Soy free junk food at Aldi

These items intrigued me. They were next to the soy free bread at Aldi. So I happened to look at them. Our kids can never have any junk food because it all has soy in it. Well, imagine my surprise to find that these two items did not contain soy. Usually anything with bread/cake/cookies or anything with any kind of filling has soy in it (our kids have never had an oreo or a twinkie, sad isn’t it?). Tragically both of these items are on equipment with peanuts (more obvious for the PB&J rolls) so our kids still can’t have these, but I offer these up to my non-peanut-allergy readers as store-bought junk food that is actually soy free.

I'm trying to track allergen information for every restaurant that we eat at. With my son's soy allergy, each time we eat at a restaurant, it can take up to 30 minutes to figure out what he can eat. Especially since most restaurants don't accurately represent their usage of soy.

We're tracking what soy free (including soybean oil free) foods our son can eat at all restaurants we go to. If you've got a soy allergy in your family and have any information you can share, please contact us.
