Editor’s Correction:The pricing of one box of HomeFree cookies on the website is $5.49. I misquoted the price as $5.79. The retail price of the cookies in most stores is $4.99. My apologies! Thank you ~ Theresa

HomeFree Snacks are an all natural alternative to the snacks that are currently available at the local grocery store. HomeFree Snacks were specially created for kids with allergies to nuts, eggs and dairy. I wasn’t sure what to expect when we tried the HomeFree Snacks, not having tasted many dairy free, egg free, or nut free products. However, I was certainly intrigued and knew that many of you probably know or have someone in your family who could benefit from knowing about these healthy snacks.
Our whole family gobbled up most of the two packages of HomeFree Snacks that we received to review. We saved a few for the little ones for an outing tomorrow. The snacks we tried were their Soft Oatmeal Cookies and their Mini Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies. Yummy, yummy, yummy! We loved them. Surprisingly, the oatmeal cookies tasted like oatmeal cookies. 🙂 The chocolate chocolate chip cookies were mini cookies and we all thought they tasted like the brand name chocolate Teddy Grahams. Seriously, but without the chemicals and preservatives. I just wish they sold larger portions at a discounted price to make it worth our family’s while to purchase in bulk.
Love, love, love it when all the ingredients on a package says organic. Take a look…

As with most healthy foods and treats, HomeFree Snacks are not cheap by any means, a box of cookies sells for $5.79.
HomeFree Snacks is a company all about providing treats you can trust. The founder of HomeFree, Jill Robbins, is a mom and clinical psychologist. She realized how important it is for kids with allergies to have healthy snacks that were comparable to what their peers are enjoying. Often social events are difficult for children with allergies because they get left out of the snacky foods and this is the void that Jill Robbins desired to fill. She hopes you will enjoy seeing the smiles on your child’s face as they munch on her fabulous healthy treats.
HomeFree is also a charitable company, as they donate a portion of their profits to organizations that provide food allergy research and education. Be sure to learn more about them by visiting www.HomeFreeTreats.com
