Hi,

I went to Friendly's the other day and got Ice Cream. I explained my allergy and they showed me the ingredients on a ice cream box and did not see wheat. So does anyone know if it is Gluten Free because I am breaking out with DH like crazy?

I think you'd have to tell us what flavor.

It should have been gluten-free.

Maybe the ice cream was contaminated from doubling dipping spoons from gluten to gluten free ice cream. Did you eat anything else there?

I have eaten at Friendly's a few times since being diagnosed. I have also had the vanilla and the black raspberry ice cream 2 times. I really love the black ras and it did NOT give me any problems. Keep in mind I do not have DH though... Sure you were not contaminated somewhere else? Could be cross contamination as was just mentioned as well.
Sorry to hear that!

Yes. The next night I went to Applebees and got a stake. I specifically told waitress about my disease and she was good enough to catch one of the cheffs putting bread on the plate. I'm wondering if there is wheat in the seasoning. They told me they would make it right but my gut says something is amiss.

About the ice cream, the other thought I had was that pieces of the cone might have gotten in the ice cream bucket.

I have been wondering how long it would take for DH to appear after an accidental glutenting. It is always accidental so it is hard to say. Until now for me. At a party in April the host told me a dessert salad was made with rice. I was very exicted and ate a tablespoon or two. I went back for seconds it was so good. Then I noticed, That wasnt rice it was PASTA! Wheat pasta! OMG. Fear, panic, set in. I vomited. Thought everything was cool. No DH outbreak. Four weeks later, what happens? You guessed it, DH breakout. I really do not believe I was accidentally glutened immediately before the break out. So I have come to the conclusion the protien floats around in the blood for quite some time before the DH appears.
Anyone else have a guess?

I think everyone's bodies are different with how long it takes to get a reaction.

On a side note, I remember eating at an Applebees 5 yrs ago for my bday. My parents took me out and I had a tough time finding something to eat there. Apparently they get meat that is already pre-flavored containing gluten. Now, this was yrs ago and in Rhode Island, I don't know if it is still true. I was able to have a steak that was unseasoned and they just got it in before it was contaminated.

That restaurant is bad. They never have anything that we can eat and they're not very accomodating. I'm in Houston. Be careful of steaks that have been marinated as they may contain gluten.

Now I am probably sidetracking a little but since you mentioned Applebys. I must have just had a wonderful waiter. I live in Columbus, Ohio, and on a recent visit to a suberbian Appleby's (which I just usually avoid because I don't really like chain resturants like that) I explained to the waiter about my allergies. He went and got the manager and the two of them went to the back and researched all of the ingredients in their marinade for chicken. The manager came out and told me they could grill a plain chicken breast for me in a clean pan! and they went to the grocery store and bought safe salad dressing for me! They were absolutley the best. I know that it was the people not the resturant but those guys were wonderful.
