Hi, Have any of the Wisconsites tried the Gluten-Free Trading Company? It is in Bay View on Chase and I think Oklahoma?? I just started a gluten-free diet and there were alot of products there that I haven't seen at Good Harvest. It was also helpful to see what natural products are gluten-free since I am so new to this. http://www.gluten-free.net/

My first online purchase for gluten free foods came from them. I ordered about 10 foods that I couldn't find anywhere in my store. It came real quick which I was pleased with. This was about a year and a half ago and since then the stores in my area have expanded with gluten free foods. In fact now I think each store is competing with each other for the best selection ;) So I've have never ordered again. I want to someday get there and shop though maybe go see a brewer game or do the zoo and make a day of it. Have you found a good restaurant in Milwaukee that you recommend?

There is a restaurant called Roots on the East side that I went to before I was gluten-free and I am going to in a few weeks for my anniversary. I will let you know how it goes! There is a place called Tess that I've not been to that I've read is great and has a gluten-free menu. I want to check it out sometime! Here is the website for Roots

Go to P F Changs by Mayfair...it is really good. They have an entire gluten-free menu,you must try the lettuce wrap appetizer. It is their signature item and comes in a gluten-free form. It is excellent and I think next time I am going to get just that and the chocolate dessert that everyone has been raving about. I have never had that as I don't have room after an appetizer and a full dinner. They are very accomodating. I have been to that one and two different ones in the Chicago area.........each was great.

Hi,
I just joined the Milwaukee "Sprue Crew" but haven't been to a meeting yet. I am totally new, too. In the newsletter it had info on a bread company that you could purchase bread from at discount prices and pick-up at the meeting. I just haven't had the time to go to a meeting. Anyone else?

Hey! I'm a member of the "Madison Area Gluten Intolerance Chapter" (MAGIC). I haven't actually gone to any of the meetings, but they send out monthly newsletters which are pretty awesome. They have recipes, product updates, tips, and medical information. I know the Fox Valley Celiacs also have a newsletter (my mom is a member), so I'd think the rest of the groups in the state would have them too. I definitely recommend it though. And maybe I'll find time to actually go to a meeting! ;)

I just found out that the U-Bake store on La Crosse's south side carries Grandma Ferdon's frozen and dry products. I emailed the owner and she sent me a list of all the products with prices. Evidently they hope to carry Kinnekinnick foods in the near future too. Their website is www.ubakelacrosse.com

I'm living in Finland, Northern Europe and travelling to Appleton, WI next week for 5 days :)
Can you help me to find gluten free food, especially (fresh) bread?
Or gluten free tortilla - we don't have those in Finland.

All other tips are welcome too, never been in USA before!

Sonja,

I haven't been there yet but there is Barbara's Pantry 1525 W. Wisconsin Ave. Appleton, WI 54914

She makes Gluten free breads, muffins, quick breads, jelly rolls, cookies, egg noodles, and salads.

I have her pamplet from a meeting I was at and didn't get the chance to go there yet since I'm about an hour away.

I think there's a health food store in the area to that might be worth going to. Good luck and welcome to our area.

I live in Little Chute WI. I just started Gluten Free yesterday! I am glad I found this thread. Especially the previous one. My parents spend most of their summers in Hayward, which is where someone mentioned a Grandma Ferdons. I will be looking for places to shop this weekend. right now I am surviving on popcorn, applesauce, eggs, cheese and chicken and tonight a baked potatoe. Payday is friday and off shopping. I am right outside of Appleton and very close to Green Bay.

Hello,

I hope I am doing this right - I just joined a few minutes ago (though I've been reading the forums for about a year now! I was diagnosed in October 2006)

I am from Racine - anyone else from Racine? I've read here about the Gluten-Free Trading Company in Milwaukee, and have been there a few times - it's fun to go into a place that is entirely gluten-free!

I also shop at Molbeck's (they will be moving their store on Feb. 1-2 into the West Racine area) and at the new U-Bake across from Regency mall.

I've joined the Milwaukee SprueCrew just recently but have not yet been to a meeting (I understand they have them quarterly in Kenosha as well as Milwaukee - anyone here from Kenosha?)

If this has been posted incorrectly or in the wrong place, I apologize!
