“I found your garlic bread at Wegmans for the first time over the holidays, and it was so much more delicious than I assumed it would be! I’m so happy my mom and 11 year old daughter (both with celiac disease) can have garlic bread again. I made a special trip today so my daughter could have it for dinner tonight. Can’t wait to try more of your products. Makers of delicious gluten-free food (which there are not enough of) do more than sell a product – they sell happiness to parents of kids with celiac disease!”

Thanksgiving Review with Gillian’s Foods Home-Style Stuffing

Thank you to Jessica Prado Hanson for another awesome, honest review. This time she had our stuffing, croutons, and pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving and share with her family. See how much her dad enjoyed the meal.

Customer in NJ

“Thank you for making such delicious garlic bread! We have found that the hardest part about having celiac is finding good bread. Your garlic bread is perfect. We can’t wait to try your other breads.” – See what this customer is talking about! Can’t find it where you get your other Gillian’s Foods products? Provide the store manager with this sheet.

“I just wanted to say thank you for making a product that is gluten free and dye free! I think I may have tried you cupcakes at the gluten free expo and I was so excited when I saw them in our new market basket! I have a child with celiac and a child with a diagnosed sensory disorder which is why we try to avoid dye! Your cupcakes are amazing and thanks again for making a great product!”

Robin B.

Another great review! “We tried your rolls for the first time at Not Your Average Joes in Norwell. We loved them but we couldn’t find them anywhere.  We didn’t realize you have a web site you can buy them too.  They are fabulous!!  A true game changer in our house where three out of four are gluten free.  You guys need to be everywhere- anytime I come across bad bread at a restaurant I will be telling them about your product. Keep up the great work!  I also love the story how this roll was created – a dad making it for the love of a daughter – well that is why it is so good!! “

Michael S.

“Oh, the cupcakes… I wanted to drop you a line regarding your GF Cupcakes. My local Market Basket now carries the Vanilla cupcakes. I had to try them to see if they were a better alternative to other GF baked desserts, which tend to be on the dry side. We have a winner !!! Your cupcakes are as moist as any I’ve ever had and the frosting is spot on.

Thank you, thank you, thank you …”

Hello – I just bought a package of your pie shells at Whole Foods in Virginia Beach, VA. I made a pumpkin pie (my first ever!). The crust is fabulous. Thank you for this wonderful gluten free product and NO sugar.That is a hard combination to find. I hope Whole Foods will carry more of your products.- P.G.

Have to tell you, swapped out the sausage for andouille sausage, added mushrooms, red pepper & some thyme, dropped the butter to 2 tbs & added a couple cups of cooked brown rice. I finally feel like I’m eating real food again after a multi food allergy diagnosis in my late 30’s following a medically complicated pregnancy. This tastes just like the foods I’ve been missing, texture is a huge problem for me gluten-free & your products hit the mark, thank you from a customer having a Happy Thanksgiving!
