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 ! http://www.celiac.co...bury-mini-eggs/

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.

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 100F.

I adore(d) the little foil wrapped Easter egg chocolates, and was heartbroken to see them causing such a ruckus. However, I think it's funny that most of the Marshmallow Peeps are gluten free. The Just Born / Marshmallow Peeps site even has a recipe page where they have the various things garnished with the marshmallow ducks, bunnies, etc. If you want to really see something crazy, google "peeps diorama" for the marshmallow sculpturing contests.

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:http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/78615-homemade-cadbury-creme-eggs/). 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.

This one was King sized. :huh:

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.
