All of the varieties of M &M's are gluten-free except the Crispy in the blue package (not even sure they make it anymore though). Enjoy!!

My personal favorites are peanut butter and almond :)

I love M & Ms but thought I checked and they were not OK. Are the Australian M& Ms different to the USA ones ? Chocolate covered in candy?

Good question, but I don't have an answer for you. I do know that M & Ms are safe in Canada.

They sound the same, deffinately Chocolate covered in candy with the letter M on them. Also peanuts covered in candy with the M on them. Both are gluten free in Canada and I'm pretty sure the US as well. Maybe check the bag and see where they are made. If they are imported from here, they are likely just fine.

Unfortunately M & Ms in Australia are NOT gluten free - stupid but they use glucose made from wheat. You'd think they'd make them the same everywhere, but not so. I get friends in Canada to send me m & ms so I get to eat them every few months.

So, I ate M & Ms yesterday, and I had a horrible reaction. I know that the M & Ms are gluten free, but I think they may have been cross-contaminated. Another possibility, though, is that, since I've only been on the Gluten-free diet for a short period of time, my body may still be sensitive to that kind of food. I'm also lactose intolerant, but this reaction was the kind I get when I eat gluten, not lactose. So I think it's probably just due to how little I've healed so far. I really hope that I'll be able to eat M & Ms eventually, though, since they're some of my favourite chocolates :).
