On my last visit back East I discovered the best gluten-free, vegan bread I have ever had. Wegmans are the only brick and mortar stores that sell it, and Wegmans are only found on the East coast. This bread looks, bends, compresses, resumes its original shape and fails to fall apart just like ordinary bread.

 

Until now you could divide gluten free bread into two groups, the ones that use egg whites to replace the sticky wheat gluten, and the ones that are vegan. Previously vegan GF bread was a little like fine sandpaper, with an abrasive quality, it tears and breaks apart readily and it is very dense because without gluten fewer air bubbles are trapped. 

 

It all happened like this. My daughter and I are very close, we speak on the phone several times a week if not daily. I was telling her how much I love Bloomfield Farms GF bread. They sell it at Wegmans, she works at Wegmans.  She is the local expert for Wegman's on GF and other special diet foods. There are no Wegmans stores on the west coast.  The bread is not sold anywhere in California.

I was bemoaning the fact that the only online source for this bread is a horrible site called Gluten Free Mall.  High prices, slow service and exorbitant shipping charges are the nicest things about the Gluten Free Mall. The outdated website is no extra charge.

 

Bloomfield Farms bread is sold frozen, the Gluten Free Mall will only ship it in a package with dry ice. The dry ice shipping charge is $69.95. So for one $6 loaf of bread the cost would be $75.95.  Not sure if tax is added because I'm not going to be buying from them.

My daughter asked me how much GFM charge for this shipping, she laughed when I told her. She said she could ship it to me for a lot less, so I said I could pay you more than it costs.

And so it was that yesterday, on the very same day my largest tomato of the year turned ripe, two loaves of Bloomfield Farms GF bread appeared in our mailbox.  And thus tomato sandwich season begins.

Color me happy.

Oh boy, enjoy your tomato samwitch.  Can't believe how much they would have charged you for shipping a loaf of bread. [smilie=geek.gif]   how fortunate your daughter works for the company.

I have no idea why some of these businesses charge such outrageous shipping fees, & expect people to pay them! I shop very much depending on what the fees are & will pass up many an item if they are beyond what I think is reasonable.

Glad you got your bread at a reasonable rate, & your tomato sounds delicious!
