IN SEARCH OF...THE ELUSIVE GF KIT KAT!

So where can one find gluten-free Kit Kat knockoffs in New York City?

Well, as I wrote at the end of my wrap-up of The View's March 14 celiac coverage, I think the species of gluten-free food that is closest to the common Kit Kat is the Glutano Break Bar...which can be found at the Upper West Side Fairway.

You might think that Glutino Chocolate Wafers come close to Kit Kats, too. I believe they're more available than Glutano Break Bars...and they're also at the UWS Fairway. So you can do an on-the-spot comparison.

Both products are in the UWS Fairway's gluten-free section, which also seems to double as a utility closet. (They might be available elsewhere in the city, too, so feel free to list locations in the comments section.)

Here is a den of Fairway Break Bars (and Big Breaks--the male of the species?) tucked behind a ladder.



















And here are the Glutino Chocolate Wafers.

I LOVE the Glutano Break Bars!!! They are available on Staten Island at FIT Foods in Great Kills, and at all of the Family Health food stores (West Brighton, Manor Road, New Dorp, Tottenville.
