A Taste Of Thai Peanut Noodles

Recommended Posts

Dear Gluten-Free Friends,

I got very ill the other week and could not figure out why. I knew I had been glutened. Well, I discovered it may have been the Thai Peanut Noodles from A Taste of Thai. Dad brought them home and read the label before picking them up.

He did not read the second label on the box he picked up behind it.

The boxes were identical, and the first was labeled gluten-free. As I was putting them away, I read the ingredients as usual. One box had wheat in it! Dad could not believe it, because they were in the exact same packaging! I always read things before eating them. So, I was thinking if these things are made in the same facility and just do not have a warning, cc is a good possibility. I am mad! :angry: I wanted to warn others in case they did not know.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

I believe they have changed them all now to having wheat in them. The older boxes are gluten-free as the newer ones are not. I unfortunately have 2 of the new boxes I cannot eat. I figured that out about 2 months ago. I was PO'd person.

Dear sparkles,

I will contact them this week and see what they say. I have a bad feeling they were made in the same facility as the ones with gluten. :unsure: Thai Kitchen makes some great ones, but they have been nowhere to be found as of late. Wal-Mart does not carry the same products all of the time. I will let you know what they company says after I call them.

Dear Generic,

This is such a bummer! :( Just what we need! More things that we cannot eat! :angry: You are probably right about this. If they just began putting gluten in them, then only the older packages are safe.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

Dear jennyj,

I love them, too! I was so upset when I noticed the wheat! :( These are so filling! They keep me satisfied. Thai Kitchen is not always available. Wal-Mart carries on thing one week, then you may not see if for months.

I also am VERY bummed about this change. I went to buy some more noodles about a month ago and noticed the "new" ingredient (wheat). BLEH!! I LOVED those noodles. They were SOOOOO yummy. I just don't understand why they have to go and add wheat to them!! BOOO!!!

Dear Jessica,

I know, I could not believe they changed them! They are great the way they are! Maybe we could start a petition or something to get the wheat taken out? What do you guys think? Or, perhaps I should write a letter explaining how many people will no longer be purchasing their product due to the change.

Dear jennyj,

The noodles are addictive! I love them! Maybe writing the company will help fix this. These things are one of the few things that actually fills me up. Not many foods do that for me. I am almost always hungry!

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

I tried calling them the other day, it was a long drawn out process and I got annoyed and hung up. I guess I may have to try calling again when I have more time!! I LOVED those noodles.

Dear Jessica,

The noodles are so good! Why on earth would they change them? I assume it is a cost issue of some kind. Still, I am determined to find a way to let them know how I feel! I am going to point out that they are reducing their clientele by adding the gluten. There are 3 Million Celiacs in our country, on top of 10 Million more people who are gluten intolerant. If they know anything about marketing, they will change their mind!

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl
