Duane Reade Goes Gluten Free

Hello all.  Sorry for my long break between my blog posts.  I have several exciting posts coming up, so definitely keep checking back.  You wouldn’t believe my amazement and excitement last week when I was waiting in line to check out at Duane Reade (a local New York drug store that is almost on every corner), and saw a little sign for double points for buying Duane Reade brand Gluten Free Ginger Snaps.  I had to go and find these gluten free treats, so I walked to the cookie aisle, and found this.  All of the gluten free ginger snaps were in the same place and on the same shelves as the regular gluten filled cookies.  I couldn’t believe that a drug store such as Duane Reade would be selling gluten free products with their own brand name.  After a quick look at the back of the package, and reading the ingredients it states that these are made from a flour blend including corn flour, chick pea flour, potato flour, tapioca, and rice flour.  Reading a little further down shows that these are manufactured in a shared facility with wheat products.  Then even a little further down it says, “Products are tested using the Elisa Method to ensure gluten free standards as determined by the world health organization.”  This is great news.  Now for what these ginger snaps look like and the taste…These are really tasty and I don’t love ginger snaps.  I even gave a couple to Mike and he really liked them.  This is just another step in the right direction for all of us who have celiac disease.  Hopefully these will sell well at Duane Reade and they will continue to come out with new products.
