Cheeky Monkey is a cute brand with an important message: we can reduce peanut allergies. Cheeky Monkey Peanut Butter Puffs were created by Tzippi Witz, and have been shown to be a good first peanut food to give to infants.
Recent studies in the New England Journal of Medicine have shown that early exposure to peanuts reduces the incidences of peanut allergies later in life, so a snack like the Peanut Butter Puffs is not only meant to be tasty, but also to do good deeds.
In addition to being shown to help reduce peanut allergies, Cheeky Monkey Peanut Butter Puffs are certified Organic by USDA, Canada, and the EU standards, as well as certified Gluten-Free, Kosher, and Vegan. They've also been certified by the Rainforest Alliance, Feingold, and RSPO.
For about $30, you can try the Puffs through Amazon, but they'll be here in Boston shortly, on September 18, for the Boston Local Food Festival. I'll definitely be there to check out the Peanut Butter Puffs!

The 2016 Boston Local Food Festival is coming up soon! The festival is scheduled for September 18th from 11 am to 5 pm on the Greenway.
New to the festival this year is the Shuckin' Truck, bringing fresh seafood and a raw bar to the event. The Shuckin' Truck is known for being a family business, supplying their fish from the Roebuck family fishing vessels and their oysters from another family business, Salt Pond Oysters. The oysters are sustainably grown and harvested year round in Point Judith, Rhode Island.
While the oysters are available year round, the rest of the menu changes based on what fish are seasonably available. Throughout the year, they offer dishes such as a sea scallop roll, mango lobster tacos, and the family's traditional lobster rolls.
I'm pretty excited to try out the seafood at the Shuckin' Truck while I'm at the Festival this year!
