Well, I couldn’t stop fantasizing about my gluten free chicken tenders from the Electric Umbrella at EPCOT. As in, I literally found myself daydreaming and drooling; I want them and I want them now. Too bad I’m a good 1,000+ miles from there. Since I was in a bit of a panic state while perusing the gluten free food binder at the time, I couldn’t recall the brand but decided to see if I couldn’t figure it out in some way. Any way.
It’s sad to admit but I ran an absurd number of searches trying to figure out who made these specific chicken tenders, and looking back, I’m not sure how I didn’t find it. (I’m questioning whether or not I did read that they were Allergy Free but didn’t realize it was a brand name?) After I got slightly annoyed, I decided to shoot an e-mail to the Special Diets Department at Disney World telling them about my predicament. They happily replied, informing me that my obsession was with AllergyFree Foods brand chicken tenderloins. Yay!
I look them up and click the link. Suspended page. Are you kidding me!?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I search a bit more, but with such a generic brand name, the results are jumbled. I see a few places I can order from online, but I have a no-shipping-frozen-foods policy. I was hoping to locate them in a store. I’ll keep my eyes peeled. Never know? Or maybe they’ll fix the site so I can ask them?
Skip forward to a week after I get my much anticipated Disney response, the day is Saturday, January 11th. I’ve been strolling through my go-to gluten free store, Naturally Soergel’s, with my newly gluten free friend and what do I see while discussing gluten free frozen foods? ALLERGYFREE FOODS CHICKEN TENDERLOINS! That’s right! I was elated! Can’t you tell from the pic above?
Now with these in my possession, I can have my gluten free, delectable Disney dining experience at home too. Until next time, Mickey. There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow, shining at the end of every day…
