I love shopping at Aldi as to me they are much cheaper than the mainstream supermarkets. One downside is that they do not carry many gluten free products. However this week, they are carrying the special ‘Has no…’ range, which is no gluten, wheat or dairy, as well as a couple of other gluten free items.
This is the second time they have had this range as a special item. It is very exciting to me as a person that requires these products to help with their diet and it also increases the awareness of allergy friendly products.
I did buy many items from the range last year and was very pleased with the result. There are a few more items this time around but as they say, it is for a limited time so get in quick if you want to get some
Here is the link to the Aldi catalogue that shows what they have. (scroll down and click on the item names on the left)
Some of the gluten free items include:
- Gluten Free Plain Flour – $2.99
- Gluten Free Self Raising Flour – $2.99
- Gluten Free Rice Crumbs – $2.99
- Gluten Free Gravy Mix – $2.99
- Gluten Free Choc Chip Cookies – $2.99
- Italian Gluten Free Pasta – $2.99
- Gluten Free Pancake Mix – $2.99
- Gluten Free Falafel Mix – $2.99
- Gluten Free Bread Mix – $2.99
- Gluten Free Wraps – $3.99
and a few more things
What I find interesting is some of these things are not cheaper than the supermarkets. The Aldi Gluten Free Flours, for example, are $2.99 for 500gms yet the Orgran Gluten Free Flour from Coles is $2.99 for 500 gms as well.
Also I can get a 500gm packet of gluten free pasta from Coles for $3, same price as Aldi.
So as always, watch what you buy if you need to watch your pennies. Don’t assume just because its at Aldi it’s cheaper. Although it is wonderful to see them thinking about us gluten free folk!
