New Fall Flavors Are Here!!

Posted on Oct 4, 2013
Fall is my absolute favorite time of year.  Everyone who knows me knows this and while they all think my love for Fall is due to my October birthday, it’s really so much more than that.  It’s that slight chill in the air, the smell of fireplaces burning at dusk, the colors the foliage takes on in slow motion, but my absolute favorite thing about Fall is it’s flavor.  There is nothing like the flavors of Fall.  Winter squashes spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves, the tart and sweet complexities of cranberries, the abundance of Oregon grown apples and pears ranging in flavor from super sour to super sweet.  The spicy and warming flavors of chai and mexican spiced chocolate, the buttery profiles of walnuts and pecans and the autumnal flavor of toasted oregon hazelnuts.

All of these flavors inspire me every year to create a new line-up of delicious Gluten-Free Vegan baked goods that warm up both your stomach and your heart.  Here is a taste of the new flavors we are kicking off this special season with.

The Maple Walnut Scone is back and better than ever.  This was a Back to Eden staple for the first few years and went into temporary retirement until a Gluten-Free version could be created that was just as good.  I’m happy to say that day has arrived!
We have two new breads for you to choose from bursting with flavor and sweetened only with Pure Organic Maple Syrup.  The Marionberry Molasses bread has a deep gingerbread flavor and is complemented by a sweet and tart marionberry burst and the Ginger Pumpkin Pear bread is a great way to get your daily dose of pumpkin with the spice of ginger and the sweetness of local Oregon pears.
Our new Butternut Squash Apple Hazelnut Muffin is an instant favorite with our staff!  This delicious muffin is made with organic butternut squash puree and studded with apples and hazelnuts both grown in Oregon!
Pies are also seeing a seasonal shift from the bright vibrant flavors of summer to the more subtle and soothing flavors of Fall.  We still have our Chocolate Cream Pies and along side them is our Pumpkin Cream Pie, a classic pumpkin pie filling topped with our whipped cream topping and dusted with nutmeg!  For fruit pies it’s time for Caramel Apple Crumble Pies!  Made with organic tart Oregon apples, tossed with brown sugar and spices and topped with a crunchy crumb top it doesn’t get much more fall than this pie!
The Pumpkin Whoopie is also back!  That’s about all I need to say about that right?!
Two new doughnut flavors are also gracing the cases this Fall!  The first is a Chocolate Root Beer Doughnut made with the same chocolate base you love but topped with a glaze made with pure natural root beer and dusted with organic, fair-trade cocoa.  The Pumpkin Doughnut is back and topped with a everyone’s favorite Maple glaze!!
We are also adding a new fall Mini Cake to the rotation and it’s really delicious!  It is made from moist pumpkin cakes, filled with vanilla buttercream, covered in ganache and topped with candied pepitas (pumpkin seeds!) it’s rich, delicious and seasonal!
These are just some of the new products that we are rolling out this season so be sure to keep checking in to see what new things we come up with!  Thank you all for your support, we get so much joy out of feeding you, our community.  I hope you all enjoy and embrace this fall as much as I do! 

With Warmest Regards,
