Hershey's has one of the least helpful websites I've ever visited! Anyone know if milk duds are gluten-free or not? Their ingredients look okay...but...(my son has a box and is bugging me this morning rather than yesterday when consumer affairs might have been open. Aargh!)

Hershey's is actually a wonderful company. All you have to do is read the label. Things are not hidden, if it comes from a top allergen it will be listed as such.

FYI-

I've found that Hershey's, Kraft, and Oscar Meyer have said that they list "top allergens" clearly on their products (according to their websites and to phone-reps. that I've talked with recently). -Julie

Good luck! B) ;) :)

Actually, all of the companies mentioned here don't just list top allergens, they list any gluten. BTW, Oscar Meyer is a part of Kraft.

Here is a list of companies or brands (some are subsidiaries of the bigger companies) that list gluten or wheat. On the bigger companies, like Kraft, Unilever, General Mills, or Conagra, go to their web site to see all their brands. There are more than this, but I've checked these myself:

Aunt Nelly's
Balance
Baskin Robbins
Ben & Jerry
Betty Crocker
Blue Bunny
Butterball
Breyers
Campbells
Cascadian Farms
Celestial Seasonings
ConAgra *lists wheat only
Country Crock
Edy's
General Mills
Good Humor
Green Giant
Hellman's
Hershey
Hormel
Hungry Jack
Jiffy
Knorr
Kozy Shack
Kraft
Libby's
Lipton
Martha White
McCormick
Nabisco
Nestle
Old El Paso
Ortega
Pillsbury
Popsicle
Post
Progresso
Russell Stover
Seneca Foods
Smucker
Stokely's
Sunny Delight
T Marzetti
Tyson
Unilever
Wishbone
Yoplait
Zatarain's

Hey Richard-

Nice list! Oscar Meyor/Kraft are the same (good call, my mistake)...I was just sitting here at work yesterday and was racking my brain for companies/products that I remembered clearly listing gluten on the labels. (Especially products that a child might beg for or enjoy eating...i.e. candy and hotdogs) :P ;)

Hey Freya...

looks like you've got plenty of options...and a happy 10 year old! ;) B)

Take Care all-
Enjoy the holidays

-Julie :)

Very good list indeed. I've tried to buy more from the companies that list allergens whenever given a choice. But i was pretty dismayed a few wks ago when i found a Kraft product w/ an obvious gluten source and no allergen warning on the pkg. It was Louis Rich brand pre-cooked seasoned chickenstrips. I took a picture w/ my Palm but it didn't come out clear enough to read the details, unfortunately.
I remember which store and tho it isn't close i go by there occassionally so maybe i'll go look again and write down the info instead of relying on a camera in a device for which taking pics isn't its primary function.

I'm not sure that Kraft does allergen warnings, at least I don't remember them doing it. What they do is what you saw -- they clearly list gluten in the ingredients.
