The Grain Exchange: product review “The Oatmeal Caramel Delight bar.
I eat my veggies and try to hit the gym as much as I can given my daily schedule, so why not indulge every now and then in a delicious sweet treat? I know, if you are on a diet or looking to remove sugar from your diet then desert is the first thing to suffer. But I have come to realize that 5 or 6 good days on my account warrants a reward on the 7th day. Luckily I was in a position recently to find some great new products at the Appetite for Awareness 2010 event in Philly. At the event I came upon a table which was very crowded and jockeyed for position to try some sweets. The table was from the Grain Exchange
, an all gluten free bakery located inside Doylestown, PA. They had many offering to try and all were delicious but one item caught my eye more so than the others and that was their “Oatmeal Caramel Delight Bar. Manning the table was owner, Jill Colombo and after a lengthy discussion about her products she sent me home to try out their Oatmeal Carmel Delight Bar. After letting it sit in my fridge for about four days it was time to try it.
Simply delicious! A real treat for sure. Four days later and it was just as moist and delicious as all her other items at the event. The oatmeal bar didn’t give me a generic store bought confection type of feeling, rather it gave me more of a sit down for coffee and cake type of feeling. Basically, an item you would want to bring to someone’s house when visiting, which is a nice departure from just a box cake with a glass of milk. The Grain Exchange says they use no preservatives or additives and all of their products are gluten free, and I have to say that the product does have a “baked at home from scratch type of feel and texture while eating it.
Currently, their products are available in PA and in select areas of NJ. However after speaking with Jill after the event in Philly, it seems she has to answer up to a successful outing and is now looking to get her bakery items delivered near and far.
