The m&m's bag has dextrin on it. Does anyone know if this is wheat or corn?

m&m's are fine with the exception of the crispy ones in the blue bag. Enjoy!

Yep...M&M's are fine...their dextrin is not a concern. As Jessica said..the only ones that are not gluten free are the crispy ones :D

the dextin is corn. M&M's are a great gluten-free treat! (except for the crispy ones of course!)

What do you mean by "crispy" m&ms? In canada we only have plain and the ones with peanuts.

At least in the US, there is a blue bag that says Crispy on it...it's not gluten-free. The yellow one with peanuts is gluten-free as is the original brown bag.

Yes, they're gluten-free. And they're a division of Hershey's so they should list gluten clearly.

This is my first post; sorry if it comes out looking funny or something. Also, I realize this is an old post. I just read what you said about Reese's peanut butter cups being gluten free... as far as I know that is acurate and I have been eating them just as much as I always have. But beware of the Reese's peanut butter egg things that are wrapped in foil!! They have wheat flour. I was surprised when I read the ingredients, but they are not the same as the cups.

Yes, this is a very old thread. And I don't think MARS even makes the crispy M&Ms anymore? I sure have not seen them around.

    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
