In June I attended the Summer Fancy Food Show where I met Elisabeth Allwein, the Food Development Director at Cheryl’s. There, I had the chance to talk to her about Cheryl’s new line of gluten free cookies and brownies, which just hit the market this past summer!
The gluten-free line features Cheryl’s famous baked goods including fudge brownies, brownie walnut cookies, snicker doodle cookies, chocolate chip cookies, and buttercream frosted sugar cookies, which is to die for. The new gluten free goodies exceed the FDA regulations for gluten free foods, meaning you can safely eat all the cookies you want! The gluten free line is made in separate, dedicated gluten free facility. And they make for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your gluten free loved one(s)!
I’ve tried a lot of gluten free cookies over the years and I have to say that the buttercream frosted cookie is one of the best by far. It is soft and sweet enough that it keeps me coming back for more. I’m also a big fan of the snickerdoodle cookies and fudgey, chocolaty brownies!! The Brownie walnut cookies and chocolate chip cookies are for those that prefer hard and crunchy cookies, they taste great, but I just prefer the softer cookies.
Each cookie and brownie is individually wrapped and available for purchase online. From birthday gifts, to holiday gifts, to thank you gifts, there is something for everyone and every budget. Gluten Free Cookies and Brownies range from $6.99 – $49.99.
Another reason I support Cheryl’s is because they use a gluten free bakery in Columbus, OH, owned byARC Industries, an organization that aims to offer employment opportunities to developmentally and intellectually disabled adults. Cheryl’s already employs some people from ARC, and continues to support this community group and their kitchen, as a training ground for seasonal hires in the future. Cheryl’s brought in some of its own gluten-free equipment, sanitation and production processes as well as management to work with ARC employees.
