Free. Getting something, without paying the price. That is exactly what Sweet Freedom Bakery is able to offer the growing number of sweet tooth’s out there with an allergy that had previously prevented them from satisfying their cravings, without paying the biggest price of all; damage to their health. But this is no ordinary allergy free bakery. Sweet Freedom is the only bakery of its kind that makes all of their products gluten free, vegan, dairy free, egg free, soy free, corn free, peanut free, refined sugar free, and kosher! Phew! Now what IS in their baked goods you ask? The Sweet Freedom team has come up with delicious goodies using all kinds of unique ingredients including; garbanzo flour, rice flour, coconut sugar, and agave.
Now, I know what you are thinking, and I can admit that I was ready write a critical review, stating that they nowhere near as good as their processed counterparts! However, I was blown away by just how tasty the wonderful selection of temptations were. Not only would I never have guessed that they were not made of the usual suspects, but they also were able to pack an extra nutritional punch of higher fiber (something we all need more of in our diets), and high protein to fill you up quicker, meaning you are less likely to overeat! Hurrah!
I was able to test out a variety of treats; each with their own charm, to remind me that they could take on any regular delight. My favorite of the day could definitely match up to any of my regular favorites! The Salted Caramel Cupcake was absolutely divine. The name makes you gush, the look makes your mouth water, and the oozing of the caramel that occurs when your fork dives in makes your taste buds tingle with delight. You to slip into a world of bliss as the rich, chocolate taste is politely interrupted by the creamy, vanilla frosting. It is then that you take a trip to heaven as the salted caramel completes the whirlwind of contrasting sweet flavors to satisfy any sweet tooth, allergy or not. That beautiful gooey center adds another level to this cupcake to make sure it pleases all your sweet desires.
Sweet Freedom Bakery has not only provided food allergy sufferers with many delectable treats, including French toast cupcakes, Samoa/Thin Mint themed donuts and pumpkin cookie sandwiches, but they have developed them so well, that even the pickiest sweet tooth would have difficultly detecting that they are free of so many usual ingredients.
The Sweet Freedom Bakery team has managed to create the perfect balance between delicious and good for everyone. In a world filled with allergies and diet restrictions, the sweet world needs more creative bakers to bring joy to those who usually are so limited in choices. Luckily for Philadelphia, we have the first team of very considerate sweet tooth’s who are willing to deliver, not just for those with allergies, or those wanting to remove the gunk from their diets, but for anyone wanting a sweet treat.
Go on, try it, I bet your sweet tooth will not be able to tell the difference, and even if it can, it will be too high on a cloud of happiness to remember what it was meant to be comparing!
