We shop at Target 2 to 3 times a month. We love the snack bar because we can get nachos, popcorn, diet lemonade and daughter can get a hot dog with no bun.

But today? There was NO snack bar! Just some signs saying they are remodeling and there is fresh produce coming.

Now I don't know if this means we are getting a proper grocery section or not. They do currently have a few aisles of shelf stable stuff and some refrigerated and frozen stuff. But I am pretty sure it is not the whole line that a Target with a proper grocery would sell. And it looks like they just started the remodel.

So I have a couple of questions.

If your Target has a grocery... Does it also have a snack bar? I would love for that to come back. We usually stop there after Costco. And after all that walking through Costco I am ready for a snack and a drink. Yes I know Costco has a snack bar but it's not as gluten-free friendly as the one at Target it or was.

And the other question... Do they sell any gluten-free products? I can currently get some things that are gluten-free, but do they have any specialty type things? Like gluten-free pasta or flour?

Thanks! This is a good thing. Now we can alternate our shopping between Target and Winco. Each one has a Costco nearby.

We have 3 " Super Target". The have a full grocery with produce. It has some gluten-free pasta, cereal, cookies, flours, frozen dinners, etc. They are mostly spread around with the other pasta, etc. We have a full snack bar, bakery, deli counter , pharmacy & Starbucks. It's a full grocery but unlike the regular large groceries, it is a bit limited. For example, it might have 2 brands of canned beans & the grocery has 5. The prices are better than the grocery. For example, Newmans Marinara sauce is about $2 at Target, $1.85 at Walmart but $4.50 at the grocery. Plus I use a Target Visa card & get 5% off my total.

We have one regular Target with limited groceries. It is smaller than the others. All the Walmarts here are expanding & remodeling to have a full or mostly full grocery.

My Target just did this remodeling thing to add an almost-full grocery store. They did keep the snack bar, just spruced it up a bit. The grocery section now sells just about everything in a regular grocery store, just not all the different varieties. I don't buy produce there because I didn't think it looked great, plus they sell a lot of it "per piece" rather than "per pound", which often makes it more expensive. On the other hand everything else is cheaper. Cereal especially. That's where I stock up on all our cereal.

Mine also has a ton of gluten free things -- oatmeal, flours, baking mixes, cookies, etc. I found gluten free graham crackers which I've never seen anywhere else. There's a kind of frozen waffle that's gluten free -- I forget the brand but it's buckwheat. Very yummy. And best of all I discovered a new bread! It's Glutino "Harvest Corn". But it's not crumbly corn bread like we'd eat with chili. This is regular bread, but just made from corn. It's a bit different texture than say Udi's, but I love it toasted in the morning. It has a nice crunch.

I'm really happy with the Target food section now!

Thanks! This sounds like a good change then!

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
