So Sugar Queen Amanda here, just took a stroll down to the hospital cafeteria to get some sugar. I picked up a package of Starbursts which I have not had in the longest time. The package says gluten free in small letters under the ingredients. It was exciting! Thought I would share especially in time for Halloween!!!

I have seen the mini packages out for Halloween, now I will buy them to snack on at my desk...honestly at work I live on candy. Outside of here I eat very healthy.

I guess Starburst must be different in Canada. I checked the ingredients last week at the grocery store and it was still NOT gluten-free...too bad for us I guess.

I think they were always ok, just now it is on the packaging. I bought some out of a candy machine the other day and it was not written on that package. So they must have just started the gluten free labeling.

The ones I bought with the gluten-free label were some funky flavors too, lime and such but they were in the original yellow package. Interesting.
