Rhodes Egg-Free, Nut-Free Cinnamon Rolls - A Possibility for your Allergy~Friendly Home

Rhodes Review from Smart Allergy~Friendly Education
I have been a fan of Rhodes Bread for years.  I was introduced to them when I was having difficulty finding a dairy-free bread my kids could safely eat.  This product was recommended to me by many of my fellow egg-free, nut-free, dairy-free moms.  Maybe you read my review of their rolls in 2012, Rhodes White Bread - A Dairy-Free Possibility for Your Home.  Their rolls and breads have become a staple in our home ever since. 

However, I have stayed away from eating their Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese frosting because I knew there was NO way my kids could eat them safely.  Here is the surprise I found.  My kids could eat the cinnamon rolls… just NOT the icing that was packaged on the side. And these are made in a facility which does NOT process any peanuts, tree nuts, meats, fish or shellfish.

I know there may be some concern about the ‘natural’ and ‘artificial’ flavors, and some of you won’t be happy with all of the additional ingredients.  However, if you’re looking for a quick option for cinnamon rolls or a treat for your allergy kids, this just may be an option you can try out.

If it hadn’t been for the fact that my in-laws brought these to a family gathering, I wouldn’t have even given them a closer evaluation.  Maybe they will work for you too.
