Did Someone Say Organic Cookie GIVEAWAY?!

Posted by on May 3, 2009 | 198 Comments

Way back in the day, when I first created the website Go Dairy Free, there were just a few fledgling special diet companies out there. One of the first ones I made contact with was Gak’s Snacks. Jill, the mother of a child with multiple food allergies, created a peanut-free, tree nut-free, egg-free, dairy-free bakery (also vegan and organic) that churned out the most delicious coffee cakes and cookies under the Gak’s Snacks label.

But Jill’s once little company has grown since I first met her … and with that growth, she decided they needed a new identity. So Gak’s Snacks became HomeFree Treats. While I admit to missing the old name, I am elated that Jill hasn’t changed a thing about her products, aside from adding some new ones! Trust me, everyone will want these (just ask Sarah), they aren’t simply for the food allergic (yes, even if you can eat everything under the sun, you can, AND SHOULD enter to win this giveaway).

Home Free Giveaway


Oh yes, the giveway…

    sorry about the earlier confusion. I’ll let my friends know that they must enter through their own comps. Thanks!

    Any cookie that my 4 year old son with multiple food allergies can eat is a wonderful cookie to me! His 11 month old brother also has food allergies so I would love to win these cookies. It’s so hard to tell a child he can’t have something because it will make his sick. With these cookies, at least he would be able to have some treats.

  10. Kathy says:

    1. sugar cookie
    2. molasses cookie

    My son LOVES your chocolate chip cookies!

    Mmm… some kind that mimics a white chocolate chip macademia nut would be awesome!!!

  26. Collingwood says:

    Definitely to come up with something chewy and spicy with molasses and pumpkin pie spices… or maybe a chai spice blend. Cinnamon-sweet cookies are also great – they have to be soft though! Cinnamon/gingersnaps are good too, but… 😀

  27. tina says:

  28. Andy L. says:

    Coconut and chocolate and caramel much like some non vegan cookies old be little girls in uniforms…starts with an “S”

  29. KW says:

    Brown sugar and caramel!

  30. Glory Buyrn says:

    I would love to see a really decadent chocolate cookie with chocolate chips, toffee, caramel, and maybe even soybutter. Not really sure if you can make toffee without dairy, though???

  31. amir says:

    I want these cookies because they’re dairy free.

  32. Joanne Schultz says:

    I’d love to see an oatmeal raisin, a mint cookie(but not with chocolate) and a non-chocolate cookie with toffee bits in it!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  33. Emily says:

    I second the Snickerdoodle!!! 😀 Or Chocolate cherry!

  34. I want them because we try to eat as much organic as possible and would love to try these.

    Maybe she could make a Butternut Toffee?

  35. brianna says:

    soft sugar cookie!

    It is incredibly hard to find animal friendly cookies, I’m grateful that you are making the world a better place and feeding it deliciousness at the same time 🙂

  36. Erin says:

    There should be a white choco macadamia nut cookie. B/c that’s 1 of the best flavas evah.




  37. Alison says:

    Something with coconut would be great. Maybe dates too.

  38. barbara wright says:

    Hmm – this contest ends Friday May 9th. Friday was the 8th, but Saturday is the 9th. I’ll assume Saturday 🙂

    Pumpkin always does it for me!

    Oatmeal coconut chip

  43. Megan says:

    Not sure if I’m too late for this or not. I’d like to see a good, safe vanilla sandwich cookie (vanilla wafers with vanilla cream inside). My daughter loves Home Free cookies and it is great to give her a treat with no worries!

  44. karen Y. says:

    Hi, I think the flavors all look yummy as they are, but please pick me for the free samples because I just started eating organic because I want to be healthier. I read Suzanne Somers book and she ruined me ha ha! Anyway, I have twin girls that just turned 2 and love cookies. I am looking to try some organic cookies they would like:)

  45. Pat says:

    Your cookies look delicious and could not be improved upon–but since you asked, why not a pretty pink pomegranate cookie? Pomegranate is very popular these days. Thank you for the contest. Happy Mother’s Day!

  46. Kelly Ann T. says:

    I would love gingerbread with raisins.
