December seems to be a time of indulgence—especially when it comes to dessert. Baked goods in the break room, cookies and egg nog at holiday parties, candy from your Secret Santa. Temptation around every corner. Thankfully with Alter Eco and ginnybakes, you can indulge without the chemicals found in most other store-bought goodies.
Alter Eco uses only the best ingredients (organic, non-GMO, gluten-free and fair trade) in their treats. I was lucky enough to try some Salted Caramel truffles. They were amazing. I’m a bit of a chocolate snob. Hershey is not going to cut it. My kids’ Halloween candy can sit in the cabinet for months, but leave me with a bag of Alter Eco truffles and I am not to be trusted. These truffles are so smooth with a rich flavor. Crafted with signature Ecuadorian cacao, nutrient-rich coconut oil, and speckled with French sea salt, each truffle is packaged in a compostable wrapper.
Ginnybakes cookies are gluten-free, organic, non-GMO and kosher—and they taste great, too! I tried the oatmeal chocolate chip bliss minis. The packaging made them an easy treat for on-the-go. I shared some of these cookies with my older kids and they both loved them. . I also shared some with a friend who eats strictly gluten-free and she said they are the best gluten-free cookie she has had. She said the texture was the closest to a regular cookie of any gluten-free cookie she has tried. Ginnybakes passion is to create outrageously delicious and nutritious treats for everyone to enjoy.
I love having a trusted go-to brand that I can serve at parties and know that everyone can enjoy a great treat–and now I’ve found two. These treats would be great for setting out at a holiday gathering or topping off someone’s stocking.
