I think this is exciting!  I've been gluten free for almost nine years.  And I love the progress.  I am certain that it won't fit everyone's shoes, but I love what's happening in the market place.  (I hope it's not disected so much, that it's pulled from the product listing).  We are a wide scope of peeps.  :D

 

Thanks for posting this Karen.

Thanks for posting this Karen.

I'm hopeful! These are not items for everyday use but might make a nice, easy treat. I'm hoping slightly cheaper or at least more accessible.

This is good news.

 

I read the comments where the link took me and Geez, Louise, some people are really negative.There were people slamming it for what it had in it, even before anyone knew what the actual ingredients were. Maybe it isn't for everybody, but I am going to wait for the facts before I pass judgement.

 

Gluten-free offerings from mainstream companies heighten awareness and offer more choices for us. You are, of course, free to choose not to use it.

 

To clarify, my remarks are addressed to the comments on the other forum, not to those posting here.

I'll withhold my excitement until I see the rest of the ingredients...hoping they are dairy free.

I sent them a note that they should list the ingredients on the website.  Maybe if they get a few requests for an ingredient list, they will add it?

I sent them a note. I am simply sitting back and reserving judgement until I know what is in these things. They aren't the sort of thing anyone, gluten free or not, should be eating regularly, as if you want pizza, or cookies, or pie/pastries you should be making it because it is healthier, one of the most missed things I find for me is the convenience. And to be honest, there are occasions I would consider selling my soul for crescent rolls. :ph34r:

I rarely use a pie crust but the ready-made gluten-free ones I have seen are shaped and in a pan.  These look like a tub.  That would make them nice to use for appetizers like empanadas or pinwheels or such.

I thought immediately of muffin pans. I swear I feel some days like 95% of the recipes on Pinterest are crescent rolls in a muffin pan. Without ready made crust type objects available, the convenience of the recipe is right out the window so what the heck is the point? Rolling out and cutting is about a billion times faster than making, rolling and cutting. Plus, lets face it... some people are not people pie crust makers.

AWESOME news....hopefully it won't be long before we'll have that beloved can of biscuits popping open -- I know they are bad for us...but some days you just want an easy biscuit and I do miss popping those cans open on occasion -- I think I had more fun with popping those than popping champagne -- of course I was never much for the bubbly...but an easy bacon egg and cheese biscuit was my comfort item in years gone by.

 

The pie crust looks interesting -- will be able to make chicken pot pies a bit more easily : )

Lay the crescent rolls (without rolling them) in an oblong casserole dish so they touch and hang over the sides. Put a 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick layer of cream cheese on them. Now open a can of fruit (peaches are good) and pour it on top. Fold the hanging ends of the crescent rolls over the top. Bake it in the oven for a while until it looks done.  

 

I've never DONE this, mind you, but I watched someone else make this at a party once. I couldn't eat it, but everyone else was raving about it.

Apparently I got the condescending @ss in their customer service department. I guess at least he had the decency to use my actual name.

 

"Dear Ms. ******

 

Thank you for contacting us concerning Pillsbury gluten free products. We appreciate the opportunity to address this matter.

 

These products will not even be available in stores until June or July 2013. At this time, we do not have ingredient information available for them on the website because they are a brand new product. Please check back at a later time.

 

If you have any further questions or concerns, please let us know.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Jeremy Gold
Consumer Services"

 

I'm sorry, but I worked a lot of years in customer service, and the way he worded that is condescending and just plain rude. The tone just makes it sound like I am a moron for asking when they won't even be available for months. Maybe if they don't want people contacting them about it now they shouldn't have put on their facebook page that there will be a limited national release at the end of May, which is the pretty immediate future.

I wondered if they haven't finalized the ingredients yet? Maybe they will see how the limited release goes and change the ingredients if they don't do well.

They have to have ingredients for the limited release product. It isn't like updating a website is rocket science if they end up changing it. But if they weren't ready to roll out with it in a few weeks, and weren't sure a product was good, they wouldn't have announced it already. Which means that at this point they do have what they believe is a good product and do know what its ingredients are.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
