To the best of my knowledge, yes they are gluten-free. I eat them occasionally.

I'm not so sure about that. There are different types of Hershey's Kisses, first of all; and the Hershey's Canada website does not have any allergen info readily available as far as I can see.

I have read the ingredients lists, and have yet to find any variant of the Kisses that lists something that concerns me. Wheat is one of the ten "priority allergens" prescribed by Health Canada which must be disclosed if present.
