Over the last few years, I have heard a good deal about Jennifer Esposito’s advocacy endeavors, and the establishment of Jennifer’s Way Bakery in New York. After reading up on it, I have become very impressed with Ms. Esposito’s dedication to not only gluten-free baking, but “clean,” healthy baking, baking of the sort I do for myself, and long to do for those I love and whose health I cherish.
Jennifer’s Way Bakery is free of many food allergens aside from gluten, along with the nasty preservatives and processed sugars and fats that wreak havoc on our bodies. Her offerings are gluten-, dairy-. egg-. refined sugar-, GMO-, soy-, nut-, and trans-fat-free, as well as free of preservatives. These are baked goods you can feel good about eating. And without all of these ingredients, the products really do taste amazing.
I am unable to visit the retail bakery in New York, but discovered recently that several of Ms. Esposito’s products can be mail-ordered from her new commercial bakery via the Jennifer’s Way Website. On the eastern US (we count as being in that area), your goods will arrive within 2 business days to ensure freshness, and this shipping option is automatically applied. For areas further west, there are other shipping choices that ensure the products will arrive within two days, as well. There are occasionally deals on different goodies and on shipping, so check in to see what is being offered. To start out, celiac disease advocate Gluten Dude offers a coupon on his site, if you’d like to give something at Jennifer’s Way a try.
I happened upon the site during a bagel promotion, and… pretty much bought every type of bagel there.
They. Were. Amazing.
Huge, tempting, chewy on the outside, tender on the inside, these Brooklyn Bagels are certainly the best gluten-free bagels I’ve had. I loved all the varieties, but my favorites included the “everything” bagel (I never had the opportunity to try a “normal” everything bagel before my diagnosis, so this was a real treat), and the cinnamon cranberry bagel.
At first, I was wary of trying mail-order bakery goods, but I am so glad I took a chance on Jennifer’s Way. My products arrived fresh and well-packaged, and in a timely manner. I stored many of them in the freezer, where they kept well.
I highly recommend these healthy, delicious goods!
