My youngest daughter who isn't gluten-free got some Bugles original. I was reading the ingredients and I said "they dont have wheat in them anymore". But the futher I was reading down on the bag it said may contain wheat and milk.

Here are the ingredients:
Degermed yellow corn meal
Coconut Oil
Sugar
Salt
Baking Soda
Freshness preserved by BHT

So what am I missing where is the Wheat and Milk. Could it be a cross contamination issue or do they process Bugles on a wheat line. Could you pleas weigh in on this. Thanks

On the General Mills website it lists wheat flour & non- fat milk as ingredients of plain Bugles. Then says " contains milk and wheat". Tried to copy it but it didn't work.

I saw on your other post about KS doctor. I'm in KS, too. KC area.

My guess is that they are processed on the same lines as products containing wheat and milk. So likely to be cross contaminated. They were one of my daughter's favorite foods. I think they are nasty.

I haven't looked at a bag recently. I know they did contain wheat. They may have reformulated. General Mills has done that on some of their products (as in the chex cereals) so they may have done it here, too. General Mills will list any gluten ingredients in their ingredient list. Go by the packaging vs the website . . . and you could always call them. I would guess the "may contains" implies a shared line.


We loved bugles . . . always put them on our fingertips and pretended they were fingernails . . . sometimes pretended we were witches and cackled . . . then ate them off our fingers, one at a time. :)

LOL Bugles were my favorite food as a kid. And I did the fingernail thing too. I guess girls are all pretty much the same ;)

When I saw this photo, I thought it truly represented my life prior to being gluten-free. It was like being rooted in place trying to survive a Category 5. Now that I am gluten-free, I feel like I just might make it :)
