Heading To The Us

Hey guys so over Christmas I'll be heading down to Bellingham, let's hear you Americans' favourite products! I was thinking on stocking up on:

Chex

A Betty Crocker mix or two

Some type of protein bar? I used to get ThinkThin from Trader Joe's but couldn't find them last time I went down..

Any suggestions would be great. I'd also like to try maybe a restaurant down there (so sad the PF Chang's isn't until Seattle.. :( ). Anybody know if there is an in-n-out or a five-guys (I think that's the name..) where I could try fries?

Also, we have Udi's in Canada now (exciting, eh) so I don't need to look for that!

Thanks guys :D

I'm mostly eating veggies, a meat, and rice, so I don't know much about processed gluten-free foods, but I do know that Crunchmaster makes a most excellent little cracker in a couple different flavors. Olive oil and rosemary is fantastic. They're great to put toppings on. I highly recommend them. Personally, I much prefer Pam's to the Bob's brand for my pancake mix. I haven't really found a good gluten-free cookie. There's a little lemon wafer that's ok. Can't remember who makes them, but they're pricey. And I have not found a good gluten-free bread. I've tried a couple of different brands, including Udi's. They're just such a poor substitute IMO. Amy's makes good frozen foods, but you gotta figure out which dishes are good, b/c there are some real duds.

PF Chang's mini chocolate mousse rocks. It's my favorite dessert.

Not sure what you get up there north of the border, but I always stock on on Larabars, and Enjoy Life soy free choc chips, and all the different flours (got coconut flour last time, teff the year before) cheap xanthan gum, (was going to try to bring back dried egg whites this year until the salmonella outbreak scotched that thought of going through Ag inspection :o - I have enough problems with what I bring back anyway :lol: ), just basically all the products I can't get down here that are legal to bring in (and don't weigh a ton on the plane).

Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce, if you like it. The version sold in the US is gluten-free, and is even labeled as such. The one made under licence in Canada has "malt vinegar (from barley)" as the first ingredient.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
