This sample pack is prefect for trying different things I and I know I will be placing an order very soon 🙂
The first thing I tried was the rugelach, of course I did, it’s chocolate! Rugelach is a traditional Jewish pastry and means ‘’little twists’’ in Yiddish. The dough is not as soft as a cookie but it’s not hard either. The dough is rolled around sweet fillings such as chocolate, raisins, nuts or preserves. I was never a fan of the fruit or nut rugelach growing up so I was a little skeptical about how this one would be. The cinnamon rugelach is one of my favorite gluten free desserts. I’ve actually had this before and I absolutely love it! It’s delicious, with a mild cinnamon flavor, not overly sweet and had a great texture; light and flaky, yet firm at the same time. It almost reminded me of a freshly baked cinnamon roll, but less sugary and without the frosting.
Next I tried the chocolate, which was not my favorite, surprisingly. I could taste the richness of the chocolate and it tastes just like the ‘real’ thing, but without gluten!!
Honey Muffin – It has a very distinct honey flavor. The inside is very crumbly, and a bit dry. The top is nice and moist with lots of what looks like crystalized honey and sugar, a little too much for me, and very sweet.
Chocolate chip cookies – not my favorite, but they have a nice texture and are loaded with chocolate chip.
Marble Cake – Talk about yummy! Not too sweet, but just right to satisfy my chocolate/cake craving!! It has the prefect blend of vanilla and chocolate swirls. It stayed together nicely, no crumbs, which means no mess! I hate cutting into gluten free cakes or breads and it just falls apart and crumbs go everywhere.
Chocolate Cupcake– Rich dark chocolate, but a bit dry. They come unfrosted so if I ever do get this again I will add my own frosting.
All the slices of bread, which is true of all gluten free bread, were on the small side. The wholesome bread & whole grain were dry and dense. I didn’t like the texture or the taste, it was very grainy and left a bad taste in my mouth.
The Challah & White bread were my favorite, soft and more moist than the others.
I also really liked the dinner roll. It’s one of the best dinner rolls I’ve ever had! Great texture and not too dry
