so basically that was a brush off right??? i don't think there are any safe candy corn?????????

A brush off no. Just thought you might want to make a simple phone call and verify for yourself. It took 30 seconds to do it myself. Brachs Candy Corn are indeed free of any gluten ingredients. Have a whole bag full. :D

Not a brushoff and actually better than Brach replies in the past. Even before when they wouldn't really comment at all, it was quite obvious that their candy corn was gluten-free, but I refused to eat it on principle. I would eat it now as long as the ingredients didn't show any obvious wheat or malt.

All Zachary's candies are gluten free:

Their candy corn is good, but not as good as Brach's.

I had not eaten Brachs in the past because there was info that even though the ingredients are gluten-free the company wasn't really good about stating if candies were made on shared lines. I"ll have to fill out the form and get info.

I emailed Brachs (owned by Farley and Sather), part of their response is below. It looks like now they're stating whether their candies are prepared on shared lines. The two bags of Brachs candy corn and autumn mix I found at Wal-Mart both had statements that the product was made or handled on shared lines with wheat. I think it's a personal choice, some people would eat it and some (like me) would not. I"m going to stick with Zachary's this season, even though I do miss the taste of Brachs candy corn!

ok, so i just found their number online and called it. i asked about their cleaning process and it sounds pretty good. in between batches they take apart the machine and clean it, sanitize asnd dry all the pieces before putting it back together. so this pretty much is like a bunch of other companies out there who do the same thing.

think i might try......

I wish they'd just use dedicated lines. I was always a huge fan of the Brach's mellowcreme pumpkins that come out each year. I'm tempted to just try them and see what happens.

Anyone else eat them without a problem?
