In Topic: Another Cross Contamination Question

28 November 2006 - 02:17 PM

"The main concern is touching the bagel and then licking your fingers, or touching your face or touching your safe food. My husband eats gluten and I am very careful about wiping down the counters and not getting myself sick. I don't ever gluten myself at home, but I am very careful. I watched him make a sandwich the other day. He left crumbs on the counter and then without washing his hands touched the fridge, trash cabinet, and dish towel. I went behind him and wiped all those things down and tossed the towel in the wash."

This is so true! I did the same exact thing with my boyfriend yesterday. Watched him make a sandwich and then touch everything in the kitchen. I ran around the kitchen and wiped everything down after him. He looked at me like I had ten heads. I wish we could have one of those black lights that you see in the crime shows on TV that detects blood, but one for detecting gluten! Then I could turn out the kitchen lights, turn on the gluten-detector-black-light, and show him how the gluten crumbs got everywhere...contaminating everything! :)

I can't help you with the snack size candy question, but I do know that tootsie rolls are gluten-free. I eat a couple everyday! :)

In Topic: French Fries In Boston Area?

14 November 2006 - 07:37 AM

Hi -- has anyone had any luck finding a restaurant that makes french fries in a dedicated fryer (used only for non-breaded products) in the Greater Boston area? Unfortunately, the fries at places like Legal's, Outback and Bugaboo Creek are not on the gluten-free menu. (I understand about the MacDonald's controversy, so I'm looking for other suggestions.) Thanks!

Chik-filet has gluten-free french fries. They are a fast food restaurant though, found in some malls. I have gone to the one in the Burlington Mall.

I've heard that Fire and Ice in Harvard Square is an option. You choose your own veggies, meat, sauce and it all gets cooked. Apparently, there is a special area in the back where they can cook the food for those with various food allergy concerns. I haven't been there myself, so I can't speak from personal experience, but I had noted it down for a possible visit in the future.

I have eaten at the Fire and Ice in both Harvard Square and Providence Place Mall.
I had success at both places. YOu just have to ask the guys/gals behind the grill to bring your food in back to cook up in a separate pan (once it is done they will bring it out front to you). Before going I emailed the corporate office and received a kind reply to do this and to ask your server which sauces are gluten-free. You can call the harvard location and talk to the manager just to feel better about it (I know I do even if people tell me a place is safe to eat!). Also there is The Elephant Walk in Cambridge and Boston that has a gluten-free menu (you can view it online), but they are pretty expensive...

Sorry for all the questions, but do you know if the Hershey mini bags of Kissables and Reeses Peices are gluten-free? I just bought two big bags of those (at 75% off!)..
