Mike and Ikes are one of my favorite candies..and now the ingredients list "modified food starch" in them. I am heartbroken. unless the mysterious ingredient is gluten-free, Mike and Ikes aren't gluten-free anymore :(

Before you panic or panic anybody else you should call the company and ask. Here's the number.

Consumer Relations team toll-free at 1-888-645-3453.

Mike and Ike is made by JustBorn and everything or nearly everything they make is gluten-free. In addition, while it's true that MFS can be from wheat, it very rarely is.

Hi, I searched on the internet and also sent the company an e-mail...the company will write back and if you haven't called them yet, I'll post the response here. While searching the net, I came up with some webpage made on tripod that said that included Mike & Ike in a gluten-free candy list. I also found another list on the internet that said that Mike & Ike is gluten-free, but warned that although they know that the original is gluten-free, other variations might not be: http://www.tacanow.com/foodlist.htm. Anyway, I don't consider those two site enough to go on...I'll post the response from the company regarding my question.
