TURTLES too!!!!!!! I called a few months ago and the woman, very sweetly, told me not only are they gluten-free but that they know we Celiacs need some goodies. Turtles way back used to be run by DeMets,
most recently by Nestle but now apparently sold bk to DeMets. I love them and have had no problem
with them. She also told me that they've rec complaints about the cashews in them (previously the
only nuts were pecans) and are planning on changing bk to only pecans. Their toll free # listed on the package is the # I called which I don't have handy. I'm having trouble finding Turtles "out of season"
(non holiday like Christmas) in the big box......found one at a super Walmart and small packages at
Walgreen's but that's about it. Got to go.....hope this give you another yummy goodie!.........Angel :rolleyes:

This thread is almost 5 years old. Product ingredients change in that amount of time. Check the ingredients yourself before eating.

Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare.  They are consumed in 12 minutes.  Half-times take 12 minutes.  This is not a coincidence.  - Emma Bombeck

Here in Canada, they are still sold under the Nestle brand, and are gluten-free.

PLEASE! Check the ingredients. They may still be gluten-free but the original thread is 2008, then a response a year ago that they are gluten-free in CANADA. Ingredients are not always the same. But, it's pretty simple. Just read the ingredients.

You people have to stop this! I NEED to believe all these goodies have gluten in them! My thighs and butt do not need turtles and gelatos and Snickers and flavored pretzels, etc! How am I supposed to lose weight ? OMG! All of my favorite things are gluten-free! :)

Sorry about the incoming chocolate craving Kareng... finally heard back from my email to them!

 

"Thank you for contacting DeMet's Candy Company regarding your inquiry.

 
While our TURTLES products do not contain gluten, they are not processed in a facility that is gluten free. We perform full allergen cleanings between production runs, however there is a slight chance that the product may contain traces of gluten. If you have any further questions regarding our products, feel free to contact us, we are more than happy to assist you."
 
So Shared facility, good cleaning practices, Id eat em.  Hmmmm maybe I should run to the store right now....

Shared facility with Good Manufacturing Practices. That works for me. I have to limit my consumption due to sugar content, but I don't worry about gluten in Turtles. Suddenly, I have this craving...
