OK, who put the gluten in the peanut butter cup?? I had 2 of the small cups yesterday, and had stomach pains through the day and night. I called Hersheys today, and they said they could not guarantee that is it gluten-free. But my stomach knows :angry: Anyone else have a reaction to the peanut butter cups? Janet

I am afraid of peanutbutter cups. When I called about them originally (which was quite some time ago) the csr told me that it depended on the size of the peanutbutter cup - :blink:

Some of the mini's are thought NOT to be gluten free, but the larger versions ARE considered gluten free.

I have no factual basis for this, but it comes up every year about this time.

I'm sorry that you got sick Janeti, BUT:

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are ABSOLUTELY gluten free.

I literally eat these by the pound - and am very sensitive - I have never had a problem.

Some of the holiday Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - the ones that are shaped differently, have wheat in them - but Hershey's will never hide gluten, so you just have to be careful. Here's a link to a discussion on the board about that: http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/lofiversion...php/t12401.html

If you can have dark chocolate chips, you might be able to make quick fudge. I take chocolate chips, microwave them (just a handful), stir once melted, quickly add peanut butter (and butter/sour cream if okay), powdered sugar, roll into little balls, refrigerate, and eat - easy and yummy!

Before I go any further, Janeti, you wouldn't have anyproblems with peanuts would you? Just a thought.

But what wonderful ideas. I'm tempted to give them a go. I had been wondering what peanut butter cups were and now I sort of know. Peanuts and chocolate, lovely. My favourite would be peanut slabs. A concoction of peanuts in chocolate, in a big solid heafty bar. Yummy.

I have called Hersheys several times in the past, and asked them about different kinds of the kisses. They gave me a direct anwer of "no", they are gluten-free. I thought that I remembered seeing somewhere that the peanut butter cups were gluten-free. But today when I called and asked them about the mini peanut butter cups, they said they could not say that they were gluten-free. This makes me crazy. It's not worth having that nausea and hanging out in the bathroom for most of the night over a half of mouthful of a little chocoalte with peanut butter. I still say that if something has gluten.....it should say it. Janet

When I was little I used to make peanut butter cups with my grandma. We would just get cupcake pans and put the little cupcake tins in it. Then my grandma would melt chocolate on the stove and spoon in some chocolate. She would let that sit and get kind of hard and then put peanut butter on top. Then she would spoon another layer of chocolate on top and then put the whole thing in the fridge to cool. It was just like a reeses (expecially since you use the cupcake tins...they make the ridges on the side), but tasted so much better with creamy peanut butter in it instead of the dry stuff in reeses.

It is really easy to do and would def. be gluten free!!

I've been making candies for years at the holidays using different molds or cups (a la reeses cups) and always do a homemade Reese's cup. I even have a mold that's the same size. This year will be my first holiday season gluten-free, so I may need to tweak the recipes a bit, but for my peanut butter, I would mix melted butter and powdered sugar with the peanut butter for the filling. YUM-MY!!!

Hello, I also posted a question on here the other day because I ate a Reese's Peanut Butter "pumpkin" cup and had ill reactions, I called Hershey's and they counld not tell me that any of the peanut butter cups were gluten free. I also read that they may use wheat when rolling out the ingredients but I don't know for sure. I actually bought some hershey bars and a new jar of peanut butter and will make my own so no more ill feelings occur. Good luck! Pam

About 10 days ago I had put the same question out on the board as I had the same reaction you did and called Hershey's and they told me the same thing they told you..........I got Hershey's plain chocolate bars and a jar of peanut butter and dip my candy bar in the peanut butter.........it saves me the illness. Good luck!

I work in Hershey and I know a guy who work for hershey co and I posed a question to him about this one time. This is what he speculated about this:

Regular Reeses are made at the Reeses plant in hershey. This plant only makes a limited amount thing, probally all gluten free items. The other sizes are made at other plants, and those plants can be mixed with gluten containing products as well as the reeses. This seems to make sense, however I know at the main plant in hershey (called 19 East), they make kisses and kitkats and dark chocolate all in the same plant, but on different days. (I know this because I drive by it on my way home and I can just SMELL what they make everyday!)

Granted this is all speculation from a guy who works in sales at hershey, not actually making the chocolate, so he's not offical or anything, but it made sense to me.

I got a question.. have you seen the new regular reese's cups that are CRISPY?(ie might have gluten in them :( ) Does this mean our regular peanut butter cups will no longer be safe.. because they ARE the same size as the regular cups ? Just thought since you are talking about reactions I'd put it up. The second I saw ads for those new cups I STOPPED buying reese's products. I also noticed more cookie products. It seems all the food manufacturers are doing this and every company I see I switch away from! :(

I'm now switching to eating the chocolate that is high Cacao % (greater than 50) and eating it with peanut butter instead!

I have been eating the Reeses cups since I was diagnosed, but recently I had a reaction to them. I know that when I call places, the veracity of information is subject to the insight of the person on the other end of the phone, which is many times incapable of knowing facts on "gluten free." For now, the mini reeses seem to have some gluten aspect withint them.

You've got a good point. It does seem to be a fad, and for good reason. People react to new products, and I loved all the "crispy" versions that were starting to come out about 1

    • Formal dinner suggestions
      You could take shrimp cocktail -- just ice it & no need for heating that then. How about following up with some coconut crusted fish with some nice veggies on the side? That could just be nuked to reheat & only takes a minute or two. Make sure when they put it in the microwave that it is covered in case there is gluten lurking on the ceiling of the microwave that can fall down into his food.
    • Formal dinner suggestions
      Hi people. I'd just like some ideas for what I can take for V to a formal family dinner. Unfortunately the restaurant has stated there is no gluten-free safe option so I have to take his meal and dessert.  I can make him gluten-free chocolate cake so thats fine.  But its a three course dinner, and I need to transport it there. Hopefully they will be happy to heat it if needed.  Something really nice and special would be good because everyone else will be eating really  nice meals.  
    • Italian pasta
      Get some celiac travel cards to print off and keep in your wallet.  Present them to your waiter.   http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/ Tell the airline that you need a gluten free meal, BUT take food with you because odds are the airlines will make a mistake.   As far as the wheat pasta.....some folks say the wheat is different.  I personally think they are kidding themselves.  There is no scientific proof that I have found to support this theory.  (Anyone want to present such data?)  Italy, from what I heard is great for celiacs.  I'll know for sure this summer!  I'll be there!   As usual, we plan on bringing some packable food, but we are good at shopping at grocery stores for food and picnicking when traveling.  I expect foods at grocery stores to be clearly marked as they were in Great Britain since they are part of the EU.  
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
