A couple months ago, I went to Hero Certified Burgers to get a veggie burger with a gluten-free bun (buns supplied by O'Doughs). The menu advertised that their veggie burger supplier is Sol Cuisine, a company known for producing a wide range of gluten-free veggie burgers that taste great - I even wrote a blog about Sol Cuisine.
To my surprise, the chain used a pure wheat gluten version of the veggie burgers!! Ahhh, needless to say, I went hungry that day.
When I got home that day, I emailed Hero Burger to ask why they used a wheaty veggie burger when they proudly advertise the use of a gluten-free bun and have an awesome gluten-free veggie burger supplier (Sol Cuisine). The person I exchanged emails with agreed that this was unfair to customers who are both vegetarian and gluten-free - like me!!
I just spoke with Sol Cuisine yesterday and have been told that Hero Certified Burgers has decided to change the veggie burgers to be gluten-free! woohoo! Never thought I'd be able to eat a veggie burger with bun at a fast food joint!
This new burger should be available soon... I will keep you guys posted when I get more information.
Don't worry... they still have their gluten-free 100% beef patty for you meat-eaters.
My burger will look something like this ;)
Who's excited to try the new burger? Or at least excited for me to eat a burger again?
