"There are still people in the market to purchase vehicles," spokesman Steve Nolan says. "We want to make sure Cars.com is front and center for those people … and those who'll return to market as soon as demand starts picking up."
Hold the glutens
"Gluten-free" is becoming the food term du jour. There are more than 2,000 gluten-free products on the market for folks with wheat allergies, reports the U.S. Department of Agriculture. (Gluten is a composite of wheat proteins.) Gluten-free foods had double-digit sales growth in the last year.
Perhaps that helped to nudge the Big Boys of food products to join the action:
•General Mills makes gluten-free Rice Chex.
•Frito-Lay offers gluten-free Cheetos, Doritos and Lays snacks.
•Anheuser-Busch produces Redbridge beer, which isn't made with wheat or barley.
There's even a cookbook on gluten-free baking from the Culinary Institute of America.
And, combining the best of two worlds, 1-year-old Whole Bakers makes Rockin Choco Chip cookies and Chewy Choco Bites that are certified kosher and gluten-free.
