Celiac.com 05/27/2017 - The folks in Norwich, England know a thing or two about fish and chips. So does Lucy's Chips, which has operated a popular stall on Norwich market for the last 40 years.

So, many people were likely surprised to see Lucy's suddenly double in size. And likely even more were surprised to see Lucy's offer a gluten-free version of their popular fish and chips, each prepared in separate areas.

But Lucy's Chips stall is now under new management, which has driven both the expansion, and the introduction of a new menu to to broaden the appeal of their already popular staples.

Lucy's had already begun frying its chips in vegetable oil to appeal to vegetarians, and their new menu now boasts a range gluten-free items, including gluten-free versions of unusual products, including battered halloumi, toad in the hole and calamari.

Barclay Gray, 50, from Sprowston, who runs the stall, said: "Before we were just chips and sausages but…we now have loads of different items available at the stall…to cater to vegetarians and gluten intolerant people.

Mr Gray explained that the recent expansion means that he can fry his fish and gluten-free products separately.

Even though Lucy's is under new management, says Mr. Gray, "It has been kept in the family. We're just carrying on and improving where we can."

Both Mr, Gray and his customers seem pleased with the changes. "The reaction has been very good. Customers have said that the stall looks lovely, they're so pleased that they can now get gluten free fish and chips."

If you find yourself in Norwich, and get the urge for some tasty gluten-free fish and chips, be sure to look for Lucy's at the Norwich market. If you do, be sure to send us a note about your experience.

There is a little fish & chips shop on the SW corner of King St. and Townline Rd. in Oshawa, ON in Canada called "Schooners" that has been certified for gluten free fish & chips as well as many other items you would find at any other chip shop, and they are so good you will not say a word until every crumb is gone! I was raised in a fish & chip shop as a child and teenager and had not had this staple food for over 15 years until I saw this small sign on the side of the road by the Plaza where this shop is. There are people who drive up to 2 hours or more for this wonderful plateful of "home!"

I have had three different flavors of Ricola cough drops this week with no problem other than a possible sugar headache from so many of them. It could just be a sick headache though.

Hi Louie and welcome Sorry you're feeling poorly. Although some do experience it, it's more likely some cross contamination than withdrawal from gluten. You're learning the hard way that the longer you go on the diet the more sensitive your body becomes to even tiny amounts of gluten. ...

Are original or berry ricolas cough drops good to go? I didn't see the bag said anything about gluten-free and there were two ingredients that I was unsure about, the starch syrup and the Carmel flavoring.
