My family LOVES Ovaltine (or at least did, before the onset of gluten free life).  However, in my inbox this morning, appears a beautiful, high value, $1.50 off ANY ONE OVALTINE PRODUCT coupon.  So, after ignoring the existence of Ovaltine for the last 3 years, of course I had to do some investigation, because I cannot pass up a coupon that will practically make an item free on sale.

This is what I found:

Nestle has bought the rights to Ovaltine in the last few years.  I contacted Nestle and asked.  Of course the Chocolate Malt and Classic Malt flavors are absolutely not GF.  But the Rich Chocolate I wasn’t so sure about. The ingredients all look pretty benign.  The answer I got was that it does not in itself contain gluten, but is processed on the same equipment as the other flavors, and therefore carries the disclaimer of possibly containing wheat.

So, I leave it to you if you want to try it.  Has anyone tried this and gotten sick, or tried it and had no problems? I would love to hear some feedback.  Meanwhile, I have to decide whether I want to try to use my coupon.  If you would like one of your own, head over to the Nestle Family page and sign up to receive emails.  Maybe you’ll get lucky and get the same one!

OR, you can go here to print a $1/1 coupon.  You will need to sign up here as well.

    No, it won’t print. I posted the link in error before. You have to receive it directly in your inbox for it to print. Sign up with Nestle, maybe you’ll get lucky! I’m sorry…..

    I tried to print the coupon from Ovaltine’s website, and it wouldn’t let me, so I emailed them. I just received a letter back saying they are going to mail me a one time good will coupon as a way of apologizing. How nice!!
