Oh, have fun! Around here Whole Foods has Glutino, Udi's, Rudi's, Kinnikinnick, Tinkyada, Mary's Gone Crackers plus all the (expensive) stuff from their own dedicated gluten-free bakery. They also have their own 365 Brand rice crackers that are cheap.

Some of my favorites are:

Glutino bagels (Udi's are good too)

Glutino cinnamon raisin bread

Rudi's whole grain bread

Whole Foods brand scones - they make cranberry and almond and usually have one or the other

Udi's cinnamon rolls

Udi's muffins (they are just like gluten muffins - sweet and huge!)

Kinnikinnick donuts - I like the chocolate covered

Glutino pretzels

Glutino table crackers (the little square boxes)

365 brand rice crackers

Tinkyada brown rice spinach pasta

I saw the cinnamon rolls on their web site and was hoping they tasted good because they sounded soooo good! Thanks for all the tips on the other ones :)

Besides the usual gluten-free substitutes for bread and pasta, I really enjoy Whole Food's frozen Indian dinners in the freezer section. Their Tiki-Masala is one of the best that I've had, and I've tried a bunch of other brands. I know my local store also has a large gluten-free seafood section, so look for that if you want battered fish, shrimp, or crab cakes. Also a good place to find gluten-free soy sauce.

I was finally able to go to whole foods. I was VERY disappointed! They didn't have much of what their list said they did besides the naturally gluten-free stuff :( The stuff they had in stock I can get at my local grocery store for much cheaper.

That's really odd. Did you ask someone for the gluten-free section? My Whole Foods has a couple big sections in the freezer with all the gluten-free baked goods.

Aw, that's too bad. We've run into the much cheaper issue, but our whole foods was a pain in the butt to find gluten-free foods at. They have a gluten free section, but then they only put SOME of their gluten free foods there. The others are hidden around the store. And sometimes, I have no freaking clue why they picked the sections they picked for things. Like, gluten-free chocolate chips weren't in the gluten-free section OR with the other chocolate chips. They were with some peanut free stuff off by itself at the end of a row because they were also peanut free. <_<

So far, I have yet to be to a whole foods that has a well organized gluten-free section, and I've been to whole foods in 7 different states....as of two days ago, LOL.

EXACTLY! I had to hunt around for things. I litterally had to go up and down every asile which was a pain. The staff was helpful in finding things for me, but I can't give them a list of things for them to find if I don't know really know what it is they have in the first place. They do have a list of gluten-free stuff but it has a ton of naturally gluten-free stuff on it as well which makes the list 20 pages long and too much to sort through for me. I guess I'll just stick to good ole' run of the mill grocery store jewel osco (aka albertsons).

Against the Grain baguettes!! omg, they taste almost like what I remember a gluten one tasting like. They are SO yummy. At my WF they're in the frozen bread section. I can't buy this anywhere else in town. -- Also Glutino crackers. I love these because they are almost like regular Ritz-type crackers, not the slippery rice cracker texture. I can buy these at one other store near me besides WF. -- I also love the buffet area because WF is so good about labeling every single thing.

Other than those things I personally can find anything else cheaper somewhere else. But, for you that depends on where you live.

Gluten Free Enviro - Kids AMAZON Frosted Flakes. So yummy, I could sit and eat a whole box. I know it's marketed for kids but once I tasted my nephew's I was hooked.
