    Garbo Toast Bread: For Those About to Toast, Garbo Salutes You!

    Celiac.com 07/30/2007 - Mmmmm...Toast. The smell of toast filling the room in the morning.

    A perfectly toasted piece of white bread transformed to a perfectly golden brown at the center and at the edges, an aroma packed with memories, evoking deep sighs and wistful smiles.

    Toast is the perfect comfort food. It's also something I've practically given up on bread since I became gluten-free. So, when my Garbo gluten free, dairy free Toast bread arrived, I tried not to get too excited. I'd never tried it and was taking a stab at joy.

    Most of the breads I've tried required toasting first to be anywhere near palatable, and even then, the ones I've tried have been too dense, too chewy, way too sticky, and distinctly lacking in flavor. Most of all, I've yet to find one that gives off the memory-rich aroma of freshly toasted white bread.

    Until now. Garbo Toast Bread has officially rocked my world! Gluten-Free and dairy-free, Garbo Toast bread brings the joy of toast back to the world of the gluten-free diet.

    gfd_garbo_toastbread.jpgFirst, I tried it straight from the toaster and slathered with butter. It was perfectly chewy, and not at all sticky like so many gluten-free breads I've tried and given up on. If I hadn't known it was gluten-free, I would have had to double check. It looked and smelled and tasted like some kind of exotic European white bread.

    Later on, I experimented. Since I still eat dairy, I toasted a slice andtried it with a soft-boiled egg! I was in heaven.For lunch I toasted two slices,buttered them, then added a slice of cheese. I then grilled it gently overa medium heat for the most wonderful toasty, gluten free grilled cheesesandwich. The next morning I had a slice with butter and my favorite jam.More heaven. I went through my first bag of Garbo Toast bread in two days!I promptly ordered not one, not two, but four more loaves!

    With their gluten free, dairy free Toast bread, Garbo has brought the joy of toast...warm, aromatic, perfectly golden, perfectly chewy, perfectly yummy toast back to my previously untoasty gluten-free life.

    For those us whose lives are dark without toast, and only a bit brighter with our previous toast choices, we salute Garbo!

    For those about to toast, Garbo salutes you!
