Lately, we have been hearing a lot of stories about how food allergies (and restrictions) can prevent friends and family members from enjoying all that summer has to offer. Parents share their frustrations with summer camps that have an inability to accommodate food allergies or restrictions, preventing their children from participating in camps with their friends. Birthday parties can be worrisome for parents, and children alike due to the possibility of cross contamination of common food allergens such as nuts, wheat and dairy. For adults, we hear a lot about their struggle to find allergen friendly, gluten-free or vegan breads and buns. We listen to our customers and we try meet their needs by developing recipes that taste like their traditional favorites while adhering to our strict quality and safety standards.
This year, as a result of customer feedback – we introduced a “Summer Camp Kit” that contained a fresh bagel, trail mix, cookies and a fresh apple. We also introduced our trail mix as a stand alone item for those who wanted a quick, safe snack on the go. We are still working on a gluten free bun for our customers who have requested a bakery-fresh option and will introduce it once we develop a recipe that is up to our standards.
Our cakes, cupcake displays and custom sugar cookies are a perfect addition to any celebration. Call us to request a quote and discuss theme options for your next special occasion to ease your mind on whether there will be a safe option for your friends and family.
