The recent Gluten & Allergen Free Expo
in Dallas played host to thousands of men, women and children who, like many of you, are in the constant search for the best tasting gluten free or other allergen free foods for themselves and their families.
I joined the team at the Van’s Natural Foods booth and during our waffle sampling, I had the opportunity to introduce Van’s products to a few folks who weren’t aware of our breakfast offerings. They quickly became converts! Of course, I also had the chance to meet many loyal Van’s fans.
“Do you know how many times these waffles have saved me while I’ve been on the road?, “ was Linda’s first question to me. She went on to explain that as a frequent traveler, she knows Van’s is safe, easy and tasty “road food” that she can quickly cook for her and her children before heading out the door.
“Are you kidding me? High five!” This was the response I heard when I told a Van’s lover about the Wheat Free Pancakes
that are hitting supermarket shelves.
Carolyn: “I started using Van’s as hamburger buns and now (pointing to her friend Deborah) she does, too!” Deborah and Carolyn are hardcore Van’s lovers simply for the fact that they work well in place of bread and buns. Try Van’s Gluten Free Waffles
in place of bread for grilled sandwiches (cheese, turkey and cheese, a Rueben) or buns for burgers!
A few other finds that hit the spot for me:
• Bard’s Gluten Free Beer
• El’s Medleys
• Way Better Snacks-Black Bean Tortilla Chips
