The Classic Southern Cheese Straw Just Got Better!
Five Points Baking Company is a new North Carolina venture with a decidedly vintage vibe. In a world that prioritizes instant gratification and routinely sacrifices quality in favor of a faster, cheaper option, we're strikingly different. We are committed to taking the time to do things right, and we know that the details matter.
This means we bake the way you do: by hand, with the best ingredients, without added preservatives and in small batches. It takes us a bit longer and costs a bit more, but the results are worth it! Our snacks are all natural and gluten free, while boasting incomparable flavor and texture. We're proud of the fact that our foods feature an ingredients list that a first grader can read, and a nutritional panel that adults won't regret reading. If you haven't had the chance to sample our snacks in your area, go ahead and make your selection from our online store – you won't be disappointed.
Five Points Baking Company is dedicated to producing gluten free, all-natural snacks without sacrificing flavor or texture. Our mission is to offer gluten free options without compromise – the kind of treats you look forward to savoring, not mere imitations of your original favorites.
This mission is personal as well as corporate. Our company was inspired during the founder's quest to create a satisfying snack for her husband – a Type I Diabetic with Celiac disease. He wanted something he could snack on by the handful, but the options for a low-carb, gluten free snack were limited to say the least. Many, if not most, of the commercially available gluten free snacks boast exceptionally high carbohydrate content - a deal breaker for diabetics and others watching their blood sugar. He was left with few options – until months of test kitchen experiments yielded success in the creation of our new Artisanal Cheese Straws. With all the goodness of almonds, our cheese straws are gluten free while boasting 3g carbs and 5g protein per 1 oz serving. We mean it when we say the classic Southern cheese straw just got better!
