Thank you all so much for the help and replies - I am so relieved that I didn't know I had Celiac before the internet came around! I did find the crackers and bought them - my daughter was so excited and she tried them and really did not like them at all. She keeps trying because she wants to like them but she doesn't eat more than one without an explanation "it's too.....[any nonsensical word]". My son (age 6, also Celiac) refused to try them. My husband thought they were ok. I didn't try them - I wasn't interested in another snack food I guess. For what it is worth, a friend of mine who has no dietary restrictions loves them and prefers them to traditional goldfish - go figure. I am fairly satisfied by the email Adalaide posted - thank you for that and for the information on the phone call - that was so nice of you to take the time to help out!  My daughter has had a lousy digestive week but I am in no way prepared to blame the crackers and would try them again if she asked me to buy them.

Think of it this way, 30 percent of the US population or so have the genes, yet they do not develop it. Of that percentage only something like 1 or 2 percent actually do.

 

The child may never develop it. Of course, its something to keep an eye on due to family members having it.

Thanks for the thought! I do think that is important - the only thing that gives me pause is that 100% of the people in my immediate family with the gene did develop the disease. The population statistic doesn't seem to apply to us. In my (pretty large) extended family, nearly all the people have elected to not get tested and to suffer various health symptoms that I think might indicate that some of them have it. Of the three people that did decide to test, all of them tested positive for celiac. Not sure if that is relevant.

In Topic: Las Vegas/lazy Joe's Fish And Chips?

15 March 2013 - 07:33 AM

Ok, I am back and if anyone else is planning a trip to Vegas soon I wanted to let you know about my two experiences! Lazy Joe's isn't on the strip - it is about 15 min drive - but it was fantastic! Not healthy - it is fried food - but we never eat junk and it was really fun to order it - onion ring, fries, mozzeralla sticks, fried mushrooms, zuchinni fries, so much seafood, etc. The owner was absolutely awesome - so friendly and aware. A really great experience. He said a woman had a taken a cab from the strip just to eat there gluten-free and he felt bad, so he drove her back to her hotel! We also went to Rainforest Cafe for the kids and the food was safe the chef was nice - our wait for the food was so very long (1 1/2 hours) but we did eat safely. I drove up to the gluten-free bakery but they were closed for the day unexpectedly - a last minute thing.  Hopefully this helps anyone else!
