Hi guys!

Im just wondering in Cadburys chocolate is Gluten free?

I know the liquid filed ones aren (eg: blocks of peppermint, caramello etc)

Is it safe or not?

Thanks!

Carmello's aren't gluten free anymore??? :o Good thing I gave up most candy!!! I guess you have to take a magnifing glass to the store with you and read the ingredients when buying candy now. Or, call the company. We were all shocked when the Cadbury Eggs, contained gluten this year. I was devastated! :( They were my favorite!!! It seems many companies are adding wheat back into candies again, so I would check before popping candy into my mouth--just to be safe.

WalMart sells bags of Dove chocolates for less than $3. I keep a ready supply of the Dark Chocolates "just in case." :rolleyes::lol:

Cadbury is a Hershey Product. Hershey has a history of non disclosure as to the source of their "natural flavors". Hershey products are NOT my shopping list.

Oh! It wasn't just me then! I'd had a very bad week, and I was about to buy a Cadbury Egg as a treat and I saw it had gluten. I got all weepy in the middle of the store--it was just the last straw--but I felt so silly. I mean, I'm supposedly a grownup, for goodness sake.

:lol:

I've been known to stomp my feet!!! My 25 yr old daughter just laughs at me and tells me to "get over it!" It wasn't over candy, and it was "kind of" in good humor! All my life, I have used one brand of toothpaste, and just that brand! Gleem, I only like Gleem. It's the only toothpaste that makes my teeth feel clean. It had gotten to the point where the only place I could find it was in the dollar stores--now they don't even have it! :( I stomped my feet!! I have given up so many things and I WANT MY GLEEM!!! I can order it online still--WHY CAN'T I FIND IT IN THE STORES??? IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK????? :angry:

I still indulge in M&M's and it's like a conspiracy. I go to the store to buy a bag for the dispenser at work, and all the plain M&M's are gone. Everyone has bought them and left all the flavors I do not want!!! :( I do not want dark chocolate, nor peanut, nor cherry flavored peanut--I WANT PLAIN!!! I'm supposedly a grownup too, but, ENOUGH'S ENOUGH!!! :lol:

FYI Cadburys in the UK has an excellent website that allows you to sort their products by food allergies/intolerances...they do have many products that are gluten free! Good luck.

Thanks for the website tip!

I just had a look at the Aussie Cadbury website, they have a full list of all their gluten free products!

Yay! I can still have a block of hazelnut! :-)

Most Cadburys products in the UK are manufactured on the same equipment as wheat products so I don't eat them. Most in the USA are not, but I don't eat them because they taste different and for someone raised on english cadburys, I just can't eat them and therefore haven't done much research on the gluten content. Not sure about Australia.

I know right...well I never had to worry about gluten until about a week ago and 4 days ago I had a carmello (i looked on the ingredients and no signs of gluten) but it must be hidden because boy was I on the toilet all day and it sucked cuz i was at work....I'm still paying for it. I believe it's my worst gluten attack yet, if gluten's my problem but all signs are pointing to it.

Hrm, I eat Carmellos all the time, as well as many other Hershey chocolates. (I work on Chocolate Ave, Hershey Pa - 2 blocks from the plant the whole town smells like chocolate, i can't help myself!)

I can't say that I i don't have D daily, I do, but they don't give me the tell tale DH on my lips from gluten. I consider hershey's safe, and I know a few people that work there and they are confident most that "full size" candy bars that do not disclose wheat are safe. I am told kit kats share lines with other candies, in full size, but that is the only one. Reeses has a completely separate plant.

"fun size" candy bars do not have dedicated lines, and are manufatured all over the US, no garrentees about lines there.

Being I am in Hershey, most of my chocolate is made in Hershey plant, and that is what my souses know. People further away may be getting from other plants with different dedicated lines.

So any problems with glutening from Hershey chocolate is probally a shared line problem not a recipe problem.

Where are you from?

My partner worked for Mars (masterfoods) for a while and even if they come under the one brand, the chocolate is made in different countries and the ingredients are often slightly different. You should be able to find a website for cadbury that is specific to the country you are in.

here is the Australian site:

http://www.cadbury.com.au/sites/cadbury/index.php?pageId=35

there are a couple of things that you should watch out for with chocolat, such as any 'flavor' and sometimes soy lethcin isn't gluten free, really its always best to either buy something labeled as gluten free or to call the company to check.

good luck

For those in Australia check the ingredients as if it contains wheat/gluten it must state it by law on the label. If the label does not state that is has wheat than it is okay to eat. There are plenty of choices that are ok in the Cadbury range.

Lindt choc is generally not okay as they add malt extract. The dark Lindt is okay though.

Just want to point out that the safety of these products varies by country (a product can be unsafe in Australia but safe in the US, and vice versa). So, if someone from Australia says a product is unsafe, pay attention to which country that person is from before you stop eating your favorite candy forever. :)

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
