Skittles
Starburst
Jolly ranchers

are gluten-free/DF/SF too. If you have a sweet tooth!

True, that, my friend! We Celiacs are in this together and I would like to help by paying for the postage. Totally serious. You have my email. ;)


Okay, let's see, my infrequent (but fun) snacky foods for gluten-free/DF/SF living are:

Larabars
Enjoy Life Chocolate chips and BoomChocoBoom Bars
Nuts of all kinds
Craisins
Indiana kettlecorn
Mott's all natural Applesauce cups
Cape Cod Potato Chips
ANYTHING by So Delicious (coconut milk) but those products will not travel well across the Atlantic :( :lol:
The King Arthur mixes
Namaste Mixes
CHEBE mixes
GLUTENFREEDA hot cereal, oatmeal packets
Rice cakes with Smucker's natural PB and St. Dalfour Jam (although those rice cakes might not travel well either :unsure: )

I have not ordered from these people yet, but my hairdresser recommends:

http://www.indiecand...-Candy-s/55.htm

for candies and goodies. Maybe WF carries them?

We do not have a WF near us (bummer) so I am not sure.


Oh, my! We have a snack expert here! :P I am writing this all down for myself, although I have had and love the Namaste mixes and Chebe bread. I did not know they were soy free also.

That's awesome of you to offer postage and we'll have to wait and see if Strawberry takes us up on it. How could anyone resist that list? You could gain weight just reading it. ;)

Gemini - I defer to your experience on feeding up a very poorly underweight person.

Sainsbury's are really good on labelling allergens, and their free from range goes the extra mile, with the main allergens being avoided prominently displayed on the front of the product (eg, wheat free, gluten free, dairy free).

I attach a link to their website below. In the allergens area there is also a long list of products which are free from X allergen. There is a soya exclusion list, although it would also need to be cross-referred to the gluten free list, and any other allergens Strawberry needed.

Sainsbury's also do on-line shopping, so Strawberry could choose a bunch of stuff her boyfriend could buy for her, if he is able to get there, as I guess they won't deliver over the border to the Republic.

The free from range includes not just a large range of goodies, but also a decent selection of ready meals and cooking sauces or soups which can make up a quick meal. I would expect the majority of them to be soy free as well as gluten free, but they would need to go to the largest possible store, rather than a smaller city site.

I have had the Sainsbury's digestive biscuits before and they are really good! I did miss those when diagnosed but now there are companies that make them gluten-free. There is another line of cookies called True Free, I think, and those are excellent also. I got them in the UK, though, not Ireland.

Thank you for this information. I do vacation in the UK as much as I can afford to and this will come in handy for me also!

Look for rolled rice ["pohu"] at your local indian supermarket. It comes in thick, medium and thin style. It makes very nice porridge.

here in ireland, nutella has milk in it, and starburst has soya lecithin! argh! but I do buy and eat skittles here sometimes >_>



omg so you guys are just gonna get me stuff? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

all I can think of right now is that I love terra original exotic vegetable chips! you can pop the air out of the bags and roll them up to take up less room, then tape them again (my mama did that once when she mailed me some stuff) and the 123-gluten-free spice cake mix is really good, iirc. aaaaaaaaah isn't it expensive to mail stuff though?! tell you what, if you're getting me a present it's totally up to you how much you want to get, and as long as it's clearly gluten-free, dairy-free, and soya-free... I'm not a huge chocolate person either come to think of it. I do love anything with cinnamon. I don't know... *choice-coma*

Is there just "normal people" food from the groceries that you can't get there? Jello? Koolaid? plain popcorn? etc. sounds like skittles or Starburst or Jolly ranchers.

Yes! We must send Strawberry a care package! I would be happy to help.

I like home made guacamole for snack. Or peanuts. Or you can make peanut brittle in a microwave pretty easy.


Does Sainsbury have gift cards? That might be simpler than mailing things over the pond.
