- June 24/25 – Glendale, AZ
- July 22/23 – Worcester, MA
- October 14/15 – Secaucus, NJ

Enjoy Life, one of my favorite allergy-friendly brands, even revealed their cute Enjoy Life Land setup, which is complete with a Cookie Canyon, Chocolate River and Free-From Forest. You can see the back of my head within the first minute of this video. 😛
Best part of the day? Free samples! Some of my everyday allergy-friendly staples were there: Enjoy Life, Daiya, So Delicious. But I also was able to try a few new brands that I ended up loving: Homefree, BFree, Milton’s. Below are a few of my finds.
These cards were at every booth and were super helpful for those of us avoiding multiple allergens, as many GF products still contain dairy, egg, soy, peanut or treenut.
