:) Omg, I had to get in on this one-I have a friend who swears fried mac and cheese is the greatest food on the planet. She makes the creamy homemade good kind, though. Any leftovers the next day she fries in a pan with butter. Can you say arteriosclerosis?!! Deep fried must mean they make it thick with cheese and make it into a ball? I would think it would look pretty gross... :blink: Plus, wouldn't the grease in the cheese melt and then with the grease on the outside just make it one huge greaseball-y glob? :o

I have seen deep fried tweenkies too, but the strangest thing I ever heard of was batter-dipped deep fried dill pickles. I am ashamed to admit I think I would like the pickles, lol. I think they would maybe taste like fried green tomatoes.

btw-Susan --Yay! Great to see you!!!

Robbin--I've not seen the stuff personally, I'm told that it is bite-sized "nuggets" of deep fried mac and cheese. All I can think is they must scoop it into the hot fat and fry it up like that :blink:

Leah--Deep fried Coke--really? :lol:

Susie -- how are you?????? Lynnie

Before being diagnosed, we had all that deep-fried garbage at our State Fair. Deep fried snickers bars, twinkies, etc. Never tried them, because it just sounded WRONG!!!!! Also thought that it had to be a Kentucky redneck thing . . . . !!!!! :lol: Didn't know that it would be anywhere else . . . We have a restaurant that sells deep-fried pickle chips . . . called "frickled pickles"

Need to go . . . . moment of silence is getting ready to begin

I had these pre-gluten-free. They're not great, but they're not as bad as they sound. I never was a breaded and fried lover, if I had been, I'd have loved them.

Would I lie to you?

Sad but true.

Now, I do have to admit, I love fried jalapenos! They're not exactly healthy either.

After seeing how he makes it, I probably would have tried it--once upon a time. Sounds like something that would taste good for the first couple of bites, then get sickish.

One of my favorite appitizers used to be Olive Garden deep fried zucchini slices--they dust them with grated cheese--so good!

Then how on earth do you deep fry it? :blink::huh::D:D

Pauliina

Anything that can be battered can be deep fried :rolleyes:

In the UK you can get snickers and mars bar in batter deep fried

Yum-NOT :o:o

Oh I feel queasy :unsure:

It's a southern delicacy down here too - blech! :P

State fair food is evil.

"The challenge is getting people to think of other ways to eat beef," said Betty Hogan, director of new product development for the [National Cattlemen's Beef Association].

Regular cheeseburgers aren't fatty enough!!???

Also there's somebody at the Texas State Fair that makes "Fried Coke"...

I think I saw those things on unwrapped and said "EWW"

And then I saw them in my sister's freezer. What on Earth is wrong with people? :huh:

Oh, and when I got to college (I moved from NY to AR), I ate at the dining halls. I joked to everyone nothern that they fry everything but the coke!

Apparently fried twinkies are quite the thing at A&M. Gross.

And I loooooove fried pickles, sadly. It was the only thing I'd eat at AQ Chicken House!

Hmm...I should try frying some one day. :)

:lol::lol::lol: so true...

Hi everybody! Been keeping a low profile here....

Fried pickles.....I REALLY don't get that one at all. Deep fried anything.....so disgusting. I was in the waiting room of the hospital the other day, and there was a family from Holland there, six people, here for three weeks, we chatted a while and they were shocked at the lack of physical activity here.....said something about the option of staying in their rented RV in a church parking lot, less than a mile away. They were astounded that the social worker gave them a phone number for someone to come pick them up.....they said, doesn't anybody WALK here? (nope, no one does, but it's a very spread-out town.) And they commented very delicately on the obesity they've seen in this country.....they were appalled.

I'm pretty sure they don't deep-fry everything in Europe as we do here.....it is truly evil! :blink:

Leah - fried coke batter......EWWWWWWWW - - positively vomitous!

It would be even more noticeable for someone from Holland. :D Since this is such a flat country, and very densely built, meaning in towns distances are very manageable, everybody bikes to places. People might drive to work, or take a train (also very common) but then they might bike to the shops or to the train station or just for fun in the weekend. Or indeed just walk... it's a national pastime apparently (I'm not Dutch!) to take a train to some remote place and then follow a route description you can buy at a tourist office around a nice countryside route either back to the same station or to another one.

I had a couple of visitors from the US once, they were amazed at the masses and masses of bikes that are parked outside of Amsterdam central station. Instead of a car park building, there's a three story structure to park your bike... :blink::D Here in Utrecht their planning to rebuild the station and one of the important planning decisions to make is for how many bikes can they provide space for. :D

Ok, so it's not my native country, but I think this is something the Dutch well deserve to be proud of. :)

    • I myself also have EOE and Celiac. Before my diagnoses I was getting bread and meat stuck in my esophogus. It wouldn’t pass. It got so bad when I ate a ribeye. It sat in the esophogus for 4 hours. Eventually I was able to vomit it up. It was followed by blood. I then went for a biopsy a month later and was diagnosed. I cut out most of the gluten out of my diet. But I also had to go see an allergy doctor and I have a soy and nut allergy. He explained that the restriction in the esophogus is a delayed reaction to either the soy, gluten, or nuts. So I try to avoid those foods as much as possible. I carry an epi pen with me when I go out to eat. 
    • My biopsy showed Villi damage in the small intestine. It was followed up with blood work. My GI was frustrated with me when I started questioning her. She couldn’t even explain the results to me. She just circled positive and left me hanging. Can anybody explain how my results look? Am I definitely positive?

    • My daughter was diagnosed with celiac in 2014.    She never had a problem with gluten, and she is still a silent celiac.  But she was formally diagnosed with blood test and biopsy.   So, having no "problems" with gluten does not necessarily mean you are not celiac. I too, did not want to accept that my daughter has celiac, and we did a DNA testing, and found that she does carry one of the celiac genes.   So, if you do not want to accept celiac (or just very curious), you can get a dna test to see if you have one of these genes.   I was told that people without one of those celiac genes can not have celiac.
    • Download the app "Find Me gluten-free". It was a life saver when I went on a road trip. You can scan the area you are in for all of the nearest safe restaurants. I only go to the ones labeled "Celiac Friendly" , but that's up to you. Make sure you read the reviews and look at the ratings.  Majority of popular restaurants are not safe. I have found some local restaurants that I enjoy, so ask around in your community. I usually feel safe eating at Chipolte, because I watch them prepare everything right in front of me. If you tell them you have a gluten allergy they will wash their hands, change their gloves, change out the spoons for all of the ingredients you want, and get new bins of cheese. Just make sure you watch the whole time.  I have also eaten at Five Guys several times. Their fries are usually fried in peanut oil and do not have any coating, so if they change their gloves they should be okay. I usually get a hamburger on a lettuce wrap instead of a bun and ask them to keep it separate as they make it. Just like with Chipolte, you can watch everything they do. I always stand right by the counter and watch them make my food to look out for possible cross contamination.  They usually are very careful, but you do have to be very aware and make a decision based on how conscious the workers seem. Mellow Mushrooms also seem to be in many states. All of the locations I have been to have had gluten free options and dedicated kitchen space.  These are some of the restaurants that work for me, but it is different for every person and every circumstance. The most important thing is to be safe. Always ask a lot of questions. I have decided not to eat at places before because of the way a waiter has answered a question about their procedures to reduce cross contamination.  I will also skip out on eating out if the place is busy. No matter how careful they say they will be a kitchen is a busy place. If the restaurant is packed it's better to be safe and not risk it.  I hope you find some places to eat out that work for you, but the truth is a lot of the time you will just need to bring your own food or eat at home. Your health is more important than eating out.  It gets easier and you will learn what is safe and what works. Good luck!
    • Oh, I missed the part about Canadian candy.  Maybe you can buy some American candy on line - then you would know it's safe. Can you buy American candy on Amazon?  I buy everything on Amazon! Can you call the Hershey's in Canada and ask them?  Pick your favorite candy or two and research it?  Just a thought....
