Treat House: Gluten and Dairy Free

Treat House: Gluten and Dairy Free

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.

    I can attest to their “magical healing powers!” 😄 I also took awhile to stop by, because my guilty pleasure/splurge is ice cream and/or a cookie. But then I had parents give me a 4-pack during the last week of school one year, and it was the perfect summertime small treat! I think I’m more a fan of these than the regular ones-. I hated making them growing up because they were a pain to get into the pan and then clean up- all that work for so little reward (and no chocolate). And then my first year of teaching I got a giant uncut pan for a birthday celebration. So I got to cut them. All 28. With a plastic knife….

      PSA to all parents of elementary school students…send the proper tools to classroom birthday parties or preCUT your treats!!! Classrooms do not have a full-service kitchen! I had two cakes this year. Uncut. No knife. ???

    That all looks so tasty!! I will have to put it on our list for our next trip to NYC!!

  4. I’m glad you decided to share this one! My son lives in NYC ( I’m an hour and half away) and we go at least once a week!) Being gluten free, I like my GF treats and these look amazing!

  5. I do enjoy rice crispy treats, but don’t often make them. I should though – they are pretty simple to make.
    zomg I can’t believe they have a vegan & gluten-free treat! I don’t come across those often. I wish I lived closer!!!

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, fitness fanatic, gluten-free foodie, high-raw vegan, and Mama Cat living in NYC. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. While I'm not 100% vegan, it's my favorite way to eat, and making and sharing raw foods makes me giddy. Living in the City has its joys and challenges, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with you.
