Regular Milky Ways are not gluten-free. They contain both wheat flour and malted barley.

Aren't dark chocolate milky ways gluten free? I thought so but have been too scared to try. The info should be available somewhere, though. I would avoid them though, personally.

Regular Snicker's are gluten free, I eat them with no problem. Not the same as a milky way, but...something, anyway.

Yes the dark milky ways are gluten free. I eat at least 2 a week.

So M&M's, Dark Milky Ways, Snickers and Butterfingers are good? That's a pretty nice selection. I'm sure there are more but these would tide me over nicely!! Especially M&M's. Yummm!! Though I'm still mad they changed the tan color to blue LOL

I hated the tan ones as a child. Would pick them out and try to throw them away when my parents weren't looking. For some reason I thought they tasted less chocolatey than the dark brown ones. Those were my favorite. Although I was happy they got rid of them, I did not like the blue ones. I just think blue food is wrong.

I have a friend who claims she can taste the red coloring in foods and that it tastes bad. Ever since then I think I do notice a difference with some things. Not things like cherry candy, but in things where the candies are all different colors but the same flavor. Like M & Ms. I do notice a difference.

Two things:

1) If ANY of your candy bars have HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) put it back on the shelf.
2) Stick with all natural dark chocolate bars (high in anti-oxidants)

High Fructose Corn Syrup is fine in moderation....no one has to put their candy back on the shelf! I mean, you have impressive abs so I'm sure you don't eat candy but a lot of us don't look like that and tend to enjoy a snickers now and then....but you...you go on with your bad self and that rockin 100 pack! :P

I'm on the 'HFCS is bad' bandwagon as well. I don't think it's a good idea even in moderation.

Nope, don't go for the Reeses Pieces :( But peanut butter and peanut M&Ms are fine. Anything but the pretzel ( self explanatory :unsure: ) Reeses peanut butter cups are good, too. Hershey's plain and almond, regular size bars, too! (Guess you can tell which wagon I ride on :D )
