Fundraising doesn't have to mean selling sugary things!

Nowadays, people are more concerned about what they eat, so fundraisers like selling candies or chocolate are not always well received. However there are companies that deal with reduced carbohydrate products, which mean that they are more acceptable to most people. Take a look below and see what you think.

Fundraisers Can Grab Sweet Rewards with Gladders Gourmet CarbTarget Reduced-Carb Cookies


Reduced carbohydrates can mean Increased profits for fundraising groups.

LOCKHART, TX (PRWEB) June 20, 2004 -- Lets face it; these are not great times to be carrying donuts door-to-door to raise funds for an organization. While some speculate that weve already witnessed the peak of the carb avoidance frenzy, theres no doubt that carb counting is here to stay. To help fundraising distributors and their customer capitalize on low carb sales, Texas dessert king Gladders Gourmet is offering its new CarbTarget Foods line for fundraising.

The fundraising niche is so important to us, that Im excited to make this product available to all our distributors, says Gladders president John Glader. With a product like our CarbTarget Cookies, folks can help local groups achieve their fundraising goals, while getting a fabulous dessert that meets their carb-counting goals, too.

Besides fundraising, Gladders Gourmet is already a significant player in the restaurant and grocery markets with its portion-controlled, place-and-bake cookie dough and ready-to-bake brownie & blondie trays that are all kosher certified (Pareve & Dairy).

The Gladders CarbTarget line includes low carb versions of some of its best-selling cookie flavors like Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chunk, Peanut Butter, Fudge Chocolate Chip (aint carb-counting grand?), Cinnamon Pecan, and Almond. Two new ready-to-bake, low carb brownies are soon to be available, and like the CarbTarget cookies, have 5 or less net carbs per serving. [Net Carbs = Total Carbs - (Dietary Fiber + Sugar Alcohols)].


For all of you using the Zone diet, or any other diet that recommends low calories, this is good news, although it does mean you still have to have the will power to NOT eat the whole box of cookies in one sitting! Good luck! ~ Site Editor

In addition to its signature cookie dough and brownies, the Gladders Gourmet R&D kitchens have developed CarbTarget PizzaSkinza thaw-and-use 6.5 personal-size pizza crust. The product supports the American love affair with pizza, but with a net carb figure that keeps pizza on the menu.

Gladders Gourmet is a Lockhart, Texas-based provider of a wide variety of value-added place-and-bake, ready-to-bake, and thaw-and-serve items for foodservice, convenience store, fundraising, retail grocery and the private label industry. The new CarbTarget and the all-natural Churn and Hearth (butter-rich, low in Trans-Fats) lines join the companys Classic and Elegance lines of premium quality, kosher products.
