American Gra-Frutti hits a home run at Turner Field gluten-free stand

Beginning this week, American Gra-Frutti LLC products will be in the starting lineup for a second year at the gluten-free concession stand at Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves.

Seven new American Gra-Frutti products will join last season’s favorites, Gluten- and dairy-free cupcakes  in American Gra-Frutti’s Signature flavors,   “You Love Chocolate Chip” and “They’ll Never Know,” a carrot-spice style flavor. This year’s roster – seasoned veterans in the gluten-free community -- includes:

• Wholesome White hot dog and hamburger rolls, which are gluten, dairy, soy and nut free;

• Gluten-free Caramel Crunch Snack Mix, crunchier and more addictive than that tried-and-true ballpark favorite;
• Gluten-, dairy- and soy-free muffins in three flavors--apple cinnamon, blueberry and sweet potato; and

• Gluten-free Chunkie Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The “You Love Chocolate Chip” cupcake, as well as the “They’ll Never Know” spice cake flavored with carrots, squash and spinach, were a staple at Turner Field last year, and 
creator Marilyn Santulli is delighted that additional products will be available for gluten-free guests this year.

“We are honored to be recognized by the management of the concessions at Turner Field as a quality supplier of gluten-free products,” Santulli said.  “The new chef at Turner Field is gluten free.  We see this opportunity as the beginning of a beautiful relationship with America’s Team.

The new products are available during this week’s exhibition games but will make a season-opening splash when the Braves return to Atlanta April 8 for their home opener vs. the Philadelphia Phillies.  The gluten-free concession stand is located at aisle 106, and Santulli is hoping the products will also soon be available to fans who dine in Club 755.

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 the southeast at Whole Foods Markets, and are sold in metro Atlanta at the Georgia Dome,
Shepherd Center, Harry’s Farmer’s Markets in East Cobb and Alpharetta, Return 2 Eden, Life Grocery.  The American Gra-Frutti products are also sold at MOM’S chain in Maryland,Goodwells Natural Foods, Detroit,  Mi., Natural Market Place, Jasper, Ga., and Abby’s Health Food Store in Tampa, Fla.,

American Gra-Frutti’s expansion into the gluten-free concession area at Turner Field is a huge step for us,” Santulli said.  “I am delighted to be able to serve the gluten-free community who want a safe dining experience at the ballpark.  I look forward to our continued relationship with Turner Field. We can’t wait to visit the ballpark for a good ol’ gluten-free hot dog and caramel crunch to much while cheering on new manager Fredi Gonzales and the rest of this year’s Atlanta Braves team!”

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 other intolerances, as well as those without.  With American Gra-Frutti as her vehicle, Santulli is also proud to participate with R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids), Children’s Hunger Fund, Sydney’s School House, Tampa, Fl. and the Autism Society.  Her products are also sold at Whole Foods Markets around the southeast.

“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” pimento cheese spread, which is available in both regular and spicy flavors.  Both are made with pure cheese—no mayo, cream cheese or sour cream.   Also available are the moist and delicious Coconut Drops, Almond Angels and Peppermint Crème.  Santulli also produces vegan cakes in assorted sizes and flavors by special order. American Gra-Frutti’s products are made without any preservatives or artificial colorings or flavorings.

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

Yay! Is there a TV set near 106 so I can just sit by the stand and eat caramel crunch?
