'''[http://www.food4celiacs.com/ShopOnline/TRF/index.html Toro]''' is a line of gluten-free baking mixes from Norway. Many of our Milwaukee-area customers had an opportunity to experience their exceptional taste and texture first-hand at our Sampling Day in September. At that event, the mixes were represented by the Bosking family, owners of an Iowa-based company called Tastes Like Real Food that imported the mixes to the US. They developed many excellent recipes around the mixes, including these for [[Peanut Butter Cookies]], [[Sugar Cookies]], and [[Lefse]].

Recently, Toro decided to re-formulate the mixes for the European market. Unfortunately, the recipes developed by Tastes Like Real Food do not work with the new formulations. That issue combined with price pressure from the weak US dollar have resulted in Tastes Like Real Food deciding to stop importing Toro mixes. We are now able to offer the remainder of the old-formula stock at a deep discount. The mixes originally sold for $7.49, but while supplies last we will be closing them out for just $3.79, a savings of almost 50%. These old-formula mixes have a "best before" date of January 2010 (the shelf life can be extended by freezing them). There are four to choose from:
