Crisps

Hi friends! Well I was telling you all about wanting some snacks crisps in particular and struggling to find them...wel I went to aldi and found plenty! I wanted to grab as many types as I could I was getting carried away! Regalbirdy I think it was you who mentioned aldi?? Thanks to whoever did!

I'm a bit wary about Aldi, as we've been gluten twice by gluten free food from them (and customer services were pretty dismissive about it) - can you let us know how you get on with the crisps? I'd be happier to try them if others don't get sick!

Same here, i avoid anything gluten free by Aldi after being glutenised last year, i cannot remember the ingredient of the crisps but i know it was not one of the usual ones to avoid.๐Ÿ˜•

Oh no! It's so rubbish they don't take it seriously! Did you complain?

I was pretty nice about it "just thought you should know, this batch is contaminated. We ate 3 tins, had the same reaction each time, and weeks apart, so it's clearly this product". They just said "no one else has gotten sick, so you must have gotten ill somewhere else, it's not our product".

That is bad!! Ignorance of the disease as they do not know anything about it, i did not complain as i have learnt from past experience that nothing is usually achieved as people really don't give a flying.... pardon my language.

I do not eat anything from aldi now, i prefer tesco or asda and now and then M&S.

I really do hope in the future that we are taken more seriously and being gluten free is not a choice for us celiacs.x

Yeah,I've not been to Aldi for about 9 months now, so they're losing a lot of business by not taking it seriously enough. I'll only go back to stock up on maple syrup when we run out - it's half the price of anywhere else!

Same here, thumbs down to aldi for me, i love syrup too but for me its good old tate &lyle!! Whats your take on honey cooper? I tend to avoid it as many sites say its ok and others say avoid it ( something to do with the bees and cross contamination) i surpose its again how sensitive you are really!!

Is honey a contamination risk? That might explain why OH has been poorly this week, he's been having honey on porridge! I'm not a fan of the taste, so I avoid it anyway! I'm trying a vegan coconut honey just now though, and that's been pretty good!

Yes there is conflicting views on it, i will try and route out a link from one website and see what you think, the last time i ate honey was last year and had tummy issues, i later googled it and there is a risk with near by crops of wheat etc as bees go everywhere, sounds silly but maybe true!

Ive tried posting link but it does not work but its called super sensitive celiac-what you need to know about honey.

I use honey instead of sugar and have never had any problems. Sugar upsets me. At the moment we are lucky enough to have raw local honey from a beekeeper in the village, it's gorgeous, and I have not had any problem with it.

I think it depends on the person really but i do like honey so when i read a few articles on it that was saying the bees ingest the wheat from nearby crops you start thinking...um maybe then, there was also someone saying its best to avoid supermarket honey and go local and get raw honey! You are lucky to have a local bee keeper, enjoy.๐Ÿ˜Š

I think a lot of people get on fine, we've maybe just been unlucky! But everything was marked gluten free, so you lose trust in the brand altogether. If others get on ok though, I might give them one more chance!

I am going to give it a try and hopefully be fine.

Yes sorry to say aldi is not a brand i trust either after being glutenised a year ago by a pack of their crisps...sorry but who knows you maybe ok as we are all different. I have to say aldi do put alot of not needed ingredients into their foods which are not needed though but thats my personal opinion. Good luck.

Well we're all different and I'm going to give it a try. Hopefully I'll be fine.

Hi. all the Pom bears flavours are gluten free and you will also find many of the bags in M&S are gluten free. When you start looking especially the supermarkets many are labelled gluten free I also like the eat the natural range made with quinoa or lentils all are very tasty, I know Sainsburyโ€™s and Holland & Barrett stock these.
