Z's Blind Taste Test #1: Gluten-Free Brownies!

Z's Blind Taste Tests are a NEW feature on Gluten-Free from A to Z!

Z's Blind Taste Test #1: Gluten-Free Brownies!

How It Works: Z will cook/bake/prepare four different versions of the same gluten-free product and randomly label each version with a number. Then A and friends will try all four versions and rank them from most favorite to least favorite. The results will allow us to see exactly how different brands of gluten-free products compare to each other!

The Contenders:
  1. Pamela's Products' Chocolate Brownie Mix
  2. Trader Joe's Gluten Free Brownie Baking Mix
  3. Arrowhead Mills' Gluten Free Brownie Mix
  4. Namaste Foods' Gluten Free Brownie Mix
