So I have almost bought these chips a few times in the store but they aren't labeled gluten free so I never did. Every time I was in the store and saw them it was in the evening and far too late to call customer service. Finally today my husband texted me and asked if I could have them. Their website didn't say anything about them being gluten free but they have no yeast or soy so I called. Apparently they are not considered gluten free because either of the manufacturing process or because the company could not source an ingredient, the rep couldn't say which because she didn't have access to that sort of information.
In the end though, this is the same company that makes Trix. Trix are "not considered gluten free" but don't carry the same "may contain traces of" warning may GM cereals do. I eat it with no ill effects, it has no gluten containing ingredients. It falls under the same category by the company as the chips do.
Has anyone else tried these chips? I'm not generally reckless, and I understand it is risky, but so are my bedtime Trix. (Which have never caused me harm, nor have Kix.) I'm quite tempted, but am curious to know if anyone else has tried them and been bitten or been fine. Or if I would be our first guinea pig.
