Brazi Bites

Nearly two years ago I was contacted by a lovely company, Brazi Bites, to review their traditional Brazilian cheese bread snacks. I responded with a resounding YES because who wouldn't love to try gluten-free cheese bread snacks?! I tried them and was hooked. Once I finished the samples I was bound and determined to find out where I could get more. At the time, however, they were really only located in the PNW (Pacific Northwest) and I was in New England. Thus began my love affair with Brazi Bites.

About a month ago Evan and I were in Syracuse perusing the aisles of Wegman's as I love to do, and I was astonished to see Brazi Bites in the freezer section! I bought several (aka quite a few) bags and proceeded to eat them ALL. As we are now blessed with a Wegman's in Massachusetts I hurried home to see if I could find them there and I am happy to report that I DID. To find in a store near you, click here. Shortly after,  I was again contacted by Brazi Bites to write a little bit more on their delicious product and I was obviously happy to oblige. I was also delighted to find out that they now have a new Garlic Asiago flavor!

All of Brazi Bites flavors, Jalepeno (my favorite), bacon, original, and garlic asiago can be eaten by themselves as a snack or in combination with a meal. This time around I sought to pair them with different meals. The bacon flavor was incredible with breakfast and brunch. The garlic asiago went really well with Italian dinners and was basically a gluten-free replacement for garlic bread! The original flavor went really well with a ham dinner (who doesn't love ham and cheese anything?). The jalepeno flavor is hands down my favorite for snacking or eating with anything. They even make great little sliders for pulled pork or breakfast sandwiches!

I was also thrilled to hear about Brazi Bites in a different context - on the TV show Shark Tank! The founders Cameron and Junea made it through to pitch Brazi Bites to the Shark Tank investors. To watch the episode and find out what happens click here: Brazi Bites on Shark Tank!

Please note, I did receive this product complementary from Brazi Bites but, as always, the opinions are entirely my own. Photo credit: Brazi Bites.
