Annie’s Organic Cinnamon Rolls Review
A while back, we posted Immaculate Organic Crescent Cinnamon Rolls & Chocolate Honey Rolls. However, after finding their new organic line, I was out and about one day, and found these! Guess where??? Target! Interestingly, this isn’t at Whole Foods, or the Co-Ops I’ve been to. Although Immaculate has switched over to organic, I still had to give these a go. Remember, not everyone in the house is allergic to wheat. As usual, we weren’t paid for this review, or offered any free product.

Organic Cinnamon Rolls & Dark Chocolate Honey Crescent Rolls
Warning: Contains Wheat. Phew. Now that we have that out of the way, it’s story time. Did you know there are several people in the house that can have wheat? I feel bad for them sometimes because of the process of how I do things, they “miss out” on foods they would like to have, such as cinnamon rolls. I try to tell myself they’re only missing sugar and fat, so it’s not a big deal… but it is. I say that as a reminder for those of you in a mixed allergen household, every so often, if it’s safe, allow everyone to have a treat that’s OK for them. In the case of this snack, mister low/no sugar had to have the smallest one (which I made for him). Kid Two had an ice cream treat instead. For as hard as you will strive to make everyone happy on the same diet, let’s be honest, it’s a tall order.
With that in mind, it’s not very often that I buy crescent rolls anymore, as I haven’t been able to find something similar for our kid that’s allergic to wheat. Well, that and I haven’t mastered using yeast yet. I’m also not in the business of torturing children, and making them watch someone else eat something they can’t have. Let’s be honest, a lot of people would be willing to risk an allergic reaction for delicious cinnamon rolls.
Yet, with all of that, there’s one even BIGGER reason I bought these. They’re organic now!!! Previously, this brand was an all natural brand. Now, it’s officially organic, and that gives me a lot of hope for using them for those that can have wheat, especially Kid Three who has to avoid additives, etc. I will not however give up on trying to make yeast work for us. I think it would be a great addition to the things we make.

I get the feeling these are made in a shared facility because it says “may contain traces of milk” on the label. If you have a dairy allergy, please contact the company first so you can assess if these are safe for you. Read More
Cupcakes and Cinnamon Rolls
Since I’m the type that tries to keep things honest and upfront, I want to take another moment so share some things that didn’t turn out so well. The items are in the try again pile.
I’ve been trying to perfect white cake, and The Papa insists that it’s the perfect corn free cornbread. These are some variations that I tried to make, in an effort to reduce the corn bread taste. It didn’t work. I’m still kind of upset about this. It’s white cake… white cake (that looks yellow). Read More
