Some of my friends eat gluten free diets, so I know how important it can be to have readily available, affordable gluten free options at the grocery store. Gluten refers to the proteins found in wheat, and some people’s bodies are sensitive to gluten. Their immune systems may react, eventually affecting the small intestine’s ability to absorb nutrients and causing symptoms such as diarrhea, bloating, fatigue, and more.

It’s not fun to miss out on favorites foods that contain gluten, such as donuts, cookies, pasta, rolls, sandwiches, or even green bean casserole. Fortunately, Aldi offers several gluten free choices. Gluten free products at Aldi are mostly sold under the liveGfree brand. This is not a company. Instead, it’s the private label Aldi uses for its gluten free products.

Aldi stocks some of these products year round, including white wide pan bread, General Tso’s chicken, chicken nuggets, pancake and baking mix, cornbread mix, knockoff Red Lobster biscuit mix, and mac and cheese.

Other gluten free products show up at Aldi for a limited time during holidays or other specific times of the year. Those include donuts of various kinds, stuffing mix, and French fried onions.

One of the latest limited-edition gluten free items to hit Aldi shelves is gluten free egg rolls. Aldi already sells gluten free General Tso’s chicken, so these would be a nice complement to a Chinese-American-themed meal from Aldi. These gluten free egg rolls come in chicken or vegetable varieties, and I bought a box of each to try.

liveGfree Gluten Free Egg Rolls cost $6.49 for a 9-ounce box at the time of publication. The chicken egg rolls feature chicken, cabbage, carrots, scallions, and spices. The vegetable egg rolls feature cabbage, onion, vermicelli, carrots, scallions, and spices.

Each box contains three egg rolls, so that comes out to about $2.16 cents per egg roll. Walmart sells gluten free egg rolls under the Feel Good Foods brand, and 9-ounce box containing three of those egg rolls cost $7.74 at the time of writing, or about $2.58 per egg roll. That makes the Aldi egg rolls the better deal.

These are Aldi Finds, so they’re only in stores for a short time. Each store receives one shipment, and once that sells out, they’re gone unless Aldi makes the decision to bring them back at some point. You can’t order Aldi products online if they aren’t in stock at your local store.

These are certified gluten free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization.

If you’re looking out for allergens, these contain soy and egg.

Ingredients look fairly straightforward with the exception of a few processed products such as soy lecithin. These are made with rice flour in place of wheat flour. Ingredients vary depending on what egg roll variety you buy, but the lists also include things such as chicken, multiple types of veggies (including mung beans in the vegetable egg rolls), cornstarch, ginger, eggs, cane sugar, salt, canola oil, yeast extract, baking powder, black pepper, and chili flakes.

The chicken egg rolls contain 110 calories per egg roll, along with 2.5 grams of total fat (4% DV), 0.5 grams of saturated fat (4% DV), 360 mg of sodium (15% DV), 18 grams of total carbohydrates (7% DV), and less than 1 gram of added sugars (1% DV).

The vegetable egg rolls contain 100 calories per egg roll, with 2 grams of total fat (2% DV), no saturated fat, 230 mg of sodium (10% DV), 20 grams of total carbohydrates (7% DV), and 1 gram of added sugars (2% DV).

The packages have directions for baking these or pan frying them.

To bake, preheat a conventional oven or toaster oven to 400 degrees. Place the egg rolls on a baking sheet and bake until they’re golden and crisp, about 20-24 minutes. Turn the egg rolls over halfway through baking.

To pan fry, microwave the egg rolls on high for 30 seconds. In a nonstick pan, heat 1/4 cup of canola oil over medium high heat. Using tongs, carefully place the egg rolls flat side down in the hot oil in the pan. Cook, turning, until golden and crisp, 10-12 minutes.

I chose to bake these in a conventional oven. They took about 25 minutes. They don’t get as golden brown as regular egg rolls, but I wasn’t expecting them to. They did, however, get plenty crispy.

These have the texture of regular egg rolls and are spot on in that regard. In terms of flavor, my family thought they were adequate but not the best-tasting egg rolls. They have a bit of a rice-like aftertaste. Some of the other gluten free foods at Aldi are a lot harder to tell apart from their gluten-laden cousins, but that is not the case here. None of us are sensitive to gluten, though, so for someone who can’t eat gluten, these might be a great way to still enjoy a favorite food. If you haven’t been able to eat egg rolls in a long time and you can’t eat traditional egg rolls, these may be a good option.

The Verdict:

liveGfree Gluten Free Egg Rolls come in chicken or vegetable flavors and feature rice flour in place of wheat flour. They take some time to bake in the oven but turn out nice and crispy. They do have a rice-like aftertaste and are not the greatest gluten free food we’ve tried from Aldi, but if you can’t eat gluten and are craving egg rolls, these are a least worth a try.

  1. My GF daughter approves of these.
    FYI, The gluten free cornbread is a seasonal item here in SW PA, unfortunately. I try to load up in the fall.

  2. Love the egg rolls! I am highly allergic to gluten, so being able to eat these is a treat! Love most of the Live GF items Aldi’s carries, but these are outstanding. Now I am hooked, but can’t find them. Did not realize they were seasonal.
