Topics I've Started

A new Cheddar's is opening up in my area.  I do remember some comments, mostly negative, about Cheddar's, but was wondering if it's a remote possibility for celiac hubby.

Santa Fe Cattleman's?

Any gluten free options here?

Report On United Flights And Trip To Germany

26 September 2013 - 06:34 AM

Trip to Germany was great!  We stayed with daughter, son-in-law, and new grand-daughter, so eating out was not an issue.  The commissary on base had a lot of gluten-free grocery options, and the German drug store we went to had tons of Dr. Shar products.  There were some I had never seen before, especially in the variety of breads, cookies, and assorted sweets.  We even found some gluten-free beer in a shopping mall in Bayeruth (sp?)


We flew non-stop from Chicago O'Hare to Munich and back on United.  The gluten-free dinner on the flight out was very good according to hubby, but it went downhill from there.  The "breakfast" was a rice cake and applesauce.  The lunch and snack on the flight back were barely tolerable.  They seem to think rice is the only carbohydrate acceptable for gluten-free diets.


I wish I had more information on eating out in Germany, but with a 2-week old baby, getting out much was not an option.  We did make it to a street festival in Nuremburgh, and enjoyed brats and wine.  Among all the food and souvenier tents, there was a gluten-free tent with about the best cookies hubby ever had!


Since they will be there 3 years, we plan on going back in about a year or so.  Hopefully, we will be able to get out more.


So, I'd recommend bringing your own food on United Airlines - they tried, but came up a little short.
