I saw decorate your own marshmallow peeps packages in CVS. I called the company just to double check that they were gluten free and also lactose free - and they are. The woman was very nice and said that all their products are gluten free. Yay!

Several things here: 1) I didn't know that my kids and I were the only people in the world who made a habbit out of biting the heads off Marshmallow Peeps Chicks. That is frightening. 2) I was REALLY glad when the dietician told me that Peeps were gluten-free 3) I have NEVER heard of microwaving them, didn't think about them getting bloated, and I can't WAIT to get to the store to buy SEVERAL packages!!!!!

Thanks for the GREAT idea, Richard!

Peeps are made almost all year round. I've seen Pumpkins, stars, hearts, christmas trees, even 4th of July ones. They have a website & maybe they show them. I know that's were I saw the co. state that they are gluten-free.

Unfortunately peeps ARE gluten free (I'm not a fan).

However, as Richard mentioned they ARE fun to microwave. I personally LOVE to blow them up in the microwave. Always remember to place them on something that you want to throw away, because they are SUPER hard to get off of the plate or whatever you put them on.

Also, here is a fun website devoted to peep research! ha (aka blowing them up, drounding them, etc) It's good for a few laughs.

Are we the only family that opens the package and lets them sit out on the counter for about week before eating so they get chewy???

Momandgirls, My sons and I are also weird in that we like to experiment with chicks and peeps. My oldest son loves peeps, but is diabetic, but I would let him have a couple at Easter after eating a protein-rich meal. Our whole family loves them stale. If they are a little chewy, you really feel like you've eaten something instead of slivering down! We also liked to microwave them and (before I went gluten free) made the best 'smores that way with them!! Yes, we are weird, too. The only way to be! :P

I like to leave my peeps open in the fridge so that they get all cold and hard. Then I bite off the heads.

I like them just a little bit stale too. I have to say the strawberry heart Peeps I got from my BF for valentines day were really, really yummy. Just a hint of strawberry flavor. I'm going to the grocery store after work today to do a normal shopping run, and after this thread, have taken out my list and added peeps.

Thanks guys.

    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
    • What you all are going through is normal. It took a long time for celiac to progress to the point where you were diagnosed and it takes time for the antibodies to resolve and for you to return to full health but you will. Eat as many whole foods as you can, stay away from oats and limit or delete dairy until you have healed for a while longer. Some of us will react to even gluten free oats so wait until you have been symptomless to try them out.  Sublingual B12 may help you heal a bit faster and do take a good gluten free vitamin. Be careful of the 'whole foods' vitamins as some will have barley or wheat grass in them. Eventually you will recognize when you get hit by CC, in my case I get a shift like I am falling sideways and an almost instant change in mood for the worse but it took a while to realize that was what was happening.  If you take any prescription meds do make sure that your pharmacist knows you are celiac and that they are checking all meds prescribed. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as it will have a lot of good information to keep you safe. Welcome to you all and I hope you heal quickly.
    • Did you take any vitamin D supplements when that tested low? Was anything done to correct the other deficiencies you had?  Do you take a multivitamin now?  I think correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be the first line of defense.   It's the simplest way of ruling out more sinister conditions.  Vitamin deficiency diseases can be mistaken for other diseases.  For example,  a deficiency in niacin (pellagra) can be mistaken for Celiac Disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Cycling Lady broke vertebra in her neck throwing up.  She had anemia, a result of iron and B12 deficiencies.   I understand how you can just blow off the importance having adequate vitamin and mineral levels.  I did.  My doctor did, too. But when a friend suggested vitamin D deficiency might be causing my severe depression,  I begged my doctor to check my vitamin D level.  He ranted he couldn't make any money prescribing vitamins.  He finally agreed, but only because my insurance would pay for it and he could prescribe synthetic D2.  My level was six.  That's severely deficient.  He didn't bother with checking for other deficiencies.  I broke a leg, osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency.  That's lame.  I developed pellagra.  That's "slightly dead."  Then there was the BeriBeri episode with bouts of tachycardia. That's "almost dead." And from complications of vitamin A deficiency, I'm legally blind.  All within three years.  Yeah, sure, vitamins aren't so important.  Just ignore them, they'll go away.  Please rethink putting nutritional deficiencies on the back burner. Hope this helps. 😸
