Recently the King Soopers (aka City Market, Kroeger) in my area have added a freezer of gluten-free products. Since my diagnosis almost a year ago they have started flagging gluten-free items in the aisles (not because of me obviously) but it is nice to see them doing this.

The Freezer they ahve in the frozen foods section is a lot of kinnickkinnick items. Some Ihad not seen in stores before. I bought their 6 pack of cinnamon-sugar donuts. Finally had them this morning, they were great! I had yet to try a good donut, this beat my expectations!

If this trend continues I hope to be able tos top shopping at three different stores every time I go grocery shopping. Though I will admit, until Whole Foods ($2.49) and King Soopers ($2.29) can meet the $1.89 per box price on Vans Wheat Free Original Waffles at Super Target I will continue to buy my waffles there.

I also live in Colorado, Colorado Springs. Have you heard of the Udi bread? Its supposed to be the wonder bread for the celiac world. The owner, Anne I believe is her name is launching it at the kings supers on Austin Bluffs and Academy. Haven't made my way up there yet but heard it is unbelievable. The vice president of kroger is celiac and got tired of having to go to other stores to buy what she needs so this is why they are so into this right now, which is good for all of us :)

I got it wrong so wanted to correct myself. She is an assistant manager in Colorado Springs and has made alot of progress in helping grocery store awareness. Go Pam! Here is an insert from the "Rocky Mountain Post"

]Five years ago, Pam Jones was down to 87 pounds before a doctor finally diagnosed her stomach ailments correctly. Jones, an assistant store manager for King Soopers in Colorado Springs, has celiac disease, a digestive malfunction brought on by abnormal reaction to glutens. She must avoid such foods as wheat, rye and barley.

As more people are diagnosed - some 3 million people suffer from it - companies are stepping up to the plate. First, small restaurants/ bakeries such as Deby's Gluten Free Gourmet in Denver began to find solutions, now the "big guys" are getting on board.

At a media launch last week, King Soopers introduced its expanded line of gluten- and wheat-free products. Jones was instrumental in getting the program off the ground, approaching her employer when she found that she was having trouble finding the gluten-free products that she - and her customers - were looking for. She is also responsible for the gluten free labeling in the aisles!

Thanks Kathy, that does remind me, in the freezer, there was a section for Udi's bread, but it was empty. I was actually excited to see that. Udi's used to cater a lot of lunches at a former employer of mine. I always loved their bread in my pre-diagnosis days. :)

I live in Arvada and the store at 80th and Wads is pretty bad about gluten-free products, but the store at 80th and Sheridan kicks butt and has TONS of Kinnickinnick items!!! I was able to do all my shopping there rather than stopping at Vitamin Cottage. I do like to pop into VC every now and then because they have the new gluten-free cereal by Envirokidz (it is chocolate and PB puff cereal).

I've been very pleased with the Kroger trend!

Seriously . . . have you ever walked into Super Target and just gotten the waffles? You need to take into account that while you are there, you've picked up a new movie for the kids, some basket/organizer stuff because you are FINALLY going to clear off the computer desk, and look, they've got some towels and bedding on clearance . . . now how much did your waffles cost you?

:lol::lol:

You mean I am not alone in Colorad Springs. Udi is awesome and I am so so happy that King Soopers is now open we were just there last night. Their sandwich bread is great and their blueberry muffins are like angelfood cake. Thanks to a friend of mine who is alwyas looking out for me she saw them in a King Sooper sale flyer one week and that is how I found out about them.

In regard to Super Target, keep in mind I am a guy, getting in and out of Target is not a problem for me. And I stand corrected, the Target prices are accurate, but I was JUST at whole foods and they are 2.99 a box for the waffles.

I have only seen the Vans Wheat Free waffles at Super Target not at a regular Target. :)

I just got some Udi's white sandwich bread, OMG. It is real bread, it is so good. I am saved.

I am, as I type this, eating an Udi's cinnamon roll! It's like a real cinnamon roll! I'm starting a new thread dedicated to Udi's!

Kroger's is very helpful I spoke with one manager and asked him regarding carrying my favorite breads Katz Challah bread and there sweets like the marble cake and they were very cooperative and said they will look into this so I hope they will get it in soon

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I called this doctor's office again to inquire if my medical records have been corrected. When I called to amend my records because there was inaccurate information, the staff member told me that I need to write my complaint in email to doctor. So, that's  what I did. The doctor wrote things I said that I didn't say, which changed the meaning of what I said so I wanted to correct that. I talked to a different staff member today who irritated me in the past by saying things she was going to do which she never did. Her tone of voice is condescending and argumentative like she refuses to help you or that's probably what makes me feel irate. Today she said the doctor wasn't going to commit fraud by writing something I told her to write. I don't feel irate when I talk to the other staff member who answers the phone. Anyway, this staff member said she printed my email for the doctor to read, and she'll reply when she wants to reply (never). I said that it's not the doctor's choice to choose whether or not to correct inaccurate information in medical records. I said I think by law, it must be done so if the doctor continues to ignore my request to correct inaccurate information, then I should probably file a medical complaint somewhere. Finally, the doctor called me back. She asked what was inaccurate when I said I wanted to correct the incorrect information. Then, I asked if she read my email. She said she did not have time to read patient STORIES. I said a good doctor would make the time to read a request to correct inaccurate information in a patient's medical record. Then, she said I'm sick to keep writing letters to her. I said I only wrote one email to her and it was because a staff member said that is how to amend the inaccurate information. She added that if I really had physical symptoms, I would not have been able to get a college degree or write letters to her. Although I explained to her during my consult that I took online classes and did homework in bed with lots of breaks, she thinks I must be pretending to have symptoms. I also explained during my consult that half of my dizziness and migraines are gone since being on a gluten-free diet. Yes, this makes sense why her office makes me feel so irate! I ended the call by asking if she was going to correct the inaccurate in my medical records. She kept rambling on how only sick people keep writing letters to doctor. Again, I told her I only wrtote one email to her and that's because her staff member told me to correct inaccurate information in record. The staff member recommended this instead of filling out a record amendment form, which I don't think they have. She said file a complaint like it was a joke. Since my neurologist referred me to her when I inquired about help for my memory problems, I'm afraid she will tell him negative things about me. Her office is just across the hall from his. Doctors are more likely to take the word of another doctor over a patient. In contrast to this doctor, my neurologist is a real competent doctor. Do you ever think that sometimes doctors are crazy, but they get away with making others think it's the patient who is crazy because they are more powerful? This doctor is a neuropsychiatrist. I will never see a neuropsychiatrist again due to this bad experience.  My appointment with the neurologist is in another week. I don't know if I should briefly mention my bad experience with this doctor so he won't believe her if she tells him that I am faking my symptoms. It would be like I was faking my whole life if I was faking my symptoms. Maybe I could say something like the brain testing wasn't very helpful with that doctor since she assumed my symptoms were all in my head  because I graduate from high school and obtained a college degree in the past. I also told her during my consult that I received average grades in high school because I often went straight to bed after school not having chance to do homework. This feels like abuse or abuse of power from the doctor. I wish I recorded the phone conversation with this doctor calling me names.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Hello to all -this is my first entry! I am checking with everyone to see if they have been having a reaction to the Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin (chocolate) shake mix after drinking it.  When you read the label on the container, it states that it has Oat Fiber in it -but then reading online through their website it shows the ingredients contain "wheat products".  I don't have severe Celiacs but now that I have been gluten-free for 7 years, I notice when things aren't right.  I started (my wife starting giving to me) the Nature's Bounty mix around 4 months ago -but have only recently (within the last month) been experiencing stomach pains after drinking (pretty much immediately -before I am even done with it). Does anyone else have this issue?  Does anyone know specifically if it is NOT gluten-free?  It does not state so on the container or on their website. Thank you for any input you can provide. Pete
    • Gluten-Free Safety Starts Here
      How many of us have suffered from cross contamination? Most celiacs have felt the side effects of getting gluten in their food. If it is not your own kitchen, utensils, pots or pans it can be a bit nerve racking. It is not only extremely unpleasant, but unhealthy to our intestines as well. It can cause damage that can be very detrimental in the long run. View the full article
    • Help!! Testing 3 1/2 year old
      Your son is very young and it is extremely difficult most times to diagnose a young child.  Many do not develop enough damage to trip a blood test for conclusive results until more time has gone by and more damage occurs....which you want to try and avoid.  I would definitely get a second opinion and maybe even schedule an endo.
      If those come back inconclusive, then I would do a strict dietary trial to see if his symptoms get better or go away.  Include the gene testing also for purposes of ruling the genetics for it out. What caught my attention were his symptoms.  Those are very specific to Celiac, or can be.  Mouth sores, abdominal complaints and skin rashes.  I had canker sores as a kid and stomach issues but no one was looking for Celiac back then and there were no blood tests. So....I ended up going to the age of 46 before I was diagnosed with Celiac, not to mention the 3 other AI diseases I acquired along the way. That should not happen to anyone. If his symptoms go away or improve greatly, then document this and take it back to a doctor for his record. The diet is not hard to do but it is not convenient. I would say a dietary trial as a last resort is important because undiagnosed Celiac can really take it's toll on people and diagnosing or ruling it out in kids can be especially challenging.

      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.
