It says only milk in the allergy info (I was just looking at the menu last night for myself but for D and E in other stuff).

Not sure of any x-con issues.

It just sounds so icky to me, but I know people like those flavors together. If you get it, you'll have to come post how it tasted.

Man, I love the combination of the saltiness with ice cream or almost anything. Bacon jam is amazing as is sliced bacon brushed with maple syrup then roasted in the oven. Bacon and chocolate also have an affinity for one another. I encourage you to try it - hopefully you will be pleasantly surprised! :P

In the absence of bacon, scooping up your ice cream with salted pretzels is also lovely.

Make some bacon and scoop up your ice cream with it.

Make bacon crumbles and sprinkle it on your own ice cream.

As for me....I'm doing what Love2travel just inspired me to do...

I'm dipping crispy bacon in melted Dove chocolate...and letting it set.

I also dip potato chips...in ice cream or chocolate yum!

I wouldn't eat the sundae from McDonald's but I would make my own version of it.

Awesome! Isn't it wonderful? Seriously good with potato chips and pretzels. The good thing about making your own sundae (or anything else for that matter) is that you control the ingredients and can make it exactly how you like it. :)

My son would sooooo go for this. He has an "I heart bacon" T-shirt that he wears constantly and gets lots of compliments on. We gave him bandaids for his birthday that looked like strips of bacon.

Someone gave me a cupcake once that had maple icing and bacon crumbles on top. I gave it to my son who told me it was like eating a pancake/bacon desert. I was tempted to try and make a gluten-free version of it, but quite frankly I don't need that in the house.

I myself, totally love alternating bites of chips and ice cream.

Nothing about a bacon sundae from Burger King sounds appealing........and I'm pregnant, so if anyone should want to try that, it should be me! :blink:

Several years ago I had steak cooked on the grill. We were having home-made hot fudge sundaes for dessert. There was a bit of steak left on my plate and I dipped it into the hot fudge. It was GGGGOOOOOODDDD!!!!

I wish I could eat bacon (corn, dontchaknow) because I would be all over this.

I'm with you bart. I found out Friday that my life is now baconless (and hamless and chocolateless) and considering all the new things I've had to give up I was honestly debating if saving my sight was worth giving up bacon. In retrospect that seems crazy but at the time going blind for bacon and chocolate seemed like a perfectly good idea.

At any rate, I kept meaning to get to BK for some sweet potato fries and a bacon sundae. I suppose I'll just go to Wendy's and have a berry salad instead if I still feel like I need to indulge. My husband and I have been periodically enjoying candied bacon and bacon milkshakes this summer, I'm more than a little sad to be giving them up.

I think most people would agree that bacon is one of the greatest inventions of all time.

But an even greater "invention" is good health that will allow us to enjoy all of the other "great inventions" - like sunsets and music and family and friends. Hiking in the woods, fishing, sports, theater, beaches, concerts, trips to far-off places, and trips close to home.

At least that is what I tell myself whenever I see someone eating bacon.

You're so right bart! If everyone ate bacon I think we could have world peace. I mean, why fight when we could eat bacon.

    • Hi Sarah, I agree with cyclinglady, your doctor doesn't seem to understand celiac disease.   Maybe you can check on Google for a local celiac support group.  Ask them if they know of any good celiac doctors in your area. The usual testing process for celiac is 12 weeks of eating gluten and then a blood test followed by an endoscopy later.  You are right, if you weren't eating gluten before the test it was not reliable. Welcome to the forum!  
    • Hi lolobaggins, Yes, it is not unusual to have symptoms that come and go after going gluten-free.  Edema (swelling) can also be a symptom of an allergic reaction.  Fatigue is not fun but remember your body is trying to heal a major organ, your gut.  So some rest might be a good idea.  The immune system response is going to keep going for several weeks to several months.  Each little bit of gluten kicks the immune response off again and extends the healing time.  So it's helpful to be very careful with your diet. Meats, vegetable, and nuts are good foods to eat at the beginning.  And whole foods rather than processed foods.  Dairy is often a problem until the villi are healed.  After a few weeks if things are going well you can try to add one new food a week and see how things go.  But take it slow and easy.  The fewer foods/ingredients we are eating the easier it is to identify problem foods. Welcome to the forum!
    • Welcome to the club that you never wanted to join!  (I plagiarized that from someone else here but can't recall who so I can't give credit to them.) Anyway, there is a steep learning curve to being gluten free.  It takes time to learn to read labels.  It takes time to heal (like months to YEARS).  Symptoms can wax or wane.  You just have to keep moving forward.  Give yourself time to heal and do not worry about the gym right now.  It will come back later, I promise (from a gal who cycles, swims, and runs).   Read our Newbie 101 section pinned at the top of the "Coping" section.  It contains valuable tips about cross contamination and hidden sources of gluten.  Read, read, read, the internet from reliable sources (not crazy bloggers).   You will feel better soon.  
    • Ha!    That happens to me all the time!!!!!  It drives me crazy!
    • "Accidentally marked them soy free".  Are you kidding?  That's fraud!  Consumer Reports just issued a huge report this month on supplements.   Yes, everyone thinks they are all "natural" and therefore safe.  Doctors and nurses recommend them all the time, but they can do a lot of damage.  Anyone can start making them in their bathroom and there's literally no regulation.   Geez, it is safer to buy food products (no gluten ingredients listed) from companies like Kraft and ConAgra because they are regulated more!  http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine/2016/09/index.htm What about the probiotics?  Columbia University tested about 20 of them and found that over half had gluten in them.....enough to make celiacs  remain sick. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/05/150515083232.htm Think twice about taking supplements.  Make sure you really medically need supplements.  I prefer certified gluten-free if I need to take them and I take nothing right now because all my labs are okay!  You have been on the gluten-free bandwagon for many years (member here for years).  Your doctors should be looking at other things that might be making you sick still.  Something is wrong!   That's my two cents!
