From the beginning (even before it was so popular), Antonina’s has always used clean, all-natural
ingredients without artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. We believe you can taste the

Many of the stores that sell our products have them in their bakery freezer. This is a great way to ensure you have the most time at home to enjoy these delicious treats. It typically takes less than 30 minutes for our products to thaw on your counter although you may want to give our layer cakes 15-30 additional minutes.
If you have trouble finding our products on the bakery table or in their freezer, ask the bakery manager of your favorite grocery store if they can bring them in. If you have purchased them in the store in the past, they may have them in their back freezer or temporarily be out. Hearing from their customers is a good reminder to have them available again.

We hear from so many happy customers because they serve them to their family and friends, who
are not gluten-free, and they love them just as much.
