Gluten-Free Expo Comes to Toronto

Today, I had the pleasure of visiting the Gluten-Free Expo in Toronto, with over 100 vendors both sampling and selling their products. GF Expo TorontoHere are some of the highlights from my visit:

  • Stocking up on Sweets From The Earth peppermint nanaimo bars (see My Favourite GF Things)
  • Sampling Glutino‘s new Rosemary & Olive Oil snack crackers (absolutely delicious!)
  • Indulging in chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! Between dark chocolate-covered marshmallows at Charlinda Belgian Chocolates (representing Stouffville!), dark Fair Trade bars at Zazubean Organic Chocolate (with fun names like ‘lunatic’ and ‘flirt’), and chocolate surprise cupcakes at Molly B’s, the event was definitely a GF chocolate-lover’s dream
  • Taking advantage of El Peto‘s pie crust offer for my Thanksgiving apple pie attempt (stay tuned for the post!)
  • Chatting at the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Centre booth about next year’s ‘Celiac Disease Symposium’ in Chicago (September 22-25, 2013)
  • Checking out some of the other vendors: Bubbie’s Biscotti, Cocomira, DiGusto Bakery, Kinnikinnick, Pamela’s, PatsyPie, Udi’s, and many more…

Sadly, I was not able to get to some of the booths, like Frankie’s Ristorante and Mmm…Crepealicious, because of the line-ups, but it just goes to show you how popular this event was. Hopefully next year, the organizers will consider a larger venue and/or extending the one-day event to multiple days. Either way, I look forward to future events…
