Does anyone know if there are any brands/varieties of ice cream other than Bulla available from supermarkets that are gluten free?

Stacks of them declare the presence of wheat where the only form of wheat in the ingredients list is wheat glucose syrup... I'm guessing there's no way of knowing whether it may be cross-contaminated without contacting the manufacturer?

I'd really like to have a store-bought BBQ chicken too. My mother keeps trying to push me to eat it and ugh.


I spent the past week in Melbourne and thought I'd report back with some of restaurants we successfully ate at.

We went on the Colonial Tram Restaurant for lunch one day, OMG best gluten free bread EVER which reminds me I need to email them to find out what brand it was. They also came out with an individual gluten free cheese platter for dessert. Husband was very pleased since he still got a full sized (shared between 2) platter and there was no way I could eat all of my cheese, HIM on the other hand ... !!! http://www.tramrestaurant.com.au

In the Yarra Valley we ate at Meletos http://stonesoftheya...ey.com/meletos/and we also went to the Mornington Penninsula where we dined at Paringa Estate http://www.paringaes...rant/Restaurant

In Melbourne city we ate at:

Cookie - Thai place. Most of the medium-sized menu items can be made gluten free (their soy sauce contains gluten as does some other things like their chilli jam). We shared an egg net chicken salad and chicken and prawn pad Thai. NB their children's book themed decor is a little creepy. Don't say I didn't warn you. http://cookie.net.au

Operator 25 - breakfast/lunch. They are near the Raddison on Flagstaff and the Queen Victoria Markets. Like a lot of places, they offer gluten free bread but put it through the regular toaster (whyyyyyyyyy). However, when asked they were champs and put it under the grill on a separate pan, and we saw that the docket stated 'severe allergy' so the kitchen staff were made aware, top job!! Food and coffee both very good. Their bacon is amazing (confirmed gluten free). Hubby was also pleased with his meals (we ate there more than once, when you find something good you stick with it!). http://www.operator25.com.au

Meatball and Wine Bar - got the spiel about having a shared kitchen, but did not get sick. They wrote down gluten free on the meal docket and presented my meal to me with a 'here's your gluten free xxx' which I've always found to be a good sign. http://www.meatballandwinebar.com.au

Bomba Tapas Bar and Rooftop Terrace - menu not marked but knowledgeable staff. I loved that they brought out a little dish of smoked almonds for me in place of the complimentary bread. That was a really thoughtful touch. http://bombabar.com.au

Mamasita's - everything on the menu is gluten free except the dishes with flour tortillas which are marked with asterixes! http://mamasita.com.au/

Want to come back for - gluten free fish and chips at Hooked! They even have gluten free beer for beer-battered fish and a dedicated fryer! They are at three locations too! I really wanted to eat there but was too full from lunch, my husband's regular fish and chips looked AMAZING. http://www.hooked.net.au

Omelette wraps: make an omelette - any flavourings you want - stuff in a corn tortilla with mixed salad greens. I generally keep it simple with a plain omelette cooked in coconut oil (try it - amazing) with a bit of cheese, wrap it up with sliced tomato and baby spinach, perhaps also some baby rocket leaves.

I heard back from Woolies. The burgers are indeed gluten free.

"Thank you for contacting Woolworths with regards to the ingredients of the Jamie Oliver Beef Burgers Mexican Style.

I can advise you that this product does not contain gluten products and does not cross contact with any other ingredient that contains gluten."

PS: What is the deal with alcoholic cider? Are they all gluten free or not? I'm reading conflicting things on the Internet... seems like barley etc. is sometimes added in the brewing process?
