Just found these at my grocer last week and they are gluten-free! Even the Tortoni's! These Italian desserts are package individually and come with 2 or more in each package. Ice cream is Ice cream but did you ever think you'd be able to have a Tortoni again or Praline Pecan Truffles or even Spumoni? Well these versions are made with Gelato and gluten-free ingredients. I had to buy one to taste before I blogged about it...yeah that's what I tell myself...It's for the blog. Anyways, I chose the Spumoni. An even mix of Strawberry, Chocolate and Vanilla made with swirls or cherry and nuts. What can I say, I'm nuts for Spumoni's! The brand is a branch of off the supermaket Food Emporium. It is called The Food Emporium Trading Company. Now Food Emporium has been the last market on the spectrum to carry or support Celiac Disease. It's the market I go to because I like their produce, but I have been waiting. Lately and slowly they are bringing in GF products. But VERY slowly. This is why I got so excited when I saw this Gelato. Some of these desserts are encrusted in chocolate shells, something I thought for sure would have gluten. But I was wrong. It's all good!
Try your favorite ole time Italian Desserts, guilt free! Spumoni, Tortoni, Truffles, Sweethearts...
As you can see, Gluten-Free labeling is important to this brand. New labeling makes me happy!
With this brand you don't have to call the 800 number in the back. Their easy listing of ingredients and labeling makes any GF person a happy person.
For me this one was the real shocker. I picked this up and thought, this is sooo not gluten-free. I thought maybe a few of them were, but not all. But I picked up each box including this one, and check. All labeled GF.
I highly recommned these dessert treats! If you can get your hands on them, stock up.
You can find these treats at all Food Emporium Locations. The Murray Hill location on 31st and Third Ave carries them as well.
