        1. yes. many Celiac patients can be harmed by even trace gluten in cosmetic/lotion/shampoo products through cutaneous absorption.

  1. Years hence, people who were in their early 20s in 2014 will be nostalgically lamenting how, when they felt lazy about dinner, they nuked something buffalo-ranch flavored for the main course, followed by something birthday-cake-flavored for dessert. A few snobbish hold-outs will say: “No, the uber-dessert was WATERMELON-flavored.”

    Do we have birthday-cake-flavored yogurt yet? If not, why not?

    1. Yoplait did a birthday cake yogurt under the splitz line. The splitz line is discontinued. I tried it not that great.

      1. After reading the ingredients, I’m not convinced that Yoplait is yoghurt.

        But someone should make a line of small packages of junky add-ons for yoghurt, sold separately and easily carried. Then people could buy real yoghurt when away from home and make it gloriously junky in an instant with no fuss. Birthday cake sprinkles would be a good place to start, since that’s showing up in everything. Could be used for plain vanilla ice cream also.

  2. Chex is really pushing the gluten-free marketing tool hard.

    It’s been gluten-free since before I was born. I even knew that when I was a kid, and I didn’t/don’t have celiac disease.
