News & Notes: October 9, 2015

The newest all-gluten-free restaurant in the Delaware Valley is hoping to debut later this fall. Heart Beet Kitchen in Westmont (29 Haddon Ave., 856-240-1106) will offer a plant-based, organic menu full of healthy fare, smoothies, soups and desserts. For now, Heart Beet brings some of its wares to the Westmont Farmers' Market every Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Stir-fry and salad purveyor Honeygrow has opened its first Delaware location in Wilmington (5609A Concord Pike, 302-407-3331). Another, on Main Street in Newark, is planned for later this fall.

Burning Brothers Brewing, an all-gluten-free brewery out of Minnesota, has plans to bring its Pyro American Pale Ale to Philadelphia, though given Pennsylvania's Byzantine liquor laws there's no ETA just yet.

Still on the subject of beers, Tuesday's post featured a review of the award-winning beers from Seattle's Ghostfish Brewing.

General Mills issued a product recall of certain Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios boxes due to the presence of undisclosed gluten. Affected boxes were produced at the company's Lodi, California facility in July. If you have these cereals, compare the "Better If Used By" code on the packaging to those identified by General Mills.

Kettle Kups K-Cup Soups are new, all-natural, Keurig brewer compatible soups. All varieties - Homestyle Chicken, Homestyle Beef and Garden Vegetable - are gluten free.

ShopRite in Marlton (307 Rt. 70 W., 856-983-7370) is hosting a Gluten-Free Food Festival next Saturday, October 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be lots of samples being offered, and I'll be hanging out there from 11 a.m. to noon. Some of the more than three dozen vendors participating include Boar's Head, Crunch Master, Sweet Megan's Bakery, Sweet Note Bakery, Evol, Udi's, Glutino, Lance, Late July, Perdue and Pretzel Crisps.

Have a great weekend!
