Gluten Free Licorice At Trader Joes

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was picking up some almond butter at Trade Joes today and then I was looking around at all of the other stuff and I hit upon the licorice.

I am not a crazy-for-sweets person but the one thing that I miss, deeply, is black licorice. I always loved licorice and it shocked me to know that it was made with wheat!!

So I looked at their licorice and the red and black both had wheat listed in their ingredients.

Then I looked at the scottie dog ones.

I didn't see wheat. I hugged the box to myself and grinned like an idiot.

Just to make sure I asked at the desk. They gave me a printed list of their gluten-free items and it was on there!!

I was soooooooooooo happy and I happily bought it.

The ingredients are:

Corn syrup, sugar, modified corn and potato starch, coconut oil, carnauba wax, anise oil, caramel color, licorice root extract. Made on equipment shared with soy.

It's a happy day today :)

Is this a Trader's Joes product or is a brand that could be found elsewhere? I love black licorice and haven't been able to find any that is safe other than the black Jelly Belly Jelly Beans.

Raven:

It's a Trader Joes brand only it seems.

It is marked that way.

If you go up the the service counter too, you will find a handout that you can take away with you with all the gluten-free things that Trader Joes carries. They were very, very helpful at my local one.

If you have a TJ local to you, check it out.

It's not expensive at all and there is a fair amount in the box.

It's soooo tasty too!!

Luvs2eat:

Licorice has long had stomach soothing properties.

But I do think that you have to use the root to have it be most effective.

You can get licorice root tea.

Stash tea and yogi tea make amazing licorice teas.

I drink those when my stomach is not being cooperative.

Lovely, lovely stuff!!

Awwwwwwwwwwwww I'll have to see if I can find a Trader Joes on my trip to Boston in the fall. I haven't been back to Newport in ages so a detour through RI may be in order so I can bring home a case.

If I look up licorice scottie dogs on Amazon, I find this:

Gimbals-Fine-Candies-Licorice-10-Pound/dp/B000Z3V3LM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=grocery&qid=1271085888&sr=1-1

The modified food starch should be corn only.

And everything else is okay.

So that makes me wonder if you see scottie dog black licorice if it isn't all okay?

Something about scotties apparently :)

If you see it check it out. TJ may buy in bulk from a supplier and then repackage it??

Whole Foods (in Bellevue, WA anyway) carried a gluten free licorice. (It happens to be this one: fancy schmancy gluten-free licorice :P) (looks like that site has a number of gluten-free licorice candies.)

You are welcome, Raven :)

I also like the fact that the scottie dog licorice pieces are affordable!!

If you can't find them, send me an email.

I'll send you a box.

For a fellow black licorice nut :)

    Hi Wade, I use plain water to rinse foods.  I suppose it might be better to use a little Dawn dish soap or some such on fruit like apples that is waxed.  But I don't usually do that. It's a good idea to rinse foods off anyway to reduce germs.  You never know what kid has wiped his nose on an apple in the produce section!   Plus like Ennis said there is the wonderful in store bread bakery trend these days where they can have flour wafting through the air.  My local Kroger seems to have a pretty good ventilation system set up so most of the heat from baking is exhausted and probably most of the flour with it.  But you never know for sure.  People working on making bread may have flour on their uniform sleeves and spread it around.  Also the flour section is often messy with leaking flour bags spilling gluten around.  So the stuff can be present in different areas in a grocery store.  And get spread unintentionally.  The person stocking flour may be stocking candy the next hour. I don't think buying organic is a bad thing.  But I don't think it helps as far as avoiding gluten. The issue is cross-contamination of gluten on/in supposedly gluten free foods.  And that cross-contamination can happen to both organic and non-organic foods. It seemed to me that I was very sensitive to gluten exposure when I first went gluten-free.  Even slight amounts would make me sick.  You may find the same to be true for you.  I think that is because our immune systems are in high gear at first.  So even smelling bread baking or going through the bread isle can bother some people.  After a while on the gluten-free diet the immune system may calm down and not be so quick to react to minor exposures.  That can take some time to happen though, maybe years, Some other foods to watch out for and avoid at first are dairy and oats.  Many of us are lactose intolerant for several months after going gluten-free.  That may go away though.  And some of us are intolerant to oats like we are to wheat, rye, and barley.  Oats can also be cross-contaminated in the processing or harvesting.
