Anyhoo, so, all of a sudden a different variety within a brand you trust pops out at you -- maybe the package is particularly fetching, maybe you're just hankering for something borrowed, something blue, something new.
So, you're in a rush, and you just put the bag in the basket -- it's got to be O.K., right? Every other variety you've tried within the brand has been gluten free, after all.
Whoa. This is where one can get into trouble -- as I recently did with Garden of Eatin' Multigrain Blues. And, the worst part was, I didn't even catch the gluten -- my boyfriend did (after I'd consumed three-quarters of the package)!
Ooh, la, la! To make this mistake really a doozy, I found that not only did these chips contain wheat, but also barley and rye!
Now, I don't believe that I've seen any Garden of Eatin' chips labeled gluten free -- even when they have no gluten ingredients. So it was entirely my fault that I didn't read through the ingredients before I chipped and dipped. Venture safely, my little chip hounds!
