Hold on to your lattes, kids, Dunkin Donuts just made a major gluten-free announcement! Yes, the coffee and pastry giant is adding gluten-free items to their menu. By the end of the year, we will be able to order GF cinnamon-sugar donuts and blueberry muffins along with our joe. Dunkin Brands Group Inc., the company that owns the chain, tested these gluten-free offerings in some of its shops in Massachusetts. The response was so positive, the GF items are being Read More »

Philly is one of the most gluten-free friendly cities in the country. So much so, it’s been called “the first gluten-free neighborhood in the U.S.”
It takes a lot of components to come together to make a great GF city.
It helps if your state is no stranger to the gluten-free way of life. Earlier this year, Gluten Free Travel Site named Pennsylvania the “World’s Most Celiac-Friendly Destination.” We examined this accolade in Read More »

Just 70-some miles west of Philadelphia is Lancaster, home of outlets, Franklin and Marshall College, the Amish and Shoe Fly Pie. Sadly, it’s impossible to find gluten-free pies there, but never fear…just make your own!

You expect to find gluten-free food online and in health food stores and big grocery stores, but you never anticipate finding it in your local discount store. I was recently pleasantly surprised to find, among the curling irons and cat food, many GF products in Big Lots, the largest broadline closeout retailer in the U.S.
Big Lots has recently begun carrying several types of Bob’s Red Mill products, most of them gluten-free, and all of them much cheaper than they can be purchased on-line or in a grocery store. I bought Bob’s Gluten-Free Shortbread Cookie Mix and Pizza Crust Mix for 2.90 and a bag of Bob’s Cinnamon Raisin Bread Mix for 3.95. In my regular grocery store, these mixes run from 4.95 – 6.95. Big Lots also carries a few brands of GF pasta, all for under 2.00 per package. And you can always find Read More »

It’s always nice when you can find gluten free products in a “normal” grocery store; it’s downright exciting when a favorite regular-food brand puts out a gluten free food. Such is the case with Snyder’s of Hanover’s new Gluten Free Pretzel Sticks. After a couple of hiccups in getting the GF ball rolling, Snyder’s new pretzel sticks have been certified by the GFCO (Gluten Free Certification Organization) and each bag clearly shows the GIG (Gluten Intolerance Group) seal of approval. According to GFCO, their goals is to provide “a uniform system, using strict standards to certify a product gluten-free and enables people to easily identify GF foods with confidence.” Read More »
