We tried it: Sweet gluten-free goodies

What was I doing when the first day of spring rolled around? Opening up tidy white boxes packed with gluten-free (that’s no wheat, no barley, no malt) treats from Sally’s Bakeshop!


Now, GF goodies are a curious bunch. Often they’re crumbly or cardboard-like, flavorless or way too sweet. But Sally’s has hit the nail on the head with their scrumptious sweets…and trust me, I’ve tried a lot of ‘em.


The brownies were dense and fudge-y with a buttery chocolate flavor that was solid without being too intense. The chocolate chip cookies were just like my mom’s—crunchy and loaded with chocolate chips—though they did have a slightly earthy aftertaste.


Aside from the GF assortment, the bakeshop offers loads of options: tea scones and cookies, cakes, macaroons, butter cookies, black and whites, oatmeal cookies and more. And best of all, these treats are made from all-natural ingredients, and are preservative and trans fat-free. The bakeshop itself also takes kosher, sugar-free and gluten-free diets very seriously—a huge plus for folks with dietary restrictions.


Check out for more deets—but be prepared to drool over their delish-looking pics. Hmm…is it time for dessert yet?
