Rita's Italian Ice
0

21 posts in this topic

I just wanted to post a reminder for everyone that Rita's is mostly gluten free. Obviously avoid the flavors that sound like they have gluten in them like cookie dough and avoid cones, OREO and Nilla Wafer toppers, and pretzels. Everything that has gluten in it is pretty obvious.

I took Tori there today to get a Misto shake and the girl behind the counter had Celiac!!! Imagine my surprise!!! She assured me that machines aren't shared for things that would have gluten UNLESS there's a flavor available that day that has gluten in it like cookie dough flavor. Anyway, she assured me again that the only things containing gluten are the obvious ones. :)

Eh... Isn't that what men are for??? Just kidding. In all seriousness though, a man that will do that for his woman is a rare find. Hold on to that one.

Yes.

Yes, they are a rare and great find. My husband is famous for dishing me up ice cream on Saturday mornings and bringing it to me in bed. No wonder I married him!

Aww thanks, He is a very good guy. He does a lot for me, and he was there the whole time I was sick and didn't know about the celiac, he was by my side the whole time. He took me to the appointments and the various tests. I feel very lucky.

Don was the same way. He didn't take me to the doctor, but he watched Tori and got up in the middle of the night with her even though he had to be at work in the morning. I think he even ended up cooking some meals because I was so sick. I was pretty much bed ridden before I was diagnosed. When I was in the hospital for that week before they tested for Celiac he took care of Tori and still managed to get in to see me a few times. He's a good man. He's gone out at 11pm to get me chocolate bars (pregnant).

It's nice to know that there are some good men in the world. Thank God we've found ourselves some, huh?

My husband was/is the same way! I'm glad you ladies have wonderful husbands, too :D

I really don't know how I would have gotten through this thing without him.

I love Rita's :P

Well, maybe I was wrong about the good men being few and far between... It seems like lots of us have great guys that support us.

You know, you're right. Most of us have been through a heck of a time too before we got diagnosed. We all deserve "the good ones". :)

Not to be a "wet blanket" but can we rely on a company's info without questionning it at regular intervals that their receipes or methods remained gluten-free from one year to another?

No, we can't. That's why I asked as soon as Rita's opened this year. That's why I posted the reminder, because I checked and nothing had changed since last year.
