FYI, I was at the store to get some chocolate and I am grateful I looked at the new reeses products ingredient list. The Reeses shaped lights and I think the bells have wheat flour in the ingredient list.

Some Reese's products contain wheat, but not all of them. Read the label on the product you are thinking about eating. Last time I checked, the peanut butter cups were gluten-free. That is the only Reese's product I have eaten in years.

Thanks for the heads up! I think I've seen mention of flour in some of the other holiday Reese's. That's one where you always have to check the label. On the bright side, Hershey's says they will always put gluten ingredients on their labels.

That sucks. <_<

Seems like companies add this stuff at random, probably not..but it seems like it. I guess it's just more affirmation (at least for me) not to eat this junk. B)

Hershey now says that all Reese's products may contain gluten...(yes, even the cups) as may several other candy items we once thought safe . . .So beware! They have a Reese's candy bar out now. Outer label is identical to the cups, but on the big ingredient list is wheat flour. They don't, however, list wheat under allergen information at the bottom which most of us have gotten in the habit of reading soley. There, they only mention being processed on a line with almonds. I'm so sick of having to read fine print! If only they all could be like Betty Crocker and post gluten-free right on the front of the box. I LOVE Betty Crocker for that!!!!!!!!
