Trader Joe's gluten-free Cookies
0

15 posts in this topic

Has anyone else tried Trader Joe's gluten-free Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies? They were recommended to me by an employee who does not have gluten issues but said he buys them because they taste so great. And they do! I am not a cookie fan at all but bought some for my daughter to try and I decided to taste them too. OMG! They taste as good as the real deal. I told my husband I don't think you could eat the regular cookie and this one and taste a difference. Even the texture is good and we all know that oftentimes it's the texture of the baked goods that give the gluten-free content it's reputation as being nasty. And at $2.69 a dozen, I did not think the price was so terrible either. BTW, their chewy, moist gluten-free snickerdoodles are good too.

Yes, I like the chocolate creme brule cups, too! I haven't seen those particular cookies at my local TJ's, but I've tried their wonderful tasting gingersnap cookies. Unfortunately, though, they glutened me twice (yeah, I thought I'd try another bag, hoping that it had been something else that had glutened me). So...I got glutened twice out of four bags. That's a very bad batting average.

However, different manufacturers are involved with the products at TJs, and perhaps the maker of the cookies you like are a lot more careful than the makers of the gingersnap cookies. I'm only providing this info to warn everyone about TJ's gluten-free gingersnaps.

If you check out my post from yesterday regarding the CC issue at local grocery store under the 'coping with' thread, you might consider that the CC may have happened on the package rather that in it. I did notice that the gluten-free cookies at TJ's are all place together with toxic products right next to them.

That is one issue that I have with TJ's.They don't have a dedicated section for their gluten-free products, which makes it harder to find them and more difficult to trust in them as being safe. Hmmmmmmm...I think I feel another e-mail coming on......

Yes, I found your posting on cc very interesting. It's possible that the bags of gluten-free cookies have somehow touched products containing gluten. These particular cookies can be found at my local TJ's above the freezer and next to the chocolates and nuts, and I believe they do this to keep them separated from gluten-containing products (but, then, who knows their true purpose in doing so?).

Ours are in the same place but there were toxic products right along with them. I had to very carefully read the packaging to find the little 'g' symbol for gluten free. When I am in a hurry, I don't have the time to sift through all of the merchandise to find things that are safe for me to eat so I don't shop at TJ's very often. Also, while they may be placed next to the chocolates, etc, that does not mean that they were shipped with the chocolates and other gluten-free stuff. Besides, it's almost always really busy and the aisles are narrow so I don't feel like I can take the time I want to read the labels carefully. It reminds me of a 70's bodega or little corner market. They have nice things, I just want a little more space and time to look them over. :rolleyes:

In general it's cheaper than a lot of natural food places. But it truly depends on what your buying, some items are better priced than others. But overall, good prices.

TJ's has great prices in Indy. Love that store.

I tried these yesterday and was extremely sick this morning. I didn't eat anything new yesterday, so I'm thinking it must be the cookies. Anyone else get sick from these?!

    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
