Chick-fil-A-sweet-potato-fries

Crunchy on the outside! Creamy on the inside!

Back in May Chick-fil-A added sweet potato waffle fries to their menu. The sweet potato fries are still in development, so they are just gathering feedback at this time, which also means they are only available in select locations.

Unfortunately, they were not available anywhere in Atlanta, but you can get them until August 31st at Chick-fil-A in Athens, GA.

Chick-fil-A is a great place to get fast food if you are on the gluten-free diet because Read More »

Jenny Manseau Gluten Free Works

I love Panera Bread and that we have one not too far from us! Even if we forget that it is there half the time, it is nice when we remember it.  Gluten free panera breadBryan loves their bread and their creamy tomato soup and I truly miss their bread but love their salads and their creamy tomato soup also.  We went to lunch there last week, and like I always do before going somewhere to eat (even if we’ve been there a million times) I went Read More »

Applebee’s Offering Gluten-free Options


Gluten-free residents can add another restaurant to the growing list that will accommodate their needs – Applebee’s.  Applebee’s joins a host of many other restaurants that are now offering a list of menu items that don’t contain gluten.  As noted, this list is subject to change, so make sure to check back frequently.  

As with any restaurant, there is always a risk of cross-contamination.  To help minimize the risk, ask to speak with the manager on duty.  Be sure to ask how the menu item is prepared and if it is cooked on surfaces or Read More »

Gluten-free Round Up: Product and Restaurant News of the Week

The world of gluten-free is just bursting with news this month.  It almost seems like there is more going on this month than the last quarter of 2010.  Great new for the gluten-free community, but it definitely makes it harder to keep up with the onslaught of new information.

Listed below is the gluten-free news this Examiner has heard about this past week.

  • Breads from Anna is getting ready to launch two new gluten-free mixes: Black Bean Brownie and Pizza Crust.  More details can be found here.  

 

  • Kikkoman’s new gluten-free soy sauce is a Tamari-style soy sauce brewed with rice instead of wheat. Take note, though, that the sodium content (960 mg per one-tablespoon serving) is high compared with reduced-sodium, gluten-free soy sauces produced bySan-JLa Choy and Kari-Out.  Thanks for Gluten Free Philly for the information.

Dip into some gluten-free delights at The Melting Pot

I’ll admit it – sometimes all I want to have for dinner is some fruit, cheese, and if I’m feeling extra adventurous, chocolate.  But fresh fruit dipped in chocolate and other savory items dipped in cheese?  Now you’re talking.

The Melting Pot is a delightful fondue restaurant that offers you all the cheese and chocolate until your heart’s content (they offer other yummy items too).  And now they have a special gluten-free menu, so you don’t have to worry about cross-contamination.

In a cheesy mood?  The Spinach Artichoke or Wisconsin Trio (request that the fondue be made with cornstarch) are must-haves.  The vegetables and apple slices provided are perfect dipping accompaniments. Read More »

Wendy’s Updates Gluten-free Menu Again (Updated 6/24/2014)

 

Back in February I wrote an article on Wendy’s updated gluten-free menu.  I wrote the article mainly because they removed a lot of the salads that had previously been listed as gluten-free.  The menu has been updated again.  Fast food restaurants tend to change offerings based on the season, so I applaud Wendy’s for keeping us informed.

The current gluten-free menu for Wendy’s can be viewed here.  The Baja Salad has been added to the gluten-free list.  This salad contains much of the same ingredients that the Southwest Taco Salad did or does.  While the gluten-free menu still lists the Southwest Taco Salad, the regular online menu does not.
