  1. I haven't tried a lot of gluten free items since I try to stick with the naturally gluten free items and make things from scratch but these are my top 3 worst gluten free foods: 1. Ener-g rice bread - It was the first gluten free bread I tried. I made a sandwich with it and did not toast it. The bread fell apart completely and looked like sawdust. The few parts that didn't completely turn to powder didn't taste very good either. 2. Bob's Red Mill wonderful bread mix and Bob's red mill all purpose flour - all you can taste is a weird beany flavor. I made ginger snap cookies with the flour and they were just off tasting. Maybe I just don't like chickpea flour cause it's flavor overpowers anything else you put in the recipe. 3. Gluten Free Pantry chicken noodle soup- disgusting! It didn't have a broth consistency like chicken noodle soup is supposed to have. It was kinda thick. It didn't even taste like chicken and there was a grittiness mixed in there too. Not a good substitute for Campbell's, that's for sure. I will stick with making my own soup! Top 3 best gluten free foods I've tried (there are many more than this though) 1. Trader Joe's gluten free ginger snap cookies- so crispy and gingery. Yum! Too bad I have to drive so far to get to a Trader Joe's 2. Snyder's gluten free pretzels- taste like pretzels and have the right texture; nothing weird about them 3. Kinnikinnick multigrain bread- great for toast and sandwiches. There are sunflower seeds in it too. It reminds me of the oatnut bread I used to get.
  2. If you are very sensitive to gluten be careful with those mixes. I had the "gluten free" brownies from Betty Crocker and got a typical gluten reaction from it. There are several negative reviews on Amazon.com of people who had gluten reactions to Betty Crocker "gluten free" mixes.
  3. It sounds like Utah WIC doesn't provide as many options as Texas. I said card because Texas uses an EBT card instead of paper vouchers. If they do have a gluten free food package that should help clear up which items you can buy. The Kroger brand rice and corn chex say "a gluten free food" on the boxes here.
  4. I work for WIC in Texas. Did you get the gluten free food package on your card? That might make it easier to see what items are okay for you to buy. You can buy rice or corn chex cereal or gluten free Rice Krispies. Beans and peanut butter should be gluten free also.
