I received some products from Food Should Taste Good and Larabar. Opinions expressed are my own.
Just the other day, the UPS man showed up with several packages for me. I don’t mean for me, I mean for me to wrap, for everyone else. It looked like the pile shown above! I ordered the majority of my Christmas gifts on Amazon.com. We love Amazon.com and that one fee of $79 a year for Amazon Prime? Well worth it. All of my packages arrived on time for Christmas.
But I digress, the point is, I was surprised with one package that I was not expecting. It was….it was…..a gift for me from one of my favorite chip makers – Food Should Taste Good. They partnered with Larabar and gave me this generous gift of Food Should Taste Good Chips, several Larabars to sample and a nice cheese cutting board and utensils. Also included are some interesting recipes from Food Should Taste Good and Larabar. Here is the gift that I received.
In past reviews, I’ve indicated that the Food Should Taste Good Multi-Grain chips are my favorite flavor. The Blue Corn Tortilla Chips are great too. The Chocolate Tortilla Chips have a slightly sweet chocolatey flavor that would pair very well with the following sweet dip recipe that was included in my gift pack and also on the Food Should Taste Good website.

Crescent Rolls with Goat Cheese, Bacon and Larabar Pecan Pie Bar
Cheese stuffed pastries are always a hit no matter what the crowd or the occasion. The mixture of flavors in the fillings of the crescent rolls strikes the perfect balance between salty, sweet and tangy. If you want to save yourself time and energy, frozen pastry dough works great here.Ingredients– 5 Pecan Pie LÄRABAR bars, chopped– 10 slices bacon, cooked and chopped– 1 small log of Vermont Creamery goat cheese– 14 oz puff pastry doughYieldsAbout 24 crescent rollsDirectionsPreheat oven to 400F. Roll out pastry dough to a 10”x10” square on a lightly floured surface. Cut pastry dough into small triangles, about 2” wide and 3” long. On the short base of each triangle place a small pile of bacon, Vermont Creamery goat cheese and LÄRABAR, then roll the dough into a crescent. Arrange on a greased baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
