I took a trip to Aldi today. After posting those spectacular produce deals yesterday I knew I had to get out there! I have also been hearing really nice things about Aldi’s labeling and I wanted to check it out. I go to Aldi about every other week typically, but I usually buy primarily produce, because I was under the impression that a “cheaper” store would be less vigilant about GF labeling. Well, BOY was I wrong!
I went a bit camera-happy at Aldi today and probably made some people stare, but I just had to show you how great their labeling is!
Whole Peeled Tomatoes
French Vanilla Cappuccino
And there was SO much more: Canned vegetables, tomato sauce, beans, peanut butter, all marked! Obviously I couldn’t take a picture of everything.
I was surprised that it seemed like their fruits were not marked. I did not check them all, but applesauce in particular was not marked gluten-free (or lactose-free), even though it had none of those ingredients. So depending on your preferences, you may be able to purchase more of their items than are actually marked. But hey, it’s a spectacular start!
