Richard,

Smarties, in the US are gluten-free. (I believe that in Canada, they are not)

My understanding (not being in Canada) is that the smarties in the US are a different candy. The smarties in Canada are similar to m&ms. The US smarties are a sugary treat, no chocolate.

As an aside, I sort of remember that they might have lactose in them...? check that out if you are lactose intolerant too.

my Canadian sister in law tells me that Smarties in Canada are a chocolate candy like m&m's and that American Smarties are sugary tablets... I'm addicted to those sugary things. (I think I ate 6 pks and 5 tootsie rolls today while waiting to pick up my daughter from school ;)

Canadian Smarties are chocolate sort of, but not quite like M&Ms.

Canadian Rockets=U.S. Smarties.

Rockets are gluten-free.

Yeah, Smarties are way better than M&Ms, and I miss them. I always ate the red ones last :(

Lori- don't get me started. My husband and I always have arguments about this. I think that M&Ms are the superior candy and he thinks smarties. Then he starts the debate about how M&Ms are acceptable only if they are peanut M&Ms. I personally think the original M&Ms are superior and now I want some. :ph34r:

Australian Smarties are like M&M's. Chocolate in the middle and a think layer or colored candy on the outside.

    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?
