Hope you are enjoying the cooler autumn weather. Finally up here in Qld it has cooled down a little and it's so fresh in the cooler air, very invigorating

This month we have some Enjoy Life specials, the results from our survey and a new service we are offering to help make ordering easier for you, so without further ado ....

Survey results

Thank you to the many of you who responded to our survey, the response was overwhelming and it was fantastic to get a chance to see what you all would like to see and how you make your buying decisions.

Here is a quick snapshot of the results :

95% of you are looking for specific allergy free foods, 32% also want organic, 68% are looking for allergy friendly & additive free specialty foods.

It was Very Important that our products have allergy friendly ingredients (that's not a surprise!), having Organic ingredients turned out to be right in the middle, it was Somewhat Important to have no artificial additives, and having a dedicated allergen free production facility was also Somewhat Important. Price was neutral, however you all commented that when you are so restricted with what you can eat, price is not the most important factor but life would be so much nicer if these allergy friendly foods were priced more in line with conventional foods.

When we asked if you would buy allergy friendly products that contained additives, 32% of you would (with the proviso that you would prefer there were not any) and 26% of you would be very unlikely to purchase these foods if there were additives in them.

72% of you said you would definitely or probably pay more for allergy friendly items which were also organic.

Your wishlist!
Top of the list was allergy friendly lollies! (Stay tuned on this one, if you had this on your wish list, let me just say you should be very happy with us next month!!)
A close second was savoury snacks and school lunch box snacks.
Others that were high up the list were breakfast foods, corn free foods (most of our foods are corn free, you can contact me if you would like to check any individual item), bread, chips, choc bars (check our Boom Choco Boom bars, they are a true allergy friendly chocolate treat). As well, seasonal items like advent calendars and Easter Eggs.

Thanks again for your time in letting us know what you would like. This helps us to evaluate new suppliers and bring you what it is you want the most. I will be seeing my suppliers in the US next month and will be taking along the results to share so they can consider new product offerings for our market as well.

A new service for youallergy friendly foods logo


Do you know how many calls I get from mums who have just opened their last tin of DariFree and need some more TODAY, or have gone to pack the school lunch box and find there are no Enjoy Life snack bars left in the cupboard?

Well we would like to take the stress off you a little and offer you an auto ordering option.

How does it work?
If you would like to take advantage of this service, there is no cost and absolutely no obligation. I will simply look at your order history and then a week before I think you would need to order I will send you a text message or email reminding you that you might need some more. You can either tell me to send your normal order using details on file, tell me that you don't need anything right now or tell me that you might order some different products so you will go online and do it one day soon.

That's it. I will never ship anything automatically and you are not obliged to have a minimum time period in which you reorder. It's simply a way to try and alleviate the last minute panic when you need a specialty food that takes a few days to get to you.

If you would like to try this system, just email me by clicking here

New cookies

Available now, the new favourites in our house the No-Oats Oatmeal cookies. Soft-baked cookies made with loads of crispy brown rice flakes and plump dark raisins. A perennial favorite of kids and adults alike. Check the shopping trolley
for all details

Lively Lemon cookies
were $11.50, now $8.50
valid til 30.6.10

I over-ordered these ones! They are a fabulous cookie, maybe one for the mums with a cup of tea - tangy, soft baked cookies with bits of lemony zing and a bold, refreshing citrus flavor.

Hot Chocolate

down, a hot chocolate is definitely on the menu!

DariFree Hot Chocolate

4 cups water
1/2 cup DariFree original powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp vanilla
In medium saucepan, heat the water.
Stir in remaining ingredients and heat until just boiling.
Serve with marshmallows if desired.
4 servings

For a very quick & easy version, my kids pour DariFree chocolate into a mug and heat in the microwave. Not as rich as above, but the kids love it and they can do it themselves!

We were written up in a Blog just recently and got really favourable review which I wanted to share with you :


At Creation Cottage we recently had the opportunity to roadtest a number of Allergy Free Gluten Free products!

We are very excited to bring you the results here!

If you're on a Gluten Free diet you will know how difficult it is to find products that tastes desirable!

For the most part, Gluten Free has meant eating cardboard-like products!


Call them what you will ... plain depressing would be a good way to describe eating Gluten Free/Allergy Free UNTIL NOW...


Allergy Friendly Foods were one of my clear favourites! After trialling their products, and in particular their cookies I feel like I have my life back!

I am absolutely addicted to these products! They are a must-have in my pantry! This is a company dedicated to supplying you with the absolute best in gluten and allergy free items. I was impressed with taste, quality, packaging! The lot!

Oh and the customer service when dealing direct was second to none, thanks Kris!
But do check out the website for their many stockists there's sure to be one near you!

Remember - if you have a testimonial - words and/or pictures - and you are happy for us to use it on our website and facebook profiles, we will send you a free product of your choice to say thank you. No strings attached, any product of your choice is yours in return. As a small business we are not able to do a lot of advertising so your referrals and testimonials are our greatest advertisement and we appreciate them very much.
