My go-to grocery store. Very inexpensive if you know how to shop. Favorites: Organic bananas $0.29 each GF multigrain or brown rice bread $3.99 GF Buttermilk pancake/waffle mix $3.99 GF Joe Joe's (oreos) $3.99 GF chocolate cupcakes (4) $3.99 GF chocolate chip, chococolate chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, or meringues $3.99 GF frozen waffles $1.99 GF frozen pizza $5 Almond milk $2-3? GF pasta ($3-4?) Sunflower butter $4-5 Almond butter $7.99 I could go on but you should go on my blog for more. Just do NOT get the berries (mainly strawberries and cherries). They are not kept well and often have mold. All the other fruit and veggies are great though.
TJ's list of gluten free foods is expanding. Just recently they have come out with their own line of sandwich bread, hamburger and hot dog buns. Their large cupcakes are to die for. Their mini cupcakes, for some reason, are not as tender and tasty as the large ones. I have tried the hamburger rolls and find them to be tasty, light, and at least half the price of Udi's per unit. I'm excited to go back and try the sandwich breads.
Well, they used to be five star a gluten-free grocery store. Now, not so much. I used to go through the aisles and say "no, Christine, do not buy the produce because it goes bad quickly." And always give in.. and my fruits and vegetables would be bad within two days. Now, you can find me bypassing produce and then sifting endlessly through products reading the backs of the packaging just to find something -anything- I can eat. Recently, they removed the gluten-free aisle labels, making it difficult to find gf options. Then, if you finally find a product labeled gluten-free, make sure you also check the back of the packaging to make sure it is in fact gluten-free and made a gluten-free facility. No thanks. Whole Foods ... Harris Teeter ... Farm Fresh.. Etc are where it's at.
When asked about their gluten free items at checkout, the cashier briefly walked away and came back with a four page printout of specific store items and info. They have also been very helpful and knowledgable when I have questions for them in the aisles.
I wish they would put all their GF options in one section but perhaps it wouldn't be that big. :p Their GF frozen pizza is the best I've tried as well as their crispy chocolate chip cookies. But that's really it. Besides the gf penne and brown rice tortillas (which taste like paper), they now stock GF flour. most of their marinated meats have gluten so stay clear. And, if you are GFCF, TJs is a quick stop for a few things. Unfortunately their coconut creamer has been bad every time I bought one so never again.
Decent selection. They have list of GF items at customer service which is GREAT! Seasonal pumpkin pancake mix is awesome.
Cheap, high quality, and delicious. My go-to spot for pastas, snacks, and other wheat-free treats.
Trader Joes is the easiest place to shop and makes it really appealing to eat more gluten free and healthy in general. From the gluten free chocolate cupcakes, pumpkin pancakes, gluten free brownie mix(!!!!!so good!!!!) gluten free deli meats, bread, bagel, potato chips, chocolate caramels, almond clusters and so on and so on... They label everything extremely thorough with GF for gluten free on the label and food contains: which will list any allergens that are in the food such as, soy, egg, nuts, gluten etc. AND if you still aren't sure check out the wall guides by the exit which list all allergens separately and gives you a list of EVERYTHING that's gluten free in the store. You cannot do better!
Almost, but not quite. Be careful as many GF items that are labelled GF have written in small print ; prepared in a facility that also processes wheat/gluten! So disappointing that they do this. So don't just grab something labelled GF. READ the ingredients and small print!
