We shop at Target 2 to 3 times a month. We love the snack bar because we can get nachos, popcorn, diet lemonade and daughter can get a hot dog with no bun.

But today? There was NO snack bar! Just some signs saying they are remodeling and there is fresh produce coming.

Now I don't know if this means we are getting a proper grocery section or not. They do currently have a few aisles of shelf stable stuff and some refrigerated and frozen stuff. But I am pretty sure it is not the whole line that a Target with a proper grocery would sell. And it looks like they just started the remodel.

So I have a couple of questions.

If your Target has a grocery... Does it also have a snack bar? I would love for that to come back. We usually stop there after Costco. And after all that walking through Costco I am ready for a snack and a drink. Yes I know Costco has a snack bar but it's not as gluten-free friendly as the one at Target it or was.

And the other question... Do they sell any gluten-free products? I can currently get some things that are gluten-free, but do they have any specialty type things? Like gluten-free pasta or flour?

Thanks! This is a good thing. Now we can alternate our shopping between Target and Winco. Each one has a Costco nearby.

We have 3 " Super Target". The have a full grocery with produce. It has some gluten-free pasta, cereal, cookies, flours, frozen dinners, etc. They are mostly spread around with the other pasta, etc. We have a full snack bar, bakery, deli counter , pharmacy & Starbucks. It's a full grocery but unlike the regular large groceries, it is a bit limited. For example, it might have 2 brands of canned beans & the grocery has 5. The prices are better than the grocery. For example, Newmans Marinara sauce is about $2 at Target, $1.85 at Walmart but $4.50 at the grocery. Plus I use a Target Visa card & get 5% off my total.

We have one regular Target with limited groceries. It is smaller than the others. All the Walmarts here are expanding & remodeling to have a full or mostly full grocery.

My Target just did this remodeling thing to add an almost-full grocery store. They did keep the snack bar, just spruced it up a bit. The grocery section now sells just about everything in a regular grocery store, just not all the different varieties. I don't buy produce there because I didn't think it looked great, plus they sell a lot of it "per piece" rather than "per pound", which often makes it more expensive. On the other hand everything else is cheaper. Cereal especially. That's where I stock up on all our cereal.

Mine also has a ton of gluten free things -- oatmeal, flours, baking mixes, cookies, etc. I found gluten free graham crackers which I've never seen anywhere else. There's a kind of frozen waffle that's gluten free -- I forget the brand but it's buckwheat. Very yummy. And best of all I discovered a new bread! It's Glutino "Harvest Corn". But it's not crumbly corn bread like we'd eat with chili. This is regular bread, but just made from corn. It's a bit different texture than say Udi's, but I love it toasted in the morning. It has a nice crunch.

I'm really happy with the Target food section now!

    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.
