By Bob Benenson, FamilyFarmed

It continues to be the most wonderful time of the year for deals, gifts and debuts from businesses in FamilyFarmed’s Good Food Accelerator program. The list starts with some brand new entries — including breaking news from No Denial Foods and The Chicago Kale Chip Co., plus a big savings on Tempo sparkling tea — and follows with ongoing deals first posted last week.

The New Deals

No Denial Foods (2018 GFA graduate)

Posh Nosh has arrived! No Denial Foods, already renowned for its decadent but healthy dessert treats, has taken it up a nosh. Posh Nosh has three delicious new flavors and beautiful packaging — making its three-pack boxes (purchased online) perfect for gifts, secret Santa parties, and other holiday gatherings. Now “decadent” and “healthy” are rarely synonymous, but owner Debbie Wood initially developed her grain-free, low-glycemic products because she has diabetes and celiac disease and wanted to fill the dessert void in her own life. Posh Nosh is perfect for people who have those health issues… and perfect for those who don’t.
