Eating gluten free at the Musikfest is sure challenging and when you are volunteering with only 30 minutes for a meal break it can be tough. Snacks might be easier. Last year I had some great kettle corn and some super Creamery ice cream up by the Hotel Bethlehem. I am guessing you can still get those treats this Fest.
I did find some incredible brownies, up on the edge of Leiderplatz; right at the back of the Sun Inn. Hempzel Pretzels has a small stand there.
I used to eat their tasty soft pretzels years ago at the fest, when I could still eat wheat and gluten. They still have many great pretzel products for sale but there are also some certified gluten free brownies. I didn’t get a picture of them but the stand has a big basket of them. The flavor is outstanding, creamy and very chocolaty. Well worth the trip up to Leiderplatz. They also sell a garlic jam, didn’t get a taste of it but it is gf and looks like it might be great on a sandwich.
I didn’t find anything else at Leiderplatz that was gf and safe for me other than ice tea. I like the one that is half lemonade. Thirst quenching…
Saturday I plan to trek down to Voltzplatz on my break for their crazy good baked potato with pulled pork topping. It was incredible at last year’s fest, lots of tender meat topping a creamy baked spud. Can’t wait!
