Hershey's Cookie 'n' Cream Drops - Gluten Free?
0

3 posts in this topic

Hi I'm in Alberta, Canada and just bought a package of Hershey's Cookies 'n' Cream drops. I was super excited to see that there was no gluten in them! However, when I was looking on the American site the ingredients were much different. Does Hershey's Canada produce things differently from in the States?

Here are the Canadian ingredients:

Sugar, Milk Ingredients, Modified Palm Oil and Vegetable Oil (Shea, Sunflower and/or safflower), Corn Syrup Solids, Corn Starch, Cocoa Powder, Modified Corn Starch, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Soy Lecithin, Gum Acacia, Confectioner's Glaze, Salt, Artificial Flavour, Tocopherols, Polygycerol, Polyricinoleat, Color. ALLERGY INFORMATION: MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS/TREE NUTS

Here are the American Ingredients:

Ingredients: Sugar, Vegetable Oil (Cocoa Butter, Palm, Shea, Sunflower, Canola and/or Safflower Oil), Nonfat Milk, Corn Syrup, Enriched Wheat Flour (Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, and Folic Acid), Milk Fat, Contains 2% or Less of: Cocoa Processed with Alkali), Whey (Milk), Soy Lecithin, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Chocolate, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Sodium Bicarbonate, Salt, Confectioner's Glaze, Gum Acacia, Tocopherols to Maintain Freshness, PGPR - Emulsifier, Artificial Color (Blue 2 Lake, Red 40 Lake, Yellow 5 Lake).

Someone please help me with this. I would really like to find out if these are actually gluten free in Canada.

Thanks.

Hello, and welcome.

Some products vary in their ingredients from country to country. Hershey and Campbell's have very different ingredients in Canada than in the US.

That said, I don't see anything in the Canadian ingredient list that could be hiding gluten.

In Canada, wheat is a "priority allergen" and will be disclosed on the label. Barley can hide in both Canada and the US, but none of the listed ingredients suggest to me that it is present. My take is that the Canadian product is gluten-free.

Someone could start an awesome business shipping us gluten-free Canadian versions of things, and shipping them Northern Folk gluten-free versions of our foods. So curious about the ingredients.
