After our first visit to a gluten free bakery in Denver I wasn’t quite as jazzed about going to another. However, the wife and I were in Colorado Springs for dinner and we were a bit early.
So we tried out the “find me gluten free” app to see what we would find. The bakery was nearby so we dropped by. (That rhymes and you know it) The outside was unassuming and we prepared ourselves to be underwhelmed again. When the door opened a smell danced right up to our noses like in the old Bugs Bunny Cartoons. Soon we found ourselves floating.
They had several samples out and the gentleman working there was kind and helpful. We mentioned my blog, which he had never heard of and he started giving us additional samples. (Yes, I know I am a celebrity.) We tried cheese crackers that tasted just like Cheese-its. We had cinnamon graham crackers. We had soft spongy gluten free, egg free, vegan oat bread. How in the world do they make that taste good? I have no idea. They also had loaves and products that had air bubbles or came out smaller with reduced prices. Some were up to 70 percent off!
|Free samples??? Don't mind if I do.|
|Yes, we are pigs, deal with it!|
From the cookies, to the tantalizing teff bread, to the super soft hot dog buns, we were sold. We ended up venturing back a few days later before we left Colorado Springs. The prices were incredible for such quality. They even had teff, gluten free flour tortillas. They have products available at “Food For Thought” in Wichita but they have to mark them up so much based on shipping and overhead. These prices were some of the best I have experienced anywhere.
If you are within an hour of Colorado Springs and you have to eat gluten free, this place needs to be at the top of your list.
