I recently received a big box of complimentary gluten-free sweets from Katz Gluten Free Bake Shoppe to sample and review on my blog.
Katz is a dedicated and certified gluten-free bakery (it is also completely nut-free and dairy-free), and all of their products are certified Kosher. Katz was established in 2006 by Mrs. Katz, the mother of two gluten-intolerant children, so she knows firsthand the challenges that parents of dietary-restricted children have to deal with everyday in order to keep our kiddos safe. You can read more about Katz here.
We personally sampled the Chocolate Cupcakes, Honey Muffins, Apricot Tarts, Chocolate Dipped Cookies, Chocolate Strip, Chocolate Chip Cookies and the Cinnamon Rugelech (the nutrition information is available for each product on the Katz website).
The hands down favorites of my clan were the Cinnamon Rugelech and the Apricot Tarts. Sam waged a great campaign for me to allow the rugelech as a breakfast option (since they look like “cinnamon rolls,” but unfortunately for him, mom didn’t just fall of the turnip truck, LOL!).
My husband loved the Apricot Tarts, he said the slightly tart apricot center was a nice complement to the sweet shortbread-style cookie.
I wish I could give you a more descriptive review on the other products, but the only words my brood could muster were “mmm, good” (I really need to expand their vocabulary of descriptive words!). Personally, I can tell you that the products had great texture, but…I think it’s time I share something with you:
Medical Oddity Disclaimer: I haven’t mentioned this yet because I haven’t been quite sure what to make of it (and I keep expecting things to back to normal any day now!), but…I have been without my sense of taste for 3 months now! Not only that, everything tastes like metal (I think that’s how I would describe it), isn’t that weird? I have no idea why (I do know that it started with a sinus infection back in June), but it makes doing reviews a little challenging for me because I can only tell you about texture and what my “official taste testers” think!
