The Q&A section on the Amazon product listing for Vital Wheat Gluten is chaos
@ghostwife that seems.... problematic
@ghostwife gluten free gluten!
...so basically, a bag of air
@ghostwife On the one hand I suspect trolling. On the other hand this is so repetitive I would hope actual trolls would move on.
@MrControll Yeah I'd hope nobody would spend 3 years doing this
@ghostwife honestly might start selling gluten free gluten. You don't need packaging for nothing, right?
@ghostwife these are some absolute customer questions
@ghostwife your current icon is *chefkiss* for the feeling of this post, I must say. Absolute perfection.
@ghostwife The trolling is strong with this crowd.
@ghostwife i would suspect trolling but as someone that is part of that community, uh ... yyyyeah.
there's still a crap ton of inter-community fighting over whether or not potatoes and rice have gluten so 🤷 this tracks.
@ghostwife is it lactose free?
@ghostwife so this is obviously absurd but it absolutely does not surprise me, there's not a lot of common understanding about what gluten actually is
like glutinous rice is gluten-free because glutinous in that context just means "sticky," so i can see how people get confused
@ghostwife tbh the number of times people try to bond with me over "haha why is this ostensibly gluten free thing labeled gluten free" and i have to be like "well actually sometimes there will be gluten in it"
it's a whole mess
@ghostwife I will have you know
@antifuchs why would all these people lie to me
@ghostwife I mean, this is the internet
@antifuchs dang... so that's where I've been posting all this time
@ghostwife this is giving me some strong "everyone's given up on reading anything because we all assume it's gonna be bs anyway" vibes
@ghostwife there is simply no way of knowing whether or not this product is gluten free
@ghostwife Just yesterday, I was at a public event where I overheard this:
"They're selling gluten-free hotdogs. Don't want one. Those things are full of flour."
The mind boggles. Or maybe, the boggle minds.
