Mini York Peppermint Patties
0

10 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if these are gluten free. I read somewhere that peppermint patties were gluten free and didn't even think about the mini one's. I have a pretty bad gluttening the past few days and was wondering if these could be the culprit.

I also ate at Chipotle's and the reaction started about 24 hours later. I have been awake for two nights at least half the night. It is the holiday and weekend, so I can't contact them myself.

Thanks so much,

Monica

Hershey no longer claims to clearly list all gluten, BUT they must and will list wheat and they say any barley would be listed as malt. So you can still just read the ingredients to see if they're safe.

I consider Chipotle's to be safer than a number of places but they still do have flour tortillas so the risk of CC is always there. Did they put on new gloves before doing your order?

Thanks Richard, no they didn't use new gloves. I rarely eat out ever, but risked it. With all the flour tortillas, it does seem a bit risky. Other's here seem to do ok, so I always think it is just me. It will definitely be awhile before I eat there again.

I found that when I eat at Chipotle (which is about twice a month or more) that I can only order the burrito bowl WITHOUT cheese or anything that they would use their hands in. Even if they use new gloves, they haven't used new gloves before, so the cheese or whatever that's in the container is already contaminated. Since cutting out the cheese (and lettuce/onions, etc.), I haven't had a problem there.

monica,

Merry Christmas! I'm sorry that you are having a glutening...ugh :(

I haven't eaten yorks in awhile, but here was a point where I was living off them for my "sweet/cookie" type treat after going gluten free. They were safe at the time. I don't have any here to check.

one of my worse reactions ever was at a chipotle's....right before christmas, last year, as a matter of fact. I'm happy that others do so well there, but it is high on my list of no-no's (for me). so it might not be "just you."

hope that you recover quickly.

I just ate one of the Mini York Peppermint patties (in the tin) and had a gluten reaction within 20 minutes. The ingredients don't list gluten but do have "inverted egg whites" which could be the culprit...

Hershey will not disclose it's source for "Natural Flavors" in any of their products, and thus, will not consider these products to be gluten free.

So far, we have no had any problems with York peppermint patties. They're one of our (my boys' and my) favorite things. :P

As Momma Goose said, don't trust Hershey's just because the ingredients "look ok." But so far, the peppermint patties are ok for us.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.

      Hi- new here but have been reading a lot of posts (Long post, last two paragraphs have actual question)  my four year old daughter probably has celiac but I don't know if I'll ever get a definitive diagnosis at this point.    Backstory: growth Delays, GI issues and a few other symptoms as a baby/young toddler. Did not have blood work done but went straight to biopsy which was negative. Always still had suspicions that gluten bothered her.    Started developing more symptoms around 3, by 3.5 they were pretty bad and her dr recommend eliminating gluten. (Blood in stool, rashes, low grade fever, joint pain, stomach pain and bloating, behavior issues) Everything cleared up quickly! Yay. Still had occasional gluten because I was under the impression it was "just an intolerance" and her symptoms kept up/got worse with each exposure. (Developed vomitting as most recent symptom) So I wanted to know if it was celiac. Can't do blood or biopsy since she's been mostly off gluten for months by this time.  I really was hoping to have a concrete answer and diagnosis, So we did genetic testing recently. It came back positive for half of DQ2 (beta subunit). Her dr isn't giving her official diagnosis but says "she is at a fairly low risk" but with her symptoms doesn't that mean she has developed it??!   Either way he says to keep her off gluten but I don't understand why he won't diagnose? Right now I am just telling people (besides family) that she has it because it's too hard to explain it all but do you think an actual diagnosis would be beneficial in any way? Should I push the issue with her dr? 
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Thanks for the advice and encouragement, Gemini. I appreciate having additional insight into my situation. Celiac being the cause of my health issues makes more and more sense the more I learn about it, and eliminating gluten sounds more and more like the right choice for me.

      The topic of this forum is "Celiac Disease - Publications & Publicity," so certainly it fits in here, and in fact, this topic is designed specifically to handle any media coverage that relates to celiac disease and/or the gluten-free diet.

      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.
