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."

    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it. 
    • I admit, my blood panel was "mildly positive" with only the DPG IGA being the positive, yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIB (pathologist report) though my visual on the endoscopy was fine.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose, that is for sure.
