Gluten Free Icons: New or Reformulated?

Gluten Free Choice: New or Reformulated?

A lot can be learned from cereal. Chex and Pebbles products have been reformulated as gluten free. Rice Krispies has just created a new product which is gluten-free.

For iconic products, a careful boardroom decision may be required about whether to reformulate as gluten free, or create a new gluten free (version of a) product, or do nothing.

An Icon may be loved - just as it is - and any change may change people's feelings for the worse.

Gluten Free is a fast growth, new and potentially big market.

Assume that it is difficult to get added shelf space in a crowded supermarket for a new product.

So, will Oreo's ever be gluten free? Nuff Said.

The Customer Is Always Right

The Customer Is Always Right

You are Gluten Free. You want what you want. You want as many as you want. You are willing to pay a fair price.

*You want what you want, which should drive manufacturers to creating plenty of variety, ease of use, great taste and great quality - that you expect.

*You want as many as you want, which should drive stores to have on shelves as many as are currently demanded. If you saw it on the shelf the last time you visited, but not this time, tell the store manager to (please) order more and put more on the shelves.

*You are willing to pay a fair price, which should drive the manufacturers which charge an unfair price to either start to charge a fair price, or stop marketing their product. Older manufacturers may need to adapt to more effecient methods of production to be competitive.

The Gluten Free customer is unique right now. The Gluten Free customer is creating a very quickly increasing demand for gluten free products. The Gluten Free customer base is going to make up a rumored 10% of the entire population in the USA. Even further, some Gluten Free customers are not Gluten Free by personal choice, they are chronically Gluten Free.

Finally, some advice: Try newly available gluten free products and Use your power as a consumer with wisdom and strength.
