Buffalo Bill and Onion a Million, the New Additions to Our Kale Family!

Buffalo Bill Kale Chips. Fresh out of the dehydrator!

This week at Rawk-n-Roll Cuisine we were testing recipes for our new flavor, Buffalo Bill! You can look forward to a perfect amount of heat, a creamy, buttery flavor, with just a touch of tang- just like your favorite buffalo wings! "All the high-flying flavor, none of the wings." of course :) I have attached a photo of one of the test batches being brought fresh out of a dehydrator. Man, was it a fun week in the kitchen, helping develop the recipe, taste testing, and of course getting to see the final product.

Ariane also designed the label for Onion a Million. *It is so sweet, it will just rot the teeth out of your skull!  Check it out for yourself!

That's all I have for you today. Be sure to check back soon for more updates, fun photos, and all that jazz!

With Love and Dissent,

*Hopefully not, considering that it is savory without any sugar added :)

Chalk Up Another Reason to Resist Factory Farmed Eggs

Wright County Farm in Iowa, one of the country's largest egg producers has declared a VOLUNTARY recall of 228 million eggs that spanned 13 brand names. The states affected ranged from California, Colorado, and Minnesota.

Some of the brands to look out for are Lucerne, Albertsons, Farm Fresh, Lund, Ralphs, amongst others.

It only makes you wonder to what extent the damage is that this producer would voluntarily pull their products off the shelves as to avoid a PR nightmare (they already have one on their hands now). It honestly gives me the creeps.

The eggs have tainted shells and can potentially cause an epidemic of salmonella due to the cramped, unsanitary conditions of factory farms. The FDA fails to regulate the state of these "farms" that treat the animals more like units of production and in turn subjects the public to fall vulnerable to grave illness.

It is up to us, the community to keep ourselves aware of these situations and not support these atrocious practices not only towards animals, but to our health.

The best way to avoid this and to also in turn support your local economy is to buy directly from farmers who preferably only raise cage-free, free-range, sprout or grass fed livestock. This way, you personally know the source you are buying from, are avoiding the ingestion of harmful hormones and antibiotics, along with supporting the happy, humane life of a sentient living thing.

Please be conscious and spread the word.

With Love,

Kick Off Blog!

Good morning!

Jewell here, from Rawk-n-Roll Cuisine and it is my pleasure to be your host.

We are all very excited here at Rawk-n-Roll to reach out to those who are enthusiasts of our products along with connecting with new individuals within the community.

"What are the nature of your culinary confections?" You may be asking...

Well, to begin, we are a completely raw, vegan, organic snack food line that uses produce that is grown locally in every instance we possibly can obtain it. Our goal is to be "as easy on the wallet as it is on the taste buds." As of right now, we have five different flavors of kale chips! Suiting anyone's pallet.

Our Notchos are our best sellers; packing an addictive punch of savory delight that will have you in love after first bite :)

Barbi Kale is a jerky-like kale chip that is a favorite as it has 0 fat. People snacking on this flavorful morsel can keep their bikini body year round!

Kaletaliano is our pizza flavored crisp. With a delicious tomato base, accented with Italian herbs and a mouth-watering nut cheese, this chip will get you coming back for more every time!

Onion a Million is one of our new flavors that has yet to hit the shelves. We recently held a contest for our fans on to choose the next flavor of kale chip and this was one of the winners! Creamy, with a hint of onion, this beats any potato chip, any day!

Buffalo Bill is the other new flavor here at Rawk-n-Roll, also chosen by a Rawk-n-Roll devotee ;) This kale chip has yet to hit the shelves as we are developing the recipe (pictures to come) but you are sure to be in for a treat with this hot, tangy kale chip! "All the high-flying flavor, none of the wings."

Ok, so now for the treats for those of us who have a sweet tooth!

Super fudge is made with mesquite and maca to make it a decadent treat, without the guilt.

Kanga Crunch is our chocolate flavored granola. Made with raw cacao and agave nectar, this is an amazing treat to have as cereal, or to take on the road.

Monkey Bites is our banana flavored granola. Its a personal favorite of mine :) I love to put it in almond milk, let it get soft, eat it like cereal, and then drink the banana flavored milk after. Yum yum!

What you can look forward to here are; updates on our new flavors (like Buffalo Bill and Onion a Million), pictures, interviews, announcements on tastings, events, and great deals!

Here is the first one!

Visit our Etsy shop and receive a discount from retail price! Only $15 for a 3-pack of granola or kale chips (your choice!) and $55 for a variety case of kale chips (or all the same, if you have a favorite!)

Signing off for now.

With Love and Dissent (for the "man" such as Monsanto and the like)
