Part of Jon’s biggest issues with following the gluten-free diet is missing out on his old favorites. Being diagnosed as an adult as one thing. Being diagnosed as child, who remembers what gluten-filled foods are like, is tough. As I have written about before the gluten-free product selection has really come a long way.
Back in December I received and reviewed some complimentary samples from Shabtai Gourmet. There were a couple of products that I was not able to get to. I just pulled the Super Moist Brownies out of the freezer the other day & we were finally able to dig into them.
I had fully intended on cutting these up & sending some into work with my husband for his gluten-free co-workers & then getting Jon & Hannah dessert. Somehow a bite made it into my mouth and I have to say that I was amazed! These tasted like Ho-Ho’s! Do you remember Ho-Ho’s? The only thing missing was the cream in the middle. Jon didn’t believe me until he took a bite. He was floored! The texture, the frosting – a Ho-Ho in a brownie-like form. These are made with with zero trans fat and are soy, casein & lactose-free.
Shabtai Gourmet offers free shipping on all continental US orders! I noticed that they have Ring Tings, which appear to be Hostess-like chocolate cupcakes with cream filling that I bet taste a lot like a Ho-Ho! I think that we will be placing an order soon.
