Popcorn Palace Issues Allergy Alert on 1-Gallon Value Bag Products Due to Undeclared Wheat

Popcorn Palace of Schiller Park, IL, is issuing this statement to alert people with allergies to Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Milk, Soy, and Wheat that some of our 1-Gallon Value Bags contain the undeclared ingredients.  Bags were shipped with the ingredient and allergen information not applied directly to the immediate container and important allergen information may not have reached the end consumer.

People with one of these allergies run a risk of serious or potential life threatening allergic reactions if they consume these products:
  • Cheddar Cheese, 1-Gallon Value Bag (contains milk, soy)
  • White Cheddar, 1-Gallon Value Bag (contains milk, soy)

I was in the hospital once for six days and had nothing except the glucose in the iv solution- and I survived. Since it is only for two weeks I wouldn't worry about a balanced diet, or getting every nutrient every day. Some celiacs react to oats, but lots of steamed rice would be good for getting calories. If you took nuts that would add both fat and protein in a relatively small space per calorie. Then just add a gluten free multivitamin/mineral. Sounds like a great trip - hope you have a good and healthy time.

If you can get plain rice, go for it. Plain fish, meat, too. Maybe beef jerky and protein bars ? I wouldn't bother with the Nima- it is giving a lot of false positives

They are very highly refined and should not contain gluten. If you aren't ingesting it, it is safe. You could roll in wheat flour - if you could keep it out of your mouth. i stay away from stuff with obvious wheat -usually wheat germ oil. But I know Celiacs that very carefully use hair products with wheat germ oil for thier curly hair. I just tend to get shampoo in my mouth .

That's a very normal reaction believe it or not. I would always tell someone to stay on gluten before testing is done because it's a lot easier staying on it than it is reintroducing it. I felt worse on my challenge than I had before giving it up the first time. Whilst a definite diagnosis is the aim of many (I tried myself) and has benefits in terms of health monitoring etc there is no treatment other than the gluten-free diet so if you get negative or inconclusive results and can't face the further challenge you could choose to forgo it and just go gluten free. Either way there will be plenty of support for you here. all the best.
