1. Although Frito Lay has a long list of stuff that is gluten free most is produced in a shared facility and the risk of CC is high. If you go to their gluten free list they do state that at the very bottom. The only products of thiers that haven't given me off and on CCings are the plain chips and Fritos.
2. Yes Rice Krispies and the treats have gluten. They use barely malt. I heard they may be coming out with a gluten free rice crispies though I don't know when and it will say gluten-free on the box. Chex cereals are gluten free.
3. I like Udi's and it is often on sale for about $3.50 at my local Wegmans. I also like Grainless Baker and Kinnickinnick will do if they are out of the others. Kinni also makes a 4 pack of pizza crust that I find nice to keep on hand. Kinni stuff is available by mail order but it does have to be kept frozen until used. I've never checked to see if the Udi's and GB can be ordered in bulk but maybe someone else will know.
4. I don't know about mail order entrees but at a larger Wegmans close to me they have a selection of Glutenfreeda items. I buy the burritos and those are about $1.79 and with a bowl of rice they make an okay meal. Dinty Moore Beef stew is another staple that is pretty cheap, the ones in the can are marked gluten-free. I also get Jimmy Dean's Breakfast Skillets with potatoes, peppers and onions and either sausage or bacon. They are about $5 a bag and for one person will make up to 4 or 5 meals. They come in a bag and you brown them and add a scambled egg.
I also do a lot of rice and beans and veggies or make a meatloaf and freeze part for another day. Amy's does make some gluten free dinners but some of us have had issues with CC with them.
Thank you for an awesome reply. I truly appreciate it.
I really thought Doritos had Gluten, my sister tried telling me they didn't. Her 4 y/o has celiac and she's letting her eat Doritos.
She claims their website states they are gluten-free. I couldn't find it online.
Thanks for clearing it up. I know several of the variety' clearly state they contain wheat.
Thought I should share this info with all of you:
MY ONLY GROCERY STORES are: KROGER, IGA, WALMART SUPERCENTER.
Not much variety, ha ha!
