Responding to customer requests, all Wegmans Food Markets stores now carry fresh gluten-free brownies, chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodles and cupcakes.
“We’re very proud of the work that has gone into these new bakery items,” Mike Gross, category merchant for bakery at the Rochester, N.Y.-based chain, said in a press release. “Customers have been telling us for some time how much it would mean to be able to pick up a delicious, gluten-free dessert when there’s no time to bake at home, and we believe these will get a big thumbs up for taste!”
Though Wegmans’ chefs created the recipes for the treats, bakery partner Get Fresh Bakehouse, Fairfield, N.J., supplies the gluten-free products to the retailer’s 85 stores. The baked goods are made in a dedicated gluten-free facility.
Wegmans is working on developing gluten-free breads and cakes.
