A friend of Go Dairy Free, Barb Nicoletti, trialed Sweet Alexis, and has the following quick review to share.
“This company is about making simple pleasures simple for people with food allergies,” remarks Sweet Alexis founder, Michele Fellows. “Our products are made to be as good, if not better, than the traditional variety, but are safe for people with egg, dairy and nut allergies,” she explains.
Sweet Alexis is a new company food allergy company specializing in creating mini loves and cookies for the food allergic. The facility is a dedicated facility that is free of dairy, egg, peanuts and tree nuts!
Tasting Notes for Sweet Alexis
The box contained the cutest little mini loves and mini packages of cookies freshly baked. I was surprised to see how fresh these loaves actually were! Especially since they were shipped a few days prior to my receiving them.
We had a chance to try the mini pumpkin bread, mini chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, mini banana bread , oatmeal cookies and a package of chocolate chip cookies.
When I opened the cake, the aroma alone said chocolate all the way, but the flavor and quality did not disappoint. It was rich, moist and oh so chocolatey … definitely lip-licking good. *(note that the chocolate cake does contain honey and thus may not be suitable for strict vegans)
Since pumpkin bread is one of my all time favorite fall breads, I do consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur on this subject. The drizzle of icing was just enough, but even if the loaf did not contain icing, it would still be a hit in my book. The mini loaf was soft, moist, packed with fall flavor and dense, the way pumpkin bread should be.
Chocolate Chip Cookie
The chocolate chip cookies were excellent. The ratio of chips to cookie was perfect, just the right amount for little chubby fingers. My son could not get enough of these! If he could have, he would have eaten the entire package in one sitting.
With any product, you should always read the labels carefully to ensure that is it safe to consume. Now when it comes to prices it may leave a whole in your wallet. At $6.25 for an 8oz mini loaf plus shipping, this is a tad steep. But on the other hand, when paying for a quality gourmet product it seems worth the price, especially if you are not an avid baker. These mini loaves and cookies can be frozen and pulled out for that perfect occasion, a person on the run, or whenever you are hankering for a slice of banana bread.
