Thanks for giving us the heads up. My gluten and corn issues make this place a land mine for me , I have not eaten in there in years. This is great info for others to know for it was at one time one of a few potential options (with the burrito bowl option ) in the fast food world someone could watch them make your food upfront.
Thank you for your support! My son seemed better this morning (eyes didn't have the glazed over, opiate look from gluten) and he and I were able to talk about yesterday and what happened. I do believe it was the sour cream flavor on the chips that led to this. He has also shown intolerance to potatoes and nightshades so we stay away from those. And, like most 10 year olds, I asked him why he ate the chips when he knows he should avoid those. He shrugged. I do think talking through strategies is good. We were able to talk through what might be helpful if this situation arises again.
This is my 11 yo daughter's reaction to eating gluten. I can't confirm she has celiac because she gets so crazy trying to feed it to her long enough to get the testing done and is physiciallt miserable. Other reactions are inconsistent (stomach upset, rash). But she always flips out. It's like she's a different person. The only thing we can think to do is continually discuss it when she's not glutened and overall strengthen her coping skills so she can pull from that when fed gluten.
