Rita's Italian Ice

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to post a reminder for everyone that Rita's is mostly gluten free. Obviously avoid the flavors that sound like they have gluten in them like cookie dough and avoid cones, OREO and Nilla Wafer toppers, and pretzels. Everything that has gluten in it is pretty obvious.

I took Tori there today to get a Misto shake and the girl behind the counter had Celiac!!! Imagine my surprise!!! She assured me that machines aren't shared for things that would have gluten UNLESS there's a flavor available that day that has gluten in it like cookie dough flavor. Anyway, she assured me again that the only things containing gluten are the obvious ones. :)

Eh... Isn't that what men are for??? Just kidding. In all seriousness though, a man that will do that for his woman is a rare find. Hold on to that one.

Yes.

Yes, they are a rare and great find. My husband is famous for dishing me up ice cream on Saturday mornings and bringing it to me in bed. No wonder I married him!

Aww thanks, He is a very good guy. He does a lot for me, and he was there the whole time I was sick and didn't know about the celiac, he was by my side the whole time. He took me to the appointments and the various tests. I feel very lucky.

Don was the same way. He didn't take me to the doctor, but he watched Tori and got up in the middle of the night with her even though he had to be at work in the morning. I think he even ended up cooking some meals because I was so sick. I was pretty much bed ridden before I was diagnosed. When I was in the hospital for that week before they tested for Celiac he took care of Tori and still managed to get in to see me a few times. He's a good man. He's gone out at 11pm to get me chocolate bars (pregnant).

It's nice to know that there are some good men in the world. Thank God we've found ourselves some, huh?

My husband was/is the same way! I'm glad you ladies have wonderful husbands, too :D

I really don't know how I would have gotten through this thing without him.

I love Rita's :P

Well, maybe I was wrong about the good men being few and far between... It seems like lots of us have great guys that support us.

You know, you're right. Most of us have been through a heck of a time too before we got diagnosed. We all deserve "the good ones". :)

Not to be a "wet blanket" but can we rely on a company's info without questionning it at regular intervals that their receipes or methods remained gluten-free from one year to another?

No, we can't. That's why I asked as soon as Rita's opened this year. That's why I posted the reminder, because I checked and nothing had changed since last year.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people ... View the full article
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
