Ok, I have a question. Are all Butterfingers gluten free? I was under the impression that they were, but my body begs to disagree. In the past four days I've had a few a couple times, the little bite size ones, and I'm surely not feeling the way I should. I know it can't be anything else, not just because I'm a spaz about checking the ingredients. But, I also have a very strict diet. All fruits and vegetables pretty much. So, if anyone could provide me with some insight, it would be much appreciated.

An easy internet search found this from 2008:

Yes, I've done that search myself, I was wondering if anyone else experienced anything from them. It's a crazy thought, but I believe everyone reacts differently. Thank you for your insight, and time.

There are times when the small varieties of a particular candy bar are not safe when the larger ones are. We see this around holiday times when special versions of them come out. I don't know if they use different plants for making them or what it is but I would stick with the larger varieties that you know for sure are safe.

If the small varieties contain wheat, they will list that in the ingredients, just like their big siblings. You just may have to look on the bag. There may not be enough room on the bite size products for the ingredient label. :)

since becoming celiacs and cutting out gluten, my body is extremely sensitive to dairy and soy as well (soy is in sooooo many things). It could be your body is reacting to that. However, even the same candies but different sizes can be a problem. You need to check each one.
