Calgarians...i Am Jealous!

Recommended Posts

I just got back from a visit with my parents in Calgary, and I have to say, after living in Moose Jaw for so long, the amount of gluten-free foods available at the local Safeway and Sobey's close to my parents' house was awesome.

My new favourite is the "PURE" cookies. They are a local to Calgary company, and they make the best chocolate chip cookies ever. My mother even managed to turn them into a crust for a mud pie (which I have been craving since dx).

Next, we found Community foods on 61st ave SW, and they had fresh baked gluten-free breads ( i got the quinoa rasin) and also carried several other loaf varities and many baked goods and fozen entrees. I was also tolds there that If it had gluten in it, they could find it without. :D

It's a shame you lost Splitt, because it closed before I had a chance to check it out.

Yeah Calgary.....my white hat's off to you!

What we have here is nothing compared to BC and to vastly much smaller cities than this one. You should see the stuff and restaurants in Victoria. BC is who I am jealous of, so jealous I intend to get my act together and devise a way to move there.

Ryan, I agree. If it wasnt for Randi I wouldnt have known some gluten-free products even existed (some stuff thats made in Calgary). Even things its hard to find available to buy in Saskatchewan was stocked up in Calgary. Ryan, go to Safeway in Regina...you will find a lot of gluten-free stuff there!

I talk to a girl who lives in BC now, she eats gluten-free stuff herself because there in the stores its stocked like regular food. That'd be a dream!
