  1. Yup, ALL of their drinks are gluten-free. I called corporate headquarters, so enjoy!!!!
  2. Hi Judy~ I've called them on this before and they were VERY uncooperative. I've continued to use the spices because like you said there were no ingredients listed and it should therefore be simply what the particular spice is and that's it. Please let me know if you find out anything. Thanks, Kristy
  3. Many of the drinks at Starbucks are Gluten Free. You just need to call them and they'll give you a list. I get lattes with their flavored syrups ALL th Time. Enjoy!!!!
  4. Could someone answer my last post please? Pretty please? thanks!!!!!
  5. Carrabba's also has a gluten-free menu and so does Outback and Texas Roadhouse. I eat at Dillon's on Boylston ALL THE TIME and they're very used to me so if you go there you should be fine, just bring yuor allergy card. Also Bangkok City on Mass Ave is very used to me and they have yummy Thai food. I bring my triumph Thai dining card in there. If you don't have them, you should order them. They're amazing!!! We should all frequent a different place each month so that all of Boston gets to know us and in the future we can eat anywhere! Yea! Sounds like a plan
  6. Now I'm really confused..... Two questions: 1) Do we even have to worry about sushi rice then, or is it all safe? 2)I never realized that Sake could have Barley in it.....I thought that the gluten-free"spirits" list on celiac.com had Sake as a safe drink.....HELP! I get sick almost everytime I go for sushi but I always have Sake. Could this be the problem? Kristy
  7. I've been trying the sushi route and have gotten sick a couple of times. I have the Triumph cards though and am getting better at it Since the cards say to check "sushi rice ingredients", the sushi chef wouldn't give me any rice! I had to beg the waitress and explain that as long as there wasn't mirin in the rice, it was ok. The rice only had sushi vinegar(which I'm assuming is rice vinegar... and sugar) Is there anything in sushi rice that I should be looking out for? Also, with wasabi, what exactly is in it that soemtimes makes it not safe for us? The triumph card doesn't explain that so it would be great to know. Thanks so much!!!! Kristy
  8. Thank you guys for getting back to me so quickly I've had an endoscopy, colonoscopy, ultrasound, bloodwork, and a barium swallow and have been told that their is no ulcer. I can't believe that this pain is from lactose, but maybe it's one of the casues. I should probably be tested for other food allergies since I've been on allergy shots my whole life for other thing, pollen, dust, etc. After you guys found out you had celiac were there other tests done for other digestive disorders besides the ones I've had done? What's a gastroscopy? I took Pepto about an hour ago and it did nothing! Ugh! Man, I'm cranky.....
  9. HI everyone! A quick question for ya. My diet is totally gluten-free and my antibody numbers have gone down drastically, yea! So why am I still in excruciating stomach pain? I have severe reflux and just consulted with a surgeon about the lap nissen procedure. But I've never heard of stomach cramps being a side-effect of reflux. Not only is my stomach burning, it's also crampy and I have really bad gas pain. It hurts so bad! I'm so sick of this. I'm sorry to vent but why won't the pain go away? Sometimes I just lose my patience and reach my breaking point. Does anyone else have severe reflux? My GI says that it's completely seperate from celiac. Just when I thought that I had figured it all out, the cramps have returned full force. There could be cross-contamination of course but this hurts too bad and happens to frequently to be cc. HELP!!!! Kristy
  10. Hi Holly! I called Dunkin Donuts and hey said that they were working on testing their products for gluten but couldn't give me any answers....yet. I wouldn't trust that yummy latte. I just stick to plain coffee there or tea with cream and sugar. Maybe you can try giving them a call and seeing what they say.....I called about 6 months ago. take care, Kristy
  11. That's so AWESOME! Right on! Thanks glix!!!!
  12. I'm having a nasty craving for a slurpee and was wondering if anyone has had one recently and is they are gluten-free or not?!?!? Any takers? HELP!!! Kristy
  13. I just had a LONG conversation with a Claim Jumper rep and she was SOOO HELPFUL! They just put a basic gluten-free menu on their website this morning but this is just a basic one. We talked about what ingredients are safe and not safe and I told her to visit the celiac.com website to read about safe ingredients. She was so excited and willing o help! I definitely am going to go back to Claim Jumper. Let me know if anyone else gives it a try!
  14. HI Ruth! Actually, the hot dogs are safe. They are Kahn's hot dogs, which are gluten-free, and I haven't had a problem with them. I've also had the popcorn and been ok. They use Gulden's mustard and Hunt's ketchup so I just brought in some packets of Heinz and brought my own gluten-free hot dog bun. They also serve wine so you can have a drink if ya like I haven't had the ice cream becuase I wasn't sure if it was safe. They also have cracker jack's which are gluten-free. You don't ahve to sneak food in if it's in a sealed container. I've called Aramark, the company that sells to Fenway and they never returned my call. Please let me know if you get in touch with them and enjoy the game! GO RED SOX!!!!
  15. Cool! So, why does thae little envelope thingy(that's the technical term by the way ) to the left of the pinned topic have a seal across the flap? Or is that just what I see on my computer becasue I started the post? Kris
