Thanks for posting this! I can't wait to try them. Blueberry with frosting was my old favorite. But Strawberry without is fine for now. I looked around yesterday but didn't seem them. May have to order if they aren't at Whole Foods.

I found the Strawberry and the Apple Glutino "pop tart" pastries at a northern CA Whole Foods. 

 

And I am in so much trouble, because the one flavor I just ate, the apple cinnamon, is much better than I expected for a gluten free pastry, it is not rock hard like a traditional pop tart, and it is actually tender, and the filling is not cloying, but partially fruit juice sweetened.  B)

 

I didn't really need an apple pop tart right now, but, in the spirit of experimentation, I made the sacrifice !   :lol:

Just one more thing I like about you...you are willing to "take one for the team". . :D ..and my thighs do not need them either.

I'm thinking that if you put a little ice cream or whipped cream on them, you could pass them off as dessert!

There will be images of Pop-tarts swirled with whip cream dancing in my head tonight.

I wish they had cinnamon brown sugar! I miss those so much from my childhood (pre-Celiac) days. 

 

 

I do, too.  Haven't tried the apple cinnamon. Maybe you would like that?

 

 Maybe if they sell well, they will add flavors.

Great suggestion--I always loved the Brown Sugar Cinnamon, and the Apple Cinnamon are slightly reminicent.  Actually, I like these better since they are not so sweet, and the pastry is flakier.

I finally got around to Whole Foods and picked up a box of each flavor, Strawberry and Apple. Yum! Apple was my favorite as the strawberry was a bit tart. But still. Loved them both. They are like flakey pastries with fruit filling. I like them better than the regular pop tarts with hard crusts and sort of chemical taste. These are a 10!

I was very surprised at how good these were.  Like others have stated, the pastry part is very flakey and not hard like those gluten Pop Tarts.  Filling not overly sweet, either.

Sometimes it's so good to pass some junk food down the pipes...... :lol:

I was unfortunate enough to try the Eco-Planet ones.  OMG how horrible that was.  I knew it was going to be bad when I tried to break one in half and I had to struggle with it.  The crust is dense, like a brick, and twice as thick as a Pop-Tart's crust should be.  The icing looks like it has been hand-applied by toddlers, and has no taste, and a texture like a layer of dried glue.  In between the bricks is a layer about one molecule thick of filling, which again had no flavor resembling strawberry (the flavor they were supposed to be).  I got through about three bites before I gave up.  Mine is one of the reviews on Am@zon.  Even though they don't carry this yet, if you look it up on Google that comes up as a product not sold yet.  What a crushing disappointment that was.

I will  admit  I  didn't  read  all the posts  here but  want to throw  out  my  two  cents!!!!  Glutino  pop  tarts  are  very good  if  you are  a pop tart  lover. You  need  to  add  your  own icing   if  you like them iced...

Eco-planet  pop  tarts  :  a  few  years  ago  I  sampled  them &  they  tasted  like  cardboard so unless  they  went  back to the  drawing  board &  re-invented  them  Glutino has  them beat  by 100%...

Loved the strawberry ones!

 

 

well, my friends with the gluten-free cafe are carrying Strawberry Glutino Pop tarts and they asked me if I wanted to try them.

I said no, but somehow, they landed inside my house. (did I take the box anyway?gee, I am not sure):-D

I should not have them because they are:

(1) high carbs

(2) high histamine-inducing

(3) fattening as all hell

(4) totally unnecessary to life

and yet, I did. I toasted it and buttered it  and.........

holy smokes!! they taste........... GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

sigh.....  for pete's sake....................I TOTALLY suck at dieting.

I should wear a muzzle. LOL

    • Ah yes... dry beans. I am fortunate to live near a plant that only processes beans, pulses and rice (Western Rice Mills if you're on the west coast). I doubt that they test, but I would suspect that the biggest part of the risk with that type of food is in the plant where they pack them, as things like barley pearls and wheat berries are often sold as dried goods and would probably be done on the same lines. I would agree that dry beans could be problematic depending on source. 
    • No, Armour has always been gluten free.  The formulation changed a few years back and during the switch, there was a shortage.  That has long since resolved.  Forest Pharmaceuticals (manufacturer of Armour) was bought out by Activas in 2015.  They increased the price!  Now it is comparable to synthetic.   Imtried to find a good and reputable source about the history of thyroid replacement.  Here is one link -- the story is pretty accurate, but the site is trying to sell you stuff.   https://thyroidpharmacist.com/articles/the-history-of-natural-desiccated-thyroid-medications/  
    • If she is now at a public school, accommodations can be made for disabilities.  Here is a link that explains a 504 plan and an IEP, but you will have to investigate based on your state.   https://www.foodallergy.org/education-awareness/advocacy-resources/section-504-and-written-management-plans https://www.understood.org/en/school-learning/special-services/504-plan/the-difference-between-ieps-and-504-plans http://kidshealth.org/en/parents/504-plans.html https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/504faq.html i am not very knowledgeable about this subject, so I encourage you to contact your school district for help.  Your doctor might be a good resource too.   You might consider homeschooling until she has been diagnosed and has received treatment.  The Department of Education can direct you to homeschooling resources.  There are lots of wonderful programs out there and you can get financial support.   I wish you all well!  
    • You make a good point about being neurotic. I'm slowly getting better. I guess time will tell. But thank you for the insight.   As far as roommates go, that's a good idea. I've definitely been thinking about that. But these guys are my best friends and the process of getting a new roommate this late in my schooling might be hard. Although, I will keep my eye out for the opportunity. 
    • Hello I understand what you are going thru. My son almost died from going 27 years without figuring out it was gluten and then corn causing all the illness. I brought him to Drs, none of them figured out gluten intolerance. Oh they told us he had everything else. Then as time went on, he found out he has issues with corn. Corn has identical genetic make-up as gluten.  Corn is sneaky and everywhere. Contact the manufactures, ask them if there is a chance of contamination or corn ingredient in their products. My son gets neurological problems when gluten/cornized. Anxiety, obsessive thoughts, can not think. He had to be taken out of school and homeschooled. He just found out the digestive enzymes he was taking contain an enzyme that is grown on barley. Enzymedic basic.  My suggestions for you are, seriously go find another place to live. You need your mind and health to continue school. If you don't and continue living where you are, school will suffer. In your spare time, find out all you can about gluten and what other foods act like gluten in the body. Like I said, corn has the same genetic make up as gluten, some people can not eat rice either. This is something that is doable, it is just becoming very aware of what goes in the mouth. Please find another place to live. You don't need to deal with those jerks, you have enough going on with school and health. There might be other people in your school that are celiac or gluten sensitive. Find them, post notes up, start a newsletter about gluten free lifestyle. I bet there are many people that would welcome that newsletter.  You don't need to do this alone!   You are the most important person in your life, you deserve to feel good and be respected! Stay away from those that don't respect you. Search out those that will.  Eating out is something that can be done, find those places that will work with you. Ask to have burgers or meat cooked on aluminum foil. Fresh veggies, fruits all gluten free. Again, research restaurants in your area willing to work with you. Even call the manager and talk to them. All the best to you!  Hang in there.
