Gluten-Free Baseball Food: Hot dogs, beers and snacks for the World Series

The World Series is in full swing (pun intended), and whether you’re a Dodgers diehard, rooting for the Red Sox or just along for the peanuts and Cracker Jack, there’s no denying baseball is as American as apple pie (for a scrumptious gluten-free version of that, click here). And to help you have a classic good time, we’ve got plenty of safe gluten-free baseball food options for you to check out.

Hot dogs

The traditional hot dogs and beer can pose a challenge for those following a gluten-free diet, so here are some suggestions for enjoying the game without feeling like you’re missing out on the classic tastes and smells of the old ballgame.

7 gluten-free hot dog brands

  • Applegate Farms’ beef, chicken, turkey and pork varieties
  • Bar-S (note that its corndogs are not gluten free)
  • Boar’s Head
  • Dietz & Watson (certified gluten free by the National Celiac Association)
  • Nathan’s Famous hot dogs (they are also produced in a gluten-free facility)
  • Sabrett hot dogs (certified gluten free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization)
  • Kunzler’s

Don’t forget the bun! Show off and make your own with these tips from our resident baking expert or pick up a package of your favorite gluten-free hot dog buns before you fire up the grill.

Beer

Of course, you’ll also need a frosty beverage to wash down your dog (or something to turn to should your team fall behind). Gluten-free beer is increasingly available, so you have quite a few American gluten-free beers to choose from. Check out our gluten-free beer roundup for taste, availability and even food pairing information for more than 65 brews.

Snacks

If you’re taking in the games with younger fans, score big with traditional kid-friendly—and gluten-free—baseball snacks, including sunflower seeds, peanuts, popcorn (I love Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop!) and these pigs in a blanket.

Now you’re ready to savor the final weekend of the 2018 baseball season!
