The rep said;
All M&M's are gluten-free, except for the "Crispy M&Ms"
Snicker bars are gluten-free
Snickers almond bars are gluten-free
Aqua drops (hard candy) are gluten-free
Skittles are gluten-free
Starburst is gluten-free
Dove candy bars are gluten-free
Three Musketeers Bars are gluten-free
THESE ARE THE PRODUCTS THE REP SAID ARE NOT gluten-free!
MILKY WAY BARS ARE NOT gluten-free
(except the midnight dark chocolate one)
All "POPABLES" ARE NOT gluten-free!!!!! (all flavors)
The "Popables" have modified wheat starch listed as an ingredient. The CSR checked with the Product Nutrition Rep who elaborated that the "Popables", (unlike the regular candy bars), are processed on the same lines as products with wheat, thus there is a chance of cross-contamination.
I asked the rep to forward my request to modify the "Popables" label to note: the warning of "This product may contain wheat." or "Processed on equipment that also processes wheat."
Read those labels carefully. I thought that the candy bars (like Snickers) and their Popables versions were the same. According to the company they aren't, due to the cross-contamination/equipment issue. So, no "Popables" for us!!
