Bob Evan's Brand Products (In Stores)

6 posts in this topic

I have been eating Bob Evan's Mashed Potatoes thinking nothing of it because on the allergy list it does not say anything about wheat. It has in bold....

allergens: milk

Well, I was sick and couldn't figure this out. So I decided to check everything in the house that I had eaten to find out what was causing it.

Lo and behold the Bob Evan's mashed potatoes had in their ingredient list in regular (blending with the others) list wheat.

WHY DID THEY NOT PUT THAT IN THE ALLERGEN AREA THEN?!? Grrrrr. It was my fault for not checking the ingredients but me being so trusting figured they would play it safe since the milk was in the allergen list and trusted them to put wheat there too.

Lesson Learned: Even if it is not in the allergen list, check ingredients.

Two thumbs down for Bob Evan's not posting that with the allergens however. Never again.

Packaged foods are the same way, the manufactorer is allowed to list the ingredient "buried" in the ingredient list, or in an allergen statement at the end, their choice. Always read carefully!

Oops... I don't eat at the restaurant. I mean the mashed potato boxes you get at the grocery store by Bob Evans. They are in the fridge sections.

Stay away from them. Wheat is in them.

But that is very interesting that they were so rude to you! Because I have had a similar experience elsewhere. Honestly, ignorance is not always bliss.

Does anyone know if their mashed potatoes still contain wheat (refridgerator)? My girls came home on Monday from their other home and haven't felt right since. My youngest asked about the Bob Evans and I can't find anything else on-line.

The company Bob Evans, seems to have become enlightened since these posts were written. I called them and asked about their mashed potatoe products that are sold in supermarkets. They told me that their original, cheddar and Texas are gluten free. The sour cream and chives variety are NOT gluten free. They added that their bacon, all sausage (except the beer brat), ham cubes, ham steaks and Texas chili are also gluten free. These are supermarket products. I did not ask about what is sold in restaurants. I did suggest to them that their web site should contain a list of gluten free products so that you wouldn't have to call.

You are very kind to provide an update, but this original thread is 5 years old and the original poster may not see it. Just so you know! :) Cheers, IH
