That's pretty upsetting that your husband would have a problem with you writing on a forum to try and better your health. I wish you the best.

#796265 Gluten-Free Food Taken Away At Sea World

Posted by on 17 May 2012 - 04:51 AM

I definitely don't think you should embellish, nor ask for something free in return....quite frankly, you're less likely to get something for free if you ask for it, especially if you aren't telling the whole truth. Please do not listen to the advice of the person who told you to do this. Next time, definitely reach out to management prior to your visit to find out what the appropriate procedure is for bringing in outside food (even if you already know, if you make the effort to reach out and talk to someone, it's greatly appreciated) and always maintain a calm, polite attitude. I'm sorry that this happened, I know it's frustrating but these places have rules in place for a reason, whether we agree with them or not.

#794587 Hershey Park

Posted by on 10 May 2012 - 07:02 AM

Typically they're not ever rude or unhelpful, I'm sorry you had such a bad experience. The Park just opened for the summer, so they're training some new folks and maybe they're overwhelmed...which is no excuse however. I love the chicken tenders and the gluten free pizza, Minetown Restaurant is one of the better places to sit and eat and relax. Boardwalk fries are gluten free as are a lot of the ice cream places. Granted it's your choice on the level of your comfort if you choose to eat there or not but when the park is open, I eat there weekly and have never once gotten sick. They are very well trained (yes even for highschool and college students) and I've never been so willing to recommend something before. I don't know if you have other intolerences or anything and I certainly understand if you don't feel comfortable but they really do a decent job at making gluten free people feel like they have options!

#791319 Weird Looking "object" In Gluten-Free Mall Banner

Posted by on 27 April 2012 - 04:58 AM

I have a better approach RiceGuy, why do YOU tell us what it is, after all, you would know better than me, right? I have my pen in hand, my notebook, and you are on the couch...please explain to us all what you see in this picture that we don't?

hahah seriously! I don't understand why everyone's explaination, including the creator of the ad, is still wrong in your mind....or why you even care so much to begin with. Time to let it go!!

#788775 Weird Looking "object" In Gluten-Free Mall Banner

Posted by on 18 April 2012 - 02:41 PM

Thing is, the texture is not at all like that of hair. It appears solid, and has specularity. Also notice the total absence of any light shining through it, which there would be if it was hair, especially given the obvious wind blowing. Not to mention that there is light shining on hair further up on that side, and it looks nothing like the portion in question.

Not having any other mundane explanation doesn't mean it has to be hair.

I guess my "mundane explanation" was correct.

You're silly. It absolutely can be red hair, the sun is shining on the one side of her body and the other is in the shade, based on the color of the skin on her hand it looks tan, not "dark". As a red head, I assure you that our hair color looks different in the sun than it does in the shade!

#732923 Finally, A Soft Corn Tortilla Labelled Gluten-Free

Posted by on 22 September 2011 - 05:31 AM

I forget the brad but I remember very recently seeing a corn tortilla that said contained wheat as well! I stood dumbfounded in the store for a little bit. The package had the brand written in cursive but I cannot for the life of me remember!

#726965 Corona Light Beer

Posted by on 01 September 2011 - 04:11 AM

Barley is not safe for celiacs, as it is a source of gluten. You might not be having an external reaction but I assure you that you're causing damage internally. Corona is NOT gluten free.

#722925 Better Batter Flour

Posted by on 15 August 2011 - 04:44 AM

I'm one of those who love gluten-free Bisquick, everything that I've made with it has been delicious! Different strokes for different folks I reckon!

I haven't tried Better Batter but have heard people rave about it as well, so I'm going to order some!

#715087 What If My Chicken Eats Wheat?

Posted by on 08 July 2011 - 06:34 AM

My thoughts on this are that people are crazy. There is a woman at my fiancee's work who told him that her daughter was a celiac but Jesus healed her and that I should go to church more if I want to be healed.

#709500 Glutened By White Wine - Really?

Posted by on 17 June 2011 - 04:40 AM

I still think that wheat paste thing is a myth, it really doesn't contaminate the wine, I've talked to wine makers at length about that kind of stuff because I live in an area where there are a lot of wineries. I do know that some celiacs have trouble with the sulfites in wine, maybe that could've caused a reaction? Granted I don't know much about that particular brand but the vast majority of the people on this board have no problems with wine from a celiac perspective! I hope you feel better soon!

#698817 Mike's Hard Lemonade

Posted by on 12 May 2011 - 04:25 AM

Malt is not safe. I don't think the distillation process of a malt beverage changes the fact that it is malt. Granted, malt isn't one of the items that triggers a HUGE reaction in me...for the first year of my diagnosis I was still eating Rice Krispies because my then doctor told me they were gluten free (mind you this was 7 years ago) but I honestly think its foolish to risk it when its very clearly stated that celiac disease and a gluten free diet means to avoid wheat, rye, barely and malt.

Just my two or three cents!

#696357 Yellowtail Savignon Blanc Has Gluten?

Posted by on 02 May 2011 - 09:04 AM

I've yet to see valid evidence that would make me not consume wine. Many people don't react well to it, but it doesn't mean its a celiac reaction.

And spock...depending on who you ask and how much you've eaten...two drinks very well could be over-expirimenting :)
