Trish in Canada

O.k..... So I Have To Brag

Recommended Posts

O.K. the Dominion grocery store by my house in Mississauga (ON, Canada) is carrying gluten-free items!!! This makes everything sooooo much easier. They started renovating the store during summer. Last week I went into the store and there was a bunch of Bob's Red Mill gluten-free flours in the baking section. I was jumping up and down in the aisle, lol. I walked throgh the store and found gluten-free breakfast bars in the snack section too. Then today I decided to walk through the frozen foods section and what did I find? Kinnicinik (spelling?) bagels, bread, hamburger buns, english muffins, waffles... I am in heaven!!! I nearly cried.... I was soo happy. I just finished eating a sesame seed bagel with almond-cashew butter... yum! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Congrats Trish! I get excited too as my supermarket in the area is beginning to carry gluten free items. They now carry the Bobs gluten free.. but they mistakenly but all the gluten free flours on the shelf.. right next to a bag of Bobs Vital Wheat Gluten. UMMMM .. ok they arent fully informed yet. My b/f works for the company and is a major advocate of gluten free food for me.. and he will be mentioning that shortly!

Again Trish.. Congrats!! :D I hope they get bigger and bigger for you!!!

Which Dominion in Mississauga??? The one at Applewood Plaza doesn't from what I could see. I asked a girl working in the aisle and she started backing away from me like I had some sort of contagious disease....

That's great Trish! My Zehr's started up a whole gluten-free section when reorganizing a few months ago. But because I really can't eat any of those I make myself sick eating them sometimes, it's just too tempting.

You know Stephanie, I don't think they put those things together by mistake. My Sobee's store has all the Bob's Red Mill together too, whether they are gluten-free or not. They have them because it makes money, not because they actually care for people with celiac disease.

My Zehr's store also has gluten-free items and other diet items side by side. All they think is 'diet', and MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!, not how they can really be helpful.

Even my health food store, which started carrying gluten-free food last year, has those items together. And the owner is supposed to be a nutritionist and does consultations! I'd never recommend her to anybody with celiac disease, that's for sure.

Must be nice :P Someone in Saskatchewan needs to get the brains of anyone east and west of us so I too can someday find all the gluten-free stuff i eat at a local store, and dont have to travel at least 2 1/2 hours to buy food :lol:
