OH HAPPY DAY!!! I accidentally stumbled upon a teriyaki jerky that uses gluten free soy sauce. The name of the jerky is Krave Jerky and I found it at Walgreens. Not only is it gluten free but it tastes great also. They had a couple different flavors but I picked up the Smoky Grilled Teriyaki favor that uses natural pork.
Now in full disclosure, the package does not advertise the jerky to be “Certified Gluten Free”. It does list the teriyaki sauce that is used to be gluten free and the rest of the ingredients do not have gluten as well.
The next time I am at Walgreens I will be sure to try the other flavors as well. You can visit Krave Jerky’s website at KraveJerky.com.
Kellogg’s has recently released gluten free Rice Krispies. This is great since I haven’t had Rice Krispies since going gluten free.
On the box Kellogg’s states that they use brown rice since brown rice is naturally gluten free. Either way we all know that brown rice is generally better for you then white rice so that makes these Krispies even more attractive.
The best thing about the new box of Rice Krispies is that they include the recipe to make gluten free Rice Krispies treats. That is something else that I haven’t has in a long time. This is another snack I can stuff into my backpack for a quick bite.
It is nice to see more and more companies jumping on the gluten free bandwagon.
While going to Sprouts the other day in Round Rock I noticed a candy store in the same complex that I had to check out. I had been craving chocolate covered almonds from See’s Candies in California but unfortunately See’s isn’t in Texas. The place I found was Lammes Candies.
The store looked similar to a See’s Candies store and sure enough they had chocolate covered almonds. I purchased some for my wife and I and also sampled a toffee nut bar and left.
Half way through the toffee nut bar I thought “I wonder if this has gluten in it?”. I had not thought of it before eating because I was so excited about my discovery. I went back inside the store and asked the cashier and she said that they were working on a list of items that were gluten free but did not have it available yet.
When I got home I decided to check out their Facebook page that the cashier had also told me about. I posted on their page inquiring about gluten in their products. Here is the exchange:
Me: I just discovered your Round Rock store today! I was wondering if you guys had a list of which items are gluten free? I checked your website and did not find anything.
Them: Hi Dan, we’re glad you found us! All of our items are gluten-free except our chocolate-covered pretzels. Thanks for your interest!
Groovy! That means I can have good chocolate candies anytime I want.
I can’t wait until they have their chocolate covered strawberries when they have them!
Here is a link to their Facebook page and to our exchange about gluten.
