Hardbite Potato Chips I absolutely love the story behind these tasty chips. A fourth generation potato farmer finally conquered his quest to make the perfect chip.
This tasty chip has it all - low sodium, non-GMO, gluten free, no cholesterol and trans fat free. Hardbite Potato Chips offer a variety of flavors that are Canadian made and prepared with natural, “feel-good” ingredients such as rock salt and vinegar, jalapeno, smokin’ BBQ, ketchup and sea salt and pepper. For the cottage, BBQ season or at a picnic – you will definitely want to have Hardbite chips on hand!
Paderno Spiralizer Whenever I make a spiralizer recipe on Cityline – I am always flooded with “where did you buy that” e-mails! A spiraIizer is the perfect way to enjoy “pasta like” noodles from vegetables such as zucchini, carrots or sweet potatoes without the wheat. Eaten raw or cooked, simply spiralize and add your favorite sauce (tomato, rose or pesto) and enjoy! Versatile, easy to use and clean – it is the perfect addition to your kitchen gadgets.

FOOD OF THE MONTH: RHUBARB
Rhubarb is finally is season! Traditionally, rhubarb is used in pies, crisps and muffins, and known for its tart and bitter taste.
Rhubarb is a good source of health benefiting nutrients, including fiber, antioxidants, vitamin C, and vitamin K. Rhubarb can be found in a few different colors (red, pink and green) – but remember... the redder the stalk, the more tart it will be.
The skin of the rhubarb contains a lot of the color and flavor, so avoid peeling the skin as you chop up the stalks.
