S'mores without a fire? Yep. We turned 'em into a cake. And, try the new Yin Yang cookie flavors!
Summer has come upon us quickly, and we're here to help you stay out of your hot, sticky kitchen! Grab a pie for your next picnic — we buy hundreds of pounds of local blueberries every summer so that we can keep Ithaca's collective sweet tooth satisfied. Blueberry Crumb pie never tasted so good! We're also putting lots of delicious local rhubarb to good use in our new vegan Rhu-Bars! They're hearty and tart; nice and refreshing. Also look for our new S'mores cake. You heard me — we dreamed up a graham cake, filled it with chocolate and marshmallow, and made the outside nice and toasty, campfire-style. Our Yin Yang cookies have also gotten a little fancy; in addition to the classic chocolate flavor, they're now available in mint, orange, strawberry, and cherry. Don't forget, Thursday afternoon is donut time! Don't wait — they go fast. Look for the assortment of vegan flavors in the muffin/bagel case

|GreenStar's Bakery Expands Wheat-Free Offerings|
By Kristie Snyder,
You know a diet is popular when a Google search returns over 12 million results, as it does for "gluten free diet." Compare that with "vegan diet," which turns up a paltry 2.6 million. It's clear that people are increasingly avoiding wheat products and gluten, the stretchy protein found in wheat and many of its relatives. Many who avoid gluten have been diagnosed with celiac disease, in which gluten consumption can cause intestinal inflammation and damage the lining of the intestines. Others experience wheat allergies or intolerances, which can lead to a host of symptoms.
Ten years ago, finding gluten- or wheat-free baked goods could be a real challenge, and finding ones that tasted good proved even more difficult. But a trip to GreenStar's bakery case today yields over two dozen delicious wheat- or gluten-free options.
