I saw decorate your own marshmallow peeps packages in CVS. I called the company just to double check that they were gluten free and also lactose free - and they are. The woman was very nice and said that all their products are gluten free. Yay!

Several things here: 1) I didn't know that my kids and I were the only people in the world who made a habbit out of biting the heads off Marshmallow Peeps Chicks. That is frightening. 2) I was REALLY glad when the dietician told me that Peeps were gluten-free 3) I have NEVER heard of microwaving them, didn't think about them getting bloated, and I can't WAIT to get to the store to buy SEVERAL packages!!!!!

Thanks for the GREAT idea, Richard!

Peeps are made almost all year round. I've seen Pumpkins, stars, hearts, christmas trees, even 4th of July ones. They have a website & maybe they show them. I know that's were I saw the co. state that they are gluten-free.

Unfortunately peeps ARE gluten free (I'm not a fan).

However, as Richard mentioned they ARE fun to microwave. I personally LOVE to blow them up in the microwave. Always remember to place them on something that you want to throw away, because they are SUPER hard to get off of the plate or whatever you put them on.

Also, here is a fun website devoted to peep research! ha (aka blowing them up, drounding them, etc) It's good for a few laughs.

Are we the only family that opens the package and lets them sit out on the counter for about week before eating so they get chewy???

Momandgirls, My sons and I are also weird in that we like to experiment with chicks and peeps. My oldest son loves peeps, but is diabetic, but I would let him have a couple at Easter after eating a protein-rich meal. Our whole family loves them stale. If they are a little chewy, you really feel like you've eaten something instead of slivering down! We also liked to microwave them and (before I went gluten free) made the best 'smores that way with them!! Yes, we are weird, too. The only way to be! :P

I like to leave my peeps open in the fridge so that they get all cold and hard. Then I bite off the heads.

I like them just a little bit stale too. I have to say the strawberry heart Peeps I got from my BF for valentines day were really, really yummy. Just a hint of strawberry flavor. I'm going to the grocery store after work today to do a normal shopping run, and after this thread, have taken out my list and added peeps.

Thanks guys.

    • Blood results - odd
      Hi I have been given a  working diagnosis of celiac disease TTG 103. I had the endoscopy yesterday and I am awaiting celiac serology ( tests go to a different lab so take longer). my GI Dr ordered more tests and some have come back odd, my ferrtain was 9 ( range 20-204) my folate 4.4 ( range 3.1 - 20.5) my B12 982 ( range 187-883). FBC  mean cell volume 76.9 ( range 80-100) mean cell haemaglobim 24 ( range 26.9 - 32) mchc 312 ( range 320- 359).   All other results appear to be in the normal range.  My question is the high B12 is odd, has any one else had anemia/ b12 deficiency symtoms whilst having high B12.   I went to the Dr as I am feeling awful, dizzy, palpitations and breathlessness and think it's to do with my iron, my gp was beyond useless and thinks it's all due to an infection as I had a temperature of 37.9. I still feel awful but not Like I have flu awful if that makes sense. I have gone gluten free as I have had the panel and the endoscopy now but feeling so much worse than I have in a long time. Gp has taken blood for CRP and FBC to rule out sepsis as I was feeling pretty broken as he though my iron levels would not cause these symptoms. I am going to try and get hold of my GI Dr or his sectary tomorrow and go back to the Gp and beg for iron.

    • Washing Dishes
      Gluten is a very sticky protein that cannot be removed easily. Non porous items can be washed safely and effectively, being very careful to throughly rinse, use a dedicated sponge/washcloth to wash. If washed by hand wash and rinse under hot running water not in a sink of water if you don't have a dedicated gluten free kitchen. My kitchen is totally gluten free and I still rinse under running water. I attempted to use the dishwasher for the first time yesterday and I feel like I've been glutened so I'm not sure if it's safe or not. There was no gluten containing dishes in it, but it's a rental house so God knows how the previous tenants used it and whether there may be any lingering gluten in it. I also have other issues that cause a lot of the same problems so I'm going to keep trying to use it for a few days and see if I continue to feel glutened or not. As far as counter tops, sinks etc, any non porous surfaces can be wiped clean, but it takes multiple wipe downs with multiple sponges. Thoroughly wipe down and rinse out the sink to rid it off any lose gluten particles. The same thing I did when first going gluten free. Only the kitchen I had then had laminated counter tops that were all scratched up. There is no getting gluten out of those kind of counter tops or cracks around the sink, etc. The ONLY way to possibly destroy/remove gluten from surfaces it's stuck in is to heat it above temperatures most things cannot tolerate and not all ovens can reach. You're looking at like 600°-700° F for a minimum of 30 min. So some stuff can be effectively cleaned in the self cleaning mode of an oven if it has one. Most cookware and utensils cannot tolerate those temperatures though and it's impossible to heat counters and other items to that temperature. Therefore being in a blended house is very risky if not done right. When I went gluten free everyone in my house went gluten free. Except the fish, you can't find gluten free fish food. My husband who shouldn't eat gluten anyway is gluten free and all our animals are on a grain free diet. Even my snake is gluten free since I breed my own feeder mice and feed them a gluten free organic diet. 
    • to biopsy or not?
      A small suggestion........for banana bread, try the King Arthur gluten free banana bread mix.  Yeah, I know......it's a mix but sometimes, time is short and a mix works well.  My husband and I were shocked at how good this is!  it rose up high and beautiful in the oven and has a really good banana flavor to it.  Really....give it a try.  It is so easy to make also! http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/gluten-free-banana-bread   The ATK cookbook is a keeper for every Celiac!
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Yup.....what she said!  In non-porous materials such as stainless steel or aluminum pans, a good washing is all you need to make the pan safe to use.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
