In Topic: Looking For A Pen Pal For Daughter

15 October 2008 - 12:57 PM

Hey I'm sorry you haven't been able to find a penpal yet. I know there are some kids younger than me (I'm 16) on but it may take them a while to see this post. I think your best bet is to try to get in contact with some of the moms around here. I hope this somewhat helps! Just keep on looking! I'll try to look around and help find a penpal for your daughter.

Thanks for your help! I really appreciate it. Another Mom (who has only a son) said she was going to check at her son's school. My kid's are homeschooled, so I'm at a loss there.


In Topic: Breyer's Icecream Gluten-free?

12 October 2008 - 02:28 PM

Here is what the website says:

Is there Gluten in your products?:

Unilever Ice Cream is a member of the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network and the Food Allergy Resource and Research Program.
We recommend consumers read the label each time before buying our product.
If gluten is present, it is clearly listed in plain language on the ingredient label (i.e., wheat flour, rye, barley, oats, and malt).
We do not publish a list of gluten-free flavors.
We work closely with ingredient and packaging suppliers to verify gluten in all ingredient components including natural flavors, colors, and spices.
Some flavorings may contain ethyl alcohol. However, because the alcohol is distilled, they would not pose a threat to anyone who is gluten intolerant.
We apologize for any inconvenience, but itís the best and safest way for you to know.

So if there is gluten in there, it should say on the label.

I have eaten Bryers without any problems.


In Topic: Boy Scout Camping

Thanks Peter,

I appreciate your response. The Scoutmaster was aware. Lane had been on other camp outs (always with his father) and all were aware of his condition. It was just this one mother this time. She knew his condition but told him it wouldn't hurt him to do the clean up.

Very frustrating. :angry:

In Topic: U.s. Holiday!

Hi Martin,

First of all I would like to say that I am jealous of your upcoming trip. Nothing like a good road trip!

That being said, whenever we travel long distances (we drive from Virginia to Illinois frequently) the only certain way we have found to stay gluten free is to stick with the big chain restaurants that have gluten free menu (some listed below that I know of right off) and to buy our own snacks and lunches from grocery stores that carry gluten free items.

P.F. Changs
Cheeseburger in Paradise
Outback Steakhouse
Chick Fil A

Kroger Grocery stores usually carry a section of gluten free items.

I hope that is somewhat helpful.

Have fun!


In Topic: Hello From Sweden

Hi Nina,

I'm glad you found this board.

I agree with you on the baked goods. The gluten free breads, cookies, etc. in the stores are so expensive and not that tasty.

My family is from Stockholm. And my husband wants to move to Malmo. He is even trying to learn a little Swedish. :)

Anyway, welcome!
