The Gluten-Free, Allergy-Friendly Cookie that Could – and Did!

Teal Pumpkin Allergy ProjectIt’s a ‘Spooky Time’ for parents of gluten-free and/or allergic kids as they stare down another Halloween, hoping their children will survive unscathed by hives, gastric distress, or worse, anaphylaxis. It is what horror movies are made of – but id does not have to be that way. Here in Victoria, BC on Vancouver Island, we have options and they start with the letter ‘B’ for Benjamin’s Bites!

Made in a dedicated facility and free of gluten peanuts, eggs, dairy, tree nuts, sesame seeds, mustard, sulfites, fish and shellfish! All that’s left is deliciousness! Get some today for your extra-special gobbler! Where to purchase.

Shoppers on Vancouver Island are very familiar with dedicated mom, Debbie Esposito and her determination to create a cookie that her food-sensitive toddler Benjamin could enjoy.
Many batches of cookies later, Benjamin’s Bites‘ was born, free of the top allergens:  gluten, eggs, soy, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame seeds or sulphites. Benjamin’s has become the go-to cookie for anyone who loves a delicious treat!  In 2013, Benjamin’s Sunbutter, Chocolate Chip and Double Dark Chocolate Benjamin’s Bites became available in Victoria and across Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

When Benjamin’s Bites undertook Gluten-Free Certification,  the company became a proud sponsor of the Canadian Celiac Association Gluten-Free Living Classes in Victoria, British Columbia. Children and parents alike delighted in learning that gluten-free could taste this great!

Pick BC First

In the summer of 2015, Benjamin’s Bites was invited to partner in  Thrifty Foods’ Pick BC First Campaign! Soon enough, we were able to watch Debbie and The Benjamin himself on TV here and here, hear about them on local radio and see giant sized posters of them at Thrifty Foods stores everywhere.
