Am on a mission to find barley that does not have a nut warning on it. So far I've been to the Loblaws near me, one Dominion, Whole Foods. The barley at the first two stores have nut warnings. Whole Foods has Bob's Red Mill barley, but this company also processes tree nuts. If there isn't barley at my local No Frills I don't know where else to go! (I did call the Dominion on Front Street . . . the person I spoke to checked and said they only sell bulk barley. I doubt that that is true . . . I think he only checked in the organics section.)

Any ideas? (I'm supposed to be eating gluten for a number of months so I can be tested for celiac. Am completely out of barley! I'm pretty sure I bought the barley at Loblaws the last time . . . their brand selection has changed.)

Grocery shopping can sometimes be soooo frustrating. Especially when I have to run to a bunch of stores in Toronto that I have to commute to via the subway!

update: I did go to the Dominion on Front St. . . . they sell Mr. Goudas products. No nut warning--I hope it is safe. Has anyone called about Mr. Goudas?

Sorry Helen - I've never had a problem with the barley that we buy - but of course now I can't find it in our cupboard.

I guess the only thing to do is call the company and see what they say. Good luck!!

Finally remembered the kind we get: Clic. We've never had a problem and I've never seen a warning.

Thanks---haven't seen Clic barley anywhere . . . maybe it isn't sold in Toronto. I haven't bothered to call about Mr. Goudas yet . . . I figure I'll use up the bag since this one seems to be fine and then call before venturing to buy another one...
