I haven't found the S'better Farms corndogs near me... yes I looked on the website at where to buy and I would have to drive into "THE CITY" (gawd forbid!!!) LOL! Anyone who knows me knows that I HATE TO DRIVE!!!! Ah, but for good corndogs, I guess I could force myself!

Hey Nisla, I contacted the company a while back. We live in AL, but they said we're in the Atlanta distribution are for Kroger and could get our manager to order them. They were very nice and said I could even call them if I had any trouble. You probably could too since you live so close to Atlanta. I've got the # if you need it. Maybe you won't have to make that drive to the city afterall! :D

How lucky that I found this thread! (I've spent a lot of time at this website but am new to the community forums). The development of gluten-free food products is a dream of our whole family. We are currently in the (early) planning stages of a line of gluten-free frozen convenience foods. We'd like to eventually open a gluten-free restaurant also, but that's WAY in the future! We're planning to start with frozen pizza - 3 varieties, cheese, pepperoni and vegetable, in both family size and individual size. Our next product will be lasagna, then ravioli.

This thread has really been a blessing, but I'd appreciate even more info! I'm fairly new to the celiac world, since I married a man two years ago with a celiac daughter who lives with us part time. After some initial frustrations I've started having fun learning to cook gluten-free. I love to cook anyway...as does my son who is starting cooking school. Since our entire facility will be gluten-free (unlike Amy's, which we love!) there shouldn't be problems with cross contamination. We'll also be avoiding oats since so many celiacs are also sensitive to oat products.

Since each new product will take years of development I'm still open to changing the order in which we introduce foods. Any thoughts on that? Also where do you purchase most of your gluten-free foods? Getting new products into major grocery chains is terribly expensive, so I don't see that happening in the next decade. MAYBE specialty stores like Whole Foods or Trader Joe's, but frankly I don't see any way to market these products at the beginning except for internet gluten-free malls such as the one affiliated with this site, which we love! Any thoughts on that?

Thanks for any and all comments!

I think the order you mentioned - pizza, then lasagna, then ravioli is right on!

Please, please make gluten-free products that are also egg-free. I find very few gluten-free desserts and breads that I can eat - all the good ones have egg in them.

Good luck to you.

Thanks! I'll have to work on the egg-free part...I've never tried cooking egg free! The pizza would be egg-free, but my pasta recipe contains eggs. Is cross-contamination an issue with eggs? I was planning to use the same dough sheeter for both the pizza crust and the pasta.

I would personally like to see 100% gluten free restaurants! I can't eat out anymore because of cross contamination.

I voted for more convenience foods since Amy's is the only one that I can buy here and a lot of people seem to react to their products. I haven't had Amy's in a long time because I don't want to get sick!

Oh my gosh- Yes! A 100% gluten free restaurant that could also accomodate other intolerances and allergies.

Also, I would love something healthy, organic and convenient like Amy's but made in a 100% dedicated facility. I haven't microwaved anything preprepared in months.

Dear Neshy,

I am also a QUT student and doing a project about the gluten free products (about marketing in Brisbane).

nice to meet you here. I would like to know that which subject are you doing for this assignment. And it will be great if we can share some information.

Hope to hear from you.

thanks

Me too! My local Acme has begun carrying Amy's Rice Bowls (gluten-free). They look so good, but I know that so many of you have had reactions from them. :(

I just thought of a pre-made gluten-free (and hopefully casein free!) dinner:

Chinese!

Just imagine... Sweet and sour chicken balls, egg rolls, chicken fried rice, lemon chicken, vegetable stir fry...

mmmm

I would like all of the appetisers from PF Changs (except letuce wraps as I am sick of eating them). Yum, all of the appetisers gluten-free. I can dream.

By the way I order the combination fried rice (PF Changs) gluten-free and they tell me what meats or seafood they have that can go in it. Some has already been seasoned and that is why they tell me. Usually I end up with chicken and shrimp fried rice. It is so good. And no it is not on their gluten-free menu.

How about something cheesy - like cream cheese, or mozzerella... something gluten-free, casein free, lactose free and soy free?

I would love something like that!! Although I have been able to find gluten free pizza bases, I can't find a gluten free, casein free & soy free cheese anywhere.

I would also love gluten free, casein free & soy free chocolate! :rolleyes:

I would love to see more glutenfree stores, but I wonder if they would econmically viable as more then a 'hole in the wall/hard to find" kind of place as far as local shoppers go. The same goes for restaurants. Yes, I want to see it, but is it economically viable? It would be tragic beyond words for such a place to open, and end up bankrupting the fine people trying to make a go of it.

I'm lucky to live near a well educated health food store with a good selection of gluten free items. (That's Atlantis in Dunwoody Georgia)

Now, I'm about to go out and look at one of those krogers for some corndogs... but before I go, I would like to say that there are two things I would love to see gluten free. One is Krispy Creme glazed donuts. I haven't seen anything like that on the gluten free market. Those New Orleans numbers that are hard to spell but are pronouced "Been-YAaaaaa!" might do as a mix. Anyone have a good recipe for those?

Another product I would like to see is a good HARD fry batter. I have been meaning to experiment in this reguard, but my minor experiments haven't come up with anything decent. Now, a hard fry is not a 'breading.' I'm taking about fish and chips, not zaterans or shake and bake. Catfish rolled in cornmeal is grand, but it's not like english deep fried cod, or that chicken from popeyes. (I love that chicken from popeyes.)

A hard fry batter must come out of the boiling oil as hard crust, it sticks close to the meat rather then falling off, and it is crunchy, not soft. Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd it tastes good.
