Udi's Product Display at local Kroger

Just wanted to mention some new products I have seen at various Kroger stores in the Durham area. Look for the special display of Udi's gluten free products available in the deli/bakery section of the store. Most other GF products are located in the Nature's Market area of the store. I have seen this at both the Kroger on Hillsborough Road and the South West Durham location near Kohls. Products available include: bread, granola, muffins, cinnamon rolls, pizza crust, cookies and bagels. Kroger continues to offer many great gluten free options for their customers. See my previous posts on Kroger here.
