I picked up Hershey's Kisses, Cherry Cordial and Candy Cane at the store. I popped one of each into my mouth. Worst reaction in years. Just not sure which or both of them. These go out of the house today. Anyone else reacted to these Kisses?

1960s-had symptoms-could have been before but don't remember
1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms
Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance
2000-osteopenia
2001-had stroke because of medications I was given
June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months
June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)
May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world

Hersheys candy always makes me sick. Nestle milk chocolate morsels are gluten free and they taste a lot like Hersheys. I keep those on hand for when I want some chocolate. Those with a handful of raisins makes a great snack.

Hershey's doesn't agree with me either....too bad because I love the taste of their milk chocolate.

Someone gave me a candy cane filled with Hersheys Kisses. I know that at Halloween Hersheys said these were gluten free. Is this still the case? They are calling my name and I really want to eat them. They are the plain ones. thx

I would be very surprised if anything has changed in two months. They have not changed in (at least) 10 years with respect to the Kisses.

Thanks. I guess I kind of already thought this. I was glutened 2 weeks ago when my baby niece stuck her hand in my mouth while it was covered in cracker crumbs. I am just being extra careful b/c my system is still a little sore. Thank for the reassurance.

I bought the candy cane kisses a week or so ago....and didn't think anything of it. Well I have had a huge contstant headache the last week....i broke out, and I am having digestive issues. I was trying to figure out where the gluten came from...but just figured it out!! The dang candy cane kisses!! So sad, because they were SO delicious!! ;0

I bought the Cherry Cordial ones (figuring if I couldn't have them, my DH could eat them)... couldn't find any alleregen info on the bag, nor on their the regular or holiday website listed on the bag... which, IMO was kind of pathetic-- they could put up all sorts of recipes & other stuff, but no allergen info. I was going to try to call their Customer Service line, but I've been too busy/ tired the last couple days.

My DH will be more than happy to enjoy them :)

At Halloween, i did have the regular Hershey's Kisses with no problem, but I also don't react strongly.

They may not have gluten ingredients in them but every time I eat Hershey's candy I get sick. I think they have a big CC problem. I am super super sensitive though.

Me too. There's just something about Hershey's that doesn't agree with me.

I used to live near Hershey Pa and some of my friends had summer jobs at the factory and also at the Reese plant(OK this was a while ago). I can remember them saying how the company reclaimed chocolate if it didn't form correctly or when they cleaned machines, that the chocolate was too valuable to just trash. Now I don't know if they are still doing that but given how companies pinch pennies these days I wouldn't be shocked if they did. So this could be the source of cross contamination. Husband gave me a valentine heart with kisses in it and I am pretty sure I am reacting to them. Also weren't they moving their manufacturing to Mexico or someplace else? That would open up a whole host of other issues with ingredients. I don't know if I am reacting from cross contamination or the artificial flavoring but I am swearing off them for now until they clearly have the words gluten free on the packaging.
