New Year’s Eve Free Printable Conversation Starters

New Year's Eve Conversation Starters -

New Year's Conversation Starters - is almost here! Every year my husband’s family takes a trip up north for Christmas. We rent a cabin and enjoy food, games, movies and each other. This year we will be there on New Year’s Eve. So I started brainstorming, what could we do to celebrate that will not be too much fuss? After all, I simply do not have more room to bring more “stuff” after all the gifts, swim toys, food, etc. And I wanted to be practical. There are some seriously adorable things on Pinterest for New Year’s Eve, but this working Mama just doesn’t have time for all that and my money is spent for the rest of the year! So was born the “New Year’s Eve Conversation Starters”.

Introducing Gluten Free Bakery at Coborn's!

Introducing Gluten Free Bakery at Coborn's!

There is something new coming to your local Coborn’s and we can’t contain the news any longer! We are excited to announce the opening of our Gluten Free Baking Facility! Located in the heart of Minnesota (St. Cloud), this facility is in a completely separate building from our conventional bakery to ensure there is no cross contact with gluten containing ingredients.

Gluten Free Cookes & Cupcakes - www.cobornsblog.comWith the growing demand for gluten free products and the majority of the current products available sold frozen, it seemed right to us to start a Gluten Free Bakery focused on offering primarily fresh baked goods. Our expert bakers work diligently to create products that are not only gluten free, but taste delicious! The selection of items is sure to please from morning until night. To start the day, there are sugared cake donuts and decadent muffins…with the Double Chocolate Chip being one of my personal favorites! Other muffin flavors include Chocolate Chip, Banana, Blueberry and Cranberry Orange – all melt in your mouth delicious! Lunch/Dinner time brings choices such as hotdog and hamburger buns, or a great slice of bread for a sandwich. Finish off with a tasty cupcake, bar, or cookie. Cupcakes come in both White and Devil’s Food, while the bars include Fudge Brownie and Chocolate Chip flavors. There is also a delightful selection of cookies – Sugar, Raspberry, Chocolate Chip, and Double Chocolate Chip – in two sizes!! Last, but certainly not least, are the frosted cakes available in delectable White and Devil’s Food. The flavors of these items will entice everyone – even those that do not need to eat gluten free.

Gluten Free Breads & Buns - www.cobornsblog.comEnsuring the products taste good is one aspect, but we also want to ensure the safety of our guests. Knowing that even the slightest amount of gluten can be detrimental for some, we are taking additional safeguards to ensure our gluten free claim holds true. Only gluten free ingredients are used along with testing all incoming ingredients as well as our finished products to confirm the absence of gluten.

Come give them a try!  You’ll be glad you did! They will be in our stores starting August 16, 2015.
