GLUTEN FREE EXPO

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I didn't know where to post this or if I'm able to post on that calendar but there is a GLLUTEN FREE EXPO this summer in Worcester, Massachusetts. It's June 22-23. I've never been to one and I came across it by accident and I got really excited because it's only about an hour from me! I'm sure most of you probably know or maybe its posted on here but I figured I'd post it just in case! I notice now as I'm posting this there's other locations too! Tickets are cheap and they even give out a promo code for a discount. :)

Just watch out. I just went to the expo in Schaumburg, IL, and ended up getting glutened. I realized afterward that I ate all these samples thinking they were gluten free, and they weren't. One company was advertising some sugar, and had made some cake, but then I realized.... How do I know if this contains any other ingredients that might have gluten? Did they make it with a blender or utensils that had gluten contamination? 

 

Makes me realize the only safe things would be packaged giveaways with gluten free labeling.

 

My fault for not thinking things through. It was just too exciting thinking i could try it all and enjoy without worry.
