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.

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
    • DH wasn't linked to celiacs until 1967 from my research...
