tanyad added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsIncorrect InformationHello Fellow Celiacs,
I was doing a search on a couple of items for my celiac friend... I did a google search (this is almost as common as calling manufacturers and such)... I came across this website list... and I think that a lot of information is incorrect.
I've been working at this diet for a couple of years, but not everyone has...
I was looking to find butterscotch chips (in the past I have used Hershey's, but I was looking for anything else that may be gluten free) and also York Peppermint patties... I personally have read the label and thought they were safe, but before I tell others, I always like to double check.
Anywho... When someone like myself, comes across inaccurate information on the web... what should I do? And are York Peppermint Patties gluten-free? What about HErshey's Butterscotch chips? Any other butterscotch chips?
Thank you for any feedback!

tanyad added a topic in Gluten-Free RestaurantsKorean Food?Hello Fellow Celiacs-
You have been so helpful in the past...
I am going to a wedding this upcoming weekend, as a date (I do not know the wedding party)... I forwarded my food concerns to my boyfriend and he passed them on to his friend (the groom)... and the groom sent us the list of foods that will be on the buffet. The wedding party is Korean and so is most of the menu.
I will post the list-- I am curious which foods I should definitely avoid and which ones may be ok. (I was told that there is another restaurant in the same place as the reception, if there is not enough for me to eat!) Thank you for any words of advice.
Carving station: Roast Baron of Beef
Korean Style Beef Rib Stew
Fresh Jellyfish Salad
Chef's Choice of Vegetables
Sauteed Mushrooms & Broccoli
Assorted Grilled Patties
Noodle w/Beef & Vegetable ((I would assume a NO on this one))
California Roll/Seaweed Maki
Fried Shrimp or Crab Claws
Mixed Green Salad ((I would assume safe if NO croutons))
Seafood Pasta Salad ((I would assume NO on this one))
----What do you think?? Thank you!

tanyad added a topic in Gluten-Free International Room (Outside USA)Places I Ate In Paris!Hello Fellow Celiacs-
I had posted a few questions about traveling to Paris on this list and I wanted to share my list of restaurants. I had a wonderful time and never got glutened. I found the servers and waiters to be very accomodating... I do not speak french, although I definitely tried. I had such a great trip.
I hope this helps some of you that are soon traveling to Paris!
Ok, so I here is my list (I kept a journal)...
In order in which I ate... I showed my dining card at each place as I ordered!
1) La Table d'Hediard
21, place de la Madeleine
(its on the second floor- first floor wonderful shop of fresh fruits,
wines, jams, and chocolate on the first!)
A tad pricey, but by far my favorite and most delicious meal!!
I ordered Fillet of Roast Beef, fresh greens on the side (30 euros!),
and sorbet for dessert (with out the cookie)
2) Cafe Madeline
1, Rue Trochet - 35, Place de La Madeleine
Only for drinks.
3) Cafe de l'Olympia
I had an Omlet w/chorizo, onions, peppers... with OJ
(sorry don't know address, walking distance from the Arc de Triomphe)
4) Le Reminet
3 Rue Des Grands Degres
(near Notre Dame- probably the one that you have)
I ordered the white fish special of the day, I'm not a fish person,
but it was pretty good.
5) Hagen Daaz
I ate a couple different ones, chocolate, one scoop in a dish
6) Monoprix grocery type stores
Found allergo brand gluten free stuff-- loved the chocolate chip
muffins. chocolate chip cookies not so good, herb cracker things-funny
texture, and saltine like crackers- not sure. The wine at this store
was very reasonably priced. I also purchased some corn chips.
7) Relais Trochet
14, Rue Trochet
The guy that helped me, was wonderful. I showed him my french dining
card, and he responded "no problem". He was truly great! I had a
chicken salad, with out dressing, and served with lemon. It was very
Here is the link of the card I liked the most- (I also printed one
English, so I knew what it said!)
8) Took day trip to Versailles, I packed snacks. I ate fries at the
little food place in the gardens. They were tasty.
9) Indiana Cafe (near Opera)- I think there are several-
7, bd des Capucines
It is a very American/variety menu... I had a salad, with avacado, and
10) Went to Louvre- heard good things about Cafe Marley... opted to
not go, with a burger costing 19 euros...
11) Instead we went to Le Musset (and I guess they have a website -
5, rue de l'Echelle
We had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table. I had a lovely salad -
with chicken, cucumbers, tomatoes, rice, lettuce, carrots and maybe
more! And they also had Berthillion sorbets and ice cream. I asked for
creme broule for dessert, but the waiter, wasn't sure if flour was
mixed in with it... so I had the most delicious cherry and strawberry
12) Be sure to stop by the Fauchon shop for jams... and be sure to
stop by the Mustard Shop Maille-- fresh mustard- if you like that sort
I think that is it. I stayed near the Opera and Le Madeleine area... so most places are near that.
I would suggest that you bring a french dining card. Also pack snacks.
I carried a Think Organic bar with me at all times. It was nice to
have snacks in the hotel room also.
If you have any other questions, let me know. I had such a wonderful time in Paris!
Have a nice trip!
