711 Slurpees

6 posts in this topic

This is the response I got from 711 when I inquired about the gluten in Slurpees. It had my original message in the middle.

Unfortunately the list of ingredients on the website is all we have to go by at this point, but we are working on getting more detailed information. Stay tuned!

Why do some of the slurpees say they have gluten and some don't list ingreidients? Do they all contain gluten? What do you put in a slurpee that has gluten? The soda (like coke & Mt Dew) is gluten free.

Many of us with gluten problems are wondering.

Thanks and Keep on Slurpin!

When I looked on the website, some flavors like the new orange or Mt dew flavors listed ingredients and said that they contain gluten. The Coca Cola flavor lsited calories, etc but no ingredients or gluten info. It appears from this reply that 711 doesn't know what is in the Slurpees. Bummer, cause on a hot day I really like a Coke Slurpee.

If it is any consolation, my super-senstive Celiac and gluten-intolerant husband both have slurpees often with no trouble.

I just saw a post about the 'ChaCha' (?) phone number you can text and it tells you answers...anyways it said that 711 slurpees were gluten free. I'll try and find the post again to see the exact wording!

I thought the Cha Cha was cool but wondered where they get the info and if its correct? That was why I looked on 711s website. On the website they said they listed gluten on some flavors. That's why I wrote them and apparently they don't know what is in the Slurpees. Still wonder where Cha Cha got the info. Not sure you should trust Cha Cha when we have conflicting info from the source (711)

I can't guarantee this, but I'm betting the "gluten" 7-Eleven says some Slurpees contain is actually corn gluten from the high fructose corn syrup. Note that those same products say there's no detectable level of wheat, and the odds are very strong that they would not contain barley, rye, or oats.

This is chachas website: http://www.chacha.com/

I think it is just people who have signed up to be answerers on the website. Most of the information I get from them is quoted from sources, and the slurpee one I got was I believe because they also gave me ingredients for the coca cola flavored one and watermelon

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
