I hate having to search to find gluten free options. Although, to be honest, I have to count myself lucky/blessed in that there are now more gluten free options available than ever. WalMart is actually joining the bandwagon and bringing more gluten-free specific products to their store.
My daughter and I went to my local WalMart last Saturday to see their new gluten free demonstration and products. There was a small setup near the freezer section of the grocery side of the store, where Quaker’s PopChips and grilled cheese sandwiches made with Udis bread were being sampled. The two ladies there demonstrating were so sweet! I had a good time chatting with them, and I’m sure I thoroughly embarrassed and bugged Munchkin, who was with me, patiently waiting for me to do my shopping so we could go.
There were two places specific to gluten free that I saw. One is the freezer section. I was bummed out that so many items were sold out, but hey, when there’s demand, there’s demand, right? I was looking forward to purchasing an Udi’s pizza with uncured pepperoni, but I’ll have to try again next time. The other spot I found was in the bakery. There was one rack on the very bottom with fresh Udis bread, as well as some GF cookies. There were also signs for muffins and brownies that were not in stock.
I purchased myself one of those fresh loaves of Udi’s bread. It’s a new type, I think – Country Style Seeded Bread. I was so happy to be able to try it out that I made poor Munchkin pose for a picture, ha ha!
Anyway, I wanted to share this experience with you to let you know about the new gluten-free options available at WalMart. I was very excited, and thought my gluten free readers might be too! You’ll have to check out your local WalMarts to see if they’re carrying these as well. And if they are not, then let them know you want them!
