  1. Thanks everyone..tried Badger Balm and it didn't work. Tried Repel when I read the thread that was just posted to me...but it said to not apply to face so i didn't..mosquitoes went for my face *sigh* I dunno what to do anymore. We also have Cutters to try out. Haven't really wanted to experiment lately as I already have well over 20-30 bites on my body that need to heal. For the most part though...i'm not itching now. I just cannot relax since that trip and have been feeling sick on and off. I am having a hard time in the car especially. I would love it if herbal stuff worked but alas....i am always seeing bees around and the other thing that worries me about herbal is sometimes we Live Action Roleplay here locally..there are black bears locally...are herbal repellents going to be like leaving a sandwich out to a bear and will it come after me then? lol
  2. Lately I've been using the product "After bite" because of bad mosquito bites i received about a week ago...i've been wearing jeans ever since so i don't think i'm accidentally touching it and then my mouth...I keep forgetting to call the company to find out if there is gluten in this product....i do have breaks in my skin from intense scratching of the bites and i'm wondering...can gluten get into the blood stream and cause the autoimmune reaction? I have not been feeling well since the trip i got bitten up on and i'm very curious about this because i started using it practically right away. I had also tried a badger balm stick to keep the mosquitoes away but alas it didn't work. Not sure if that if gluten free for sure either but i heard someone on here had said that so i tried it...i wasn't very well prepared for this trip =\ I've heard cutters is gluten free and picked some of that up but need to call them to confirm as well. But anyhow....can you get glutened from it entering into your bloodstream via an open wound?
  3. This may sound strange but me and my husband were in the grocery store earlier and i picked up a straw hat and put it on my head when suddenly i realized i don't have a clue what straw hats are made from? it's not wheat or anything is it???? lol
  4. Really really strange...well...I honestly trust the fact that they say they label properly...i still use their shredded cheese and what not but i'm just a little nervous now but a lady i talked to on the phone the same day as the guy who originally told me this....she said what you all are it's rather confusing. Seems like there is a divide with the phone representatives.
  5. Gee I wonder if it's the same guy I got on the phone before? So i SHOULDN'T assume spices means gluten then like he was saying?
  6. Oh I didn't want the cheese whiz but my mom may put it on my gluten free hamburger bun for instance and put it in the oven to toast it to have hamburgers etc. I just called about their peanut butter..and the guy...who i hope isn't the same guy...gave me the same talk about labeling and i felt okay about it but then he went on a seperate shpiel and said if it lists "spices" on the label or anything like that to ASSUME IT HAS GLUTEN. So I said to him this confused me cause I thought kraft was a company that if the spices contain gluten it will list it in brackets next to it....he said to assume it does...anyone out there eating kraft products that list "spices"? Just sheer curiosity.
  7. To add to this now..I called them about something from my grandmothers house the other day...regarding a jello chocolate pudding snack. I wasn't sure about what one ingredient was and i wanted to be sure so i called them and the guy on the phone told me it contained stuff derived from gluten.....even though nothing was clearly i was confused....Later on that day I called them again about something else unexpectedly and the woman on the line told me the same thing you have...they will clearly list. But when i told her about what the guy told me about the jello she didn't know why he'd say it contains it and to not eat it if it's not clearly listed. I wonder if it was the same guy who told me that about cheese whiz? It's only causing me confusion..should i eat the cheese whiz and pudding snacks or not? uugh
  8. So in the states I always get this product and it says certified gluten in Canada on my husband bought another flavor and it's certified gluten free....i got my chocolate again and it DOESN'T say it..and I'm after eating it.....I'm very confused..have I been glutening myself since being here? It doesn't have the gluten free symbol on it...anywhere up I have to wait till tomorrow to call the company *sigh*.
  9. Knowing they were suppose to be updating labels this month to say gluten free I e-mailed them and received this reply this afternoon (I am currently back home in Newfoundland, Canada)... "Thank you for contacting us. The FDA requires that we list the following allergens on our ingredient labels: 1. Egg 2. Soybean (excluding high refined oil) 3. Dairy 4. Peanut 5. Wheat (barley, rye, oats, or any source of gluten) 6. Fish 7. Crustacean 8. Tree Nut For the most accurate source of information, please check the back of the ingredient panel for every purchase as ingredients may change. Additionally, the term "Natural Flavor" is proprietary to our formula however, if any of the allergens listed above were present in the natural flavors it would be called out specifically on the ingredient panel. Further, none of our products are manufactured on dedicated lines. Again, thank you for contacting us. Sincerely, Mayra Linares Consumer Response Representative Consumer Services" How are they claiming gluten free without dedicated lines or at least telling us that they clean them? I'm very confused after that...
  10. I just called them actually and they said if wheat is included it will be on the label..wheat is the only form of gluten they would use she said. She said they have a big washdown of the shared lines in between and they change the oil and wash down that too seems unlikely to me anything would be left *shrug* Just read the label to make sure it's a gluten free product.
  11. I'm in Canada right now visiting my family..I was calling some companies making sure about different foods that mom has here in the house..I was informed by Kraft that Cheese Whiz is NOT gluten free. I read on this website it there a difference between U.S. and Canada or what?
  12. hahahaha Yes b'y we're like a plague taking over the planet! ;D Almost anywhere you go you can run into another Newfoundlander haha ;D But that's certainly awesome news about the labeling. I guess the trip after this one it will probably be implemented! Right now I'm worried about finding products i know are safe down here...going home on my visit and finding the same product and it turning out it's not gluten free.
  13. Tim Hortons- Calling All Canadians! Lol

    Hehehe hey we're all different people with different tastes *shrug* I like both Starbucks and Timmy's. Since living down here all we can get are Starbucks...we miss the fraps though. SO husband gets iced coffee during the summer and is fine. We're doing okay without the fraps..hopefully we're not getting glutened by the coffee somehow but I doubt it as's just coffee? lol
  14. Tim Hortons- Calling All Canadians! Lol

    Yeah I wondered about that too...seems i get a tummy ache here and there so maybe i should stay away from it for now...i dunno...maybe i'll wait a while and look at it as...maybe next time i visit i'll try it. I've only been gluten free. Like really putting in the effort to be completely since I found out may 10th. So....i guess i'll bring ziplock baggies of stuff in my bookbag i carry around. My husband really wants Tim Horton's coffee so i suggested maybe he bring a thermos and get them to fill it to lessen the risk of cups with possible flour particles from the donuts and bagels in them etc. So some things may be more do-able than others.
  15. Tim Hortons- Calling All Canadians! Lol

    I THINK it's a Lawton's Drugs in the mall. Like Shoppers but not Shoppers. New York Fries I thought was a good one but then i've heard of people being glutened somehow and figured some part of the buns for the hot dogs got into the oil? i dunno...very nervous. I personally don't even need seasoning on those so I was gonna avoid it but *sighs* There IS a asian place i think tho. Hopefully some plain steamed rice or rice noodles yeah *sighs* So irritating!
