Kool-aid Jammers Drinks

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Are Kool-Aid Jammers drinks gluten-free? I checked the Kraft Canada gluten-free list, and Jammers aren't part of the beverage section. I don't have a package right now, but I know after hockey today the drink part of the snack will be Jammers and will be offered to my gluten-free son.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Linda!

I just happen to have a box right here since I went to the Great Canadian Superstore today and bought about 8 boxes (the boxes of 10 were on sale for $1.88) When you have four kids going to school, you go through alot of these!!

Anyway, it is from Kraft, so we know that they would list anything we aren't supposed to have.

The ingredients for the Grape are:

Water, Glucose-fructose, pear juice concentrate, citric acid, artificial flavour, ascorbic acid, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, sodium citrate, colour, calcium disodium EDTA (B140A).

The ingredients for the New Cherry 10 Calories ones are:

Water, apple juice concentrate, citric acid, artificial and natural flavour, ascorbic acid, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, sucralose, colour, acesulfame-potassium, calcium disodium EDTA (B160A) (contains 25 mg of sucralose and 10 mg of acesulfame-potassium per 200 ml serving).

I think based on that they are okay......

Thanks Karen!

I snagged the box while the big kids were on the ice and I figured the same thing - it's Kraft, nothing suspicious so he was happy...even though the other kids were having Rice Krispie squares, and he'd already eaten his gluten-free Envirokids bar while they were playing. He kept saying, Mom, I'm hungry. He'd already had a bag of popcorn, and he said the machine was out of order and there was other food there, but he wasn't allowed to have it. I said that was great that he knew he wasn't allowed and in future, don't eat everything all at once, save some stuff for later.

Best part of my week was heading to health food store and finding Envirokids bars on for $3.79/box. I bought a case (6 boxes) of both chocolate and berry. I thought Ty's eyes would pop out of his head!

Wow! That's cheap! I just bought two boxes today (berry and peanut butter) @$5.79/box! It is a very rare treat for me. I also bought two packages of El Peto's butter tarts - they are $6.79/pkg of 6 tarts, but they are to die for!!!!

The usual price at Co-op is $5.29, $4.99 at Safeway, I've never seen them at Sobey's or Superstore. Ty usually has one for an afterschool snack. We took a couple of boxes over to Gramma's house in case of a snack emergency as well (like when everyone else is having cookies and she doesn't have any gluten-free). I was quite impressed with the health food store (Amaranth in Arbour Lake, NW Calgary for all you Calgarians lurking out there) because the prices on the Envirokids bars, most cereal and the Tinkyada pasta are all less expensive than the grocery store. I saw the words Health food store and equated it with dollar signs, but not true. The Tinkyada (all shapes, 300g) is $3.29 vs. $3.89 at Safeway.

Enjoy your butter tarts!
