Stores in my small town have stopped carrying a ton of gf/cf foods in the last week!
I went grocery shopping for my son yesterday, and wanted to sob in the store. He's a pretty picky eater, what with being 3 years old, having sensory issues, and you know, just being a stubborn kid (and a lack of discipline on the issue from mom and dad, I know!), and on top of it, we've got him on a gf/cf diet, plus dye free, because it is working wonders with him. My husband and I both work crazy hours, and both have to go out of town this week for a conference, so I was shopping for easy foods for his sitter to make for him. So, naturally, this was the week that the stores all decided to stop carrying the foods he likes. We're in a small town, so there aren't many choices to begin with, but I find that I can get a few things at each of the three stores in town, and it works out. Walmart is the cheapest (by far!) so I typically get his bread and chicken tenders and pasta there, and guess what? They stopped carrying them this week. Just completely stopped. I know because I asked several employees. So the hunt began. I went to the other two stores, and I found a much smaller package of the chicken for about the same price, so I picked it up because this week he will need it, especially with us being away. I realize this isn't the end of the world, but it was so discouraging. I wanted to cry in the store. This diet isn't particularly easy to begin with.
Ok, pathetic rant over.
