Lay's Chips - Gluten-Free Giveaway!

Everyone knows Lay's chips and everyone loves them.  This is a theory I have.

You will be happy to hear that many of Lay's chips have now been certified as gluten-free through the Canadian Celiac Association's new Gluten Free Certification Program.

I want to point out that there is no flavour difference to the Lay's products you grew up enjoying.  These products that have been certified have either always used naturally gluten-free ingredients or have been reformulated to be gluten-free without sacrificing the taste!

This is a direct quote from the Lay's team:
Our individual manufacturing facilities are recognized under the Gluten-Free Certification Program as consistently being able to manage a gluten-free environment and achieve the regulatory requirements to claim gluten-free. The Gluten-Free Certification Program recognition of facilities demonstrates that these facilities have applied due diligence through their gluten-free management system and that conformity was verified by a competent, independent audit.

The current list of products that have been certified as gluten-free include:

LAY’S® Cheddar & Sour Cream Simulated Flavour Potato Chips
LAY’S® Classic Potato Chips
LAY’S® Dill Pickle Simulated Flavour Potato Chips
Lay’s® Fries & Gravy Simulated Flavour Potato Chips
LAY’S® Lightly Salted Potato Chips
LAY’S® Ketchup Simulated Flavour Potato Chips
LAY’S® Old Fashioned Bar•B•Q Simulated Flavour Potato Chips
Lay’s® Roast Chicken Simulated Flavour Potato Chips
LAY’S® Salt & Vinegar Simulated Flavour Potato Chips
LAY’S® Sea Salt & Pepper Simulated Flavour Potato Chips
LAY’S® Smokey Bacon Simulated Flavour Potato Chips
LAY’S® Sour Cream & Onion Simulated Flavour Potato Chips
LAY’S® STAX® Bar•B•Q Flavour Potato Chips
LAY’S® STAX® Cheddar Flavour Potato Chips
LAY’S® STAX® Original Flavour Potato Chips
LAY’S® STAX® Salt & Vinegar Simulated Flavour Potato Chips
LAY’S® STAX® Sour Cream & Onion Flavour Potato Chips
Wavy LAY’S® Smoky Bar•B•Q Flavour Potato Chips
Wavy LAY’S® Original Potato Chips


If you would like more information on Lay's products, you can check out their website and click "Nutritional Info" on the top right corner.

New packaging will be rolling, including the words GLUTEN FREE at the end of the ingredient lists of the certified products.

  34. Hands Down Plain Potatoe Chips as a Child was my all time favorite but as an Adult it is so hard to choose my favorite flavor of chip! I love the crunch of each bite and every time I have a plain bag of chips it brings back a certain memory for me as a child. After swimming at the beach on vacation with my family we would go to the nearest swing set and play and Mom would look for a place to purchase a bag of chips for a treat because it was the only thing that didnt upset my stomach. Thanks Mom
