In March I met Marion of Pamela’s Products at a gluten-free vendor fair that my support group hosted. Marion kindly gave me samples of their products to review.
Pamela’s Products makes gluten-free cookies and baking mixes. Their Allergy Information page contains an easy to read chart which indicates which allergens are in which products. They also state at the top of that page:
Pamela’s gluten-free cookies and mixes are produced on 100% dedicated gluten-free machinery.
But not only is the machinery gluten-free, the whole facility is. You might enjoy reading Pamela’s story and how she got started:
“I left the family business to start my own independent company founded on the premise that wheat-free and gluten-free foods can taste great and that everyone should have food delicious enough to celebrate.”
The products I took home to sample included three cookies and three mixes.
For years I have bought Pamela’s cookies as an occasional treat, and I have never had one I didn’t like. Some I do like better than others, but they all have good flavor. The three shown are all part of their traditional cookies line. They also have a line of organic cookies which I have tried a couple of and really like.
The baking mixes shown I had never tried before. I have used their bread mix many times, but that’s it for their mixes. The cornbread I used one evening to top a Mexican casserole. I usually make the corn bread from scratch, but it was a time saver to use this mix, and my family didn’t notice the difference.
The chocolate cake and frosting mixes I saved for my son’s 20th birthday. Since his birthday happened to fall on Mother’s Day, it was nice to have a mix that enabled me to make his birthday cake without spending too much time in the kitchen. Everyone enjoyed and praised the cake.
You can see how delicious it looks. I only put a thin layer of frosting in the middle, because I was fearful of not having enough for the outer part of the cake. It turns out that the mix makes plenty and I need not have worried. There was enough left over that I could have made that middle layer thicker.
The Giveaway: Marion has kindly offered the same six products and a few “just for fun” baking items to be given away to one winner. The giveaway is limited to continental US residents.
