Virginia-based StarBites was formed in August 2008 by a group of Americans and Brazilians who wanted to offer an alternative to traditional party-style appetizers, incorporating multicultural influences such as pão de queijo. The company's gluten-free, all-natural frozen product line includes cheese breads and truffles. Though these items are not made in a dedicated gluten-free facility, the company has established protocols to prevent cross-contamination.

The company's traditional cheese bread is available at Mid-Atlantic Whole Foods markets, including those in the Delaware Valley, and at Harris Teeter stores on the East Coast. (At last check, Whole Foods was selling a 16-piece box for $8.19). All of the products can be ordered directly from StarBites through its online store. (Customers can save 10 percent off an order of $80 or more through this link.)
