Katz Gluten Free Review and Giveaway



I know I’ve done a few reviews/giveaways in the past for some gluten free products and since discovering gluten free I have since decided to go mostly gluten free even though no one in my immediate family has any allergies but I just prefer to have it on hand just incase a family friend or family member or their kiddos have to eat gluten free and so they don’t have to go without the sweet treats that the others are eating. Like I said I’ve tried other gluten free products and they have all been really good but when I had a look at the products offered at Katz Gluten Free and it made my mouth water…they offer gluten products that I have not yet tried and I was extremely excited when they agreed to let me review their products and offer my readers an awesome giveaway!

About Katz Gluten Free (Taken From Website):

Katz Gluten Free Bake Shoppe was established in early 2006 by F. Katz, with not much more than a home model kitchen mixer, some thoroughly tested recipes, and an unyielding quest for perfection. As word of our famously delicious confections rapidly spread, so did our base of operations.

Today, Katz Gluten Free operates out of a state-of-the-art facility, which has been Certified Gluten-Free by the Gluten Intolerance Group® (www.gluten.net) , for our unmatched reliability in complying with strict gluten-free standards. Our facility is completely nut-free and dairy-free. All of our products are certified Kosher, and are under the stringent supervision of the OU and Rabbi Y. Gruber.

As the mother of two children who are gluten intolerant, Mrs. Katz knows firsthand the hardships and daily struggles parents endure in their attempts to maintain a thoroughly gluten-free diet for their kids. She knows - as only a parent could - that the only way to minimize and avoid temptation, is by offering a variety of products that are rich in flavor, texture, and taste. That is why she constantly strives to concoct recipes that are as luscious as they are healthy.

We feature an extensive, ever-expanding selection of products, to meet the culinary demands of every gluten-intolerant individual. Our products consist only of pure, all natural high-quality and fresh ingredients, with no preservatives added, and are thoroughly taste-tested to ensure absolute goodness in every bite.

At Katz Gluten Free, we are truly passionate about our products and we hope that so are you. Our entire staff is committed to earning your satisfaction. We therefore welcome and anticipate your comments and suggestions. It is, after all, your input and feedback that have helped us achieve our goal of creating the most sought-after baked goods in the gluten-free market.

Are you looking to break free from gluten foods?
If you answered yes then you are absolutely in the right place. Just like you, we also love the smell of freshly baked bread. We anticipate every bite of a decadent chocolate cake. We also can’t stop eating delicious cupcakes. The problem is that gluten just doesn’t get along with us. That means that all the yummy delights like strips, muffins, cookies and challahs are off limits. Gluten foods can wreak havoc with a gluten sensitive person. The reactions can be mild to life threatening. So, like the rest of you who can’t eat gluten foods or have kids that can’t eat gluten free foods, Mrs. Katz was left with very little choices. That’s why in 2006 she went on a mission. Armed with traditional recipes and the belief that gluten free food can taste just as good as gluten foods, she started her own gluten free trading company.

Our complete range of foods is certified to be gluten free foods
Everything in our menu is gluten free. Not only do we also make sure that it is dairy free and nut free. This ensures our customers health and well being. We are also very proud of our dedicated factory that only produces products that are not gluten foods. This means none of our menu items is effected by cross contamination from gluten foods. This is something most manufacturers should also be aware of. When gluten foods and gluten free products are produced in the same facilities, gluten from the production line can easily contaminate gluten free food. This can be very detrimental to individuals who need to be on a strict gluten free diet.

So when you try one of our gluten free cakes, challahs, cookies, muffins, strips, rugelech, breads, rolls, loafs or pizza crust you can rest assured that every step has been taken to safe guard your health and please your taste buds. Katz gluten free makes sure that it is gluten free and full of taste.


Our Thoughts:

We were sent a large assortment of yummy goodies from Katz Gluten Free to review and I was amazed at how fresh all the goodies were when they arrived at our door and they were packed nice and secure with a cold pack to keep them fresh. I was advised to freeze upon receiving them and I did so but I left the Cinnamon Rugelech out so we could try them first and it was totally love at first bite with these delicious rolls of heaven!!! I hate to admit it but I think I ate most of the Cinnamon Rugelech all by myself!!

We also got to try the White Bread which was delicious as well and usually I give “Bug” his toast and peanut butter sandwiches on wheat bread but he has been asking for the white bread since we received it and I will be honest I was a little skeptic of the taste since it had been frozen but it tasted just like it was straight out of the oven, so soft and yummy! I’ve also fallen in love with the Marble Cake that they sent as well this makes a wonderful after dinner desert and best of all it is great either out of the freezer or with some butter warmed just a bit in the microwave! We also tried the Chocolate Rugelech and these were so good that I could have devoured these all by myself as well but I decided to share with “Bug” and he wiped them out pretty quickly!

Katz also sent us some of their Honey Muffins and these make a wonderful quick breakfast, Chad had these all ate up in no time, taking them to work with him of the morning when he left, I kept them in the freezer and he would take them two at a time and he said they were completely thawed and ready to eat by the time he made it to work and he has been asking for more!! The last item they sent us to review was their Apricot Tarts and to be honest I’ve never had anything Apricot before but now I’m questioning why it’s taken me so long…these are like a dream and so moist and delicious!

Bottom Line:

We loved all the items we were sent to review, each of them had an amazing flavor that to me didn’t taste Gluten Free at all, even “Bug” devoured them without even a second thought and that’s saying something because he is a very picky eater when it comes to his sweets and snacks! We loved them so much that we are right now putting together an order to try some of their other yummy products like their Chocolate Chip cookies :0)!!!

If you have someone in your family that has to be Gluten Free why not make it easy and very tasty by checking out the goodies available at Katz Gluten Free…your taste buds will defiantly thank you! I was also thinking that with the holidays quickly approaching that any of these yummy goodies would make a wonderful addition to a Gluten Free gift basket or would be wonderful to have on hand for friends and family during the season…because goodness knows your going to have to do enough cooking so why not let Katz help with the treats?
