My daughter Brittany, who was diagnosed with Autism when she was two years old, was my inspiration for starting Simply Shari's Gluten Free. She was very sickly as a child with multiple digestive issues. We took her to every doctor around, yet no one could definitively diagnose what was wrong with her — until one day my father said:
“Shari, put her on a gluten free diet! Stop screwing around, and get her gluten free, soy free and dairy free.”
So I did. I saw that she was no longer lethargic, and her teachers were even calling with news that she was doing much better in school.
The transformation was mind-boggling, and that’s where Simply Shari’s was born.
I launched my company to make the best tasting cookies ever, using quality ingredients that just so happened to be gluten free. From beginning with chocolate chip cookies baked in my kitchen, we have expanded our offering of gluten-free shortbread cookies to include many other snackalicious flavors!
Even those without Celiac Disease or a gluten intolerance are hooked when they discover Simply Shari's Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies!
I take personal pride in producing all natural Certified Gluten-Free products using Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients to make your Gluten-Free world a tastier place!
They're so good you won't believe that they are gluten free!
