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.
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

- Boar’s Head
- Dietz & Watson (certified gluten free by the National Celiac Association)

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.
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.
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!
