Sugar Free Hershey's And Reeses Pb Cups
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi all,

In my quest to go sugar free, I picked up some Hershey's miniatures (plain chocolate) and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (mini's) - both sugar free. Hershey's ingredients are: Lacticol (Milk); Chocolate; Cocoa butter; polydexrose; cream (milk); milkfat; contains 2% or less of : soy lecithin; PGPR (Emulsifier); Artificial Flavor; and sucralose. The PB Cups are: Lacticol (Milk); peauts; chocolate; cocoa butter; cornstarch; peanut oil; milkfat; contains 2% or less of: polydextrose; partially hydorgenated soybean and cottonseed oils; salt; cream (milk); soy lecithin and PGPR, emulsifiers; natural and artificial flavor; TBHQ (Preservative); and sucralose.

What do you think? Are they gluten-free? I know the regular ones are. Or should I just contact the company? I thought I'd give the board a try, just in case someone had already contacted them.

Thanks!

Brenda

Hershey does not hide gluten so if it has wheat, rye or barley it will clearly say so. Same with Kraft and a host of other companies. According to the ingredients you listed, these are gluten-free.

Someone gave me a white chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and I just got off the phone with them. They are gluten free. The representative was very nice and explained what anything I couldn't identify came from.

Hey,

Before even receiving a reply from anyone, I ate them. No reaction from gluten! I was pretty sure they were gluten-free according to the ingredients, but I'm such a newbie....I was just so SCARED!!! :lol:

Anyway, they are actually pretty good. Definitely not the real thing....but good. It makes me feel like I've had some chocolate anyway. :)

Thanks for the replies!!

Does this only apply to sugar free? I just ate a regular reese PB cup. I'll have to get the wrapper out of the trash to see.

From what I can see, the regular reeses PB cups are fine. I hope im right.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
