I’m a Big Fan of Lunaberry Swirl, One of the Newest Flavors by Luna and Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss

Luna and Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss is one of the most beloved brands in the organic world. Consumers absolutely rave about their ice cream.

And for good reason.

Aside from the fact that people love ice cream in general, Luna and Larry’s delivers amazing tasting products, all of which use coconut milk as the base.

Needless to say, I have been eagerly anticipating Luna and Larry’s newest flavors but distribution problems caused delays in getting the products to the East Coast.

Finally, they arrived and I have been devouring Lunaberry Swirl ever since. Read More »

Organic Sundaes at Pure Food and Wine with David Lee from SV Angel

Written by Max Goldberg on May 24, 2011. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

As I am getting older, I find myself spending less and less time with my close friends. We are all very busy with work and family obligations, and many of us live in different cities.

Last night, it was fantastic to catch up with one of my best friends, David Lee, who was visiting NYC from San Francisco. He and I only get to see each other about once or twice a year since we live on opposite sides of the country.

We became great friends in high school (where he played like Tony Peña behind home plate), and he has gone on to become a major player in the technology world.

David Lee runs SV Angel, which is the premier angel investment fund in the country. He sees absolutely every single hot deal there is Silicon Valley and every tech entrepreneur is begging him for money. Read More »

I just knew that the hundreds and hundreds of hours I have spent roaming the aisles of supermarkets and studying menus at organic restaurants would come in handy one day.

But, I had no idea that it would lead to me writing this post.  So, here it goes….

1) More and More Coconuts

Coconuts have taken on much more prominence as of late.  A bunch of ice creams, including Luna and Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss and Purely Decadent, have coconuts as their central ingredient.  Energy bars, such as those from Raw Revolution, have used them in their products for a while.

In terms of organic coconuts, this is what I foresee.

Organic coconut water: Coconut water is a hot trend in the beverage world right now.  Some people consider coconut water to be the ultimate post-workout drink because it contains electrolytes.

However, nearly all of those boxes of coconut water that are flying off the shelves in the supermarkets are not organic.  It is only a matter of time before we see a shift to organic. Read More »

Product Recommendation: Luna and Larry's Organic Coconut Bliss – Dark Chocolate

Written by Max Goldberg on December 14, 2009. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

coconutI discovered this ice cream at the 2009 Natural Products Expo East in Boston and was blown away by it.  For so long, I had been looking for a dairy-free, soy-free and coconut-based ice cream and finally found it.

This dark chocolate flavor rocks and so does the vanilla island.  100% vegan.
