Lazy Gluten Free: Chicago GFAF Expo 2014 in Review

Chicago GFAF Expo 2014 in Review



I had every intention of posting this the week after the expo, however, I came back to busy season in full-swing at work and time managed to get away from me. I apologize for the delay, but hey, better late than never right?

You may remember me posting about attending the Gluten Free and Allergy Free Expo in Chicago as a part of the Official Blogger Team a few weeks back. I have to say, what a weekend! 

First of all, the absolute coolest thing was being at an event that I could eat pretty much everything. It was a celiac's dream to be at this expo (and for those with other allergies too). I had the opportunity to try so many new and exciting products, several of which I will be able to review (and possibly giveaway) for you!

A few brands I fell in love with:

Sweet Ali's Bakery - hands down best GF cupcakes and cinnamon rolls ever.

New Planet Beer - I am not a beer drinker at all, however, NP had a very tasty raspberry ale!

Leo's Gluten Free Pasta - their gnocci was so good!

Cheesewhich - literally a piece of lunch meat between two slices of cheese. Beyond amazing.

Additionally, I got to meet a lot of really awesome people both from brands/products I love and my fellow bloggers. 

Me and Jennifer, The Allergista

Me and Andrea from Red Apple Lipstick (I had SO much fun at their booth!)

Me and Kayla from The Eclectic Element

Me and Danielle from Grab the Gold (a really yummy protein bar!)

All in all, it was an amazing weekend. Even my husband had a great time. If I am not part of the blogger team again, I will definitely attend the expo next year. It's a wonderful opportunity to see what allergy-friendly products are out there and have the ability to sample them before you buy. Getting samples is probably one of the best parts, I came home with so much food!


I had a such blast and I can't wait to do it all again! :)
