:huh: Hi. My son and husband were just diagnosed with Celiac. My son is very picky. I hear Kinnikinik bread products taste pretty good and I was wondering if someone could tell me where I might be able to buy them either on-line or somewhere in PA. I've been searching for hours and I can't find anything. I would greatly appreciate any feedback. Thanks so much!

I recommend the white rice tapioca bread, the chocolate dipped and glazed donuts *we add chocolate frosting to the glazed, the chocolate chip muffins are great, but a little too small, the plain bagels are great. Some stuff is pricey, but worth it. Some stuff is so filling that all you need is a half of the product to be full. Save what you don't finish. The pizza crusts are great too.

If you are going to put on frosting, make sure it is Duncan Hines, not Betty Crocker. Betty Crocker has wheat in it......

Also, when I moved out of Toronto into the burbs in January, I couldn't find gluten free foods anywhere here. I went to the manager at the local A&P, and explained that I was looking for gluten free food, he said they didn't have any. Then, he asked if I could possibly bring in a wrapper of the bread that I use and he can contact the company to get some products in. I brought it in to him, and lo and behold, 2 weeks later, he had a whole 4 ft. gluten free section (about 5 shelves high) with all Kinnikinnick items in the frozen section. This guy is a sweetheart!!!

A month later, I happened to see him while shopping, and he stated that he couldn't believe how quickly the items are flying off the shelves. I then printed him off the article from this site about retailers having to realize the rapid increase in diagnosis of celiac disease and catch up and start stocking gluten-free items. He actually thanked me for the info I gave him and for giving him a suggestion to better serve his customers. I then thanked him for bending over backwards and helping me access my gluten free food.

Maybe try this at your local supermarket. Even print off that article and bring it in to them. You never know until you try......

Take care,

Karen

Pillsbury has some good frosting that is gluten free to but avoid Betty Crocker. I love the Kinnikinnick chocolate glazed donuts. We ordered like 2 dozen and they were gone within a week :lol:

Cool. I like the sound of that. I, got my grocery store to start carrying Annie's gluten-free mac and cheese. But I feel kind of dumb now for doing it, as I don't buy it... I've found I like just buying the tinkyada elbow's and buying Kraft's Mac and Cheese for just the cheese. It actually ends up being cheaper...

Does Kinnikinnick make any hot dog buns? Does *anyone* make any hot dog buns or do we just have to wrap bread around the dog? For some reason I woke up in the middle of the night worried about this :unsure: ....will I ever have a normal hot dog again?

wow i am very surprised that someone did not like the english muffins. i think you had to have gotten a weird batch because the english muffins are out of this world!!! i discovered them recently and have gone through 4 bags in a week. B) i can not stop eating them. it is the first bread i have had in a year that actually tastes like bread. they are light, fluffy and moist like bread should be. i also make little pizza's of them and its great!!

Maya,

Are you keeping your english muffins frozen? They need to stay frozen until you use them. Then you need to microwave them for about 20 seconds, slice them and toast them. They are PERFECT that way. If you let it thaw on the counter it might come out dry. They also need to be toasted, just like regular english muffins.

In fact most of Kinnikinnicks products need to stay frozen and taste better if you microwave slightly before use. It even says that on the wrappers. "While not necessary, microwaving or toasting improvs taste and texture".

A friend of mine said that she was having a problem with the Kinnikinnick pizza crust being dry. It turns out she was letting it thaw on the counter, and baking the pizza. I microwave each crust a full minute! Then put the toppings on and bake. Needless to say, her daughter loves the pizza at my house and it is the same crust!

God bless,

Mariann

that might have been it... they were in a cooler (we brought them to a picnic) but they had thawed in the cooler and I didn't heat them or toast them.... I will try one tomorrow morning with some jelly or my favorite, Nutella....

Thanks!

Hi Maya,

I keep mine in the fridge because usually a package doesn't last long enough to go bad.

I take it out, put it in the microwave for 16 seconds, take it out, let it cool for about 2 minutes, then slice it to put it in the toaster. Voila! Perfect english muffin!

I had a very bad experience with "english muffins" a year ago. I'm reclutant to try them again. I may, though, have to give these Kinnikinnick's a try. :ph34r::ph34r:

Because of all the money I've wasted, I was hesitant to give any new products a try, but I LOVE everything I have bought from Kinnikinnik recently! :D:PB)

Reading others suggestions, I tried the plain bagels, white rice tapioca bread, and pizza crusts...Boy, are they yummy! :)

I also hear you guys talking about the chocolate donuts and english muffins. I was going to order the donuts last time, but they had two kinds and I wasn't sure which chocolate kind is the best...any suggestions?

I made grill cheese sandwiches for the first time since going gluten-free with my new kinnik bread...WOW...they were good!

Please let me know if any of their other products are really good or which donuts or muffins to try first. I'm open for suggestions! B)

The Glazed Chocolate donuts are a chocolate cake donut with a light glaze on them (we couldn't even tell they were glazed!). They were okay, not a favorite here at my house.

The Chocolate Dipped donuts are a yellow cake donut dipped in a chocloate frosting glaze. They are one of our favorites here. We also like the Cinnamon donuts.

HI

I was not officially diagnosed with Celiac and my blood tests came back negative for a Wheat allergy, however in the last 4 days I have been eating gluten/wheat free and can't believe how different I feel! I can actually concentrate on things now and although my stomach is still adjusting and will take a while to "heal", I am hoping this is the answer to my issues! I am also doing acupuncture for stomach problems and she recommended I be wheat/gluten free as well.

Anywho, the reason I am writing it to find out if any of you have any suggestions on breads...I have seen the above posts and cant tell if they have wheat from the website...Also on eating out etc....I have been doing a lot of research but the more advice the better. I LOVE LOVE vietnamese food and their soups are made with rice noodles BUT I have been reading that even chicken broth has wheat, yeast etc...and add a language barrier on top of that, I don't know what to do..??

Can anyone help??

THANK U!! :P

I believe all of Kinnickinnick stuff is gluten free, which means it must be wheat free.

My husband loves the cheese tapioca rice bread, the chocolate glazed donuts, and the k-toos cookies (like oreos). I also keep the graham cracker crumbs and the chocolate cookie crumbs on hand for making pies and cheesecakes. They are just as good as glutenous ones!

    • This - I agree with all of this. I have also twigged that if oats are a problem then certified processed gluten free food is out. And I got really sick from drywall. It's such a relief to hear this as there was a time when I was feeling like an alien for thinking these things. Well I agree 99.9%. I had a skin problem, possibly DH, which got better when I gave up gluten, improved further when I gave up processed foods but it wasn't until I stopped eating dry beans that I stopped getting any flares. I am also sensitive to egg though (although that does something different to my skin) so I'm a bit a skin-reactive person. Could be worth cutting it out just to see if that helps?
    • Hi Celiac4762, The carbs I eat are sweet potato, parsnip and squash plus loads of fruit. With rice I'm ok if it's from a reputable source. Once I get glutened I steer clear of it for a month to give myself an extra break and then go back to it in smallish quantities. I have carbs once a day rather than every meal to save time. I can hear in your tone this tired, fed up tone that I recognise so well from when I get glutened. I know what it's like to dream of living in a far away gluten free bubble. I felt like that but after a couple of months (which were a hard adjustment) I got to a stage of knowing what I needed to do. Your medical background will help you methodically work out what you need to cut out and what is safe and you will get there. Stick with college. Don't let this crappy stage take that away.   The thing that saved me though over everything was finding this article: https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-40
    • Thanks to both of you. Ok, so I was feeling not great and went grain free for 5 weeks. Then slowly started to introduce grains. All seemed ok, then I had an issue after 3 weeks, with blood in my stool. Celiac wasn't on my radar. In fact, rice and oats are what seem to bother me most. But the Dr added on the celiac test and it was indeterminate. So I was sent for endoscopy and colonoscopy. I consumed gluten for just over two weeks, then went back to my grain free, dairy free diet. I saw my Dr this am and she said my bowels were healthy, that the Dr had taken 'several' samples and that all is well on both ends.  (No celiac, but also not H Pylori, crohn's, etc). She is running all kinds of other bloodwork, because I am still feeling terrible, and obviously the assumption I had made was that it was celiac. I'm going to stay off gluten for now, in hopes that I'll start to feel better. My GI symptoms are worse this week than they have been in ages...so something is up, but apparently I'm healthy??! I am pretty sure my Dr. would not refer me to another GI. She's not the best, but it's very hard to find another Dr. here, especially if you already have a Dr. (Canada) I am going to ask her for a copy of the report though, as well as the rest of the bloodwork she's sending me for. 
    • This is exactly what I'm wondering also.
    • I'm confused. You don't have celiac? Have you had a blood test or biopsy? Have you been diagnosed with DH?  What were you diagnosed with 9 years ago? If it was celiac or DH why have you only been gluten-free for 6 months? We need a better picture of what's going on here to help you more successfully.
