I read on another site that they are considering dropping their gluten-free menu and anti-cross-contamination kitchen policies. :( They have chosen a location in Destin, FL to test market the change, and they no longer offer specific gluten free options though they'll try to accommodate individual requests as they come in. 

 

I don't live near a CiP but I've eaten there when I've traveled and always felt pretty good about their reputation for gluten-safe food. I wrote them a letter. I wonder whether other CiP patrons might be interested in writing letters to them as well. 

 

Apparently the chain is under new management. :(

I was the one Brigala heard of this from the other site. 

 

We were sooooo disappointed last night when we went to the Destin, FL location.  We asked for the gluten-free menu as the hostess was gathering menus & silverware just like we usually do and she paused and said, "uh, I think you need talk to the server about that."  That should have been our first clue but we just thought she was new or something.  Nope, we asked our server and he said they no longer had a gluten-free menu.  They no longer had the separately rolled silverware either. 

 

The manager at this location is fabulous, I guess his long-time girlfriend has celiacs so he knows a fair amount about it, and it's honestly been the safest place for us to eat other than at home.  He told us they could accommodate us still.  He said they still had the gluten-free buns and he could make the fries gluten-free.  He said to look over the menu and he could prob change most of it to make sure it was made gluten-free.  It was our anniversary and we were looking to celebrate, not to once again have to go line by line on a menu with a manager or cook, just to find out that while most of the items could be made gluten-free that also means they take off all the sauces and flavoring.  I know you all know exactly what I'm talking about.  My family (which consists of 2 celiacs, 1 gluten intolerant, and 1 "regular" eater) was looking forward to the loaded chips.  They no longer have the chips at all.  The manager thought that maybe he had enough ingredients to make some loaded fries that would be similar.  Like I said, he's a fabulous manager and I'm sure whatever he came up with would have been safe to eat.  However that's not what we were looking for.  We wanted our loaded chips.  We wanted our gluten-free menu that we could peruse and select from.  Ugh, I know I'm preaching to the choir here.

 

So we got up and left.  I wrote a complaint letter to CIP this morning & my husband is e-mailing one as I type this.  My 5 year old celiac daughter says she wants to write one too.

 

The manager explained to us before we left that CIP was bought out in December.  He said the Destin location is the test location now so the "new" menu we were given last night is not online at all.  All the other CIP still have the regular menu and the gluten-free menu at this time.  However they are trying to roll out a new menu without the gluten-free menu.  He said they'll be keeping the gluten-free bun (which I'm sorry, their gluten-free bun sucks, we told him they should get a better one) but that's about it at this point.  He promised to pass on our feedback.

 

If you love CIP please e-mail them, facebook them, call, or mail them a letter with your comments!

    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
