Dunkin' Donuts to offer gluten-free donuts!!!!

Fantastic news from Dunkin' Donuts.

According to Business Week, the restaurant chain is going to be selling gluten-free cinnamon donuts and blueberry muffins in all its stores later this year.

I knew Dunkin' was test-marketing gluten-free donuts in South Florida and was hoping to try them on my next visit there. But this is even better.

I really wasn't eating all that many donuts before being diagnosed with celiac but when someone tells you you can't have something, you just crave them even more. So I want my Dunkin' donut.

Gluten-free corn dogs surprisingly good

I've never been a fan of corn dogs. Not that I have anything against them, just that I've never looked at a corn dog and said "I've got to have one." Wherever they sold corn dogs, there always seemed to be something else I'd rather have.

But put the words "gluten-free" in front of something and suddenly, I've got to try it. So when I was looking at the Applegate Farms products in Publix and saw gluten-free corn dogs, well....

I've had several other Applegate Farms products that I really like, such as chicken fingers and chicken tenders (I eat a lot of their chicken tenders), so naturally I had to give these corn dogs a try.

The verdict -- they were surprisingly good. I really didn't expect to enjoy them as much as I did.

I wish I could tell you how they compare with other corn dogs, but I really can't remember ever having one. I'm sure I have somewhere, sometime. But like I said, I just don't think about corn dogs normally, so I can't remember.

But I can see myself buying these again.

Canyon Bakehouse buns on sale at Native Sun

My favorite gluten-free hamburger buns are on sale this month at Native Sun.

The buns are made by Canyon Bakehouse, but I haven't bought them in a long, long time because of the price. Finally, Native Sun put them on sale again for $4.65 for a package of 4. That's about the equivalent of a package of Udi's buns at Publix, which I've been buying instead. The normal price for Canyon Bakehouse is $6.60.

Really, if you haven't tried them before and you can get to Native Sun, try them now.

I got to meet the owners of Canyon Bakehouse a while back at a gluten-free conference and told them how much I liked the product. I was hoping they would offer me some freebies, but no such luck. Oh well.

Actually, I should say these are my favorite buns that you can buy retail. I really like the gluten-free buns available at Epik Burger, but they get them from their food service company and I don't think they are available retail.
