|Saltines. Not wheat-free.|
A colleague of mine told me about some soups that were labeled wheat-free when he was ordering lunch yesterday, so I ordered one. It's pretty tasty, and hopefully I'll have no ill effects from it. I'm a little skeptical, as it arrived with two packs of Saltines on top.
At least they're trying. :)
(When I was a kid I would eat saltines by the sleeve, btw.)
P.S. Well, the Saltines should have indicated that something was wrong. As I was eating the soup (tomato, btw), I wondered what they used as a thickener to get the nice consistency. Then I noticed I was getting a massive head rush, the first sign that I'm eating wheat. Damn it. Not much of a subsequent reaction, just mild cramping.
The downside of the growing popularity of gluten-free is the fact that restaurants, while trying to be helpful, don't really understand what it means. But they're learning.
