Gluten-free Crunch

May 30, 2010
Hazelnut Crunch by Coca Mira


Mmmmmmm!  Okay, so if you have been hunting for some yummy treats because you’ve just found out that you are either celiac or have a gluten intolerance… hunt no more.

These crunches, available in either hazelnut, dark chocolate or maple flavor are TO DIE FOR!

My sister, who is a celiac and I, who has a gluten intolerance, are always on the hunt for tasty gluten-free food products…when we were introduced to these awhile back, our only problem with the product was keeping the “tasting samples” away from my desk and off our hips! But, ohhhh, they are good!

There are a lot of great new gluten-free options that we’ll be adding to our stock and to our blog so keep a look out in the future.  Our g-f radars are tuned in!

If you live in the Cochrane area… check out GF (Gluten-Free) Patisserie… located on 3rd Avenue in a cute little white ‘n blue house… open Wed-Saturday from 10-5pm… please don’t buy up all of her callebaut brownies… those are my favorites!
