I don't eat "mini" anything since I read of companies using what they call "run off" chocolate which has been previously poured over other candy. Seems to be more a problem with mini sized candy from what I have read. Not gonna test that theory myself since every once in a while I see a post like yours where something supposedly gluten free made someone ill.

If you don't want to avoid Hershey's, you might just avoid the mini's.

I do fine with the regular or KING size Hershey's ;)

Oh, hey, it's nearly getting time of year for the annual Easter Candy Discussion, isn't it !

Featuring the famous Cadbury Egg Thread from 2008 !

Hershey's hasn't been consistent with identifying or confirming with a degree of certainty the status of their gluten content since they moved manufacturing out of country. This is a shame since the kisses and the hershey bars used to be an easy to find, go- to item for me, but if they aren't going to admit what's in the flavorings sometimes, they're on the "eat at risk" list.

This is an AUSTRALIAN list of cadbury status products http://www.cadbury.com.au/Products/Gluten-Information.aspx

It's sort of roulette with the Hershey bars. I've probably eaten a few since others started complaining, but I have to be careful because I'm not a really bad reactor to gluten. I tend to stash Ghiradelli's in the house, and the peanut M&M's, and the Enjoy Life chocolate chips, so I am having less excuses to eat the other stuff.

I am really hoping M&Ms stays on the good list, as they DO NOT MELT and can be eaten while driving in the summer. Normal summer highs here are around 100

I'm not sure where you're from, but in Canada, Cadbury makes Cadbury Mini Eggs, and Hershey doesn't. Hershey is a completely different company (Oh Henry, Reese's, etc.). Did you call Hershey or Cadbury about the eggs? What were the ingredients?

In the US, Cadbury is licensed by Hershey.

I came across this recipe for Homemade Cadbury Creme Eggs (posted here:). It looks delicious, and may help curb a craving or two. I'm going to try and make them for Easter (when I can shove most of them off to nephews/nieces instead of eating the entire thing myself. ;) )

LOL meaning you people talking about chocolate are bad. Not the chocolate itself. Although there are better chocolates in the world, this chocolate I got from Russia for example was AWESOME. But the the generic stuff is ok too. Chocolate in itself is a food group, so it's all good. :P Hehe.

The other day I decided to go ahead and try the Cadbury Royal Dark Mini Eggs. I could not find any definitive information on if they were gluten free, but thought they were too good to pass up!

However, now I wish I had. I am experiencing all the effects of eating gluten and that is the only thing different I did with my diet. Safe to say, I will be staying away from cadbury products. Maybe they are ok, but this time they definitely werent't for me.

They are delicious and surprisingly simple to make. Such a fun thin to make with little ones especially!

I just got very sick. This morning I ate Cadbury mini eggs while filling Easter baskets. According to the ingredients, they should have been OK, but I can't think of any other reason I am so sick right now. The only other thing that could have caused a problem is the Starburst jelly beans, but I thought they were gluten-free also. I am kicking myself for doing this. How could I have eaten them without checking online first? Stupid, stupid, stupid.

I eat the mini eggs by the bag full, and then I feel sick. Not from the gluten, but rather from the volume :blink:

      Hi again Richie, A lot of coeliacs have a problem with coffee, maybe you do too. It could explain the shakes you describe. I am sensitive to coffee, and haven't touched caffeine since last summer. (The detox lasted for 10 days and it wasn't pleasant, so if you ever give it up, do it gradually).  Sometimes when you're intolerant to something, when you have it, it makes you feel 'better' but it doesn't last and usually end up worse, it's like a drug - and in the case of caffeine it is. I also take a daily probiotic (gluten free and dairy free etc)., which is good for healing the gut.

      Cristiana and Flowerqueen, I haven't been officially diagnosed as Celiac but I had a DNA test in March 2015 which revealed I had the Celiac gene on both sides so it was advised that I have a test to see if I did have it. I didn't but I went off gluten immediately and haven't "knowingly" eaten it since. Before the DNA test I didn't have the nausea and trembling type feelings that I do now but I occasionally got the shortness of breath which I used to put down to being a smoker. (I quit almost 16 years ago) Anyway, this morning I woke with the nausea feeling, the trembling, loss of appetite, feeling of doom again but it happens so intermittently. I do have some unavoidable stress in my life all of a sudden so maybe it's all connected some how. But on the plus side my bowel movements have returned to normal and I go often especially after waking and having coffee. (Oh, and Cristiana don't worry about tmi with me. You would have to try pretty hard to offend me and nobody has done it yet. haha) I always think the worse to. The internet and Google are great but information overload becomes a real possibility creating some frightening scenarios. It's just interesting that the coffee with the MCT Oil (Brain Octane is the actual name) and butter makes me start feeling better and the nausea, trembling, anxiety seem to be extinguished by it but coffee with low fat milk doesn't although I do get more energy from it. I did read somewhere that MCT Oil was good for gut health though and if I had to describe it it would be like it just smooths over all the bad stuff with a nice soft lining.  It was recommended in my DNA test that I have more fats in my diet and low processed foods but I occasionally have gluten-free biscuits, gluten-free ice-cream (my true weakness) and gluten-free weet-bix. I've checked most of these items ingredients and they are pretty good. There is a lot of gluten free rubbish out there though which I completely avoid. Thanks GFinDC for your reply. I was going to speak to my Naturopath when I see her about Immune Health. My plan usually involves the Liver Tonic I mentioned above and heavy on the L-Glutamine which, apparently, is supposed to be excellent for gastrointestinal health but I'm not going to supplement with anything just yet until I get my blood work done and see if it reveals any deficiencies. I'm suspecting Iron though. Because I've had recent tests all coming back good I'm thinking a possible scenario would be a die-off effect I've heard of where all the bad bacteria have been killed off but your body can't rid itself of them quick enough so you actually feel or get worse before you get better. That's where the detox strategy comes in and I'm assuming replacing them with Good Bacteria via Probiotics. Again, this is what I have read in the past but it does seem to make sense in some cases. I do feel better in having found these forums though.  
    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      You are doing well.  We didn't have a "normal" tTG for 6 years and were also very strict.  Kiddo was dx with hypothyroid as well and tTG fell a lot after getting on meds for that but still didn't normalize.  Finally cam down within the last 6 months (this after a trip to THE Celiac Dr. several years ago).  I wish we had done a DGP much earlier and I had pushed for that sooner.  I would start there and see what happens.     Sounds like you're doing everything right though. Sometimes it just takes time. 
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Remember that you have to be eating a normal gluten diet for the testing so don't cut back & don't stop eating it. Make sure they do the full, current celiac panel: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
