Today we stopped by ALDI and decided to try their gluten free frozen pancakes. The blueberry ones do not contain dairy, but they also have a buttermilk variety, which, well, does, lol. So we went with blueberry for Mr. dairy-free 10.
These are in the “SimplyNature” line so contain no artificial colors or flavors — although they do have plenty of sugar. Both boys highly approved of how sweet these were, but I thought they ran too sweet.
I did approve, however, of how they came prepacked in groups of threes, so you can make a few but not leave the rest in the box open. 12 pancakes ran $2.89, which for a gluten free product isn’t bad. If you think about the non-sale, non-coupon cost of conventional name-brand freezer pancakes, this price is actually comparable to that, rather than to their gluten free equivalents.
So, just thought I’d show you these since many of you have been asking about the gluten free products at ALDI. As with the gluten free brownies I bought last week, these are also a limited time special buy — but I’m hoping that the fact that we keep seeing gluten free products appear means that they’re becoming a regular part of the rotation. (Because if anyone needs more ways to save on food, it’s people with food allergies and sensitivities!)
- And, hey ALDI — bring back those gluten free chicken nuggets! Please.
