Aldi have their Christmas stuff out. They've got gluten free mince pies, I cheated and had one already, very nice... There's also gluten-free xmas puddings! Didn't cheat on that though. I have standards... Didn't see any gluten-free xmas cake though it shows one on their site.

I saw their non gluten-free xmas foods out, like stollen. Looked so good, made me sad.

Yeah they looked fantastic didn't they? They had little mini stollen 'bites' some covered in chocolate :(

Then there was the big stollen, which my family will be tucking into this xmas, maybe before the panetone.

There were lots of other yummy looking things. 

BUT WE HAVE PUDDING

So not all is lost!

Ahh... mince pie season again.  I had a very pleasant experience at our local hospital the other day.  I was waiting to see the gastroenterologist and decided to call in at the hospital Costa for a mint tea (still being careful having had gastritis all summer) and  couldn't resist something to eat.  When one recovers from gastritis, one shouldn't have an empty stomach for too long, you know...

Costa didn't have any gluten-free Mini Bakewells in but they did have a newly delivered batch of gluten-free individually wrapped mince pies. 

The Costa mince pie is a triumph!  

(As are the iced mince pies at Sainsbury's, by the way).

JMG - update about the Cadbury's Individual Chocolate Chunks that you will recall were in Tescos last Christmas.  I have a horrible feeling that this year they have joined the ranks of 'May also contain wheat' - I read something worrying to that effect on line.  Let's hope I'm wrong!

YES!

I'd forgotten about those, they are delicious :)

I will keep eye out for the Costa mince pie, I was in there last week and it was packed because the Xmas drinks were out. Amazing to see how coffee culture has caught on over here.

Hope you are soon feeling better Christiana :)

Thank you.  I think I am now on the road to recovery but it is strange, my system still feels not quite right when I'm hungry.  It is a different version of 'feeling sick because I am hungry' than I had before.  I don't know, perhaps it's nothing to do with the gastritis, probably old age. Nowt a mince pie and some Hendersons Relish won't fix!! 

As regards Costa Coffee, is it safe?  A while back their allergy listing indicated there might be some CC but thinking about it that was the hot chocolate I wanted to order.  I don't know about the coffee.

    • Just read the ingredients?  Its very unlikely to have gluten in pickled stuff or cheese (except the beer cheese).  Never seen a marshmallow with gluten (I like Kraft because I think they are better).  I use McCormick for most spices & vanilla..  they are just spices.  Never seen a vanilla with gluten.     IN the US, wheat will be clearly announced in the ingredients (its a law).  Rye is only in a few things like bread or crackers & its an ingredient so it will be listed as an ingredient.  Barley is listed as barley or malt (usually barley malt).  Brewers yeast sometimes contains gluten - so avoid.  Oats need to say gluten-free oats or the product needs to be listed as gluten-free.   Lots of pre-packed lunch meats actually say gluten free on them.  Go to the store and look!
    • I'm probably the most annoying person on this forum. Lately I've been posting everyday😊  ok wondering a few brand options for products just need a list.... Pickles: Green olives: Banana peppers: Lunchmeat: turkey/salami/pepperoni Hard/block cheese (cheddar or colby): (was told the meijer brand block cheese contained gluten through, that was by the store manager so don't know if it was fully accurate) Marshmallows: Vanilla and cinnamon: Garlic powder: That's it for now I'll probably think of more. Trying to add some easy things to my diet.   
    • Hi Your tests indicates that you are positive for Celiac. I have a problem with the diagnose too. I have recently started to research about gluten intolerance and I have so many symptoms... It's like all the health issues I had all my life have an answer now. I think my mother had also Celiac disease. Unfortunately, I have lost her this year, she had bowel cancer, which spread to her lungs and bones. The problem is that I made some tests and I am apparently negative. It's true that I haven't eaten too much gluten in the last month, even my bumpy skin (on my arms and legs) looks better these days. These are my results: Tissue Transglutaminase Antibody IgA 2.25 with standard range <20 Tissue Transglutaminase Antibody IgG 1.12 with standard range <20 I know I may sound crazy, but I hoped that my diagnose would be Celiac positive, because I would finally have an answer why I feel sick and tired almost every day. And if my problem became real, then I could just start applying the solution. Any answer is appreciated. Thanks !  
    • Yeah mine was the constipation really bad, it clears up some but my constipation was partially trigger by the damage causing malabsoprtion of magnesium leading to the constipation along with other things and complications. All sore layers up into a big compounding issue, example the tiredness is a combo deal to and varies from person to person, part of it is nutrient deficiency particularly b-vitamins vitamin D, iron. magnesium, etc. Another part with the constipation has to do with the poop being stuck in you so long can cause a sort of poison like effect, and not letting your system run right. I will give some tips on top of the gluten free diet. I also suggest you read the gluten free 101, a crumb or gluten residue from scratched cookware that retains gluten can cause your antibodies to flare back up.

      Constipation, with this I suggest you supplement with magnesium citrate, Natural Vitality Magnesium Calm, start off with very small doses like 1/4tsp and over 1-2 weeks adjust it up to the full dose. It might hit a bit hard and cause loose stools while you body adjust.
      Tiredness/stress Look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy and Liquid Health Neurological support, 1tbsp each 3 times a day before meals. This will work with your B-vitamins
      You might need a Vitamin D or Iron Supplement in addition.

    • For me, the DH rash was what lead my Dr. to have me tested for celiac.  Since I have IBS, I was thinking that was what was causing my stomach issues- and I was so bloated that I looked pregnant.  It is still my DH that lets me know, I have somehow encountered gluten/cross contamination.  My skin will start burning and itching within an hour of consuming gluten. And if I don't take an antihistamine ( which helps, but does not entirely get rid of it) then I am in big trouble with the blistering etc.  The stomach issues don't occur until 8-12 hours later.  One thing I wanted to mention- you do NOT have to keep eating gluten for the endoscope/biopsy to show celiac.
