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.
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.
