Applegate Farms gluten-free Nuggets

Has anyone tried the Applegate Farms chicken nuggets yet? Any thoughts?

I have to order a case (I'm waiting until next month when they will be on sale, but the price is still about $50 for a case of 12) and I don't want to eat something disgusting for the next several months.

We've had them. Here is the review from this house:

My son (not Celiac) LOVED them. Prefers them to Bell & Evans.

My daughter (Celiac) thought they were OK but prefers Bell & Evans.

I thought they were good. I thought the outside coating was very good/tasty - better than the B&E. However, they are a processed/ground chicken (know what I mean?) on the inside and I do prefer the non-ground-up chicken like the B&E has.

. . . and as a reference point, all of us hated the Ian's chicken nuggets.

My husband and I both loved them. We both did not like Ians. I liked the dinosaur shaped ones by someone who's name I don't remember. My husband preferred the Applegate farms to all other brands. If we can find them we will be buying more Applegate Farms chicken nuggets. For some reason our store took the sign down when the last package was bought.

thanks--I think I will order them. I haven't tried any of the others just based on what every one says.

We are a very picky family of four and all of have to be gluten-free. I make my own, but you know sometimes you just crave something that is fastfood restaurant style. :lol:

. . . and on a side note . . . that's a decent price per box. I believe I paid $5.99 for a box at Krogers.

Side note: While researching these nuggets, I entered Applegate Farms lunch box contest and won. Today, I opened the door and there was this box from Applegate Farms. I'm thinking, were they on this forum and sent me a sample?? :lol:

Well, I opened the box and there was my prize and a handwritten note referring to my little memory to win the prize. Can you believe that? In the mass marketing of today? A handwritten note. That really makes my day. I'm definitely putting in an order for these nuggets. :)

Found a box of the gluten-free nuggets at Kroger today--my buddy in that dept. claims they've always had them--maybe someone keeps buying them before I get there, but they've never been there and I'm there about 3x a week.

Anyhowwww....these are delish!! I ripped open the box as soon as I got home and had one for breakfast just to taste. Really good and my son who always ordered the nuggets at fast food restaurants will be in heaven when he gets home.

On someone's blog, the husband said it tasted like chicken pot pie on the 1st bite and he's right.

Definitely do not taste gluten free.

I have not seen the Applegate farms Gluten-free nuggets. The B&E are my favorite. Ian's is terrible!!!!! I couldn't even hide them in dressing. Ian's fish sticks are bad too! If you are looking for affordable have you tried the Angel Food Ministry's allergy free box of chicken nuggets or strips. They are the cheapest I have found. Was thinking about ordering them for October. $25 for several pounds of breaded items but not sure how they taste:) They are a hand-up not a handout and anyone is welcome.

I just tried the applegate farm chicken nuggets and they tasted so good I was afraid that they put the regular ones in my gluten free box by accident!

I haven't seen these Applegate Farm ones anywhere! I am fortunate to have several grocery stores near me with gluten-free items so I'm going to have to pay better attention. Everyone in my house really likes the other Applegate Farms foods we've tried.

I used to buy the Wellshire Kids dinosaur ones for my kids, but both Earth Fare and Whole Foods stopped selling them. I haven't seen them anywhere else so we've gone back to Bell & Evans, which I prefer, but are pricier. My kids loved having dino nuggets though, just like their friends. They don't care for the Ian's (and neither do I), but they'll work in a pinch.

    • Thanks so much, friends!  JMG, I'll try to get hold of that licorice, almost everything I read gives it glowing reviews.  I miss Bertie Bassets licorice (it contains wheat) so it will be nice to have some licorice again.  Thanks Whitepaw for those ideas, I must admit I'm getting rather fed up with my low fat menu but it seems the best way to keep the pain at bay so it is nice to have something else to cook.  I don't know if I have picked up another intolerance, but you could be onto something there.  And I know what you mean icelandgirl, we've been through so many tests and treatments it all becomes a blur!  My doctor isn't expecting to see me again unless things aren't better within the month, but I might bring my gastro appointment forward if needs be. Actually, in the end yesterday didn't go quite as badly as I'd envisaged it would, which makes me think that some of my pain, bloating and nausea are down to the ompremazole - it does warn that can happen on the packet.  When it says 1 in 10 people get these symptoms I always seem to be that 1 in 10!  I don't have any more burning pain or acid reflux (at least yet) but  I'm still losing weight which slightly troubles me.  That said, when I think of how I normally eat I must be down at least 500 calories a day.  JMG will know from another thread that I have a sweet tooth and at the moment the thought of eating a bar of chocolate makes me feel very sick indeed... Oh no - hope that doesn't mean I have developed a chocolate intolerance! I bought some 10g ompremazole tabs yesterday from Boots, having had nothing yesterday, and I've taken one at breakfast time.  So far so good.  I think I might take these for a few days then taper off. Thank you so much guys for accompanying me on what would otherwise be a lonely journey.  
    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
