On June 27, I was served a gluten-containing meal at the Mounted Cat at the Burlington, Vermont Hilton. I contacted Hilton on June 30; however, they never responded to my complaints. Today I'm sharing my letter, so others don't get sick at this restaurant. . . .
Today's been one of those days. I know you know them. Those days when everything feels off. It's almost like I woke up wearing the wrong size thoughts and skin. Just an uncomfortable day. That's it. Uncomfortable. . . .
On Saturday, reader Kara M sent me a message. She purchased Big Hawaiian Teriyaki Marinade by "Salamida State Fair Spiedie Sauce". It was labeled gluten-free. However, after reading the label, Kara noticed that the sauce contained wheat-based soy sauce.
Here's a question I ask each year when Easter candy hits the shelves: why are regular Reese's peanut butter cups gluten-free but the seasonal shapes, like eggs, not gluten-free? While I'm sure it has something to do with how the seasonal items are shaped, the whiny part of me just wants to say, "Whhhhhhhy?!?!" Because even though I can count on one hand how many times I eat peanut butter cups during the year, I love those peanut butter-filled eggs.
