The local Bulk Barn was one of my favourite places to go as a kid! The rows upon rows of colourful candies and chocolate left me feeling like I’d walked into Willy Wonka’s factory. Childhood bliss! This love has not died as I have gotten a little bit older, but rather than getting giddy over Skittles and Zingy Zaps I B-line it for the gluten free section!
This was one of my greatest discoveries when I went gluten, egg and dairy free. It’s often hard to find flours, mixes, pastas and so many other staple products you need at an affordable price.
The gluten free section not only makes it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for, but also allows you to buy the amount you need. This makes experimenting with recipes less risky because you can buy just a little bit at a time. So many gluten free products are packaged in small quantities, but are around 3 to 4 times the price of ‘normal’ alternatives. Bulk Barn’s pricing is highly competitive with local grocery stores on most items and offers a large and consistent selection of products.
Some of my favourite products so far are:
- Banana Bread Blend
- Pizza Crust
- White Rice Flour
- Cornbread Mix
- Waffle/Pancake Mix
- Vanilla Cake Mix
- Brown Rice Spaghetti
