Gluten-Free in Manhattan: Savory Snack Bar
On this rainy afternoon, I ended up downstairs at the new Fairway on 86th Street. My eyes landed on the freebie samples that they were offering - about to pass the table, I casually asked if the bars were gluten-free? To my belly's delight, the response was in the affirmative! "It's gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free," said Amotz, one of the Co-Founders of Sheffa Foods.
WOW! C'est pour moi. :)
The snack bars are really quite a treat - I like their crispy, crunchy texture and they remind of the Indian snacks, but a much healthier version. Amoz directed me to their "Zesty Snack Mix." It was lunch time and I could have easily purchased everything I saw. I did pick up the Zesty Snack Mix and am happily snacking on it while I type. It's really delish and a great new mix to serve to your guests this holiday season. You could add chopped red onions, a tablespoon of chopped cilantro and some tamarind chutney to make it a gluten-free Bhel Puri.
