I posted before about the one thing that I most mourned when I had to go gluten free was Clamato Juice because I used to LOVE having my weekend Caesar (it's a Canadian concoction with vodka, clamato juice, worshesthire sauce, tabasco sauce and celery salt, sounds weird, but it is delicious!!!!) Anyway, I almost cried when I e-mailed Motts and they replied that it was NOT gluten free. :(

I was at the A & P supermarket a couple of weeks ago and read the ingredients on their name brand clam juice. It was different than Motts so I thought, "Hey, maybe........." :rolleyes: I e-mail them and this is a reply:

Dear Mrs.

Our Corporate Brands Department has informed us that the Master Choice Tomato Clam Cocktail Regular does not contain "Gluten" 1.89L. :lol::lol::lol: But, the product will be updated shortly and unfortunately the recipe will contain gluten. The label will be updated at that time to reflect the formulation change. :angry:

Thank you for your patience.

I have gone out and purchased a supply of bottles so at least I can have Caesars for awhile!!!!!

I don't get it...why do they have to change the formula? It just doesn't make sense to me that they have to add wheat or another form of gluten to the product. Oh, well...stock up! Maybe temporarily clear out one of the kids' bedrooms so you can stack it up :lol:

Hi there, Karen,

I just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed reading your post...seems that you are in touch with your feelings about all of this...

One thing I am learning is that I MUST keep applauding myself for continuing to accept that liife is diffferent now...

I am different...healthier...and that's all that matters...

Food is food...there will always be some great things that I can eat...

But, health is health...

Food now only REALLY matters to me if I know it won't hurt me...

I'm glad that you will get a little 'withdrawal time' from your favorite drink...perhaps you can find a new favorite that is 100% safe for you? Maybe even someone you'll like even more?

Love, Gina

:)

Hi Gina!

Well, the way I figure it, ranting and raving over the unfairness of this disease is not going to change one crumb..... and since one of my continuing symptoms is fatigue (some days much worse than others......), I am not going to use up any energy in being angry at the situation - I don't have much energy to go around!!!!

:D

Actually, I have pretty well gotten used to this diet - I don't even think twice about things I used to have all the time before (except my Caesar, that is!!!!) <_<

@ Karen, maybe you could stock up a lot of these bottles. Then buy the ingredients and try to mix it on your own. And then just always go back and forward and compare, until you mixed it with the "right" taste of the original. I know, things like that can make you angry. It would have made me a lot angry, too. But isn't that a good idea?

Hugs, Stef

I'm already a pro (I am a Caesar connoisseur :D ) But because of the fact that the main ingredient (the clam juice) was off limits to me, I could no longer make my beloved "weekend drink"..... After a long week, there was nothing better than having a weekend bbq in the backyard and have a nice cold Caesar drink with it!! B)

Oh well, at least I should be able to stock up enough to last me through this summer (I wonder how long of a shelf life they have, how long can I store it before it is no good any more :huh: )

Hey celiac3270, now that we have moved to a house where the girls can have their own rooms, things are much more peaceful in the household..... :P If I put them back together again, there would be World War III for sure!! :o Eileen is into AC/DC and Pink Floyd, guitar lessons, etc. and Rhiannon is still in the Dora the Explorer stage...... Nope, the two don't mix!!!! :lol: Even if the drink was the elixir of life, it's wouldn't be worth it!!!! ;) I can store a bunch in the basement though..... :D
