Jeopardy! Gluten-free for Five-Hundred, Alex

Celiac.com 02/17/2012 - You know you've hit the big time when you're a featured category on perennial TV game show favorite Jeopardy! And that is exactly what happened on show #6290 on Friday, January 13, 2012, when Jeopardy! devoted an entire category to: Gluten-Free Foods.

Jeopardy!The category began with the $200 clue: There's an octet of veggies in this alphanumeric brand's vegetable juice, but no gluten. The answer, phrased in famous Jeopardy! question-form, is of course: What is V-8 Juice?

The next clue, for $500, was: This classic canned meat from Hormel that debuted in 1937 has no gluten. The correct answer: What is Spam?

The $600 clue was: In the U.S., this soda is gluten free, as its Vanilla Zero version. The correct answer was: What is Coca-Cola?

For $800, the clue was: Don't despair: gluten-free candies from Nestle include the Butterfinger bar & these chocolate-covered peanuts. The correct answer was: What are Goobers?

In-coming champion Brandon Libby, an actor and Phillie Phanstormer from Mount Ephraim, New Jersey, ran nearly the entire category, correctly answering all of the clues, except the final one.

The final clue for Jeopardy's Gluten-Free Foods category was: This yogurt brand, known in France as "The Little Flower" has many gluten-free flavors, including strawberry kiwi. The correct answer is, of course: What is Yoplait?

However, that seemingly simple last question stumped all of the panelists.

You can review these questions, and have a go at some of the other questions from that day's show in the Jeopardy! Archive.

How sad that these brands often don't test their products and that they are junk food. This seems so misleading -- making it appear that following a gluten free diet is simpler than it is. I'm exhausted by fake gluten free products and menus. We need regulation and better monitoring of asymptomatic markers so badly in the US so that we can have our lives back.
