Snyder's Of Hanover Gluten Free Pretzels

06 January 2014 - 08:13 AM

I am so excited about Snyder's of Hanover Gluten Free Honey Mustard and Onion Pretzel sticks!!! I bought some the other day and absolutely love them! They are Dairy Free, Casein Free, Egg and Gluten Free! It was somewhere around $3 for an 8oz bag. I have had no reaction whatsoever. If you see these I definitely recommend them! :)


My Worst Glutening

31 August 2013 - 07:04 AM

Hello everyone! You haven't seen me on here in a while, I hope everyone is doing well. Recovery was going great for me, all my symptoms had completely disappeared for a month! I was doing great! Then I got careless, stupid me. Wednesday before last my best friend and I got together for dinner, it was the third anniversary of the passing of our closet friend. We went to the only restaurant close to me that I would eat at. Marco, has the best salads! I got the same salad I had in the past and garlic fries which I have had also. Since I never go out I had forgot that they serve bread with the salad and they brought it out with two slices of french bread sitting on top of my salad. I should have politely sent it back and asked for a new salad.... did I do that?... NO! My friend ate my bread and I ate my salad which had been contaminated! I felt like poo shortly after and worse the next day, but it was mild compared to the reactions I have had in the past, I was managing it. That Friday (not this past Friday but the one before) My little brother (who I never see) came to visit me on his only day off. I felt special, we hung out for a couple hours (in spite of me still feeling like poo from the CC two nights before). He was hungry and wanted to take me out, we had the convo about my diet, he suggested Quixote (new restaurant in our town) that was supposed to be all gluten free. I agreed to go but explained that I probably wouldn't eat anything. I talked to the owner of this place and he said with confidence that everything but three menu items were gluten-free. I ordered guacamole and chips ( I didn't want to take chances and in my mind that was still a chance) he brought me out carrot soup that I didn't order and said it was on the house... I probed with questions about what was in it, what kind of stock they use, what kind of thickener? He assured me it was safe.... I have felt like my insides are on fire ever since! My back, ribs, stomach, abdomen, hips, legs all are giving me so much pain! This is the sixth day and I still hurt. I'm bloated, nauseous, constipated. The pain is so much worse than I have had from gluten in the past, hands down! I wanted to go to the ER yesterday, I started thinking this can't be from gluten, my organs are rupturing or something horrible of that nature!!! I swear I WILL NEVER EAT OUT AGAIN!!! I doesn't matter how many Q's you ask, no one understands how much CC matters unless you are Celiac or GS. My dad is still under the impression that "a little won't hurt ya!" I wish I knew when this would pass! Before it was a week for me, but it's never been this bad (except when I first found out)and it's over a week already! Pray for me guys....

Gluten Free Picnic

What dish would you take to a gluten-free picnic or BBQ?

La Choy Stur Fry Sauces

12 June 2013 - 03:01 PM

I've been looking for good gluten-free sauces to replace the ones I used to use for my Chinese dishes. It's been a task the ones labeled gluten-free I haven't liked, even the gluten-free soy sauce tastes weird to me. I spent time reading labels which can be deceiving and found two that had no claim to use of Wheat like ALL of the others. I got Original and Orange Ginger. I still couldn't bring myself to use them until I knew for sure so I call the Questions or Comments number on the lable and asked the representitive if these sauces were Celiac safe she looked them both up and said that they both were and that it has been a huge process for them but that all labels from La Choy will have wheat listed in the allergy statement if it is used in anyway in the production of their products. So crossing my fingers that these sauces are awesome and in no way make me sick....

Laura Lynn Corn Meal?

10 June 2013 - 10:55 AM

Does anyone know if Laura Lynn self-raising corn meal is gluten-free?
When I bought it I read several labels. It is not a mix it's just cornmeal. Others all had Allergy statements about wheat. This one has no statement. Ingredients include:
Enriched White Corn Meal (Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid) Salt, Leavening (Monocalcium Phosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate).

I really want to eat cornbread tonight, but haven't been able to find an answer....
