If you haven’t been keeping up with the Kardashians lately, the reality-TV superstars got into some gluten-free drama Gluten-Free Living readers may find relatable. For those who actively avoid the celebrity family, it’s best to stop reading now. If you’re curious to see what the drama was and how it unfolded, we’ve got a brief recap.
It all started over a children’s birthday party.
The theme? Candy Land. The problem? Kourtney Kardashian insisting that there would be “too much candy” and not enough healthful options for kids. The party, thrown by Kim and Kourtney for their daughters North and Penelope, sparked a debate those living the gluten-free lifestyle may find all too familiar.
In the episode, Kourtney, who has tried several different diets through the years, including keto, intermittent fasting, and gluten free, was appalled there wouldn’t be some healthful choices at the party.
“Everyone’s gonna come to this party and everything is gonna be disgusting chemicals? We need to have some healthy options,” she told her younger sister.
The suggestion was not taken well.
“It’s a Candy Land themed party! Yes! That’s, like, what the party is about: Candy Land. It’s not gluten-free land over here,” Kim said.
Ouch. How many of you have heard some variation of: “It’s not gluten-free land over here”?
The drama unfolded further on Twitter where Kourtney clarified what she was trying to get across.
“I never said NO candy. I said not all junk food, let’s have some salads etc, and @KimKardashian said she wanted the ice cream truck and I suggested organic ice cream with some non dairy options. Moderation.”
If you’re wondering – yes, there was plenty of candy at the party.
