UPDATE: Pillsbury products are now available in Canada! Thanks General Mills for listening to your consumers. See this post for more information.
Yesterday, Pillsbury announced that they’re releasing three gluten-free products: pie/pastry crust, pizza dough, and chocolate chip cookie dough. You’ll start seeing these products in grocery stores in May, and they will become widely available by August.
Sadly, these products won’t be coming to Canada at all. I e-mailed the company this morning and received this reply:
“Thank you for contacting the General Mills Consumer Services Department. At this time, the Pillsbury product you contacted us about is sold only in the United States. We appreciate your loyalty to General Mills products and will share your interest with the appropriate individuals.”
However, General Mills said the same thing about Chex and Kellogg Canada said the same thing about gluten-free Rice Krispies – two products that are available here in Canada now. A big factor in the change was likely consumer response. So, if you would like to see Pillsbury gluten-free products in Canada, visit Life Made Delicious, click the Feedback link at the bottom, and let them know!
