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.

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?!

    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with road construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist to tell her what happened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I am hoping my report is amended or new negative comments are not added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.

      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this " Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum. Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.   I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
