I’ve walked by this storefront in my neighborhood at least 100 times. Even though they have a sign in the window that says they sell gluten-free treats, I really wasn’t tempted to check them out until a friend wanted to stop in. Why did I wait so long? Treat House is a rice crispy treat shop, and if I’m going to enjoy a gluten-free treat it has to involve chocolate. Well, it actually has to be filled with chocolate, drenched in chocolate, and then dusted with chocolate.
What I didn’t realize was that the rice crispy square itself is just the beginning. There’s plenty of room for spreading, dipping, topping, and sprinkling with chocolate or any other of your favorite flavors.
The creators at Treat House seem to be limited only by their imaginations.
Which doesn’t seem to be a problem for them. They have 12 original flavors and seasonal flavors that rotate throughout the year.
It definitely wasn’t an issue to find that much needed bit of chocolate.
All of their treats are gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free unless specified otherwise. It’s pretty obvious that the gluten-containing flavors are s’mores, chocolate pretzel, and cookies and cream. But as always, don’t assume anything is gluten free just because there’s a sign in the window. Ask. Always.
They even had a little something for Cinco de Mayo.
Take them home in packs of 1, 2, 4, 12, or 24.
And this chocolate chip treat is vegan!
Here’s a flashback to my Cocoa Crispy Brown Rice Treats that I “healthed up” a bit. Vegan, gluten-free, and sweetened with agave instead of marshmallows, these were delicious.
