  1. I dined at Romano's Macaroni Grill in Reading, MA tonight and went with what I assumed would be a safe choice - a caesar salad. I went over the restaurant's gluten free policy and made sure to inform my waitress of how serious it was the my meal be gluten free (no croutons, requesting my salad be mixed in a clean bowl, etc). When I received my meal, I again verified with her that it had been cooked gluten free. My mind was put at ease and the meal was enjoyable - until the last bite. As soon as I put that last bite in my mouth a distantly familiar taste flooded my mouth. As I tried to place it, the taste finally hit me....a crouton. Panic ensued and as I examined my dish I found 4 crouton crumbs at the bottom of my dish. Sure enough, less than an hour later I was experiencing the all too familiar bloat and stomach pain. I will never eat at this restaurant again and I urge you to take caution when choosing this restaurant as well. I took all necessary precautions and despite being assured multiple times by waitstaff and management that my meal was prepared gluten free it was not. If they can't even get a simple caesar salad correct (dressing was on the side so they didn't even have to mix it!) how can you trust them with anything else. Be cautious and think twice before choosing this establishment.

    Smartfood popcorn is gluten free. So is Pirate's Booty. Yogurt is good too. Yoplait yogurts say clearly under the ingredients whether the flavor is gluten free. Careful with the Doritos mentioned early. Not all flavors are gluten free. You can check them out here: http://www.fritolay.com/our-snacks/doritos.html Good luck!
