Well, I did a bad thing. Normally when I do a food review, I stage the goods nicely, take a photograph of them, then eat them. This time they went straight into my mouth. Oops. So, I apologize, I do not have any photos to go with this review.
I bumped into Heather’s Fairy Tale Bakery at a Farmers Market in Stevens County, WA. It was their last day there, so I decided to go out on a limb and try more than just one item. (I don’t get out much.) I wasn’t disappointed.
I’m not a big fan of chocolate chip cookies in general, but there was something about the way these looked in the case – like they were perfectly cooked. They were golden brown around the edges and spoke to me. Sure enough, chewy in the middle, loaded with chocolate chips, and no hint of being gluten-free. Yay Heather!
Next I tried the sugar cookie. I prefer a chewier consistency than what this offered, but I have to say, the flavor was unique and excellent. There was just a hint of a spice – perhaps cinnamon – that really made it a treat.
Last was a Nanaimo bar. I’d never had one of these before, and I was a bit reluctant to try it because it looked incredibly rich. I tend to appreciate more delicate flavors – but that’s just me. The flavor was a robust chocolate and a lovely creme. The consistency did not give away that it was gluten-free. Since I’d never tried one of these before, I didn’t have a clue what they were supposed to taste like, so I had a gluten-monger experienced with Nanaimos try it and he said it was right on the money. So there you have it. I spaced this treat out over about an hour’s time. Chocolate lovers will rejoice, for certain.
All gluten-free, all reasonably priced, and all delicious. Visit Heather’s Fairy Tale Bakery online at www.heathersfairytalebakery.com or in person at the address below.
