Moon Cheese | Triumph Dining Product Review

Moon CheeseI’ve been traveling a bit lately and NEVER get on a plane without some sort of food that I know is safe to eat. I pack snacks from home, but I usually end up looking for some in the airport, too. Airports have tons of junk food, but I don’t normally want chocolate as my snack and a salad is just too cumbersome to carry and eat on the plane.

While walking through the Toronto Pearson International Airport recently, I discovered Moon Cheese at a snack stand. The info on the front of the zip lock package read: “High in protein, all natural, gluten free and an excellent source of calcium.” Ingredients: “Only 100% cheese.” It hooked me in.

Triumph Dining Gluten-Free Dining Cards Now in German

Triumph Dining CardsFor over 10 years, Triumph Dining has published our now-famous dining cards. We originally created these cards because we wanted to provide restaurant staff with complete instructions for preparing a non-contaminated gluten-free meal. We didn’t want to leave anything to chance, so we created gluten-free dining cards in several languages to make sure chefs could read the cards in their native language.

In the beginning, we thought gluten-free diners would use the cards at ethnic restaurants close to home and while traveling across the U.S. and Canada. We were elated to learn that many gluten-free diners also bought our dining cards to take along when they traveled abroad.
