Hanging out with Kaylee, Caedon and Zion | Triumph Dining Product Review

Zion's BarOur friends at Better Batter recently introduced gluten-free snack bars. The bars are a bit different than your regular gluten-free treats. Each supports one of the company’s causes and is named for the child that chose the philanthropy. The brownie batter, Caedon’s, supports providing clean water for kids in developing countries. Cherry chocolate Kaylee’s promotes Celiac awareness. Zion’s chocolate mint supports Autism awareness and research.

Wegmans Recalls Gluten-Free Brownie Mixes

By Bridget

Though it may be old news at this point, it is no less important to follow food recalls. As I mentioned in my post last week about Halloween food safety, there have been a continuing number of recalls on peanut products from a contamination experienced this summer!

Many people can find themselves with contaminated products sitting on their shelves because the product is non-perishable, and therefore can become infected weeks or even months after a recall was initially announced.

Therefore, though the recall was announced in October, I thought it would be important to bring your attention to a recall of Wegmans’ Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix.

Sticky Fingers Gluten-Free Scones

By Laura (The Gluten-Free Traveller)

 

For those of you who miss eating tasty, crumbly scones, Sticky Fingers Bakeries have introduced a new line of great gluten-free scone mixes.

Sticky Fingers Bakeries began in 1987 as a retail bakery in San Diego. Their scones were so popular that the bakery founders worked to develop a mix that scone lovers could use to make their own tasty scones at home.

Most recently they launched their gluten-free range featuring four flavors, certified by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization.

Original, Apple Oat, Meyer Lemon and Wild Blueberry, all of their gluten-free scone mixes are free from trans and saturated fats, preservatives, artificial flavors and artificial colors.

These gluten-free scones are also super simple to make – all it takes is water, a little oil and 15 minutes of baking to turn them golden brown. Each box of mix makes around ten scones.

Crumbly and sweet, these scones are great as they are or served with butter, jam, honey or creamy nut butter!
