  1. Halloween

    Thanks! And no, it doesn't have to necessarily be labelled gluten-free. I'll check the Kisses here. I think it's time we take a drive down to the US. Although we (in Canada) have good options when it comes to gluten-free packaged food, it seems the US has just that much more that it'll feel like we have a whole bunch of new food options....especially during events like Halloween.
  2. Halloween

    I think I will do that next year (order candy from the US). My daughter hasn't had Smarties since she was diagnosed with Celiac and the ones here (Canada) contain wheat so buying candy from a US store is what we'll do next Halloween. In the meantime, I'm trying to find treats that although don't actually have "gluten free" on the package, ingredients do not list any gluten containing items. So, are Reese peanut butter cups ok for someone with celiac? What about Aero chocolate bars? Or Oh Henry bars? If anyone has tried these, I'd love to hear if they're safe. Thanks.
  3. I believe it was based on the number of customer complaints.
  4. Halloween

    I wish there were comprehensive lists for candies sold in Canada. Every list I come across is US based. Also, apparently, not all similar candies contain the same ingredients. i.e.Smarties in Canada contain gluten, those in the US do not. No idea why
  5. Here are the ingredients for the Sundae (and Lingonberry sauce). They also look safe wrt being gluten free.
  6. Thank you. Here is what I found (from Ikea Canada). The frozen yogurt alone (without cone) seems to be fine, correct?
  7. Does anyone know if the soft serve frozen yogurt at Ikea (if it matters, I live in Toronto, Canada) is celiac safe to eat? I assume it would be, but not sure.
  8. Tried your recipe today and it's great! Thank you! Now I'd like to experiment a bit with the next one. I see you've suggested adding a sweetener such as maple. Is that maple syrup or some other form of maple sweetener?
  9. Thanks for this. Looking forward to trying them out.
  10. Ice Creams

    I don't think they're labelled gluten-free here in Canada but I trust they are. I'm sure my daughter (she has Celiac and hence we are all gluten-free in the family) will love them.
  11. Ice Creams

    I did email Nestle re their Haagen Dazs ice creams and I'm pretty happy with their response: "Thank you for inquiring about our gluten-free products. We always want to hear from our consumers and appreciate the opportunity to respond to your inquiry.To help our consumers make informed choices, major allergens including ingredients containing gluten are labeled on foods even when present in small quantities. Gluten is a type of protein found in cereal plants like wheat, barley, rye, triticale and oats. In case of gluten intolerance, before buying a food product, we recommend to always check the ingredients list. If gluten is added to a food it will be listed in the ingredient label as “gluten”, “hydrolyzed wheat gluten”, “wheat protein”, or “wheat protein isolate”.At this time, I do not have a complete listing of all our gluten-free products; however, if you are interested in finding out more about the gluten content of a particular product, please call our toll-free number, 1-800-387-4636, one of our Consumer Care Specialists will be happy to assist you.Thank you for choosing Nestlé,"
  12. Ice Creams

    Wow, had no idea Haagen Dazs had gluten free options anywhere. I hope the same is the case here in Canada.
  13. Ice Creams

    Mc Donald's soft serve ice cream is also safe, correct?
  14. Best gluten-free bread

    There are quite a few to choose from that we like but the one we like best right now.. Loaf: Northern Bakehouse All other types of bread: Delicious Without Gluten<--- this is a recent discovery for us and wow, is it great. Both are Canadian Celiac Association certified
