Jordyn Gudeman feels your pain. She had her first anaphylactic reaction to tree nuts at four years old, and due to improper and lax labelling of foods, the only real way to keep herself protected was to stick almost exclusively to homemade foods.
In an effort to increase her culinary options, Jordyn took an interest in baking. It was safe, it was fun, and the results were delicious.
As nut allergies became more prevalent and food packaging grew more responsible and more meticulous, Jordyn finally found she had more choices, but most of the allergen-friendly options weren’t exactly appealing. The foods were dry and flavorless. After years of making tree-nut-free baked goods beloved by everyone, Jordyn didn’t understand why people with tree-nut allergies were relegated to such bland and boring foods. She wondered why people with only nut allergies couldn’t enjoy a cookie that is just nut-free and also great tasting?
That question is what launched Eddie G’s cookies. As simple as it sounds, nuts do not have to be present in cookies to make them taste good, but no one else seemed to be making only tree-nut free foods. Where were the companies leaving in the other delicious ingredients, while ensuring that people with that one allergy could safely eat baked goods? Since all the regular cookie ingredients are included, Eddie G’s Cookies can be enjoyed by people with peanut and tree-nut allergies or without any food allergies at all.
Eddie G’s cookies are logical. They taste delicious. There are six flavors (chocolate ship, double chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, oatmeal white chocolate and cranberry, oatmeal raisin, and oatmeal chocolate chip. Find them here).
