Recently the King Soopers (aka City Market, Kroeger) in my area have added a freezer of gluten-free products. Since my diagnosis almost a year ago they have started flagging gluten-free items in the aisles (not because of me obviously) but it is nice to see them doing this.

The Freezer they ahve in the frozen foods section is a lot of kinnickkinnick items. Some Ihad not seen in stores before. I bought their 6 pack of cinnamon-sugar donuts. Finally had them this morning, they were great! I had yet to try a good donut, this beat my expectations!

If this trend continues I hope to be able tos top shopping at three different stores every time I go grocery shopping. Though I will admit, until Whole Foods ($2.49) and King Soopers ($2.29) can meet the $1.89 per box price on Vans Wheat Free Original Waffles at Super Target I will continue to buy my waffles there.

I also live in Colorado, Colorado Springs. Have you heard of the Udi bread? Its supposed to be the wonder bread for the celiac world. The owner, Anne I believe is her name is launching it at the kings supers on Austin Bluffs and Academy. Haven't made my way up there yet but heard it is unbelievable. The vice president of kroger is celiac and got tired of having to go to other stores to buy what she needs so this is why they are so into this right now, which is good for all of us :)

I got it wrong so wanted to correct myself. She is an assistant manager in Colorado Springs and has made alot of progress in helping grocery store awareness. Go Pam! Here is an insert from the "Rocky Mountain Post"

]Five years ago, Pam Jones was down to 87 pounds before a doctor finally diagnosed her stomach ailments correctly. Jones, an assistant store manager for King Soopers in Colorado Springs, has celiac disease, a digestive malfunction brought on by abnormal reaction to glutens. She must avoid such foods as wheat, rye and barley.

As more people are diagnosed - some 3 million people suffer from it - companies are stepping up to the plate. First, small restaurants/ bakeries such as Deby's Gluten Free Gourmet in Denver began to find solutions, now the "big guys" are getting on board.

At a media launch last week, King Soopers introduced its expanded line of gluten- and wheat-free products. Jones was instrumental in getting the program off the ground, approaching her employer when she found that she was having trouble finding the gluten-free products that she - and her customers - were looking for. She is also responsible for the gluten free labeling in the aisles!

Thanks Kathy, that does remind me, in the freezer, there was a section for Udi's bread, but it was empty. I was actually excited to see that. Udi's used to cater a lot of lunches at a former employer of mine. I always loved their bread in my pre-diagnosis days. :)

I live in Arvada and the store at 80th and Wads is pretty bad about gluten-free products, but the store at 80th and Sheridan kicks butt and has TONS of Kinnickinnick items!!! I was able to do all my shopping there rather than stopping at Vitamin Cottage. I do like to pop into VC every now and then because they have the new gluten-free cereal by Envirokidz (it is chocolate and PB puff cereal).

I've been very pleased with the Kroger trend!

Seriously . . . have you ever walked into Super Target and just gotten the waffles? You need to take into account that while you are there, you've picked up a new movie for the kids, some basket/organizer stuff because you are FINALLY going to clear off the computer desk, and look, they've got some towels and bedding on clearance . . . now how much did your waffles cost you?

:lol::lol:

You mean I am not alone in Colorad Springs. Udi is awesome and I am so so happy that King Soopers is now open we were just there last night. Their sandwich bread is great and their blueberry muffins are like angelfood cake. Thanks to a friend of mine who is alwyas looking out for me she saw them in a King Sooper sale flyer one week and that is how I found out about them.

In regard to Super Target, keep in mind I am a guy, getting in and out of Target is not a problem for me. And I stand corrected, the Target prices are accurate, but I was JUST at whole foods and they are 2.99 a box for the waffles.

I have only seen the Vans Wheat Free waffles at Super Target not at a regular Target. :)

I just got some Udi's white sandwich bread, OMG. It is real bread, it is so good. I am saved.

I am, as I type this, eating an Udi's cinnamon roll! It's like a real cinnamon roll! I'm starting a new thread dedicated to Udi's!

Kroger's is very helpful I spoke with one manager and asked him regarding carrying my favorite breads Katz Challah bread and there sweets like the marble cake and they were very cooperative and said they will look into this so I hope they will get it in soon

    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      Are there any foods, like broth, that don't make your son feel sick?
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      I agree. As an adult its a little easier to withstand the rolling of eyes and exaggerated sighs from people who think you are over reacting and being too fussy.  My youngest has anaphylaxis to fish and seafood and people are incredibly understanding and careful - but it seems celiacs has become a "fad" due to gluten intolerant people removing credibility from true celiacs.  Adults can argue but kids are vulnerable. Socially its really isolating for them.    I totally relate to the waiting on endoscopy. For my very sick 12 year old the 8-9 weeks we waited for sheer hell and I felt I was feeding him rat poison. Now my 17 year old is waiting on his, booked for later this week.  Its a total nightmare waiting knowing you can start the healing if only you could stop feeding them gluten.  But I figure for future reference, having a solid diagnosis via biopsy is important. Good luck to you and your son.
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      Hugs to you and your daughter. My son and I are in the same boat, or at least,  paddling alongside your boat.  At their age being scrupulous about their diet is not only incredibly hard but socially isolating. Adults consider celiac people to be a pain so imagine what their young friends think.  Feeling so unwell and having no energy adds to their distress. And the thing is - I don't think at that age that they really understand that even the slightest bit of gluten will set them back badly.  I know my son is convinced one sweet won't matter. It really really sucks.  
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      No one in my wider family gets it, although my sister is certainly trying to understand. She gets that I will bring all food for my coeliac kids when we come for meals and is okay with that.    For other social events, I will suggest the meal is at my place so I can control the gluten.  But my biggest battle is my children's father (my ex husband) who refuses to get it, and thinks I am being stupid and trying to prevent him seeing V.  I have offered that V can visit but not eat nor stay the night.  Ex does not have the means or the brains to manage gluten free meals.    At this point it looks like I may need to go to court to get an order to prevent V from being forced to go and get glutened. I really really hope to avoid this, but its not looking good. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I guess it's the "natural flavoring" which throws me off. It could or could not contain gluten and it's in so many products. I haven't been on a gluten-diet for as long as you...6 years. I may have bee undiagnosed and untreated for more than 25 years since i had signs that went back to chidhood. Yes, I have balance/anxiety/neuro issues. I know anxiety is connected to damage in intestines, but I don't know for sure if celiac causes balance/neuro issues. I was already tested for brain ataxia, but I didn't get too far on that. Well, there wasn't an exact test, but the neurologist noted that I was walking straight or something on those grounds so I must not have it. I know studies have shown Transglutaminase 6 antibodies indicate gluten ataxia, butthat test is not yet available to the public.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
