This place isn't good for gluten free or health in general. They should be called Sugar Joe's because there is sugar in every single product. Today I went to the Trader Joe's in Westfield and a cashier was very nasty to me. When I reported to management the answer I got was "She was having a bad day." So, I have to be a scapegoat for her crap?! When my grandmother died, I was a waitress and I was nothing but NICE to people. And if DEATH isn't a bad day, I don't know what is!! Then I went to CORPORATE and they blew me off, like my complaint wasn't legitimate! I have no respect for management at Trader Joe's and the next time anyone mistreats me in their store they will hear from my lawyer! I did not need that stress! I am a heart patient!!!!
I love me some Trader Joe's! Of course they have tons of gluten-free products available here, and great produce, dairy, meats and booze. Also, gorgeous and inexpensive flowers and seasonal things like wreaths, pumpkins and ghords. We go every week. Love it.
So easy to shop here gluten free. The cashier been gave me a print out with all their gluten free items. You can get anything u need here, I'm also vegetarian and can get everything on my grocery list without spending too much!!
Excellent choices! Just go to the managers booth and they will give you a list of every gluten free item in the store. Or print the list on line and prepare your list ahead of time. Excellent helpful staff...
What would I do without this place? Seriously. The gf raisin bread is awesome. I eat it almost every morning for breakfast with cream cheese. The bagels are pretty good, but recently haven't been as good to be honest. They're more dry than they used to be and seem darker in color. Don't know what happened there. The gf white bread is more than acceptable to me for sandwiches. I like it way more than udis. The gf blueberry muffins are also wonderful. They taste like real actual muffins. I love them so much.
Gluten free options galore but pretty much all made in the same facility that processes wheat in way way or another... Not Good for celiacs
I am always disappointed that so many of their prepared foods that shouldn't be are made with wheat... including their frozen risotto, sweet potato fries, and even quinoa dishes! They do have some good options, but label reading is always a must, and so many things have cross-contamination warnings.
Used to be my favorite place to shop because I could go down the aisles and immediately see what was GF by the green tags. But they have removed the green tags and I once again have to read all ingredients intensely of everything and it's as difficult as any other store.
I disagree with the opinion that there aren't many gluten free options. They have gf pizza, gf chicken nuggets, gf Mac and cheese, gf cereals, gf breads, gf cupcakes, and gf chocolate cake. Additionally, they offer many sauces. If you have trouble with cow milk, they have a goat chedder cheese which is a great option if you are looking to melt cheese. They also have a Caesar salad dressing made with goat and sheep cheese.
my child is a little sad that she can't have everything in the store but we found some gluten free stuff and she loved it.
Love trader joes! They have so many options for people like me
Majority of their products are made on equipment shared with wheat. Also be careful of their handwritten labels stating products are gluten free. Must read the packing as often they have the warning that product was made on equipment shared with wheat.
Ok so 4 stars. Yes, they have plenty of GF options and fresh fruit and veggies but kind of annoying that some products "may have cross contamination" and are typically GF foods. I do appreciate the honesty and good prices
Being newly GF trader Joes will print a copy of each and every brand they carry that's GF. It really helped with the shopping
The food is so great last time some girl told me that the food smells like big juicy saggy hairy donkey balls
Trader joes has many tasty gf options. They have a list, just request from staff. One of my favorite breads, they have seasonal mixes. You can get great taco shells, soups as well as desserts, buns, bagels, cookies and excellent produce. They have a guarantee so if you don't like something return it and get your money back. I've done this once or twice with no problem.
Very helpful. Learned my son had celiac and they showed us how to find what is gluten free
A very nice variety of GF items
Not as many GF options as I had hoped. They do have GF cupcakes which is cool. I was hoping for a decent cracker but their's are just a bag of little crapy rice ones. They have those at the dollar store. their corn tortillas are those super thick yellow ones, not what I wanted either. For general GF products I thing walmart grocery has a larger selection.
I'd give a zero if I could. No GF section. No helpful people. They have u a list of all their gf which is basically all naturally occurring gf things save for 1 cereal, 2 soups and one gf frozen pizza. This place is awful and always packed so you're too rushed to read labels. Horrible!!! AVOID!!!!
TJs has many items that are gluten free but unfortunately a lot of their pre-packaged things could be made gluten free and they are not. Have to read the labels on everything. That said they have very reasonably priced and yummy gluten free bread. Just as good as Canyon Bakehouse
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.
