News & Notes: January 13, 2017

With the new year comes a round of new gluten-free products. Look in the cereal aisle for Post's new Cinnamon Pebbles, part of the regular - not limited edition - Pebbles line. The company has nutrition and ingredient information posted at its website.

Kellogg's has added two gluten-free Special K Nourish chewy nut bars: Chocolate Coconut Cashew and Caramel Almond Sea Salt. Kashi, also owned by Kellogg's, has a new line of gluten-free chewy nut butter bars. Those bars come in four varieties: Salted Chocolate Chunk,  Almond Snickerdoodle, Chocolate Trail Mix (all made with almond butter) and Coconut Cashew Macaroon (made with cashew butter). All of these bars include oats as an ingredient.

The gluten-free Canyon Bakehouse bakery is introducing a new line of breads called Heritage Style, which come in Honey White and Whole Grain varieties. The bread is sold fresh, not frozen, and the slices are larger than those in the company's original bread loaves. Look for them in the grocery section at Target stores nationwide; they'll soon be available for online ordering through Canyon Bakehouse's website.

Schar's newest gluten-free cookies include Butter Cookies, Chocolate Thins and Oat Biscuits.

As I wrote in Tuesday's blog post, Jersey Mike's Subs locations in the greater Philadelphia area are participating in a 90-day test of gluten-free sub rolls. The locations that opened this week in Trexlertown, Pennsylvania and Voorhees, New Jersey are among those slated to participate in the program.

The region's first BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse recently opened in Allentown (665 N. Krocks Rd., 484-268-2340). The gluten-free menu there includes thin-crust pizza and a chocolate chip Pizookie for dessert.

Reader Dalice let me know that in the Queen Village section of Philadelphia, Thai restaurant Pad Chili (604-606 S. 2nd St., 215-470-4301) can prepare selected items gluten free.

Two more Philadelphia Snap Kitchen locations have opened, one in Bella Vista (601 S. 10th St., 215-845-0027) and the other in Fishtown (1325 Frankford Ave., 267-838-6590). Practically all of the to-go meals sold there are gluten free.

City Kitchen, the demonstration kitchen at Philadelphia's Reading Terminal Market (12th & Arch Sts.), is hosting a "Gluten Free Friday" cooking class on Friday, March 3 beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $65 per person and can be ordered online.

Have a great weekend!
