Product Review: Shabtai Gourmet Raspberry Roll

A couple of months back, I received some complimentary products from Shabtai Gourmet to review. I stored some of those products in the freezer because there was simply no way to get through them all. Yesterday we had my in-laws over for dinner, so I pulled out the Shabtai Gourmet Raspberry Roll for dessert.

We had picked up a couple of rotisserie chickens for dinner – so simple! This is another one of my easy weeknight meal ideas. All you have to add is a side or 2 and a salad an you are set!

Now, back to the SG Raspberry Roll. I took the Raspberry Roll out of the freezer in the morning & let it defrost on the counter all day (I left it in the package at this point). Right before dinner I removed the roll from the package & placed it on a serving platter. I was tempted to dig in right then, but I behaved myself. After dinner I cut the roll into 6 slices. I couldn’t believe how moist the roll was! The flavor was just perfect – raspberry with just a touch of coconut from the outside of the roll. Even picky Jon loved this roll – he is not a fan of coconut, but tasted a bite of mine & then asked for his own slice!! He even protested when I packaged up the last 2 slices for a couple of gluten-free friends that work with my husband. If Jon doesn’t want to share, you know it is good! I would not hesitate to order this again.

I think the next item on my list from Shabtai is the Swiss Chocolate Cake Roll. My grandmother used to make a chocolate roll that looked just like this! I am sure it will bring back memories.

    Kay – I love the Apricot roll from this company even more than the Raspberry! These are sold here at Natural Foods Warehouse and Return to Eden (that I know of). Since they have free shipping with no minimum order, everyone can try them without much expense. I keep the roll in the freezer and cut a piece as needed. It takes about 40 minutes to get to a nice temp. for me to enjoy. Love it!

  2. Tiffany,

    I love all things apricot, so I will make sure to try them! I didn’t think about cutting off a slice while frozen. Great idea!! Have you tried the Chocolate Cake Roll? Looks like a big Ho-Ho! MMM!!!

    Was this soft? I had some products from them and I was expecting them to be soft, but they tasted old and hard.

    wow, when my wife first went gluten-free, I think she thought she’s never eat anything good again…I’m amazed how many great recipes are out there…thanks for sharing this one!

  5. Cara – this did not taste old & hard at all. This was soft & fresh, even after being in my freezer for a month.

    That’s good! I would like to try it again, because I have only read glowing reviews. I must have got a bad batch.
