**MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!**
Have you heard of Jovial cookies and pasta? We hadn’t either until we reviewed them the first time and really fell in love. They are hand crafted goodies from Italy. The fig filled cookie was the closest thing I have had to a fig newton in years, which was fun. Here are some words from Jovial’s website.
In the Veneto region of Italy, a family-owned bakery creates our very special organic, gluten free cookies. The cookies are baked in small batches, the ingredients are mixed by hand and a unique and delicate process hides the filling in the center of the cookie before baking. Take a sensorial journey to a real Italian bakery and feel special when you reach for your favorite gluten free cookie.
Our facility was specifically designed to ensure an absolutely safe product, but it is not dedicated gluten free. We bake with dedicated equipment on separate production days. Each batch is tested and certified for gluten at less than 10ppm.
The pasta, was great! We loved the firm texture and delicate flavor. It was just as you would hope a gluten free pasta would taste. The Jovial brand pasta has to be one of my favorites as it is closest to what I remember traditional pasta tasting like. Jovial now offers full-of-flavor jared organic tomatoes to really get your pasta head spinning. These two together make a great pair. Just as some fresh garlic and parmesan and you have yourself a real “I”talian treat (Big Bang reference for all of you who got that :). Truly though, Jovial offers great gluten free products and many different cuts of pasta which is nice. There is not a thing you couldn’t dream up to make with this great pasta! Here is a little information about it from the Jovial website.
