Here are some of the testimonials received by 8 Arms Community Bakery:
"Yum... wow, we are loving our little sampler. Everything is just delicious."
"Everything has been good so far. I just had a slice of slightly warmed pumpkin bread - ummmmm! Very good! Overall, what I like the most is that the sweets are not too sweet, and the savory breads are substantial, not the fluffy "wonder bread" stuff."
"I love your vegan raspberry hazelnut bars! They are my favorite treat."
"Really liked the sunshine bread! Yummy warmed up with butter. Thanks"
“We picked our our first sample bakery share this week and it was delicious! Potato rosemary garlic bread, honey apple almond bread, almond shortbread cookies and coconut bars. Wow, it’s all amazing! Can’t wait to see what’s next. Such a great program and I love that it supports the local community. Thanks.”
“Hi Jen, Awesome baked goods!! thanks (my favorite: ginger cookies and David’s the Hiker bars ((looking forward to next weeks’ as well))”
“We are so happy to find your gluten-free bread in the Co-Op Olympia. We live in south of Yelm but it is worth the trip to buy your products at the Co-Op. The zuchini loaf, and three other breads we have tried are simply the best GF we have found. Thanks”
“WOW, I love your bakery. I have bought several items at local fairs. The almond fig bread was so good, and all the delicious bars. Can’t wait to try the chocolate hazelnut pie and sourdough bread. I’m so happy you are here!”
“I purchased a share on Living Social and the family and I have really enjoyed our treats and breads. We’re looking at purchasing another share to keep the goodies coming. I have to admit the Potato Rosemary Garlic Bread last week was the bomb. My daughter really enjoyed the Macaroons that came in our share yesterday too. Thanks a ton 8 Arms Community Bakery for bringing your fresh baked goodness into our home.”
“If anybody in the South Sound region is thinking about going gluten-free, I can highly recommend 8 Arms Community Bakery. You’ll want to get on their bakery share program. Their stuff is super awesomely good, the best I’ve had.”
“Today I enjoyed your macaroons for the first time. What a delight for me, since I have such limitations on what I can eat! I am unable to enjoy without consequences items made with baking powder, baking soda, yeast, or flour. I can occasionally tolerate rice flour, but save that to rotate in when I want a creamy tomato soup. I still occasionally will eat gluten free bread, but have a hard time finding gluten free rolls. I notice that you make them, and I will definitely be calling you to order some when I am feeling deprived enough to risk a little discomfort.
By the way, I purchased the macaroons at Zoe Juice Bar. It was also my first time there! THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU DO!! Providing quality gluten free and even a FLOUR free item for wimps like me means that for me your time and efforts are a treasure, and I hope you get told that every day!”
“I saw your interview on Peak Moment TV, and was completely inspired. I think that the CSA style bakery is a great idea.”
“I just had a chocolate nut bar from your bakery. Best I have ever had! Thank you!”
“Love your local business!!”
“I purchase your bars at the co-op’s in olympia they are great..thanks”
“Found ur bread at Shelton farmers market and am totally impressed!!!!! However I live in Oakville :-(. You may consider finding a vendor there to distribute (???) pleeeeeaase”
“There was four loaves at the Olympia Food Co-Op today! I’m currently enjoying a grilled cheese sammich with it. Sooo good, so spicy. Tomorrow, a breakfast bread pudding like casserole using it.”
“Every week we are so excited to get our share… and every week we LOVE our baked goods. Thanks 8 Arms!!”
“Love your creative talents guys”
“Yummy goodies! Thank you for all the great baking you do!”
“I love your chocolate/peanut butter bar. really tasty and I didn’t have to eat it all at once. It was satisfying.”
“Tried the gluten free caramel bar at the Tumwater Farmers Market. Super delicious!!!”
“Just had my first item from you…gf/vegan cranberry orange cookie!!! It will not be my last! Yummmmmm”
“Just tried your gluten free bread. Best gf bread that I have tasted and I love that it is local and socially responsible. Great work!”
“Your sourdough bread is one of the most deliciously perfect things that I have ever tasted.”
