Word on the Street

I am a little behind on my blog reading, but I try to play catch up when I can.  I pick up pieces of information through my reading and then share the good (or bad) stuff with you guys.  Over the past couple of weeks I have heard quite a few bits of information, so I am going to consolidate them all into one post.

P.F. Chang’s added a new dish to their Summer Menu that also happens to be on the gluten-free menu.  GF Summer Vegetable Quinoa “Fried Rice” sounds fantastic!  The dish is made of wok-toasted quinoa with sunburst squash, mango, tomatoes and snow peas, topped with a sunny-side egg.  There also a couple of new dishes added back in March 2013 and a new-ish dessert that I haven’t noticed on the menu before.  In addition to the infamous delectable Chocolate Dome, there is also a GF Chocolate Torte Sweet Treat.  Sounds like an outing to P.F. Chang’s is in order!

Cheesecake Factory has offered gluten-free options in the past, but after I had two bad experiences a couple of years back, I haven’t gone back.  Now it is rumored that Cheesecake Factory will be offering a gluten-free menu with over 70 items to choose from in the near future.  If this does come to fruition, I hope that they do it right, educating staff on procedures to keep cross-contamination to a minimum. 

King’s Island has many gluten-free options available that are sure to please kids and adults alike! 

Dunkin’ Donuts is taking their gluten-free donut and blueberry muffins nationwide!  These products are manufactured in a gluten-free facility and are certified gluten-free.  It doesn’t get much safer than that when it comes to avoiding cross-contamination.  Are these products junk food?  Absolutely.  Am I recommending you eat them on a regular basis?  Absolutely not.  It is great to have yet another option available. 

Last, but not least, I am bumming that I can’t find a few of my new favorite gluten-free foods locally.  I think we have been spoiled in the past with so many different local stores offering amazing gluten-free product selections.  When I can’t find a new-ish product that I am looking for, it is hard not to get frustrated.  Some of those products I am on the local hunt for include:

Sure I could order these products online, but I prefer to avoid paying a shipping cost when possible. Are there gluten-free products you have been on the hunt for and can’t find? Please let me know and I will do what I can to help you try to locate them.
