When I get excited, I dance. It’s a ridiculous dance, and ok it’s not just when I am excited. I ridiculous dance all of the time. There’s music in my head that just needs to be danced to. But in addition to always, I dance when I am excited.
Chuck E Cheese’s is testing gluten free pizza options. BUT they’re being way awesome about it. (Unlike Domino’s, who was seemed to piss off a huge portion of Celiac folks. Lame-os.) According to the article:
To avoid cross contamination or accidental exposure to gluten ingredients in Chuck E. Cheese’s kitchens, the personal cheese pizza, manufactured by USDA/FDA-approved, gluten-free facility Conte’s Pasta, will arrive to stores in frozen, pre-sealed packaging. The bake-in-bag pizza will remain sealed while cooked and delivered and until opened and served with a personal pizza cutter at families’ tables by the adult in charge.
Say what? That is rockin’. Being diagnosed with Celiac disease at 24 was hard enough, yo. Can you imagine being a kid? Not understanding why you can’t eat what your friends are having. Or why you can’t go to their birthday parties? Ugh. It breaks my heart. It’s hard enough wanting to eat what my coworkers are having and I wear big girl panties. The idea of 10 year old Melissa crying at a birthday party because she doesn’t understand why pizza makes her sick but not the other kids – man, that sucks. So THIS? This is awesomeness. This announcement makes me so happy I want to fly to Minnesota to buy a gluten free pizza from the test bed just to vote with my dollars that I think this is a great idea. I really hope more companies follow suit – because let me tell you – I don’t even want kids, but this makes me want to have them just to have birthday parties at Chuck E Cheese’s. And if I end up having kids, I will have their birthday party every year at Chuck E Cheese’s if they’re the only ones that are offering something like this. Even when they’re 18. I love this idea that much.
