Easier and easier ...

Aldi has a new line of gluten-free products!

I have to admit that I’m not a very good consumer advocate. I don’t often take the time to write to companies about their products—either to complain or to compliment.  But this week I made an exception and wrote to Aldi to compliment them for bringing out their new gluten-free line of LiveGfree products on a trial basis and to encourage them to please, please keep it up!

While I have found that I usually function better if I avoid all gluten, grains, and even sugar, many people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance can happily consume foods containing those ingredients, which are contained in most of the LiveGfree offerings. How wonderful for Aldi shoppers to be able to buy GF products such as cornbread, pizza, or pancake mixes, cookies, pasta, and even gluten-free chicken nuggets, under one roof without having to traipse all over town!

I hope Aldi will continue to stock this new line—and I hope that gluten-avoiders everywhere will take the time to thank (and to patronize) the many stores and restaurants that are attempting to make life easier for us. 

(By the way, thanks to my friends and family who tipped me off to Aldi’s new products! I love to hear about your discoveries!)
