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.

    • I think the gene tests are accurate.  Not sure if thier interpretation of them is.   If you actually think have Celiac, you need to know that.  You  need to know how careful you must be.  You need a diagnosis to get gluten-free food in hospitals or nursing homes (if you can find one that does gluten-free food).  Because thsese "stool tests" are not medically accepted, it is unlikely that a real medical facility will consider you to have Celiac.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Why would your doctor order an endoscopy and check for celiac disease, but not order a celiac panel?  Had you been gluten free already?  
    • Thanks cyclinglady ... just wondering, do most of the people on this forum believe the Enterolab stool / gene testing to be non-trustworthy? Or are you just recommending a diagnosis from my MD so that she is also treating me with full belief/knowledge of my condition? I've been gluten free now for 2 weeks - by the time I get in to my doctor, she orders the bloodwork and I get to a lab it could be another 2 weeks before the bloodwork is done. From what I understand, just a month of gluten free eating could skew the results of the blood test. Supposedly, the stool tests are much more accurate. I hate to go backwards and start eating gluten again just so I can have a blood test done that may or may not substantiate the results of the stool / gene testing. I'm so confused ...
    • Try to stick to a whole foods diet.  Things like unseasoned stew, soup, etc.  Things easy-to digest, preferably not processed by a anyone except you.  Too often new celiacs start using gluten-free foods (cookies, bread, crackers).  Your body is not used to these grains and they often contain lots of junk.  For example, I react to Xantham gum.  It does not bother my gluten-free hubby, but it gets me every single time!   Did you read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping"?   It contains lots of valuable tips.  Make sure those meds are gluten free.  Supplements too.   I hope you feel better soon!    
    • Here are the actual tests.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Insist on the complete panel.  Let them know (your doctor) that your father had celiac disease.   Document in writing!  If you have celiac disease, your life can be improved.  All the things I attributed to aging were actually related to celiac disease.  It is never too late to feel well!  I am in my 50's but my Aunt iis 81.  We celebrate a Gluten free Thanksgiving every year!   Oh, my kid does not have celiac disease, but she is tested every few years even though she is symptom free!  There are silent celiacs.  My symptom?  Anemia.  No tummy issues.   Please advocate for your health.  Keep all records.  Doctors can not ignore written facts and requests.
