Office parties are supposed to be fun, right? Well, not always! This time, the drama is all about a batch of delicious brownies. Our baker is known for making amazing brownies, but they've never shared them with their colleagues. So, for an upcoming office BBQ party, they decide to bring their famous brownies as a treat. But there's a twist - one of their colleagues, Dina, is gluten-allergic and wants the brownies to be gluten-free. 😬🍫

The Great Brownie Debate: To Gluten or Not to Gluten? 🍫🤷

So, our baker is bringing their famous brownies to the office BBQ party, but Dina, a gluten-allergic colleague, wants them to make the brownies gluten-free. The baker refuses, saying they don't want to change their recipe and that another colleague is planning a gluten-free dessert. Dina is disappointed, and the baker's mom suggests making separate batches, but the baker isn't keen on the idea. What do you think? Should the brownies be made gluten-free, or should Dina settle for another dessert? Let's see what the internet thinks of this sticky situation... 🍫🌐

Not everyone has to cater to every dietary need 🙅‍♂️
