I found this 10 oz package of Ricemellow Creme by Suzanne’s Specialties at my grocery store, for just under 5 bucks. Outrageous compared to regular fluff I know, but it contains only brown rice syrup, soy protein, natural gums and natural flavors.
The only sweetener is the brown rice syrup, there’s no corn syrup, no cane sweeteners, no refined sugars. There’s also no gluten, no animal products (it’s vegan), no fat, cholesterol, added salt, preservatives or artificial additives.
Despite the lack of preservatives, the jar is good until August.
To be honest, with all that, I didn’t have high hopes for it’s taste!
A two tablespoon serving has about the same nutrition facts as it’s corn syrup-y cousin.
I cautiously gave it a sniff. Hmm…smells pretty good. Sweet. *sniff* Almost like a melted marshmallow. Reminds me of something I can’t put my finger on.
I put a teeny bit on a spoon and gave it a taste. It was pretty good! Sweet, a bit like fluff, but much lighter and airier. I had hubby taste it, and my daughter too. Both liked it.
They both thought it had a consistency more like whipped cream than fluff. My daughter said “It’s TOO YUMMY.” She also hugged it to herself and said “It’s mine and I’m going to eat it ALL UP because I love it SO MUCH.” She also told me she liked it better than regular fluff, but later told me she wasn’t sure.
I made a ricemellow creme fluffernutter. (It’s a little messy since I didn’t use a clean knife to cut it)
>I’m a terrible photographer, even with a little knowledge and an expensive (borrowed) camera. Still, I thought these apples and plums baking were worthy of a quick shot with my point-and-shoot.
I know I started this blog to write about cloth diapers, but I think I’ve veered off that path enough already to write about homemade baby food sometime.
So stay tuned kiddies!
