There is only one Girl Scout cookie, and her name is Samoa.

At her right hand sits Thin Mint.

I was so farking happy this year when I saw Samoas on the menu, instead of that "caramel delites" bullshiat.

I'd like to try that.

And speaking of McDonald's when did they get rid of their hot mustard dipping sauce?  The young lady at the counter looked at me like I was insane when I was there today.  I had a craving for McNuggets and hot mustard sauce for some odd reason.  At least their sweet chili sauce was good.

Don't you love the times of year when everyone starts asking you to buy their crotch fruit's cookies/other various items?

The five members of my family with celiac/NCGS were excited about this, until they found out that it's the other supplier of GS cookies that's making them, not the supplier to our areas.

I guess I'm in the minority here, but my favorite has always been the shortbread ones. Gimme a sleeve of those with a big tall glass of milk and I'm all good. Sure the others are good, but good shortbread cookies are becoming harder to find in our 'cover everything in chocolate' world...

Those will go great with gluten-free coffee or gluten-free milk. I'll take the gluten-free truck over to the gluten-free grocery store, where the gluten-free Girl Scouts often sell them in the gluten-free foyer and by a few gluten-free packages to keep in my gluten-free cupboards for a rainy gluten-free day.

Just where the hell did all these people with celiac disease come from anyway?  I don't recall anyone having this issue prior to the last 5 years or so.

Anyone over 20-30 recall a single person that had this problem while we were growing up?

Like 99% of the people doing gluten free are doing it as a fad diet and not because they have been diagnosed with celiac.

It's still about 1% of people with celiac. Another 3-4% self-report some sort of discomfort after ingesting wheat products, but it isn't celiac -- however, thanks to marketing and naturopath bullshiat, about 30% of adults now say they want to "cut back" on gluten, as if it's a cumulative health risk like fats or cholesterol.

Well, if you cut wheat products out of your diet, and don't replace them with sugary substitues, you're looking pretty low-carb.

My sulfite sensitivity pushed me to get commercial bread out of my life, so no McDonalds or golden raisens or orange dried apricots. I grew up unable to breathe through my nose, which lead to some incidents worthy of a psychiartist couch. I moved out, tried the Atkins diet, and discovered breathing through my nose. A few incidents involving wine and a bag of Chex Mix full of sulfited dried fruit later I knew where my problem was.

I'm not anti-gluten, but just as picky.

More gluten awesomeness for me.

We will have hit peak gluten free once I see gluten free water for sale.  I've seen gluten free flavored water for sale, but not straight up, regular old water.

It's not actually ice cream, but frozen dairy dessert, and it is in the frozen dessert section of your supermarket.

Part of the debate is whether identification wasn't previously as good (socially classified as "sickly child") or whether there's a marked uptick as a result of pumping hundreds of new chemicals into our air/water/soil over the last 60 years.

The debate ended when they found the genetic cause of celiac and developed a genetic test for it. 1% of people carry the genes that cause it. It's not environmental. Any remaining debate concerns the self-reported "gluten sensitivity" (celiac is an autoimmune disorder).  

There's some indication that the "sensitivity" is real, as in double-blind studies some people reporting it have felt better when gluten was removed from their diets, but most people "cutting back" on gluten are misinformed or hypochondriacal.

No. Never heard of the problem until recently. I want to try a gluten-only diet for 30 days. Nothing but gluten. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. Gluten all the way. I'll make a documentary and profit. But first I have to consult Wikipedia to find out what the hell gluten is.

As of last week when I got nuggets, it was still in existence. It better not go away, or no more McNuggets for me.
