No...not me. But, I asked to read the label of the oil it's popped in and did not see an issue. You could inquire the same. When I order the medium with butter, I don't feel so well after.....but it sure is good goin' down. ;) (probably not gluten related)

I used to work for National Amusements theaters. Their stuff is fine on the gluten, but I wouldn't eat the buttery topping if you have a soy problem...leave it plain.

I have done ok with it. We never get the "butter flavored topping". I know with any popcorn that I can't eat too much. Not a gluten thing. Not sure what. Maybe the hulls are scratchy.

Ingredient-wise, the popcorn should be fine - we don't let Chris have it because of cross contamination issues. If someone would grab a soft pretzel and then go in to get popcorn, then the whole thing is now contaminated with gluten. We just pop and take our own and the theaters have always been very understanding.

I'm not claiming that I can absolutely guarantee that every single theater popcorn is gluten-free, but in 10 years I've yet to find one that isn't. And that includes the buttery type topping.

    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
    • ....post is 12 years old, please check the dates, On a side note to this topic, I had no gluten issues with tide but it caused itching for other reasons I went with Rockin Green and Mollys Suds for a natural detergent years ago. You get like 70-90loads from a bag try, Amazon, Luckyvitamin, or Thrive for them.
    • Really interesting point Kareng.  In fact, my ttg went up this autumn (November), depressingly, and I saw a nutritionalist earlier this month and she doesn't want to retest til March.  She felt it was too soon for those figures, too.
