This remarkable basket full of Promise Gluten Free foods arrived here this past week. It was stuffed with Promise Gluten Free breads, of which there are numerous varieties, buns, and baked treats. The Lemon Muffins and the Double Chocolate Muffins caught my eye. Sadly they also didn’t escape the kid’s eyes. But luckily they shared. Or I might have been extremely perturbed because the muffins are the best gluten free baked goods I have ever had.
What do I know about gluten free? Am I gluten free? Not right now. But in my twenties I was gluten free for a very long time due to the Crohn’s Disease which was extremely active in my twenties. I managed my symptoms with diet and my diet was very restricted back then. Luckily I can eat a wider variety of foods now in my 40s. But here’s what I remember of gluten free foods back then, fifteen to twenty years ago. They were dry and excruciatingly expensive. I was in graduate school and newly married and ill and struggling to build a career and I hated paying $5 or $6 for a gluten free cookie that tasted like cardboard. Now the tide has changed clearly and gluten free is a way of life for a huge percentage of the population. I think it’s smart when I see stores and restaurants that are keeping up with the times and offering tasty healthy gluten free options. Promise gluten free foods are part of that movement.
Can you see the ribbons of lemon filling? Holy smokes. I love that. This was delicious. The chocolate muffins were equally good but lemon is my thing. Anyways, there’s obviously more to the Promise line than treats and muffins, right? Well we tried the plain low fat white loaf of bread and I found it good. Daughter pronounced the crust chewy. She might be a harder sell on the bread itself. But this one to me was much better than the gluten free bread I have tasted before. I like that there are variations of nutritious breads that I might never have thought of – such as the chia seed loaf. There is a raisin bread too. I haven’t sampled that one yet but I plan to pull a switcharoo on the kids because they love raisin toast and bread.
