I agree Carin, the choices are not good. No gluten free products. At least one should have been offered. Organizers are not thinking of healthier options. Cafe Gaston and Blissful Banana were only two that offered good healthier food. No wonder Americans are overweight, every sports arena has poor choices as well. I suppose I would only stop there for the music and then there's all those people. Eat healthy before you go.

At Long time resident .... visit BANANA BLISS' booth! Gluten free and organic ..

When we arrived Blissful only had desserts. They were the one place I wanted to try too but I don't really eat desserts Nothing seemed smaller size portions. The pizza slices were as big as my head. I get wanting more food for your money but I always thought to Taste was to have smaller portions to eat at more than one place. I'd love restaurants to try out new menu options. What better way than a tasting to get feedback?

Checkout the Blissful Banana I think.
