Get Ready for the San Diego GF Expo 2015
I went to the first GF Expo in San Diego in 2011. It was a great experience and I found tons of new products and some restaurants in San Diego that offered safe GF food - Casa de Bandini and Mountain Mikes pizza.
Unfortunately 2012 was a bust and the expo did not make it back. The last two years were at the Del Mar fairgrounds and things were in full swing.
This will be the first time that the GFAFexpo will be in San Diego. They began in 2007 and have grown and have expos in seven cities throughout the US.
Each year I find at least a few new products and I get to head home with a full belly (thanks to all of the free samples from the booth vendors) and usually a shopping bag for of GF goodies.
Keils had a great booth one year and we found out how many GF options they carry. Although it is a bit far we head down there for some GF products we can't find at other stores in San Diego.
My son loves Mediterranean Snack Foods garlic hummus crackers. Had them for the first time at the Expo.
On February 7, 2015 the GF AF Expo will be in San Diego. It will be held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds from 10-4. Tickets are $20 and parking is $10.
If you would like to buy tickets click on - GFexpo tickets. Enter the code ADVANCE and you will get 15% off your tickets. Wait folks, it gets better (I sound like a late night infomercial) but if you buy your tickets online before 2/6 you will also get a free, yes free, 1 year subscription to Delight Glutenfree magazine. I have not seen their magazine before but looking through their website it looks like they have some good info and recipes.
