This week on Go Dairy Free and One Frugal Foodie we are giving away a sampler package of Organic Cookies from HomeFree Treats. Formerly known as Gak's Snacks, HomeFree produces cookies and coffee cakes that are made from organic ingredients in a facility that is certified vegan and dedicated nut-free, peanut-free, dairy-free, and egg-free. But most importantly, their sweets taste awesome (trust me, several of us at Go Dairy Free have tried and loved every flavor; just ask Sarah and Sarena)! No one will feel "left out" when they bite into one of HomeFree's big, soft cookies or reach for a handful of their cookie minis. Okay, I'm getting hungry, let's get back to the giveaway …
