Madison, CT – July, 2019 – Goodman Gluten Free, a line of better tasting gluten free baked goods, announced today that its chocolate chip cookies, vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting and vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting have won the ChefsBest Excellence Award, a prestigious industry award earned by brands that surpass quality and taste standards established by independent professional chefs.

The panel consists of independent professional chefs certified as Master Tasters®. They are led by trained moderators in defining product attributes and quality standards for the category. The ChefsBest chefs carefully evaluate products against a range of detailed criteria spanning appearance, aroma, taste, flavor and texture. The distinctive ChefsBest Excellence Award seal will appear on packaging and in communication for the awarded Goodman products.

“We launched Goodman Gluten Free in order to bring new deliciousness to gluten free baked goods, and the ChefsBest Excellence Award demonstrates we’ve achieved our mission,” said Bob Goodman, founder and CEO of Goodman Gluten Free. “There’s only one ChefsBest award winner in any given product category, and this endorsement by professional chefs for award winning taste confirms that our proprietary recipes, expert bakery staff and rigorous quality control are evident in the quality of our products.”
