I was completely blown away at how tasty these Oh Nuts were.
You know why?
Because when they said it was "raw" I said no way. And gave it a go anyways.

These have really unique, tasty, all natural flavorings.

  1. Oh, sweet bliss - cake batter ice cream with chocolate cake swirls? I'd move states for a small sample.

    Happy August, Dawn! Thank you for acknowledging that there's still plenty of summer left. : )

  2. cake batter ice cream with chocolate cake chunk swirls = YES!
    Love all the links - interesting fun blend of some raw links/products. Always great when raw tastes as good (or better than!) the alternatives.

    And Deb's cake, Meagan's pie, Jackies caprese stacks - thanks for the delish reminders and for all the new links in this post! Love them!

  3. oh that ice cream- this further increases my need to find a good ice cream place in Phoenix! Alright, twist my arm that almond milk coffee from whole foods is perfectly necessary now!

  4. I am astounded and saddened by the irony of a link list that contains both unproven diet advice and instruction not to fat shame. :(

    1. Did you complain to the person that wrote the article you are upset over?
      Might be a good idea!

  5. Thanks for the link love, girl! Those peanut butter & jelly parfaits are all up in my DREAMS! Happy weekend!!

  6. Wow, I always enjoy your Friday links but these are exceptional! Thank you!

  7. I am loving that ice cream cone - making me swoon!

    We are swimming in tomatoes.. so we have lots of sauces and dicing/stewing to freeze for winter. Nothing better than making your summer harvest last until Spring!

  8. Your links are so great! Love the birthday site. All my tomatoes are going in guacamole and a family favorite vinegar salad.


I love your comments!
