Be Careful Out There!

Just when you think you've got the GF thing down pat, BAM! Something happens to shake up your world. Okay, this is not really earth-shattering, I was just trying to get your attention. I was about to take a bite of some microwaved mashed potatoes, when something made me check the packaging. What??? Wheat!!!!! Are you kidding me? I'm pretty sure I've eaten this product before (Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes, if you must know) and it did NOT contain wheat.
It was a good wake up call for me. I know that I've gotten lax about checking ingredient lists - I've been at this for 7 years, I guess I thought I had it down. I can assure you I will be more diligent about looking at labels from now on. You too, okay?

Everybody knows all the best potatoes contain wheat. WHAT????

that's insane.

There's no reason for any wheat to be in there. They're crazy.

Out of curiosity, do you eat things that don't have wheat but have been processed in a facility that does? I find it really hard to find canned beans that don't say they've been processed in a facility with wheat.
