    Im glad you are doing this. I’ve been trying to find a way to tell you how much I love all of your LiveGfree products and you keep coming out with more! Living with celiac disease is not an easy disease to live with especially when it comes time to go shopping. Not to mention quite pricey!! I have found not only the LiveGfree products tastes very good (trust me, when I bring dish to a gathering people don’t even know it’s g- free until I say something) it’s also a little easier on my wallet too. Keep up the good work and I can’t wait to look for more products to come.

    I like the plain pizza because I like to change it up a bit and add assorted items to my pizza each time I make one. And with the large selection of both fresh and frozen vegetables and meats available at Aldi’s I never have to worry about running out of options.

  3. Angela Wade

    I just want to tell your company that your gluten free “liveGfree ” foods have made my life of being Celiac easier to deal with. Your LiveGfree bread & the Brownie Mix is to die for as are 95% of the other GF foods your stores offer . I have never been so happy since finding your stores and GF products. Thank You Aldi’s for all the wonderful products that you off the Celiac population
