The world’s most coveted blind-tasted food awards, Great Taste, has just released the Great Taste stars of 2015, and Honest Gluten-Free Bakery, of Roscommon town, is amongst the producers celebrating.
Its Gluten-Free Almond Cantucci is now able to proudly carry the little gold and black Great Taste logo.
Judges said it had “a nice artisanal appearance, with clear vanilla on the nose, a crisp texture and not too sweet” and awarded it 1 Gold Star.
“We always thought Cantucci was a good product,” says Mark Molloy, of Honest Gluten Free Bakery. “Now we know it’s a GREAT product. We are all delighted with our Great Taste Award.”
Judged by over 400 of the most demanding palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs, producers and a host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers.
When a product wears a Great Taste label, it carries a badge of honour but more importantly, the Great Taste logo is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product.
Hundreds of judges have worked tirelessly to discover the very best, through hours and hours of blind-tasting a total of 10,000 different foods and drinks.
