I have to admit that I am the kind of person that would rather make something from scratch than read the label on a box to figure out if it is safe for me to eat or not. I get tired of reading the fine print on a label every time I go to the store to buy something packaged. I realized the other day that the sandwich buns I buy all the time had changed their ingredients list. It makes going to the store such a pain. I have gotten to the point where, if it is not labeled plain and simple, then I don’t even bother. I got a package from Home Free products the other day that included three boxes of cookies. I was happy to see right off the bat that it was very clearly labeled with allergy free information! It is all there, for you to see without scanning every detail on the box! I received the Mini Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Mini Chocolate Chip and Soft Oatmeal Cookies. Now, I love whole grain, organic foods ordinarily.
So, I decided to give these the real test…my little guys. I have to say that these were giving a huge, double thumbs up from the critics! They loved them and wanted more! I even had a little cookie monster walking around with the package. We had to tell him not to eat the whole package of Mini Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. So, I would say Home Free products are great to have on hand when you don’t have the time to make a homemade treat, but don’t feel like reading through the garbage on the side of all the other products out there! You do have to order them online from www.homefreetreats.com. Although that is not as convenient as getting them from the store, it is nice to know that there is a company out there that provides good allergy free treats that the whole family can enjoy!
