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

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The following link might be helpful for others experiencing simlar psychosomatic issues with doctors. Although it's only for psychiatrists, I think it should be for all doctors! http://www.psychsearch.net/complaints/ The neuropsychiatrist I saw might fall into this category? I can checkmark:

       Falsified medical records
       No Biological Test for "Mental Illness" (no blood, urine or other lab testing)
       Breach of Confidentiality (...if she sends my medical records to my doctor or discusses them with him. I am requesting a copy of my records from this doctor t see if she sent anything to him.)
       Physical Illness Misdiagnosed as "Mental Illness"
       I was told I have a "chemical imbalance" (without any lab tests)
       Unethical Conduct
       Unprofessional conduct
       Something else that didn't seem quite right  
    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with road construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist to tell her what happened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I am hoping my report is amended or new negative comments are not added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.

      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.
