Happy Birthday to Me! Mama B’s

I have an awesome job!  I work for Brooks Rehabilitation as Manager of Strategic Marketing.  We are a non-profit hospital system focusing on rehabilitation with an inpatient rehabilitation hospital, outpatient rehabilitation , home health, skilled nursing and rehabilitation, research and on and on and on.

We try our hardest to celebrate birthdays at our office and yesterday my office celebrated my birthday by bringing in Mama B’s Specialties, LLC.  A co-worker of mine lives in the same neighborhood as it’s owner and we have talked on multiple occasions about these delicious treats.

We enjoyed chocolate chip cupcakes with chocolate chip cake and icing and Sun Butter cupcakes with chocolate chip cake and Sun Butter icing.  I thought they were delicious.  However it was interesting to see how my co-workers (who are not gluten-free) reacted.  Some didn’t try them at all but there were a few who were adventurous and tried atleast a bite or two.

It is interesting how people who don’t follow a gluten-free diet think things that are gluten-free don’t taste good.  I agree, there are numerous gluten-free items I try that are just horrible.  However, these were delicous.

Some of the comments I heard from my coworkers “it is not overly sweet, I like it, ”  “I like the chocolate chip icing with the chocolate chips best, ”  “I like the cake consistency, it is like a muffin.”   One of my coworkers even responded “you know, I wouldn’t mind ordering stuff like this on a regular basis for your birthday for the whole group, not just you.”

I am still going to stand that Cookie Momsters is my favorite bakery in town, however it is always nice to have options.

I look forward to trying other Mama B’s Specialties!
