Absolutely Gluten-Free Cauliflower Crust Pizza
I've definitely seen recipes for cauliflower crusts while perusing the pages of Pinterest. But thankfully, Absolutely Gluten Free negates the need for a food processor by being the first company to offer a frozen flourless cauliflower crust 'za. Available in a dairy-free version, these mini pizzas clock in at a mere 57 calories per pop, making them a perfect snack or casual appetizer.
The cauliflower pizza exemplifies shifting values away from both gluten and grains. I expect to see more cauliflower-containing products in the future.

Choctal Ice Cream
Now this is a manufacturer that I can stand behind! The folks at Choctal are bean fiends—cocoa and vanilla beans, that is. Rather than put any ole ingredient into their ice cream, Choctal blends single-origin chocolate from Costa Rica, Ghana, Dominican Republic or Indonesia so chocolate lovers can delight in specific aromas and nuanced tastes. For example, Choctal's Ghana Chocolate Ice Cream is "rich and full-bodied" with "hints of tropical fruit and the sweet essence of fudge."
