The Puzzled Palate

About the Blog

The Puzzled Palate is unique because it has multiple target niches- the gluten free community and those looking for autism spectrum resources. Both of these communities are known for both their loyalty as readers and growth rate. However, our posts are not limited to those two subjects. While we often share family friendly attractions in the Atlanta area, products reviews and host giveaways, we also love throwing in the "just-for-fun" reads. 

In the past 6 months, The Puzzled Palate has been privileged to work with many companies including national brands such as eMeals, Find Me Gluten Free and KidsLink.
