Take me out to the ball game!

Ladies and gentlemen, the baseball season is upon us! The Nationals have a new stadium, and in all the chaos of opening night, somehow this piece of information managed to slide past the watchful eye of the Gluties. Apparently, you can purchase a gluten free soft pretzel! I know, right? I’m drooling, too! The Washington Post reported the details today in their review of some of the “healthier” options at the park. The pretzels were rated a “Hit” not an “Error”–

HIT
Gluten-free pretzel $6
Noah’s Pretzels
Section 105

These are named for the owner’s autistic son, and a percentage of the proceeds goes to fight autism. Toward that end, gluten-free, casein-free pretzels are sold. (Gluten may increase the severity of autism.) This is the go-to food for anyone with food allergies since the pretzel is made in a facility free from wheat, dairy, fish, shellfish, egg, soy, sesame, peanuts or tree nuts. It was a bit taste-free, too, however.

For lists of the other vendors at the stadium, check here. I’ll be there on Monday to see the Nats go up against the Marlins, so I’ll be back to review the pretzels myself and rule on that “taste-free” comment above! I’ll probably have a Hard Times Frito Chili Pie with it, too. All their chilis except their vegetarian are gluten free, and Fritos are safe, too!

If you want to check out the stadium without seeing a game, there will be an Open House this weekend, and the vendors’ stands will be open for business. For the details and for your free ticket, check the Nationals’ website!
