So, I went shopping for a few things at Whole Foods last night and as I was scanning the pre-made fish and chickens I spotted Gluten free chicken nuggets!!! I was so excited, I called everyone I know. Granted they are dinosaur shapes and made for kids, (I am 27) and I haven't tried them yet, but I left the store with a big smile on my face. :D They said "Gluten Free" really big on the package. I also checked the ingredients and they look good to me. So, that is what I am having for dinner tonight. Will let you guys know how they are tomorrow!!!

That would be WellshireKids -- ours come in a plastic ziploc-top "bag" so maybe you are looking for the wrong kind of package? My son thinks they are too spicy, but otherwise they are wonderful :)

I can't get them to order them at my local Whole Foods, but I've tried...
Wellshire Farms is not currently taking internet orders either! So I have pretty much given up on finding them right now. I figure when I go on vacation maybe I'll find them...Glad to know that at least some people have been able to find them and that they like them.

God bless,

So, I looked and you guys are right, they are made by Wellshire Farms. Honestly, I tried them last night and did not think they tasted good at all. They weren't crunchy (I made them in the oven as directed) and they didn't really taste like chicken. So, needless to say, I was a little disappointed after getting so excited about finding them. If anyone has any other suggestions on how to cook them please let me know!

The crunchiness issue is pretty common - even with non-gluten-free stuff. There are a couple things to do:
1. Let them thaw a bit before they go in the oven.
2. Turn the oven on higher than the directions.
3. Bake them a bit longer than they call for - test by color (just avoid burnt).

But I can see the taste not being everyone's thing. I hear rice flour is good for making your own from scratch.
