Hershey Chocolate Syrup

A call out to all on Hershey's Chocolate Syrup. Is it gluten-free? We're using Nesquik, but I prefer Hershey over Nestle.

TIA,

Libby.

Hershey's is a brand like Kraft so all you have to do is check the label. If it doesn't say wheat, rye, barley, or oats right on the label then it is safe :D

I love Hershey's syrup :D

For those of you who cannot have the soy that is often in these things, take a tablespoon or two of water and add to it a dash of salt, a tsp of cocoa, and 2 tsp of sugar. Heat them either in the microwave or on the stove until just boiling. Stir well. If you like your syrup really rich, add a little butter. This makes a great syrup for hot or cold chocolate milk. If you heat your milk, do not let it come to a boil. Last of all, add a drop or two of vanilla.

You can let the chocolate boil for an extra few seconds and it makes a good syrup to pour over ice cream. I like to thicken mine just a little with some powdered sugar when I use it for ice cream.

This is a regular around our house. If you are dairy intolerant, it also works with other non-dairy beverages.

does anyone know if hershey's strawberry syrup is gluten free as well? I'm hesitant about the "artificial and natural flavors" listed and had a small reaction after having some today. I know the chocolate syrup is Gluten-free but are the other flavors Gluten-free as well?

Thanks!!

My understanding is that the Hershey's chocolate syrup is gluten free. However, at least as of a year ago, Hershey STOPPED saying that they disclosed all gluten, and started saying that they could not say whether the natural flavors in their products were derived from rye/barley/oats (my main concern would be barley, since they are required by law to disclose wheat, and I have never heard of rye or oats being a source of natural flavors. However barley, although unlikely to be in natural flavors without being disclosed, can be a source of natural flavors). There are a few items with natural flavors that they have verified as gluten free (e.g., as of last time I called, this included kisses and chocolate bars). Nestles, on the other hand, is still a company that labels for all gluten, not just wheat.

I just spoke with a Hershey's representative and they said that none of their artificial or natural flavors are derived from a gluten source. So I guess that means it's safe!

The statement Hersheys made to you today is in direct conflict with the statements they made to other members of the forum a few months ago (http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?s...44350&st=33) They will not confirm or deny if their natural flavors contain gluten. Hersheys is not a reliable company.

Hersheys has tested some of their products for gluten content. The very short list is below. I still will not buy any Hersheys product until they say whether or not there is gluten in their natural flavors.

Hershey Products that are Gluten-Free and Were Tested*

Kisses - Milk chocolate

Hershey Bar and Hershey Almond Bar

Jolly Rancher hard candy and lolly pops

Hershey's Cocoa - plain unsweetened

Unsweetened Baking Chocolate Bar and Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar

Hershey Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Hershey Chocolate Syrup

When I called Hershey at Easter the rep I spoke with was really helpful. She went through every candy I gave her and told me gluten-free or not. It isn't as helpful as Wonka/Nestle who sent me a list and coupons (just received those today!), but my experience was very positive. I wonder if I just got a really friendly person...

I'm so glad to hear that Hershey Chocolate Syrup is Gluten Free! I've been staying away from it because it says 'artificial flavor' on the label and I thought I had to stay away from anything that said that. I've just recently been diagnosed with Coeliac and have found out a lot of info today.

Do any of you know whether the Mocha drinks at Starbuck's are gluten free? I asked one of the managers and we looked on the ingredients of the syrup and it said that there are 'artificial flavors' in it so I've been abstaining from my Mocha's. They told me I could bring my own syrup if I wanted to.

My husband has Celiac and he drinks the Mochas at starbucks all the time.

It's the "natural flavors" that you have to worry about, not the "artificial flavors" as far as I know. anything made from wheat, rye, barley or oats would be "natural flavors".

We've been trying to stay from the high fructose corn syrups and just discovered that Nesquick syrup is made from sugar. Still not good for you, but better than the Hershey's as far as the high fructose.

Does anyone know if chocolate in general is gluten-free? My husband was just diagnosed with celiac disease 2 weeks ago. He doesn't normally eat a lot of sweets, but he told me he's so hungry all the time now that he has cravings for chocolate. He is also wondering about sausage, bacon, and brats. He loves brats but was told by a coworker that the processed food was not good for him. Would meat like this straight from a deli counter be ok since it wouldn't have preservatives? (We are in different states right now due to my schooling, so I have been trying to help him from a distance. Everything in our house has gluten in it and anything he tries to make, our small boys eat up!)

Tell your hubby that you ALWAYS have to read the labels.

Things that you never would have thought had gluten in it, often do.

Hormel makes many gluten-free meat produts, including excellent Deli meat (Hormel Naturals I think). The problem with a regular deli is that their SLICERS and prep areas will almost certainly be contaminated.

As a point of illustration, Honey Baked Ham has wheat in the glaze. Never would have thought Xmas could be ruined that easily.

Keep reading and researching, it gets easier!

The Nestle strawberry syrup is claimed to be gluten free but I just read on their website that if their ingredients are derived from wheat, barely or rye and they are less than 20ppm gluten they are gluten free. I tried the Nestle strawberry syrup and got inflammation in my feet. So those who are hypersensitive to gluten shouldn't consume some if not any of these products.

They don't say that they won't disclose gluten.

 

"The best way to determine if our products contain a gluten ingredient is to read our product label. This label includes an accurate, current listing of the ingredients in our products."

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
