As we informed you last June, Dunkin Donuts introduced two gluten-free options to their menu: a cinnamon sugar donut and a blueberry muffin. These products were tested mainly in Boston and Miami, and Dunkin Donuts claimed they would be available nationwide by the end of 2013. We all rejoiced.
We loved this news not just for the convenience of being able to pick up a pastry with our daily coffee runs, but because Dunkin Donuts took extra precautions to make sure these products were safe for celiacs, producing them at a separate facility and individually packaging them.
Word of mouth told us that these items were selling fast, and I had faith that their recipes and options would only improve. Sadly, the party’s over. Dunkin Donuts just (very quietly) pulled their gluten-free products and trashed their plans for nationwide release.
Learning to navigate the gluten-free aisle at your local grocery can be difficult, and the pasta section can be especially frustrating. Corn noodles? Quinoa? Brown rice? While the ever rising selection of gluten-free items is exciting, the number of options can often times be overwhelming.
You can either do what I did and try out each type until you figure out what’s what (not recommended!), or you can check out the guide below.
Not only will we give you a rundown of the types of gluten-free pasta out there but we’ll also clue you in regarding some of the most loved brands. Bon Appetit!
You think you’ve learned the ropes. You know when to check ingredients, you know when something is safe, you know when to be extra careful. At least that’s what you think, until you finish a bottle of FRUIT JUICE and realize that it has oat flour and barley malt listed in the ingredients. Yes, GoodBelly Probiotic Drinks are chock full of gluten.
Good Belly, a probiotic fruit drink containing live and active probiotics, is dairy-free, soy-free, certified organic, and 100% vegan.
Their website ironically states that this is “just right for those of you who experience digestive upset from common food sensitivities.”
No, Good Belly, it is not just right. It’s just the opposite for those of us with celiac disease...

With the big game coming up tomorrow, let’s be frank. While watching football is everyone’s favorite pastime and going to parties is fun and all, what we all really like to do on Super Bowl Sunday is stuff our faces until it’s hard to move.
