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.

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.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
