A Gluten-free ALDI Shopping Experience

Before going gluten-free, ALDI was a great place to pick up some cheap products.  Then, we had to go gluten-free. As much as I loved ALDI's prices, ninety percent of their products were now off-limits.  Then, they experimented with some gluten-free products. To show my support (in the hopes that they would continue to market the products), I went out and stocked up.  After that, I didn't see the gluten-free products, so I didn't go out of my way to get to ALDI.  However, I recently heard that they were selling gluten-free products and were planning on having them be in stock regularly.

Wolfies is a Gluten-Free Dream Come True

In the heart of Endicott is a sweet little ice cream shop called Wolfies.  I had heard from a friend that they have gluten-free cones, so I decided to check it out!  Sure enough, they have a gluten-free cone option.  When I ordered, I looked to see how the server handled the cone.  I went several times and noticed that all of the servers were careful to wrap the cone in a napkin.  My son and I did not have any issues at all.

Dunkin Donuts Fails to Deliver

I've adjusted to being gluten-free pretty well and don't miss too many food items anymore. There are so many substitutes out there now...or I've just learned to do without.  Being gluten-free has certainly limited my donut options, though.  Dunkin Donuts, in my opinion, has some really good donuts--none of which I can actually eat anymore.  Last year I was thrilled when I read that Dunkin Donuts was testing gluten-free blueberry muffins and gluten-free cinnamon sugar donuts.

Yes to Carrots Gluten-Free List

While there apparently is some debate over whether or not those with a gluten issue should avoid beauty products that contain gluten, I, in fact, am convinced that I need to avoid them.  First of all, it doesn't make any logical sense to use a lip product with gluten in it:  I chew my lips!  Also, to use a hand lotion with gluten in it, in my opinion, seems to be asking for a problem.

Food and Fire in Johnson City, NY: A MUST GO!

Food and Fire in Johnson City is a great restaurant for anyone who cannot have gluten but still appreciates good food!  I went there tonight and was very impressed with...everything!  Our server was knowledgeable concerning gluten and also cross contamination issues. Not only was she able to tell me the gluten-free information, but she also knew it off the top of her head and didn't need to go check somewhere else while everyone in our party waited on me and my food issues (because, yes, that has happened to me in restaurants before...).

A Restaurant Experience: Friendly's

I haven't always been real daring when it comes to trying out new places to eat. With my gluten issues, it can be...kind of scary.  I would say that finally, after several years of eating gluten-free, I now feel more confident to try new places.  So, tonight, for the first time in about four years, I stepped foot inside a Friendly's.
