Product Review: Mom's Place Gluten Free Soft Pretzel Mix and more...
Mom's Place Gluten Free sent me some products to sample and review as part of the upcoming Nourished Festival. I also participated in a blogger event a few weeks ago where a member of Mom's Place Gluten Free answered our questions. During this session I also learned that they had sent custom samples to each participant based on each of our unique dietary restrictions, and that their web site has an Allergen Filter so you can easily find the products that you can consume - so from the get-go I was impressed with this business. Before I go into a long narrative let me summarize to say these products are the real deal. Delicious, high quality, wow.
I don't recall where I first heard about Mom's Place Gluten Free but in 2019 I must have stumbled upon them while reading an article about disaster preparedness. As we have earthquakes out here in Cali, I've been planning to put some emergency food in our shed but just hadn't gotten around to it. Mom's Place Gluten Free advertised a disaster preparedness food pack which included a large variety of products, none of which I had ever tasted. I then emailed them asking about whether I'd be able to prepare most of the products using a camp stove or gas grill assuming I lost power and gas or my house was inhabitable post-earthquake. They answered my email within a few hours explaining how their kit does have plenty of products I can prepare in the backyard but that they viewed the need as more about if there was a situation where I could not get access to gluten free products in particular due to some disaster. That sounded interesting but I figured I'd never really run into that out here and I was worried about investing so much money in products I had never tried- what if they were terrible?
Fast forward about 7 months later and we were in Covid lockdown, I was afraid to go to the store, and when I did, found most of the time the products I wanted were out of stock. Yet I had forgotten about the email exchange I had with Mom's Place Gluten Free - I wish I had remembered and had that pack in the shed.
Then earlier this month, I received a sample pack from Mom's Place Gluten Free in preparation for the Nourished Festival. They sent their Soft Pretzels with Sea Salt mix, Cream of Chicken Soup mix, French Onion Soup Mix, and Red Licorice.
