Kim Moldofsky, Scrambled CAKE – All Enjoy Life foods are specially made (in nearby Schiller Park) to be free of all eight common allergens. They contain NO wheat/gluten, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish or shellfish, and they’re made without other common triggers of intolerance: casein, potato, sesame and sulfites. So, they just sell empty bags and boxes right? Far from it.
Their extensive product line includes cookies, granola, snack bars, bagels trail mix and chocolate chips.
I’ve become oddly addicted to their “Not nuts! Nut free trail mix.” It’s got sweet and salty, fruit bits and mini-chocolate chips as well as sunflower seeds. I didn’t miss the nuts, though admittedly, DH did. As for the cookies, Enjoy Life’s soft cookies are about the size of a flattened golf ball. And Pickahu especially enjoyed the chocolate chip cookies, while I favored the Snickerdoodles.
To some degree gluten-free baked goods are an acquired taste. Newbies should be aware that gluten-free baked goods tend to be denser and chewier than their flour-filled counterparts. If you don’t think the whole class will go for them, it’s at least nice to know you can fill a goody bag or provide a special treat to an allergic child, a child whose taste buds, no doubt, are adapted to gluten/dairy free snacks/nut-free snacks.
