I shall make a special trip on my way home this evening & offer "heat" if my local Sainsbury's is offering the same deal.

If it is, then they will be down by a few boxes. Thanks.

It seems ridiculous that Doves produce a gluten free chololate but it is surprising how many chocolate manufacturers include wheat based products in the ingredients. Various brands of chocolate were among the last things I identified as containing wheat when I went on a wheat-free diet.

Unfortunately the product was £2.04 in my local store; and that appeared to be the standard price (albeit less than the previous price in your branch).

this isn't chocolate, its a cereal and amazingly one of the very few gf there is, even "corn"flakes and "rice" crispies contain malted barley flavouring so not gf.

ps you might want to avoid many gf free foods including prescription ones as a lot contain gluten removed wheat starch.

Which of your products is gluten- or wheat-free?

At this time, we do not offer products suitable for consumers on a gluten- or wheat-free diet. All of our products are produced in facilities that also manufacture wheat-containing products. We cannot guarantee that any products are 100% gluten- or wheat-free.

Kellogg's® Eggo™ Syrup and Kellogg's™ Fruit Flavored Snacks are formulated gluten and wheat-free and may be acceptable for consumers on restricted diets. However, these products are produced in facilities that also manufacture other products that contain wheat. Consumers have varying sensitivities to gluten, and although we follow approved standardized manufacturing practices, some consumers are so sensitive that even wheat dust that may be in the product can result in a reaction. Therefore, we do not have any products that are gluten-free.

Kellogg's® Corn Pops and Kellogg's® Rice Krispies might be suitable, depending on gluten sensitivity. Corn Pops have a very small amount of wheat starch added, and Rice Krispies have a small amount of malt flavoring, made from barley. Check with your personal physician to determine if these products are suitable for you.

not sure the point of this?, just as i'm not sure of the weak explanations from kellogs in fact they completely fail to mention they used to carry the crossed grain symbol on many of their products certifying them to be gluten free and as far as i'm aware the stringency for this has not changed recently.

so they save a few quid by not having to separate manufacturing processes and are unable to maintain a decent level of precaution to prevent cross contamination, sounds like everybody should be happy to eat any of their products!

well tbh(and blunt it appears), not sure why you would post that at all,
"fyi" rarely cuts it when it comes from a page aimed purely at whitewashing the simple fact that to produce GF goods is not profitable for kellogs

Being blunt is fine... I shall respond accordingly:

I was not offering the information just for your benefit.

Do you have interest in the product in this deal or are you just here to complain at the Company or Companies you have personal issues with?

[EDIT]:(PS. I also have food intolerances so I can appreciate your concern; just not your resentment of the individual Companies)

As stated i am very interested as this is one of the only 3 or 4 cereals i can actually eat so i applaud doves
sorry but the above patter you quoted was of no real value to anyone but kellogs, i would be interested in why you thought otherwise
You may not have an issue with company waffle but i do and am not sure why you show such concern at my venting against it, do you work for kellogs?

do you not find it infuriating when products you should be able to eat you are not because some "blind tasting" told the company it would be more profitable to contaminate a food with things that will make you ill?

This, to me is the key especially when companies "fob" you off with "sales patter" instead of the truth.

I operate a simple policy:

If somebody makes a product I cannot eat because they had included an ingredient that I have trouble with then I do not buy it. Their loss.

I am sorry you did not gain any benefit from the link I posted. Some people may have done.

I will reiterate; this thread is not just for your benefit.

If you have a problem with a Company or their products do not try to take it out on HotUKDeals members.

Thanks.

Why does somebody with a different opinion to you have to work for the Kellogg Company?

If you think my responses were rude then perhaps we should not discuss this further.
