America Gra-Frutti Continues to Grow!

I am so excited for my dear friend Marilyn Santulli and the good things that continue to happen for her brand American Gra-Frutti. She's magnificent. Her products are magnificent.

Try them at a Whole Foods Market near you in the Southeast. OR, at Return to Eden, Life Grocery, or through The Website.

American Gra-Frutti gluten-free cakes now available in 18 southeast Whole Foods Markets

Two luscious gluten- and dairy-free cakes from Marietta, Ga., based American Gra-Frutti are now being sold across the southeast in Whole Foods Markets.

The “You Love Chocolate Chip” cake and cupcake, as well as the “They’ll Never Know” spice cake, flavored with carrots, squash and spinach, are now on sale at Whole Foods Markets in Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee and North Carolina. Both cakes, topped with a decadent dairy-free frosting, can be purchased as a “grab and go” individual cupcake, a cupcake four pack, or a 5” two-layer cake.

All American Gra-Frutti products are produced in a dedicated, gluten-free facility by company Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Marilyn Santulli. The American Gra-Frutti bake shop is located in Marietta, Ga., and American Gra-Frutti products are sold around metro Atlanta including Whole Foods Markets, Harry’s Farmer’s Markets in East Cobb and Alpharetta , Turner Field, Return 2 Eden, and Life Grocery. American Gra-Frutti products are also sold at MOM’S Organic Markets in Maryland, and Abbey’s Health Food Store in Tampa, Fla.

“American Gra-Frutti’s explosion into the southeast region of Whole Foods Markets is a huge step for us,” Santulli said. “I am delighted to be able to serve the gluten free and dairy free community in these states, and I look forward to my continued relationship with Whole Foods Markets. We are excited to visit the stores outside of Georgia for in store demonstrations very soon!”

American Gra-Frutti was founded in 2007 by Santulli, who transitioned her traditional cake line to gluten free after she adopted the lifestyle in January 2008. Since then, American Gra-Frutti has become the source for decadent, nutritious and healthy gluten-free desserts with a universal appeal. Santulli, a skilled baker by trade, is passionate about her product and is devoted to making desserts that can be enjoyed by those with gluten and dairy intolerances, as well as those without. With American Gra-Frutti as her vehicle, Santulli is humbled and excited to participate with R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids), The Autism Society and the Children’s Hunger Fund.

“Once I became gluten free, I understood the need for a delicious, healthy dessert,” Santulli said. “I’m delighted that our customers think American Gra-Frutti fills that bill.”

American Gra-Frutti products also include the popular “Peachtree Pimento” spread, which is available in both regular and spicy flavors. Also available are the moist and delicious Coconut Drops in several flavors--Almond Angels, Peanut Butter and Peppermint Crème to name a few. Santulli also produces vegan cakes in assorted sizes and flavors by special order.

All products are available through mail order on the company’s website or by calling 404-304-9255.
