Thanks Everyone!

I just want to note: a "feeling of attacked" is different then saying you "were attacked". You cannot dispute someone's feelings. That is the problem with email, blogs, forums where tone is implied through the eyes of the reader. It was not the fact that someone asked for where i read something. It was the fact that it was followed by something i took as implying i was stating something that was implied to be factual. I have no problem to kindly clarify that I did not have a source of where i had read that ... or even to explain that it was quite some time ago... prior to joining this site. That is where my feeling of being attacked stemmed from. And I replied with factual data that I found... weirdly, not relating to my question at all. The reply to that was then followed by with "perhaps you should read up.". I do find it sad that we have spent so much time disputing something about french fries when my question was solely about milkshakes. I do find skylarks reply on why the Mc D's website has the data it has and how it relates to the level of gluten and how it affects the average person with a gluten allergy. That was very valuable and great information to know. I, however, like was referenced am unfortunately super sensitive to gluten, so for me... french fries from Mc D's is a no-no.

I do appreciate all the links and data that people did find for me. That is what make this site unique with the ability to pool everyone's research and then make it available for others to read when doing research as well. I always find this site to be a source and wealth of knowledge and opinions of which I value.

Yes, you probably will always find someone feeling defensive to replies in this specific forum as your working with people finding information about products they once loved or stating something they believe is true. I am one that loves it when people do show the links where they found their data. It's never easy to hear negative things about items you once loved. Sort of the "it can't be true" syndrome.

skylark - that is the whole reason why i decided to ask on this website. Because there ARE crazy things out there.

And yes, i've always found this site supportive. I just feel like this is the first time that i've had replies from people where I felt like i was being attacked. No one likes to feel like that. Your reply was a much better way of wording what I believe Lisa was trying to say.

my question is about Shamrock Shakes, not french fries. I get sick when I eat them -- that is enough for me. I was just replying to your message indicating that their french fries are gluten free and implying that i posted something that was not accurate by saying i read it somewhere. I was simply asking for support and information... regarding the shamrock shakes. Perhaps you should read up as well. ;-)

My purpose of my topic is to get information on if anyone has had a reaction to having shamrock shakes.
