Ha! Ha! A coworker called me down to her office just now saying she'd picked up the wrong kind of chips for her lunch. The bag said they're wheat and gluten free. I read her the ingredients list -- sweet potatoes, peanut oil, sunflower oil, and salt -- and said these are the same ingredients as she'd find in Utz, Lays, Dirty Chips, etc. It's a marketing thing. Well, she said, they don't sound like they have the tasty fattening stuff in them. They sound plain and nasty. I laughed as she asked me to take them away. :lol: (And then I washed the bag about five times, because she'd had her sandwichy hand on it.)

5/30- Just a little over 4 months of being gluten free. While the joint pain and nausea are gone, I'm very sluggish and tired again. I also for the first time in my life have to get up to pee in the middle of the night. Quite annoying. But I'm still very grateful most of my issues are gone!

Not pringles, and some BBQ flavors (Lays, for example) are not safe.

Hahaha, that's great. My MIL brought home 2 small and expensive bags of chips for me because they say gluten free on the front. I didn't have the heart to tell her that my favorite chips are gluten free, and so are most of the ones I would eat normally. (Not that I eat a lot of chips, a bag could sit on a shelf for months before I feel like I want some.)
