I wasn't sure which forum to put this post in since it's not about recipes or about restaurants. Sorry if this is the wrong place.

My husband has been wanting to go to the cinema since Friday, and I've been putting it off, basically because I had no idea what snack to take with me while I'm on the elimination diet. To me part of going to see a film is having munchies. I basically eat veggies (no corn, and carrots or peppers since they make my throat sore) and meat.

I was thinking.. would it be a bad idea to have a coca cola zero? :-(
Anyone else have a bad experience from cola or any type of diet soda?

Any ideas on interesting snacks I can take? :-)

:) yay movies! My newest favorite gluten-free munchy: Bangkock Sweet Chile Rice Chips by Snapdragon. Our kids love Pirates Booty (but I think it has corn, so double check the ingredients list). For a more healthy choice I love jicama slices. Jicama can be sweet and crunchy and has lots of water in it! Jicama, like carrot, is a root, so I'm not sure your throat will like it.
Instead of cola/soda could you find a more "natural" soda like a ginger ale?

Have fun at the movies!

Thanks, sounds yummy! I hope it won't cause any problems :-)

I haven't had any issues from Coke or any other colas, although to my knowledge so far I don't have any additional food allergies or interferences. I do love Izze sodas though, they're pretty much carbonated water and juice with no additional sweetener.

If you can't do corn, soda is a bad idea due to high fructose corn syrup and regular corn syrup.

Neither of those should be an issue since she mentioned getting Coke Zero. I haven't looked up the ingredients but I am assuming that zero calories = zero corn syrup. There also isn't any corn syrup in the Izze soda, it doesn't have any sweeteners.

No I don't think diet sodas contain corn syrup.. I can't do any sugar or corn.
I also live in sweden, we don't have Izze soda but perhaps there is something close to it :-) Thanks!

Whenever I do have a soda, depending where you are you can find Sierra Mist Natural or Pepsi throwback cola. They are made with real sugar. I also like Crunchmaster 7th Ancient grain lightly salted cracker. It has no corn, no nuts or soy! I'm not sure if you're eating any graines, but this has been the best for me.

ah, I missed the "zero" part up there. I myself don't do fake sugars because I cannot stand the taste (splenda and saccharin are the worst, but aspertame sucks too). I wouldn't think such a chemical concoction would be good for an elimination diet, but hey if you don't get symptoms, good on you.

you didn't mention if you're off ALL sugar, such as the sugar in, say, strawberries, or just cane sugar/added sugar. I often substitute blueberries when I get a skittles craving. a handful of nuts or berries or something like that could do for a substitute for movie theatre candy anyway.

I'm off all sugar. Really good suggestion on the berries though, thanks :-) I was thinking of adding rice next but I think it's better to start with fruit... Which makes me wonder, when I add berries, means I can have all berries? or all fruits?

I know the OP isn't drinking soda, but I want to point out that the ingredients in Coke, Pepsi etc. in the US are completely different from the ingredients in Coke, Pepsi, etc. in Sweden. Coke in your country isn't the same as Coke in someone else's country. Just important to keep in mind when giving people advice about specific products. :)
