  1. Yummy! I am going to have to try this!
  2. Thanks! I appreciate you explaining it to me! I don't understand all those regulations!
  3. That's good to know that they aren't REQUIRED to put it on, HOWEVER why do they put SELECTIVE ones on? I ended up contacting the company and am waiting to see what they say...it could have been CC on the factory line too!
  4. I'm not going to say where I bought this chocolate or the kind, but if on the outer box list of ingredients differ from the smaller ones inside it (warehouse packaging)is that an issue? I got glutened because the outer box listed: Sugar, unsweetened chocolate, glucose, cocoa butter, butter oil, soya lecithin, natural and artificial flavour, citric acid, ivertase. But, look at the inner box difference: Sugar, unsweetened chocolate, glucose(MADE FROM CORN AND/OR WHEAT), cocoa butter, butter oil (made from milk), soya lecithin, natural and artificial flavour, citric acid, ivertase. Do you think I should contact the company or is this normal to not list the full ingredients on outside of warehouse packaging?
  5. I plan on having a FULL gluten-free meal! This way she can see that there is lots of foods, just different ways to prepare it that would make it safe for me! I also can't eat potatoes so they'll have to go through one meal without them!
  6. Yes, I have a few times, maybe I should do it again for awhile so they understand more!
  7. Reputation ?

    Thanks everyone! I just had no idea what it was for, lol!
  8. I haven't been on the boards too long and was wondering how a person's "reputation" gets higher? Do people vote? Is it how many posts you do?
  9. Thanks, it IS hard to deal with family like this and am so glad that I found this site for the support I need! I agree with you guys that people just don't get it! They think it is a lifestyle choice not one that your body has made for you! No, I'm not doing this to lose weight (though it doesn't hurt!), no I'm not doing this to make your life difficult; I am doing this so I don't feel like I'm going to die every time I eat! Thanks everyone for your support!
  10. I'm heading to beautiful Vancouver BC, Canada later this week and wonders if anyone knows of some good gluten-free restaurants there? Any ideas would be super helpful!
  11. I have brought my own food...ONCE...I might-as-well of committed murder from the looks I got, sigh! Hubby has tried to talk to her but she is older (same age as my grandma) and forgets to read labels! I think I might just start bringing my own food as it IS better than getting glutened because "I can just scrape the coating off the chicken", NO I CAN'T!!!! Yes, this inner dialog as I have been writing this has convinced me that it is worth getting glared at so that I am not sick!
  12. i did not know that; here I was thinking it was a western Canada chain only! Learn something new everyday!
  13. Has anyone else who couldn't handle lactose have it now that you are gluten-free? For my whole life I couldn't until now and I love dairy now!
  14. We go there once a week & every week for the last year its been a struggle... last week all i could eat was iceberg lettuce and one boiled egg; everyone else ate stirfry.
