gluten-free Hershey Experiences
0

6 posts in this topic

My family and I are planning a trip to Hershey this August. I have been doing a lot of research on their gluten free option(I am very careful and haven't really eaten out at any kind of resturaunt since being diagnoised last September)I am really nervous about trusting other people when it comes to handling my food. I was hoping to get some feedback on other's gluten-free experiences in Hershey.

Going to Hershey in August and am staying at the Hershey Lodge. I have had great experiences at the Lodge, but this is my first time going as a gluten free guest. I have read that the staff all over Hershey is well educated on gluten free as well as other allergies, however the gluten free menu for the resturaunts say that the kitchens are not a gluten free enviromnet. Im not really comfortable with trusting that my food will be completly gluten free.

Has anyone had there food....? Any reactions?? Any advice???

Hershey is a fantastic place to visit if you're gluten free. Piazza Sorrento is one of my favorite restaurants, however all of the restaurants at the Lodge and the Hotel offer Gluten Free options and they are all trained extremely well on allergens. If you're going to the amusement park, they're also trained and knowledgeable. I have eaten at almost all of the restaurants that offer gluten free menus and am very cautious and have never felt sick. I also know most of the chefs there too, if you have a particular restaurant or question that you're curious about please message me directly or post it on here and I'll try to help you have the best experience that you can!

Thank you so much!

- I will definately let you know if I have any other concerns over Hershey. Its good to know that you have know some chefs in Hershey. Getting questions answered by those actually preparing the food (or atleast someone who kknows the chefs preparing the food) makes me feel so much better! :)

Hershey Park is very good with gluten-free. I had the best gluten-free pizza EVER at Hershey Park - I don't remember the name, but it's near the big flume ride. And it's a really nice park.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
