  1. I wasnt in Spain since I got my celiac disease. But friends told me, that you can order gluten-free burgers in every McDonald in Spain. They have gluten-free buns there. In German McDs the staff dont even know, what gluten is. So I think in Spain people are better informed, than in most other european countrys.
  2. Gluten Free In Germany

    In Germany there is a big drugstore chain called "DM". There you get a lot of different bread, rolls, cookies, snacks. Normally you find a DM-market in every town, even in the small ones.
  3. Hello! Before I got the diagnosis, I visited the States every year. Last time 2009. I loved travelling around. Sometimes via coach, sometimes via car. Now I am very affraid, because I am travelling the second time since I have celiac disease. Last time I only went to Vegas, where I ate of the buffets. In Germany, I know, that the french fries at Mc Donalds are gluten free because of their own fryer. So you can eat salat, fries and the icecream. Are there some hints of some chains, where you can regulary eat things like fries, mash potatoes, baked potatoes or something like that? By the way, I am going to New York - Manhattan - next week. For Example in Germay, the mash potates at KFC are glutened. I dont want to risk something on my 4-day-trip. So I will take a lot of food (bread, crackers and so on) with me. But I think it would be nice, to eat something fresh. Maybe someone could give me some hints? Thanks a lot GermanUsaFan
