Bakery on Main Holiday Packages

Bakery on Main recently contacted me to test out their Gluten Free Gift Set, available just in time for the holiday season.  I happily obliged; I'm a longtime fan of Bakery on Main's products and was interested to see the company's gluten free holiday present set.  I had never thought of a gluten free gift set as a holiday gift, but I suppose it's a popular idea.  I picked up some non-gluten free treats for my friends the other day at Harry & David's... there should be options for us gluten free people too!

The box is a great idea for your holiday shopping, particularly if you are gifting to college students or frequent travelers.  The box comes filled with a reusable grocery bag; three gluten free granola bars in the flavors of Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Cranberry Maple Nut, and Extreme Trail Mix; and gluten free granola snack packs in the flavors of Apple Raisin Walnut, Nutty Cranberry Maple, Extreme Fruit & Nut, Triple Berry, and Cinnamon Raisin Flavors.  All in all, it's a pretty full package!

As you Celiacs out there know, traveling while gluten free is often difficult.  I always bring some of Bakery on Main's products along with me while traveling in case I can't find a gluten free-friendly (and healthy) option in airports, bus stations, train stations, etc.  This gift box would make for the ideal gift for your frequent traveler or for the always-on-the-go college student in your life.

Bakery on Main also sent me samples of their latest product: Soft & Chewy Gluten Free Granola Bars.  Before I went gluten free I was never a big fan of granola bars, but now that I am gluten free I always see people eating Odwalla or Clif bars and get jealous.  If you miss eating granola bars, Bakery on Main has set out to fulfill your wishes by creating this new line.

The granola bars come in three flavors: Peanut Butter & Jelly, Chocolate Almond, and Apple Cinnamon.  I really enjoyed all three flavors.  The bars' name is certainly not a misnomer; these bars are much chewier whereas most gluten free "granola" bars are often crunchy.  I really loved these bars and will definitely be purchasing them when they hit shelves.  Again, these are great products to have if you're the type of person who is frequently on the go.  These bars aren't quite as filling as the granola bars featured in the gift set; they seemed to be a bit smaller.  I can definitely envision myself enjoying one of these while in an airport with an Odwalla drink.

Do you love it or do you love it?
