I first tried HomeFree Cookies at the GFAF festival in San Francisco last year and boy was I hooked! I got to try the three different variety of cookies pictured to your left the mini chocolate chip, the mini double chocolate, and the mini vanilla cookies. They are all a crunchy cookie and are actually quite tasty. I'm usually not a fan of crunchy cookies, but I really enjoyed these. What's awesome about this company is they use to have some wheat in there facility in the form of barley, but in the last year they have went completely gluten free. On their website the statement about there kitchen states...
We prepare all HomeFree products with great care in our own baking facility. From kitchen design, to staffing, to ingredients, HomeFree treats are made with allergy safety in mind. Our kitchen appliances and other materials are new, ensuring no prior usage with food allergens. Our delivery area is separate from the kitchen, allowing us to wipe down all ingredient deliveries. And our well-trained staff members wear HomeFree clothing and shoes to avoid carrying in allergen traces.
No peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, wheat or dairy, soy (except lecithin), fish, shell fish, or sesame are permitted in our facility for any reason at any time. The only soy in our facility and some of our products is soy lecithin, which is tolerated by most (but not all) people with soy allergies. Our kitchen is dedicated gluten free as well.
Not only do we keep allergens and gluten out of our own facility, but also we are careful about where our ingredients come from, including requiring allergen and gluten documentation from every ingredient supplier. And we go further. We conduct our own allergen testing for peanut, almond, egg, and milk proteins on our incoming ingredient batches. Additionally, we randomly test our cookies for these allergens and for gluten.
We hope you will be as comfortable eating from our kitchen as you are from your own. "
I really enjoy these cookies and love how upfront they are about their kitchen. I've never seen their soft oatmeal cookies in store, but I just saw them on their website. Hopefully I can find those and give them a try one of these days, because I love oatmeal cookies!
