GLUTEN FREE MOCHA BROWNIES
I have been being very careful of what I eat lately. I am driven to loose the pounds that have crept on since I have stopped working full-time. Sitting behind a computer all day has taken its toll. That being said, I still crave the sweet stuff.
I have recently started a relationship with Abe’s Market as one of my affiliates and fortuitously they sent me a recipe for delicious Gluten Free Mocha Brownies. Score! Now I can have my brownies and eat them too!
I am pretty excited about the affiliate relationship with Abe’s Market too. The variety of natural and organic products they have is fairly large with many of the items I already purchase and they are offering free shipping right now on orders over $29.00.
One of my favorite opportunities offered at Abe’s Market is their Tastemaker program . “What is a Tastemaker?” I am glad you asked!
WHAT IS A TASTEMAKER?
Each day Abe’s Market opens up cases so you get to try before you buy, so to speak. Buying a case is the best deal around, but who wants to take a chance on a product you may not care for. The price for each individual product is substantially lower than normal so the brand partners with Abe’s get to hear your feedback allowing them to improve and grow.
There are multiple products you can choose from and you have the opportunity to choose 3 different products each day. The cost is only $2.00 with shipping included! Now that is what I call pretty amazing. It makes trying natural and organic downright simple.
Lastly, you get the opportunity to be an influencer and give brands your feedback. Simply answer one question before making your purchase and then share a few details with the brand after receiving it in the mail. Easy peasy!
Today’s Tastemaker choices included Chocolate Cherry Jr. Organic Granola Bars (2 pack), Honey Almond Quinoa Cereal, Larabar – Fruit & Nut Bar – Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip – (2 pack) just to name a few. Every day you can pick something new.
Tomorrow at 11:00 AM I will officially become an Abe’s Market Tastemaker! What about you..would you like to join me?
