I found Kind bars and LOVE them. I even got someone I know eating them also. Well I was eating like 2 a day and started noticing that I didn't quite feel right. I think I had been glutened by other stuff at the time also. So I started eating somethings that were ok. Well I started feeling great :) Then I made the mistake of eating a Kind bar and a Larabar a few days ago and I've been feeling bad again. I'm pretty sure it's the Kind bars which sucks cos they made my life a little easier. I'm not eating either one of these bars again. Has anyone else had a reaction to them? Has anyone found a good fruit and nut bar that didn't cos a reaction? How can I get my reaction to go away? I've been chugging water. When I get glutened I get brain symptoms. I feel like my mind is in rush hour traffic :( I slept quite a bit today and I have a faint sleep hangover feeling. I find myself just staring and getting upset or angry easily. Luckily after going gluten free I'm able to keep those emotions inside a little easier or at least I think so lol Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I believe they process gluten-free oats in the facility with the Kind Bars--so if you are oat sensitive, you could be reacting to that. Lara Bars are not processed in a facility with oats.

When Starbucks began carrying the Kind Bars, I called the company and was given the oat info. They look so good, too :( :)

They are good. No wonder last year when I was having issues I felt bad after. I thought I was reacting to the sesame seeds. I just started eating them again in the last few months. I'm such an idiot. :P Just goes to prove that you can't assume anything and not let your guard down for one minute. Even after three years I still have things to learn! I think I will still let the oldest boy eat them, but not me or the youngest.

They are like crack in a package lol They are so good. I keep looking for just like 1 or 2 easy junk food replacements and I keep getting sick from them. It's so frustrating. :( Sometimes I come home and just want something like a Kind bar or some chips to snack on. I love riceworks chips but I don't know if I can eat them. I would eat a lot of them when I'd get them and not feel right. I don't know if I'm reacting to something in them or if it's because I would eat so many at a time. You know like how some people can eat a little of something and be ok. I can't eat just a few of them lol Any suggestions on some snacks? :unsure:

Any help on how to get this reaction to pass? :(

Being pretty sensitive, I rely on Lays Stax chips (made on dedicated lines) and homemade popcorn for salty/crunchy. I use either Orville Redinbacher or America's Best (which I prefer the taste of). I pop the kernels in light olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.

For your reaction, drink lots of pure water, keep something bland in your stomach, and maybe sip some peppermint tea. Hope it passes soon.

Thanks for your replies. I've been drinking lots of water. I feel like a zombie so I'd rather have brains!!! lol Sorry I had to. The gluten made me do it lol :lol: I'll have to try the Stax cos I see a lot of people on here mention them.
