My wonderful friend was kind enough to surprise me recently with a box of different desserts that, to my surprise, were safe for me to eat. She explained to me how she came across a bakery in St. Catharines called Edible Options, and how everything they create is 100% gluten-free, but further can be made Vegan, Paleo, Raw, Corn-free, Soy-free, Wheat-Free, Dairy-Free, or Sugar-Free, depending on allergies, intolerances, or preference.
I have not yet been to Edible Options myself, but after tasting these sweet treats my friend got for me, I will definitely be visiting in the near future to pick up some more. I tried their chocolate chip cookie, a slice of cheesecake (I think it was raspberry but I am not positive), a coconut-chocolate-peanut butter bar, and a shortbread cookie sandwich with a fruit pureé in the centre.
I seriously cannot stress enough how absolutely phenomenal these desserts were. The entire time I was eating them, I was worried that there had been some sort of mistake and that the desserts did, in fact, contain gluten, dairy, and egg, because they were that delicious. I am ecstatic to report that I had absolutely no digestive issues after consuming the treats, and I am highly anticipating visiting the bakery myself to see what other sorts of divine creations they offer.
Edible Options is open Monday through Saturday from 10-6 and Sunday’s from 11-4. They are located at 300 E Fourth Avenue in St. Catharines, and they have a Facebook page if you’re interested in checking out their services.
Edible Options caters towards individuals with dietary needs, but I assure you that you would never know that their items are free of common allergens. If you have a sweet tooth of any sort, this place is for you, and I will definitely update you all when I visit the bakery myself with new goodies.
