Since 1988 Pamela's Products have created a new standard in wheat- free and gluten-free foods. They've combined the finest all natural ingredients for superior taste and texture.
Thanks to products like Pamela's, gluten free foods are good foods. Ten years ago GF foods were dry, tasteless and nearly unbearable to eat. Ten years ago my Mother had to suddenly go gluten free with my brother. She started buying GF from the health food stores, but back then it was so bad she knew it would never work. So out of necessity.
That is what Pamela's did too. Pamela's Grandparents started one of the first health food stores (and bakery) in San Francisco. Growing up in the Health Food Industry, she was given the “weird” food to take to school by way of heavy, nutty breads and small, dry health food cookies or with carob instead of chocolate. She suggested making the wheat-free and gluten-free cookies taste better, but I was told that “the allergy people were fine and happy to have something”. Back then the Health Food Industry was much less interested in taste. Health food was known to be dry, hard, and crumbly but always nutritious.
In 1988, after college she left the family business to start her own independent company founded on the premise that wheat-free and gluten-free foods can taste great and that everyone should have food delicious enough to celebrate. My company, Pamela’s Products, continues to lead the industry with award winning decadent and delicious gluten-free foods.
I will never forget last year when I served only gluten-free cupcakes at my son's birthday party. My oldest brother told me I could have made them myself and saved a lot of money!!! He thought they looked and tasted like the good bakery cupcakes! Loved it - no one knew :)
There are so many choices at Pamela's - Traditional Cookies , Organic Cookies , Simplebites Mini,Baking MixesCheesecakes & Cakes. Everything I've tried is good and I was able to serve it to my whole family, not just Julien who is gluten free.
Thank you Pamela!!! For making our lives so much easier.
