I don't know if many of you have even heard of alidi's grocery store, but if you have then maybe you can help. I don't know if some of their products are gluten free or not. I don't remember a number to call, so I am just curious if anyone can help.

I've heard of Aldi's but it was in Germany... not the US... (they don't have them on the west coast of the US)

*rumor alert*

I've read they are related to Trader Joe's.... but that TJ's doesn't advertise this fact because Aldi's is more of a discount place and TJ's, though it is fairly inexpensive, wants to appeal to a different demographic. I read this online about two years ago when I was looking up Aldi's on a nostalgia kick as I had shopped at the one next door to my friend's apartment in Mainz, Germany.

On edit - it's no rumor. Here's a link about it: http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/conte...17/b3880016.htm

We have an Aldi's in my town, but (this is SO stupid) I've never been in there because my husband's ex used to work there and I just think of her every time I see the place. (I know, I'm a moron!)

If they have any decent gluten-free stuff I'd be willing to check it out though. Do they have a website?

I just went to Aldi's with my grandma. She shops there all the time. I found several products there in the frozen food section that clearly states "gluten free".

I like Aldi's but getting information from them about products is like pulling teeth! I've tried to get info about any of their products that "might" be gluten-free and I get no response... just told to talk to the manager in my local store, well, the manager in my local store knows NOTHING about gluten-free.

Our Aldi's has all these no-name products I've never heard of, but I have found several things that are gluten-free just by checking the labels. They have pudding mixes and chicken rice soup, for example, that don't list any nasty ingredients like modified food starch or hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and everything is so cheap! But it's a different shopping experience than the usual grocery store in many ways. Bring your own bags and a quarter to rent a cart.

Can you tell us what the names of the gluten free products are that you bought?

I bought the Grandessa seasoned pototoe wedges and beef jerky. The thing about aldi's is that they don't carry name brands. But the few items I did pick up either said gluten free or does contain gluten.

I went to Aldi's with my husband today... he loves it there, so I got the phone number for the main office from the manager there. Well, actually it was for the local main office, then they gave me the number for the corporate office... I called them today and got someones voice mail after being passed around to four different departments, lo and behold she actually called me back.

Bad news was that they cannot do a list of any of their products that may be gluten free, the are simply a distributor and work with a lot of different manufacturers and suppliers change things too often for them to have any kind of list. She said they've had MANY calls on this and have tried to figure out at least for the last two years how to do it, but they simply can't. What she suggested that I do is when I am in the store, make a list of any products that I am interested in and mail that list to the address on the package. They will then forward the request onto the manufacturers and then the manufacturers should get back to me with the information.
