Freshly baked goods are my family’s kryptonite. If we walk into a bakery you bet we are going to purchase a few of their delicious offerings. So when I heard about bakerly, a company that makes freshly baked French goods I was intrigued. When I then heard that their products are completely free of preservatives, artificial coloring, artificial flavoring, zero high fructose corn syrup and zero trans fat I knew my family and I had to give bakerly a try.
A bit about bakerly
Bakerly was started when Julien and Fabian, two Bretons (from Brittany, in NW France) decided to combine their efforts and talents to convince American consumers that crêpes, brioches, and other traditional French products deserved a place in every American household. Honestly, they didn’t have to convince me–I love traditional French products!
Julien has decades of experience in manufacturing delicious wholesome bakery products in France. Being half-American, he has been waiting for the right time to move to the US and introduce his products here.
Fabian used to have his own restaurant and made the best crêpes in Brittany (and perhaps in the world!). He has been hoping to sell crêpes and other bakery items on a large scale ever since moving to the US more than a decade ago.
Their goal? To stay true to making quality bakery products the same way they enjoyed them when they were children in France.
Bakerly partners with farmers in the U.S. which enables them to use only pure, top quality ingredients with honest origins:
- The milk they use is real milk, or milk the way nature intended – meaning it’s never from concentrate and free of rBST.
- The eggs are never processed or dehydrated
- The folks at bakerly actually pick their own strawberries at the top of their ripeness. In fact, there is no need to add coloring because the deep-red beauties taste as good as they look, especially when rolled up into a tasty crepe.
- The chocolate comes from real cacao trees, not some version of chocolate you’d find in a laboratory test tube.
I was sent two products from bakerly’s snack line: Hazelnut Chocolate filled crepes with crispy cereal bits and Strawberry filled Crepes. Each crepe comes 6 to a bag and is individually wrapped. My kids were each given a crepe in their lunch bags and they came home begging me to give them a crepe every day. I love how easy it is to add these crepes to my kid’s school lunches and to know that they are eating high-quality snacks. The crepes truly are delicious and the perfect size for snacking. They are delicious, sweet and delectable.
I was also sent two products from bakerly’s family line: Hand Braided Brioche and Brioche Rolls with Milk Chocolate Chips. Never in my life had Brioche bread that was this light, airy and delicious. I don’t know how bakerly does it but OMG these products are divine. As soon as I took out the Hand Braided Brioche I knew I had to use it to make french toast. Keep reading to get my recipe for Eggnog French Brioche.

As you can tell my family and I highly recommend bakerly and can’t wait to try more of their products soon!
I received these products complimentary for the purpose of this review.
