Cool GF Bakery in NH!

On a family vacation I recently traveled to Bristol, New Hampshire, a quaint town bordering Newfound Lake. As usual on any long trip, my family and I prepared a cooler full of gluten-free foods, alleviating us of the worry of not finding things I could eat in the area. Because Bristol was unfamiliar to all of us, my mom decided to search for gluten-free stores in the area. Surprisingly, she found a gluten-free bakery called “Cornucopia Bakery” right in town, a mere five-minute drive from our cottage. Although the shop was closed for the majority of the trip, we were able to visit them on the last day of our stay. I couldn’t believe the extent of their selection of gluten-free baked goods. There was an abundance of breads, scones, cookies, pastries, and even a carrot cake whoopie pie (which was incredibly tasty). The sourdough bread was so delicious that I thought I had purchased the non-gluten-free product by accident!
Anyway, the point is that you should always search online for gluten-free shops before traveling somewhere. You never know what you may come across. Had we not searched for this bakery, we would’ve never known it existed. I had a similar experience last year on a trip to Sedona, Arizona. A gluten-free pizza place was right at the end of my street, but I only knew of it because of a Google search. Gluten-free living is becoming more and more popular as an awareness of gluten intolerance has increased and many people are choosing it as a healthy lifestyle. Shops with these kinds of foods are springing up all over the place, even in unlikely areas.
