  1. I'm glad to have found this post on here, because I was absolutely disgusted about the "joke" as well. I posted on facebook about it & was told (more than once) that I was overreacting. Of course, by people who don't have celiac disease, so I guess I should consider the source. I sent a sharply worded email to CBS letting them know that the joke was in poor taste. Ignorant attitudes like this are the reason we aren't taken seriously. I've been accused of having an eating disorder bc of my weight & not only is it untrue but also extremely hurtful. CBS just lost me as a viewer completely.
  2. Lay's Potato Chips?

    I am super sensitive, so its a good possibility that she is, also. I don't think we're coming down with any bugs because I feel totally fine today. My husband & 3 other children are not gluten-free (yet) but we are very, very careful. My husband & I are the only ones who ever touch the food & we make sure our hands are clean. However, this will not be an issue for much longer because my 3 other children had the blood tests a few weeks ago & 2 of them had levels through the roof (my youngest daughter's results were so high that they sent them back to be retested). As soon as they have the biopsies & diagnosis, then our entire family will be gluten-free. That's the other reason I was wondering about Lay's; I will soon be packing a lot more school lunches. Plus, we all love chips now & then! In the future, I suppose we just won't have the regular Lay's chips anymore. I have never gotten sick from the Stax so I might stick with those. Or, I may just start making my own potato chips! :-D I appreciate all the replies, thank you all so much! I'm so glad to belong to an online community like this where I can have questions answered.
  3. My daughter & I both have celiac disease. I was diagnosed at 2 years old & she was just recently diagnosed at age 7. She takes her lunch to school every day now, so I started searching for chips that are gluten-free. I enjoy Lays Stax, but she doesn't so I thought I'd try the Original Wavy Lays. The website says gluten free, so does the package. However, she ate them yesterday & this morning she felt sick, tired & irritable. I ate them today (a few hours ago) and went from feeling great to feeling contaminated; tired, extremely irritable & I have a headache. Has anyone else had issues with this? As of right now, neither of us has been diagnosed with any other allergies. I am very sensitive to carrageenan, though.
