazing, come in a ton of flavors (my favorite being the Sweet Potato and Olive varieties) and are relatively virtous. The Amazon price after discounts is about $1.50 for a full 6-oz bag, so a good stock up price)
There are many more discounts, dozens in fact. You can see them all here in the September Sales and Special Offers section. Don't forget to use the Subscribe and Save for an extra discount and free, fast shipping. It can be cancelled at any time and works like a charm.
