Look what I found while on our Austin trip. I was strolling down the aisle at the H.E.B. grocery store and these evil gluten free ding dong replicas were on a display just before the gluten free aisle. I saw these cake boxes by All But Gluten that looked just like the Hostess Ding Dongs I ate as a kid. (Can you believe this grocery store had half of a long aisle devoted to gluten free products? They even had a gluten free freezer section in the gluten free aisle.)
I grabbed a box of these cakes and tossed it into my cart. In hindsight, I should(n’t) have grabbed more because these I wasn’t sure if they are available in the Bay Area.
I went to the company website and did a little research. All About Gluten products are manufactured in a dedicated gluten free facility in Canada. From what I can see, they are available in Walmarts and a few other stores here in the U.S. All But Gluten makes breads and other baked products. I will have to look for their products the next time I am near a Walmart.
These snack cakes tasted incredible. I am almost sad to say that as good as they are, I do not think I will buy them again after looking at the ingredients. They are not even remotely healthy. These snack cakes are in my stereotypical gluten free “junk food” category.
Have you seen these in your stores?
