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.

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.

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. :)

    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      The DGP IGG and TTG IGG versions of the celiac tests.  
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      I am also IgA deficient. My doc took more blood and looked at 2-3 other markers in the blood work , transglutinase, and 2 others. My biopsy showed blunted cilia in sm intestine, but my IgA was low. He suspected Celiac due to cilia so ordered other blood tests. I also presented atypically, burny stomach and reflux...and very little else.
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      If you have Celiac Disease, and you are IgA deficient, what do they check on your labs to make sure you are not being "glutened"?

      Hi again Richie, A lot of coeliacs have a problem with coffee, maybe you do too. It could explain the shakes you describe. I am sensitive to coffee, and haven't touched caffeine since last summer. (The detox lasted for 10 days and it wasn't pleasant, so if you ever give it up, do it gradually).  Sometimes when you're intolerant to something, when you have it, it makes you feel 'better' but it doesn't last and usually end up worse, it's like a drug - and in the case of caffeine it is. I also take a daily probiotic (gluten free and dairy free etc)., which is good for healing the gut.

      Cristiana and Flowerqueen, I haven't been officially diagnosed as Celiac but I had a DNA test in March 2015 which revealed I had the Celiac gene on both sides so it was advised that I have a test to see if I did have it. I didn't but I went off gluten immediately and haven't "knowingly" eaten it since. Before the DNA test I didn't have the nausea and trembling type feelings that I do now but I occasionally got the shortness of breath which I used to put down to being a smoker. (I quit almost 16 years ago) Anyway, this morning I woke with the nausea feeling, the trembling, loss of appetite, feeling of doom again but it happens so intermittently. I do have some unavoidable stress in my life all of a sudden so maybe it's all connected some how. But on the plus side my bowel movements have returned to normal and I go often especially after waking and having coffee. (Oh, and Cristiana don't worry about tmi with me. You would have to try pretty hard to offend me and nobody has done it yet. haha) I always think the worse to. The internet and Google are great but information overload becomes a real possibility creating some frightening scenarios. It's just interesting that the coffee with the MCT Oil (Brain Octane is the actual name) and butter makes me start feeling better and the nausea, trembling, anxiety seem to be extinguished by it but coffee with low fat milk doesn't although I do get more energy from it. I did read somewhere that MCT Oil was good for gut health though and if I had to describe it it would be like it just smooths over all the bad stuff with a nice soft lining.  It was recommended in my DNA test that I have more fats in my diet and low processed foods but I occasionally have gluten-free biscuits, gluten-free ice-cream (my true weakness) and gluten-free weet-bix. I've checked most of these items ingredients and they are pretty good. There is a lot of gluten free rubbish out there though which I completely avoid. Thanks GFinDC for your reply. I was going to speak to my Naturopath when I see her about Immune Health. My plan usually involves the Liver Tonic I mentioned above and heavy on the L-Glutamine which, apparently, is supposed to be excellent for gastrointestinal health but I'm not going to supplement with anything just yet until I get my blood work done and see if it reveals any deficiencies. I'm suspecting Iron though. Because I've had recent tests all coming back good I'm thinking a possible scenario would be a die-off effect I've heard of where all the bad bacteria have been killed off but your body can't rid itself of them quick enough so you actually feel or get worse before you get better. That's where the detox strategy comes in and I'm assuming replacing them with Good Bacteria via Probiotics. Again, this is what I have read in the past but it does seem to make sense in some cases. I do feel better in having found these forums though.

      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!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
