This post is overdue, but here it is! Jungle Jim's Eastgate is a reality. Tomorrow it will have been open three weeks, and I've been there four times now.
Tip specifically for my readers:
Follow the beer/wine/cigar signs around the Danbarry Dollar Saver to pull around the back of the store. There is a smaller express checkout area, and I have yet to wait more than five minutes to check out.
The first glimpse shown here includes items from Tina's Sweet Treats out of Franklin (on the pink shelves) and Eban Bakery of Grove City (on the top shelf).
Chef Braddock of Eban Bakery was there on October 6th, giving samples of their seeded, flax seed oat, and cinnamon raisin breads. (The cinnamon raisin is so good, it was sold out, & I returned later in the week to get some for breakfast.) He plans to be there on Saturdays as often as he can.
Sonny Marie's (a Cincinnati-area gluten free bakery with pizza crusts available at the new Mac's location) and Moondance (a Cincinnati gluten free bakery with goods available nationwide now in Whole Foods stores)
|Shown here: the variety purchased at Chicago's O'Hare Airport|
Do note, though, that not all flavors are gluten free. Those that are that I've tried...mmm...
Happy eating! :)
