Gluten Free - Day 3

Day three.

Had lunch - Cinnamon Chex cereal, and that didn't make me sick.

After work, Hubby and I went to Wegman's to see what they had. Thankfully, a lot of the gluten free products are all in one spot. However, the Wegmans brand stuff is throughout the store. Will have to go back when it's not so crazy/busy.

We bought a few things, a couple of which we tried tonight.

1. Schar Rolls, Classic White - Um...nope. The taste was okay, but the texture of these was too squishy for me, and they were very dry. Pan fried in butter they might be nice, or tossed on the grill. Rather pricey - paid $5.99 for 4 rolls.

2. Foods by George Gluten Free Pizza - Yeah, another no. It wasn't *bad*, but if you're craving pizza, this won't curb your desire. The crust was okay - I liked the crispier parts better, but the blend of cheese was meh. I put pepperoni on mine, which helped a little, but not much. Maybe it's just my oven, but the crust didn't bake evenly either. The outside was crispy, the inner part mushy. If I'd left it in any longer, though, the outer part would've burned. Quite pricey, considering it's the size of a Pizza Hut Personal Pizza and costs $6.29

3. Crunchmaster Multi-Seed Crackers - YUM! I love these! Crunchy and nutty. It's like whole wheat bread in a cracker, but gluten free. Paid $2.69 for a 4.5 oz bag.

4. Glutino Gluten Free Pretzel Twists - I couldn't try these because they have sea salt (I'm allergic to it), but Hubby got them for himself, and said they're not bad, although they tasted like they'd been soaked in sea salt. Not a great pretzel, but a decent pretzel. "Would definitely fix a case of the munchies!"

None of which made me sick! :-D


  1. I've been gluten free for over 2 years now. Glutino brand is good. Love their version of Oreos and some of their other cookies aren't bad.

    Have you tried Udi's brand yet? They make fantastic, gluten free bagels and breads, they even have a pizza crust (which is OK, I guess).

    We get some of the gluten free at Whole Foods, some at Trader Joe's and Meijer also surprisingly enough has a gluten free area that is good.

  2. We did get some of the Glutino oreos, but haven't tried them yet. I'm not terribly fond of real Oreos, so they're more for Hubby than me. I don't think I've tried Udi's yet. I'm familiar with Trader Joe's - I have a friend who lives near one, and could probably send me stuff. I didn't think of having her look there, for some reason. I'm hopeful to get up to Ithaca or one of the bigger cities where they have some diversity, and see if I can find more stuff.
