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.

    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
    • Wow I'm gonna be a skinny Minnie in no time rather than a bloated and confused Thankyou I'll try look at these images 4 days gluten free
    • Hi Natalie, The dairy should be eliminated completely for a few weeks at least.  It can be hard to tell what food is causing symptoms at first.  Dairy is a known problem for many people, even those who don't have celiac disease.  Carbs are bad if you are having digestive upset and bloating.  The carbs feed the bacteria that make gas in your gut and that can cause symptoms.  Everybody is an individual though so you may not have bad symptoms.  But when you are trying to heal fast and aren't sure what's causing the problems, eliminating some common problem foods makes sense.  There is no reason to reduce the dairy and carbs slowly though.  They can be cut out completely right away.  You should be able to tell if it's helping within a week or so.  Eliminating them is no problem as long as you don't blow away!    
    • I think it won't hurt a bit to eliminate dairy for a while. As far as carbs, that's kind of an individual thing. Some do better without them or with limiting them and some, like myself, have to have carbs. I am skinny, have a high metabolism & would dry up & blow away without my carbs & I eat lots of carbs. They don't bother me. Keeping a food & symptom log can be a great help especially in the beginning.
