If you’re living a gluten-free lifestyle and have been yearning for a home-style muffin that is moist and bursting with flavor, our new Pillsbury Gluten Free Muffins are exactly what you’ve been looking for!

Uncle Wally’s and Pillsbury have joined forces to develop these delicious gluten-free muffins, whose taste and texture can proudly stand among the best traditional home-style muffins on the market today.

Pillsbury Gluten Free Muffins are ready to eat, individually wrapped for on-the-go convenience, and are certified gluten free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization. This assurance is important for consumers who must avoid gluten – a protein in wheat and related grains – for health reasons such as the serious digestive condition known as celiac disease.

“Consumers have never before had the opportunity to buy this type of fully baked and ready-to-eat gluten-free product from a trusted brand such as Pillsbury,” said Jerry Ceccio, Uncle Wally’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “When a product bears the Pillsbury name, consumers can feel confident the product is truly gluten free and that it will be top quality. Uncle Wally’s is very excited to be entrusted with this iconic brand.”

Pillsbury Gluten Free Muffins are sold four to a package and are available in Blueberry and Chocolate Chip, with more flavors to come. They are currently being sold at Wegmans Food Markets, Ingles Markets, ShopRite Supermarkets, and Giant Eagle Stores. Plans are being made for national distribution. Pillsbury Gluten Free Muffins can be found in grocers’ all-natural freezer cases.

In addition to those who must avoid gluten due to celiac disease, gluten sensitivities and allergies, other people simply want to reduce the amount of wheat in their diet. Pillsbury Gluten Free Muffins are made from high-quality rice flour and all of the best ingredients you would find in a home-style muffin.

Pillsbury products have been making meal times special for 130 years. Favorite Pillsbury products include refrigerated cookies, crescent dinner rolls, breads, biscuits, pie crusts and sweet rolls as well as frozen biscuits, pie crusts and breakfast items. Uncle Wally’s and its parent company, United Baking Company, were formed in 1995 by Wally “Famous” Amos and Lou Avignone. In addition to producing its own popular Uncle Wally’s branded muffin products, Uncle Wally’s is a valued baking partner to some of the most highly regarded companies in food, retail and food service.
