"I was visiting my daughter in Apple Valley and since I must eat Gluten Free due to a severe case of Celiac Disease. She works in downtown Minneapolis and rides the bus most of the time. She had mentioned to a seat mate one day that her mother was coming to visit and had to have gluten free food. He told her about this place called "Bittersweet" and said they come there to get food when his sister-in-law comes to visit because she must have gluten free food. When I walked in your doors it was a raw, cloudy, rainy Saturday and your bakery smelled like Heaven to me. I could breathe deeply and not worry about cross-contamination like other bakeries. I have been eating totally gluten free for almost 4 years and I am 72 years old. I asked, "Is everything in here gluten free?" The gentleman who had come out to greet us answered "Yes" and I just looked at him as said "I love you!" He gave us a sample of the peanut butter cookies and I could only stand there and savor each tiny bite at a time. I wanted to make it last as long as possible it was so delicious! I bought peanut butter cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, and a loaf of your yeast bread with sunflower seeds and rosemary bread sticks.
We got a few things that day and wished we had gotten more so the next week on Saturday before my flight home on Sunday we came back to Bittersweet so I could get things I could eat as I traveled because airports DO NOT offer gluten free anything as I could find. I got a small loaf of pumpkin bread, a piece of the coffee cake, lemon zinger cookies and, of course, several of those wonderful peanut butter cookies. I am getting ready to place an order and will call tomorrow to do so but I just wanted you to know what a wonderful treat it was to find you and your delicious food! Thank you for doing a wonderful job of giving folks like me, who are not fortunate enough to live near you. I live in Johnson City, TN and have also shared your website with my sister in Lexington, NC and sister-in-law in Kinston, AL who will also be placing orders."
