Other than Hersheys, what other kinds of mainstream chocolate is gluten free?  I am making up a shoe box of stuff for a Birthday present and I want to include some chocolates.  I have Hershey's kisses in there but I want something else too.

 

Thx

Also, Lindt makes a 70% dark chocolate block which always used to be gluten free and soy free (if that is a concern, even though their other chocolates aren't.)

Mainstream may depend on where you live. Where do you live and shop?

By Mainstream I mean at my local Kroger chain and Walmart or Target.  :)

 

Thanks for all of the ideas.  My nephew will love this box of stuff.

It still varies. I live in the Seattle area, and can get Theo chocolate (for example - a better chocolate than Hershey's or Dove) at many local resellers (grocery stores and drug stores) because it is local. But you might not find it in the middle of Alabama. ;)

I like Ghiradelli. I know their white chocolate bars are gluten-free, as well as their semi and milk chips. I would check their semi and milk bars.

See's Chocolates has some gluten-free chocolates. Don't know if you have them there.

Toblerone (plain) is gluten-free. Seriously. So are Snickers.

Fudge Fatale makes gluten free chocolate as well as a caramel and espresso that I love giving as gifts to my friends and family. You can find it at your local Whole Foods or off of their website.

The Equal Exchange brand is gluten-free, and that's some powerful chocolate for any "connoisseur!" Plus, Endangered Species chocolate bars are great, and have tons of variety in flavor.

toblerone website states it has no gluten containing ingredients, but it does not say it is gluten free. to test i tried one small bar and got a fairly immediate gluten reaction unfortunately :/

Toblerone has only one product which contains a wheat ingredient, which is the Honeycomb version. So, they are basically a shared facility with only one product that is non-gluten-free.  As so many Celiac's eat Toblerone without issue and it is listed on many gluten-free candy lists, it could very well be that you had a problem with another ingredient.  There is a lot of dairy and soy in their candy. Not all reactions are caused by gluten.  I do not eat Toblerone but know many who do and they are pretty sensitive......no issue with the candy.

 

The best way to determine if it could be gluten is to call the company and see what their manufacturing practices are.

That's too bad that you had a reaction.  It is too bad that sometimes we have to find out the hard way what we react to.  Thanks for sharing.  I hope you feel better soon.

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Right, usually they do an endoscopy after a positive blood antibody test.  The biopsy confirms the antibody results.  Doing them in the reverse order doesn't hurt anything though.  Sometimes people "fail" the antibody tests but still have gut damage.  Not everybody makes the same antibodies or in the same quantities.  Anyway, you should make sure they are doing the complete celiac antibody panel, not just a ttg test. And don't worry if the celiac tests are positive for gliaden antibodies.  Going gluten-free is an adjustment to your diet. Quite a few people around here have managed to adjust successfully.  It takes some effort, but anything worthwhile does they say.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      I don't have scotomas but you might find more help on a forum dedicated to vision issues.  Here are a couple I found.  the last link is a Yahoo search for "eye forum"  There may be others found if you try a search on Google. http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Eye-Care/show/90 http://www.healthboards.com/boards/eye-vision/ https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=eye+forum&ei=UTF-8&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-003
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      BTW, all first degree relatives of celiacs are supposed to be tested for celiac every 2 years in the absence of symptoms -- immediately if symptoms present. Your kids, your parents & all siblings should be tested. And that goes for your brothers kids too.
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I agree completely with cyclinglady! Do you even know that there is such a thing called silent celiac? No symptoms at all but the villi are damaged.  I see you joined in 2009. Why? Is that when your brother was diagnosed? IMHO you need to do a lot of research & find out just exactly what you're risking. 
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      What?  Be sure that next endoscopy tests you for lymphoma (cancer) as well!   Seriously.  You need to do some research as your knowledge of celiac disease is lacking.  Did you fail the entire celiac panel?  Or did your doctor/insurance save cash and just order the very good (but does not catch all celiacs) TTG IgA?  You have a family history, a positive biopsy, what more do you need?  You do realize that this is not about just giving up gluten, don't you?  We just had a member join this year who was told years ago that her tests were "inconclusive" and that she now has suffered with lymphoma (cancer)? Ugh!   Endoscopy in 10 years?  Who would even wait 10 years?  This isn't colon cancer and polyps!   Are you talking about a colonoscopy?  Are you even sure you had an endoscopy?   Be sure you have your bones checked too.....and forget the breath.  You might not have any teeth and implants will be out since your bones will be compromised. Sorry, if I come on strong, but when I was diagnosed I had no tummy issues.  A few months later, my bones began breaking.  I was undiagnosed for a long time because of mis-informed doctors.  At least it was not stupidity on my part.   So, I urge you to research this disease more!  Hopefully you'll ward on another autoimmune disorder by remaining gluten free.  Find what celiac blood tests were actually taken!  Even if you do not think you have celiac disease, something has caused villi damage -- like a parasite, milk, or something......even more sinister! Good luck!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
