Last night @AllergicGirl Sloane Miller was kind enough to hand off some wonderful gluten free (and allergen free) goods to me. So, beware, I’m about to be a baking fiend. But included in the bag’o’goodies, there was ANGIE’S KETTLE CORN! We opened it on the spot and I had a taste, as a matter of fact, we were in a NYC resto, and we had our server try some – sweet, but not too sweet, salty, but not too salty – what a wonderful find. I went to Angie’s Kettle Corn web site and what I loved about it is that IMMEDIATELY on the first page, Angie’s let’s the consumer know it’s gluten free, top 8 free, and kosher. Additionally, Miller tells me, it’s available in NY State at Costco (yep, Costco Allergy peeps!) and Target.
But wait, there’s more. I slept in this morning (first time in 13 years) and our allergic child, P ate the Angie’s Kettle Corn for breakfast. Yes, it’s allowed, and yes, she loved it! Popcorn, is after all, full of fiber. Those of you who know us well, know we are the house of alternative breakfasts as P does not like cereal.
Angie’s Kettle Corn passed the kid test.
Here’s the Allergen statement from Angie’s Kettle Corn’s web site:
