TeLu Biscotti (and Gluten Free!) Review and Giveaway??

Try TeLu's delicious made-to-order biscotti. Using only the freshest ingredients TeLu uses unique flavor combinations to create a wonderfully delicious baked treat. We are lucky to be located in the beautiful Hudson Valley in New York State where there is an abundance of local farm products that are used in our biscotti. TeLu's family recipe would be a great accompaniment to your afternoon coffee or tea or just for a wonderful snack. Biscotti makes a wonderful gift as well for that special someone. All TeLu's many flavors can be made GLUTEN FREE as well!

I recently received two packages of biscotti to review from the Etsy shop TeLu when the packages arrived I was extremely happy because one of them was gluten-free. Since my son and my mother are both gluten-free this was really important to me. My mother has been gluten-free for as long as I can remember she has had celiac since before it was popular to have celiac.My mother has tried nearly every gluten-free product on the market.

When I gave her the biscotti to try she took one bite and was very happy, my mother is very cautious about gluten in her food because if she eats anything with even a hint of wheat or gluten she gets a severe stomach ache. The biscotti that was gluten-free was very soft and crumbly sort of like shortcake or shortbread the flavor was very mild, the one that she tried was a cherry walnut, but she hs several Gluten Free flavors to chose from including:

Pecan Caramel

White Chocolate Hazelnut

Almond

Gingerbread

Double Chocolate

Cherry Almond

Cranberry Walnut

Espresso Chip

Mixed Fruit

Tropical

I have to say that I am not a huge biscotti fan because I don't like to dip things in coffee. I have eaten biscotti, but I am very particular about what kind I eat because it's very crunchy if you do not dip it. Casey and I tried the biscotti together and upon taking a first bite of the double chocolate we both looked at each other and said "oh my god this is so GOOD!"

The regular biscotti had a very nice texture to it it was crumbly and crunchy but not overly crunchy like some biscotti that it didn't need to be dipped in coffee it was even soft enough for a four-year-old to eat and enjoy. Casey and I both tried the other flavors and we both agreed that the double chocolate was the best. I would definitely recommend this biscotti for anyone who likes sweets but nothing overly sweet I am not a big fan of sugar but this is perfect.

TeLu has generously offered to giveaway a package of her biscotti to one of my readers. Contest is open to US residents, please enter using the raffle copter form below giveaway ends 7/27/12 good luck

  13. It's between gingerbread and espresso chip, but I'd say gingerbread has to be the winner.
