GAGA For Gluten-Free
GAGA For Gluten-Free makes all natural, allergen-friendly, totally delicious cookies that are now vegan, too! Their bakery is a dedicated gluten-free (to eliminate cross-contamination), peanut-free, tree-nut free, kosher facility. They take pride in testing to 5 parts per million (ppm) of glutenous property or less – the most stringent testing on the market. The industry standard is 20 p.p.m.
Using evaporated cane juice, an unrefined sugar, they keep their cookies low in sugar with only 2 grams per cookie! And because they don’t mask their ingredients with a lot of sugar you can actually taste each ingredient!
Finding a vegan shortbread cookie is like finding the holy grail!

Sweetsmith candy co.
Sweetsmith Candy Co. was founded by Dannah Davies in the summer of 2012. With money saved for school that she earned from paper routes, and jobs growing up, she began cooking her candy at home and selling at a local farmer’s market once a week. It didn’t take long for her to notice the need for allergen-friendly treats; she decided to take the opportunity to both pursue her passion for experimental cooking and provide the much-needed reprieve from the uninspiring sweets available to those with wheat, soy, dairy and egg sensitivities.
Tara, the founder of SmartSweets, started SmartSweets after her love affair with candy turned into an unhealthy relationship with food. She experienced the negative effects sugar has on our health. After spending months recipe testing in her kitchen with a gummy bear mold from Amazon, she innovated the first candy you can feel good about. At SmartSweets, they’re tackling one of the largest and most concerning problems hidden in our everyday foods – sugar!
