This part of my life began when my very sick partner was diagnosed with Celiac. Even the slightest exposure to gluten can make him very ill for several days, so I have pursued gluten-free options with thorough aggression. In the U.S. a recent surge of gluten awareness means we have more choices than ever, but it still means hunting and analyzing and tracking down parent companies. After several years now of doing so, I want to share my tricks and tips with others who are still struggling.

Gluten-Free Featured Product: Edy's Fruit Bars

A regular postings of gluten-free products that I use myself and are available in my local grocery store.  You can check your local store for these items, order them online, or ask your store to stock them. I do not have any relationship with the companies in question, nor do I receive any form of compensation for these reviews. Gluten-Free status is based on information from the manufacturer, the current Cecelia's Marketplace shopping guide and personal experience, and may change if the company changes formulation or manufacturing processes.

Edy's Fruit Bars
These are a fantastic frozen snack, as they contain real fruit and aren't over-sweetened.  My partner goes through the Coconut bars like crazy, while I like the lemonade and strawberry best.  The Coconut bars have shreds of coconut, and while the underlying flavor is delicious, there is a texture problem for me. 

According to their website, the following flavors are gluten-free.  To verify, go to their website, click on "Flavor/Ingredient Search" at the bottom of the page, and select "gluten-free" in the pop-up box.  Many of their ice cream flavors are also gluten-free and will come up in the listing.
