Gluten Free

We are committed to providing a large selection of high quality and best tasting gluten free products. Celiac Disease is your body’s reaction to gluten and it affects about 10 out of 100 people. We are your headquarters for thousands of delicious gluten free items.

So why gluten free? 

Celiac disease is an immune reaction to gluten; a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Many physicians consider Celiac disease exceedingly rare because they have never seen someone with it because of varied symptoms, Celiac disease is being missed or misdiagnosed.

    I heard this announced on the speaker multiple times at local ACME stores with the enter to win contest. It said to go to the service desk and ask, but each time I did I got a deer in headlights look from the employees who had no clue what I was talking about. They kept telling me to go to the website, and I thought, I’m standing in ACME! too bad it’s well after the deadline. Should employees be made aware of messages announced over the speaker? Disappointed.

      Hi, Janise. We regret to hear of this lapse in service you encountered. We’d like to address this for training purposes. Could you tell us which location you happened to visit? -Julio
