Here is Nicole's e-mail:
"I have been diagnosed with gluten intolerance. Can you offer advice on where to purchase products (other than Trader Joe's and Harris Teeter) and are coupons available for such products? I have learned that these products are quite expensive."
Trader Joe's. Whole Foods and Harris Teeter are definitely places you can find GF products, but I also have heard of folks ordering online as well. Amazon.com is one of the sites I have heard that offers sales on GF products. Does anyone here have experience ordering GF foods from Amazon?
You can call or e-mail the manufacturer's of the GF products you like directly to request coupons. Make sure you Like those companies on Facebook and follow them on Twitter and sign up for any e-mail newsletters the companies offer so you don't miss any coupons.
