Tuesday, January 01, 2013

A Montana firm, WayFare Inc., has launched its newest product, “We Can’t Say It’s Ice Cream,” into the Chattanooga area and is opening a manufacturing plant in Collegedale.

Officials said, "WayFare is now making it possible for everyone to enjoy their favorite frozen desserts with a new line of lactose-free, gluten-free and dairy-free frozen delights."

There are five flavors – chocolate, vanilla crème, blueberry crème, Vermont maple and lemon sunshine.

All five of the flavors contain less fat than traditional ice cream, zero cholesterol, no refined or artificial ingredients, and have a lower glycemic index rating, it was stated.

The new frozen desserts are but one of the many dairy-free products offered by WayFare that also include dairy-free cheddar spreads, sour cream, and puddings.

WayFare will begin manufacturing from its new Collegedale plant in the coming months.

Officials said, "By using local companies, spreading awareness of the health benefits of a plant-based diet, and creating a manufacturing process that produces nearly zero waste, WayFare is a
company committed to benefiting not only Chattanoogans, but the rest of the world."

WayFare products can be found in Whole Foods, Ice Cream Show, Village Market and other locations.


Wally's – Good For What Ails You

The colder it gets outside, I knew I could talk Crazy Betty into going to breakfast with me. It’s hard to get Lois to get out with me on really cold days and Lou has been doing some traveling.

Lois and I wanted to try Firebirds Grill on Gunbarrel Road for some time now, but it has been quite crowded (even during the time old folk usually eat dinner).

Lawlessness At Heritage Park

As a frequent visitor at Heritage Park in East Brainerd, I must say that the situation is becoming slightly out of control.  To start, parking is atrocious.  The unpaved lot contains nothing but loose gravel which has naturally given way to divots in the ground assuring you a few bumps.  Why isn't this area smoothed out?  It's not worth parking there anyways ...

Roy Exum: A ‘Black Friday’ Poem

On this, “Black Friday,” when frantic shopping and crowded aisles cause some nerves to wear thin, please allow me to share a poem a friend sent me not long ago called “Shoes in Church.” Perhaps it will be fitting: SHOES IN CHURCH I showered and shaved.
