Kudos to Ener-G Foods!

I just had a great customer experience and wanted to share it with those who may benefit. Among other foods, my daughter is allergic to wheat and tree nuts. Somedays it feels so overwhelming to me that I cry. I'm thinking about her starting kindergarten in a few weeks and I just want to be able to make her a sandwich for lunch! The one wheat-free bread that she actually likes recently changed their packaging to include "processed on the same equipment as tree nuts." Get the tissue box!

Ener-G foods sells a wide variety of gluten, wheat and dairy-free products. I've ordered crackers from them in the past, which are actually pretty good. Even my daughters who aren't allergic to wheat ask for them. I called for their help, still trying to make that sandwich! The woman in customer service was awesome! She not only recommended several breads that most kids like, she offered to ship me samples for free. No way!

The samples came to the house today. I now have four neatly packaged possibilties on which to make sanwiches! I know I can't give them to Kristine all at once, but the wait is killing me! I'm so anxious to find out which one she likes. There's still time to order a loaf before school starts! : )

For anyone looking for wheat-free products, I strongly recommend Ener-G Foods. They are good at labeling other allergens as well, in case you have to pay attention to multiple food allergies like me.

I hope this helps all of you who may be searching for that perfect sandwich!
