Season three of House of Cards is now available on Netflix* I’ve been passing my evening hours binge watching a few shows. Of course, this binge watching has temporarily eliminated my dining out (this is the most recent excuse for why I have not posted anything in months). Along with all this television watching, one also needs snacks.
Let’s talk allergy safe, binge-watching-worthy snacks for my top three Netflix series that I’ve watched lately.
Snack #1 the House of Cards Snack: What can I say about House of Cards – just the BEST political drama. Season 1 was just crazy (in a good way). Season 3 continues with more drama. These people are ambitious and ruthless in their pursuit of power. What kind of snack (besides alcohol) could possible go with House of Cards? My choice? Freeyumm Chocolate Brownie Bites ($7.49). These little chocolate brownie snacks are free of the top nine allergens – eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat sulphites, seafood, soy, sesame. Taste wise, they are pretty good. Granted I have no idea what “real” brownies taste like, but I like the Freeyumm ones because they have a great texture. They taste very chocolately and are very moist. Pretty good for a tiny brownie that has no dairy or eggs. The brownies themselves are literally bite sized. Quite a small snack. The products are naturally sweetened with agave. Although this is a great natural sweetener, I do find them a bit too sweet for my liking. Perhaps they are more geared towards kids. Chocolate Brownie Bites go well with a nice cup of tea and an episode of House of Cards because while watching HOC, you need something sweet to balance out all the awful things that Claire and Frank orchestrate in their ambition to rule the world. I can’t wait for Season 4! Continue reading
