  •   This food is absolutely AMAZING! By taste and texture you would never know that this food is gluten-free! Bread is one of my very favorite things. I spent years going without it because of my gluten-sensitivities. The first time that I ate bread from Better For You Bakery, it was fantastic! It was delicious, and homemade, and FELT AND TASTED like bread in my mouth! I cried. I have, since then, tried just about everything that this bakery has to offer, including cakes, cupcakes, cookies, pies, tarts, cinnamon rolls, scones, breads, buns, the mixes, and the granola, and I am NEVER disappointed. If you're looking for allergen-free food that TASTES delicious, THIS is the place to go! EVERYTHING is good. Everything. (Oh - and the angel food cake is divine!!) Tina has revolutionized the way that I am able to eat. I no longer have to sit sadly and watch everyone ELSE eat delicious goodies that I can't have at holidays and special events - I can bring my own.

      Thank you for the gluten free flour. I have tried many substitutes and they all failed when it came to making homemade egg noodles but yours is the best tastes just like my moms. So again thank you for making delicious food and affordable options.

  •   Tina makes THE best cinnamon rolls!! I personally don't have to eat gluten free but do for my son's diet and I can say that better for you bakery products are very comparable to regular gluten products but of course are better for you � I highly recommend any of the products, but did I mention the cinnamon rolls are to die for?!? Thank you so much for providing tasty options in the allergy world, it's so appreciated!!

      I had the opportunity this past weekend to test and review the 4 available gluten free mixes by Better For You Bakery. They were easy too make and absolutely delicious! I wasn'tthe only one who thought so, as I shared with my co-workers and some family who each share my opinion!! I wrote a review of my experience and these wonderful products on my blog.

      I just made the Better for You Bakery Chocolate Cake Mix into cupcakes and they are AWESOME! They are moist and not crumbly at all, which is all too common in gluten-free baked goods. The cupcakes are super flavorful and satisfy my chocolate craving 100%! I also liked that the directions were easy to follow and I didn't have to have any "weird" ingredients on hand to whip these up. My hubby has a house full of friends over tonight and they grabbing for seconds! AND they don't have to eat gluten free, like me! Everyone likes them!! I look forward to making these cupcakes again!

  •   I love all the products I get from Better For You Bakery. Tina has been especially responsive to my dietary restrictions. I can eat nearly everything she sells and she has adapted her recipes when I wanted something. The mixes are wonderful. My friends all love the chocolate cake mix, I made cupcakes and took them to work, they didn't believe they are gluten free the first time they had them. Being able to have bread that tastes like real bread is fabulous and being able to bake it myself and have it fresh out of the oven is beyond wonderful. After years of doing without bread because the wheat bread was bad for me and the commercial gluten-free products had no taste, these quality products are fantastic.

      I used the chocolate cake mix and made mini cupcakes for the grandkids. All gave them a thumbs up and wow those are good!! Very moist! We will of course make these again!

      I have been a chef for more than 20 years, and better for you bakery is by far the best gluten free products I've had. I'm currently opening a restaurant just off of court Ave. In Des Moines, and plan to feature bfyb gluten free chocolate cupcakes as a permanent dessert option in the restaurant, as well as many other creative, delicious creations from bfyb. This stuff is top notch! The restaurant's name is Dirt Burger, and will be open late summer 2017.

  •   Great food and service. I love the cupcakes, and the mixes are easy to use and make wonderful bread and cake. I don't need gluten-free, but Better for You Bakery makes such good stuff that I don't mind the gluten-free aspect.

      I have used Better for You Bakery items for almost two years. Excellent products. I have taken items to functions and people are very surprised that they are gluten free. The German Chocolate Angel Food cake and chocolate cupcakes have always been a huge hit. Thank you Tina for opening your bakery. You have spoiled me.

      Better For You Bakery helped me create an Easter feast for my family and not worry about their dietary restrictions. I made the multi grain bread into egg casserole, and the coffee cakes are divine! Always so moist and delicious, my favorite type of cake!

      Had a fun afternoon Tea with a neat bunch of ladies today. And the little chocolate cupcakes from Better For You bakery were liked by all. Thanks Tina Meseck, one of the ladies had a food allergy, (unbeknownst to us) and was able to enjoy the party because of your cupcakes! Awesome!

  •   I am not fortunate enough to live where the bakery is, so I'm excited about the new mixes she has created. So far, I've made the french bread mix and it's almost as good as the wheat-based stuff! Better, of course, because we have no reactions! I just bought the English Muffin mix this week and am going to try it soon. For a family that hasn't eaten baked goods in years, these make a nice treat.

      I bought a loaf of French bread for my Christmas eve supper. I also got with that an order of corn bread. My daughter-in-law made corn bread stuffing with it on on Christmas day. It was very, very tasty. Think I will may try out the new mixes now too. It was nice that my daughter-in-law didn't have to be "left out" as the bread passed her way this holiday! Thanks Tina!
