Product Review: Shabtai Gourmet

The wonderful people at Shabtai Gourmet sent me some complimentary samples a few weeks back.  They really have quite the product line.  Shabtai Gourment is run by Shabtai!  He learned the art of baking from his father over 30 years ago & has been baking ever since.  All of the ingredients that pass through their doors are Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Lactose-Free, Soy-Free, and Dairy-Free. They are certified Kosher for Passover and Kosher Parve – otherwise known as Dairy-Free by the OK Kosher Supervision.

We received 7 different products from Shabtai Gourmet & have sampled 5 of them so far.  I will list them below.

Smples

Rainbow Cookies

Italian Tricolor Rainbow Squares. Light sponge layers, separated by raspberry jam, and covered in dark chocolate. Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Lactose-Free, Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, Corn-Free & Peanut-Free! These cookies are my favorite product that Shabtai sent.  Jon agreed, as did Lindsey.  Very original and great texture.

Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Semi Sweet Chocolate Chip Morsels loaded into these cookies, make your mouth melt when you pop them in. Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Lactose-Free, Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, Corn-Free & Peanut-Free! I am going to be honest here – I did not care for these cookies at all.  Jon & Lindsey felt the same way.

Brownie Bites

These Bite Sized Brownies are perfect to pop in your mouth when your on the go. Warm them up and serve them with peanut butter or whip creme! Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Lactose-Free, Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, Corn-Free & Peanut-Free! May be frozen upon delivery. Another hit here!  These were really good & what a unique way to package a brownie.  Looks like a mini-cupcake, but taste & texture of a brownie.  Thumbs up!

Meltaways Cookies

These square cookies remind me a lot of Pecan Sandies, both in taste & texture.  I liked these much better than the Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Ladyfingers

A light thin and crispy cookie. Perfect for making your own sandwich cookies, using your favorite jams or chocolates! Also great for making a Gluten-Free Tiramisu dessert – an Italian Favorite! Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Lactose-Free, Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, Corn-Free & Peanut-Free!  Jon, Lindesy & I all liked these cookies.  I had never had one before going gluten-free, so I have nothing to compare it to.  I love the lightness!

Raspberry Roll

Thin sponge layers rolled up in raspberry jam, and sprinkled with coconut. Perfect for all year round and during the holidays too! Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Lactose-Free, Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, Corn-Free & Peanut-Free! May be frozen upon delivery.  I have yet to try this – I put it in my freezer where it is calling my name!  LOL!

Brownies

This Super Moist Gluten-Free Brownie is loaded with fudge and lots of love. Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Lactose-Free, Soy-Free Dairy-Free, Corn-Free & Peanut-Free! May be frozen upon delivery for storage!  These babies are in the freezer keeping the Raspberry Roll company.  Can’t wait to try them!

Shabtai offers 8 other products that I haven’t listed here, including what seems to be something very close to a Ding Dong or Ho Ho.  Remember those?  You can see if Shabtai Gourmet Products are sold near you by going here.  If not, no worries, Shabtai offers free shipping on all orders shipped in the continental US.

  • I'm so glad you reviewed these products! I've been eyeballing them for a while now but haven't been able to bring myself to buy them. I was afraid they would be a waste of money as is a lot of gluten free items. Thanks to you i'm going to pick some up next time I'm at the store! Well, except the chocolate chip cookies, lol!

    I will look for those rainbow cookies! I remember them from my gluten filled childhood and never imagined that I would taste them again!

  • @Heather – Let me know how you like them!

    @Kim – Wow…I have never even seen them before I got them from Shabtai. They were very, very good.

  • I also had some samples sent to me and reviewed them on celiac-disease.com. Like you I did not care for the chocolate chip at all, and ironically, it was my gluten-eating husband and daughter that ate them all up, I couldn't even finish one. I did like the rainbow cake bites though. I still have the 7-layer cake and lady fingers waiting in the freezer. I think I will do a tiramisu with the lady fingers. I also felt like many of the items had a certain flavor to them, and the one common ingredient I found was apricot kernel, so maybe that was it?

  • Anne,

    Jon mentioned that about the rainbow cookies & one of the other items, but I didn't think much of it until you just mentioned it.

    I am interested to see how you like the layer cake. :)

    I have tried several products from this company, and found them mostly too sweet for my taste; that being said, they have a wonderful array of products. I liked the cake rolls and the cookies, but it took a long time to get through them, because they are so sweet! If you have a sweet tooth, you will definitely like these products. They store well in the freezer. I disliked the tricolor cookies and thought they had an overpowering almond taste, and I didn't like the texture.

  • This is a really nice post. thanks for sharing

  • The more wonderful gluten-free products become available, the easier it becomes to follow a gluten-free diet. A gluten-free diet is important for many health conditions, such as celiac disease and autism.

    Thank you for posting this.
