News & Notes: February 15, 2019

Trader Joe's has introduced two new gluten-free cereals: Neapolitan Puffs and Cocoa Crunch. The Puffs are made with a blend of bean and rice flours, while the Crunch is made with rice and sorghum.
Snyder's of Hanover's newest snack food addition is a cinnamon brown sugar version of their gluten-free pretzel pieces. We found these at Wegmans in Cherry Hill - they're in the chip and pretzel aisle - and they are amazing! Not too sweet.

Elsie's opens today in Haddon Township (803 White Horse Pike, 856-858-7041), offering gluten-free pickle sandwiches. Guests can build their own breadless sandwiches served on kosher pickles or roll-ups made with cucumbers or pickles instead of wraps.

Reader Bethann S. let me know that M2O Burgers & Salads, in the Queen Village section of Philadelphia (701 S. 5th St., 267-930-8388), has gluten-free burger buns and a dedicated fryer. M2O is opening a location at the former home of Elevation Burger in Wynnewood (50 E. Wynnewood Rd.) later this year.

In Aston, Wolf's Superior Sandwiches (4417 Pennell Rd., 484-480-3181) has gluten-free bread for sandwiches and lists on its website which sandwiches, burgers and tacos are gluten free. (Thanks to reader Mark K.)

Wahlburgers has finally opened its Atlantic City location at the Ocean Resort (500 Boardwalk, 609-783-8868). Gluten-free guests will find burger buns, fries and salad croutons.

Also in A.C., Hayday Coffee (131 S. Tennessee Ave., 609-350-6475) offers sweets from the all-gluten-free bakery Kizbee's Kitchen.

Sadia's Tea & Coffee in Egg Harbor Township (6106 E. Black Horse Pike, 609-277-7455) lists gluten-free options like salads, soups, wraps and sandwiches on its menu.

At Tonic Bar & Grille in Wilmington (111 W. 11th St., 302-777-2040), gluten-free options are noted on the lunch and dinner menus, though there is no dedicated fryer.

Everyone's favorite stand at the Reading Terminal Market, the entirely gluten-free Fox & Sons Fancy Corn Dogs, is hitting the road - literally. The RTM stand isn't going anywhere, but the owners hope to launch a 100% gluten-free food truck this summer that will serve up many of the same fried deliciousness that's is available in Philly.

The Gluten Intolerance Group of Chester County is hosting a meet-up at the all-gluten-free A&M Factory in Malvern (360 Lancaster Ave.) on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. RSVP by calling 484-798-5371 or 610-724-5497.

Have a great weekend!
