(Apologies to Hostess for using the term Ho-Ho, but that is the only way to describe what I’m about to share with you!)
As a kid, Ho-Ho’s were my favorite. Forget Twinkies or Zingers or the cupcakes – Ho-Ho’s was it for me. The silver foil (remember when they came wrapped in aluminum foil like paper, and you could smooth it all the way out?) wrapping held a yummy cake and creme treat. Then, you’d try ever so slowly to unroll the Ho-Ho, trying not to break the cake! Or you could just bite right into it!
Well, if you thought those days of eating Ho-Ho’s are gone since you’re now gluten free, I have great news for you. Shabtai Gourmet makes an amazing product called Yiddles. Yiddles are this great devils food chocolate sponge cake with white creme inside, all rolled up and covered in dark chocolate. See – a gluten free Ho-Ho! Shabtai Gourmet sent me two compimentary boxes of these to sample and I had to put one away in the freezer after the first day, as the other box was close to being gone. They are that good!
Here’s what I love about Shabtai Gourmet, from their website:
Shabtai Gourmet is a unique Gluten Free Bakery line specializing in Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Soy Free, Casein Free, Peanut Free & Dairy Free Cakes and Cookies. Shabtai has brought a fresh and exciting new approach to allergen free baking. Shabtai and his family owned bakery has grown over the years, yet has never lost its old world out of this world taste.
Shabtai Gourmet has a variety of gluten free baked goods, so it’s not one company just producing one great item for us, they are producing LOTS! Here’s a quick link to their gluten free goods. If you’re looking for retailers that carry their products, click here.
I highly recommend their products and their company.
Gluten free ho-hos are back!
