They got Whoopy Pie! Sure, you will also find a variety of other sweet stuff as well as great wraps and salads and breakfast items at Whole Treats in Truckee. And yes, most of the food is prepared with gluten free ingredients with a focus on being healthy. Yeah, yeah, that’s all well and good. But seriously, you gotta try the Whoopy Pie.

After a 40 plus mile bike ride from Donner Lake to Cisco Grove, and more importantly back, I need one of those Gobble Gobble wraps with turkey and cranberry. But that’s just to stretch out the tummy to get it ready for the main event, that Whoopy thing that keeps me coming back for more. In the middle there is this big glob of not too sweet but just sweet enough filling, surrounded by two cookie/cake like bits of lusciousness. In fact, it is the perfect way to cap off any athletic endeavor anytime of year.

Ok. Back to the rest of the menu. Aside from the Gobble Gobble, go for the Tuna Wrap. They’ve also got a whole host of top notch salads. Or go for breakfast burritos and a host of other eggs dishes like The Kitchen Sink, which includes just about everything. They’ve also got a host of different waffles. And then there is the French Toast Casserole. They take gluten free muffins and soak em in the eggs and a bunch of other yummy goodies to marinate all those flavors, and then cook it up in the morning. I’m getting hungry just typing this.

The idea for this Whole Treats began with owner Elizabeth Weir’s discovery that she had Candida, an excessive accumulation of yeast in the body. After changing her diet to only whole food, this life long baker had to discover how to bake with alternative and healthy baking ingredients. She puts that knowledge to work in what she serves at Whole Treats.

While the food is great, it’s also satisfying to have the opportunity to support a small locally owned business that is providing a healthy product to the community. If you’ve stopped at Whole Treats before and liked it, get yourself back in. They would love your business.

Whole Treats is a 12047 Donner Pass Road, next to The Shell Station where the Outlet Stores and Paco’s are located. (530) 582-1554
