One more observation about my recent trip to Chicago.
I made another visit to Trader Joe's while in Chicago. When rumors started that Trader Joe's was coming here, I wrote a post about how disappointed I was at the gluten-free offerings on previous visits to the Chicago store. But I decided to give it another chance last week.
The first thing I found was a gluten-free bread section. It had a bunch of Udi's products and one original that looked intriguing: a gluten-free "ryeless rye" bread.
Since I really miss rye bread, I picked up the package. It was basically like picking up a brick. No thank you.
My real mission at Trader Joe's was to find something for a light breakfast, like a gluten-free muffin or a breakfast bar. I didn't see anything so, standing in front of the breakfast bar section, I asked an employee if they had any gluten-free breakfast bars. "No."
I should have thrown the ryeless rye bread at her, but then I probably would have gotten arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.
So anyway, Trader Joe's can come to Jacksonville. I just don't care.
