They have mainstream gluten free cookies!!!!!! Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Chocolate chip. Did anyone know this?? Usually when a big company like that goes gluten free, I hear about it from this board but unless I completely missed it, I stood in the store with my jaw dropped. Naturally I bought them (despite the obvious cc risks that I know people will bring up), sadly...the Betty Crocker ones are better but its still awesome to know they're there!

I just looked on their online store and didn't see any gluten free cookies. I called and they said that they didn't have gluten free anything?!

Is the name Tastycake? The company out of PA that sells the snackcakes?

Thanks! :)

Wow! Those look good. Are they soft and chewy or more crispy? I can't believe that the rep. on the phone was not aware that her company made these. Jeez!

Where did you find them?

Maybe it is a test marketing ? The only thing I can find online (looked everywhere) is a pdf that is on google documents which is a Business Plus Presentation of Tastykake New Product Launch. It's an outline with no date on it. But the product is for gluten free tastykakes.

That's strange they'd try it with gluten-free cookies, when the most famous Tastykake regular items are the krimpets (a rectangular shaped frosted cupcake) and kandy cakes, which are small spongecakes "enrobed" in chocolate frosting.

If they could actually do a gluten-free krimpet people would go nuts. The facebook page was funny, they are going to sell regular tastykakes at baseball games again this year and handle the frosting issue by keeping them in coolers at the ballpark. There is a promo to win Phillies tickets for opening day. http://www.facebook.com/Tastykake

The uwishunu site for Philladelphia actually has a tastykake tag. http://www.uwishunu.com/tag/tastykake/

Astonishing. I hope they can stay in business, they're having money issues. I would kill for a gluten-free Tastykake lemon pie.

I got them in a Weis Markets in PA. They're softish...and honestly, not that great but I just was astonished that I didn't hear about it on this board before I saw it in the stores! I feel like where I was in PA wouldn't have been a very successful test market but maybe they're trying it out within a certain distance from Philly? I agree, it's strange to start it out with cookies...I'd love a krimpet!!!

One of my friends sent me an mms today with a pic of these at Shoprite in Neptune, NJ. I can't wait to get there to try them out!! Any word on if they are made in a separate facility or if they at least batch test them?

I don't know what is more annoying here, that the Tastykake website does not have them (the gluten-free chocolate chip cookies) obviously on the links to their homepage, or that once you do find them, they still don't list the ingredients.

So I've read a lot of reviews, and the dingy reviewers mostly are not saying what the ingredients are, either. I mean, come on, folks, why do you think people buy this stuff.

This person finally mentions the ingredients but does not provide a full list. 6/27/11 Gluten Free Dairy Free NJ

Tastykake Gluten Free Choc Chip Cookies New Product Review

http://glutenfreedairyfreenj.blogspot.com/2011/06/tastykake-gluten-free-chocolate-chip.html

Good news is that they are supposedly dairy free.... bad news is that they have soy flour. <_< Hello.. what is one of the more common problems for celiacs and gluten intolerants.... somebody was not thinking on this one.

A couple of things did stand out from the package though: 1) there is no

    • REALLY odd call out here, I am attending a anime convention called A-Fest in Dallas come August, I need someone to split the room with it who is gluten-free. I take extra precautions, I COOK all the food, bring only CERTIFIED foods into the room, The room will be Gluten Free, Corn Free, Dairy Free, Peanut Free. I am trying to find someone to split the room cost with, that would be safe to be around I CAN NOT AFFORD to get sick at one of these things, it is one of my few joys left in life and get very paranoid around them. So I need someone who is also gluten-free to make sure the room stays safe (YES I have done with with a non celiac with the rules down and well stuff happens so not chancing it). Room split is food coverage comes to $400 if it is just two people.  4 day convention, I will arrange a meal plan around your diet as long as it is free of my allergens. I will also provide various snacks, baked goods, and even stuff to take home with you.   https://animefest.org/ ^Convention info.
    • Hi Jennifer, This thread might have some information that would help you.   Your doctors are pretty lame IMHO.  Perhaps you can find a celiac group in your area that has local meetings for support.  They might also suggest a different doctor who knows how to treat celiac patients.  
    • All the above posts are full of good advice. What I'd like to add is, if you have coeliac disease and continue to eat gluten, you run the risk of other autoimmune diseases in the future as well as osteoporosis, malnutrition and even cancer, so even if you had no symptoms at the beginning, and may also not have any symptoms if you eat gluten (not all coeliacs do), the damage is still being done to your gut and the rest of your body, so please be aware of this.
    • You could possibly try calling the places in Texas and Chicago to see if they can refer you somewhere that does accept your insurance. Oh good luck to you!
    • Hi Jennifer and welcome CyclingLady has given you some good advice above. You want certainty and that's entirely understandable. Go back to your doctors and explain that you need to know a little more and hopefully they will engage positively with you. If they don't, then do pursue a second opinion.  I just wanted to address your last paragraph quoted above. The problem with celiac, or in my case non celiac gluten sensitivity, is that it presents or doesn't present in so many different ways. It can do hidden damage which may take many years to become apparent. It can impact in ways which are incredibly difficult to recognise or isolate.  I am 'lucky' in that the way that gluten impacts on me is far worse than any mental or social isolation brought upon by the diet, so motivation is easy for me, even without the certainty of a celiac diagnosis, there really is no alternative, I don't think I'd last long on a gluten diet now. But I can well understand how difficult it may be to stay honest on the diet if you don't have any symptoms to deal with. The diet can be isolating, there does become a distance between you and 'normal' people. Who would want to deal with all that if they didn't have to? If you aren't satisfied with your doctors  responses and choose to go back onto gluten I suggest you find another doctor and go back into the diagnostic process and properly exclude celiac, including a scope. Otherwise you could be taking a big risk with yr long term health. You may find that this process supplies you with an answer as if your diagnosis was correct your response to the reintroduction of gluten may surprise you, or not of course! best of luck!
