Gluten-Free in Kaua’i

Gluten Free in Kaua'i

I was lucky enough to spend 30 days on Kaua’i in the middle of winter. Which, looking back, was a fantastic decision! No snow! No below freezing temperatures! Just warm sunny days on the beach. How can I do this again next year?

During our month there, we mingled with the wild life, went on a few hikes and saw a couple sunsets. What an excellent trip!

Gluten-Free in Kaua’i

Eating gluten-free in Kaua’i was actually pretty easy. We didn’t eat out much and cooked most meals at home, but finding gluten-free products was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

Wal-Mart: There’s a Wal-Mart on Kaua’i with a gluten-free section. It has about 30 products in that section and a few others throughout the other aisles.

Safeway: There’s currently only one Safeway with another one on the way. It has various Udi’s products, Van’s Gluten-Free and various other gluten-free items. It’s a bit more expensive than Wal-Mart, but Hawaii prices are higher anyway.

Foodland: Is another grocery store with limited GF items and is super expensive. I didn’t shop there at all due to the pricing and limited selection.

CostULess: This is a warehouse store with a few gluten-free items. Worth checking out if you are going to be baking and the pricing is the most reasonable on the island. It reminded me of a mini-Costco.

Kukuiula Market: Located in Koloa on the southern side of the island. This little market had the best selection for gluten-free item that I found on the island. Extremely expensive, but lot of items that I didn’t see in Safeway or Wal-mart. I was so surprised of the variety.
