Hi.

For those who love chocolate and are supersensitive, here is my Enjoy Life fudge recipe that people (all people, not only those with celiac) BEG me to make- not too sweet and, oh so tasty. I am super duper sensitive and eat this every day with no problems.

HERE:

I take a "bread pan" and oil with olive oil.
2 Pkgs Enjoy Life chips into a saucepan to melt on low heat stirring
throw in about 1/3 to 1/2 stick of butter and about 1/3 cup lowfat milk
mix together til melted
(If you like, throw in about 3/4 cups of Planter's South Beach Diet nut mix or nuts of your choice.) Mix in and pour into pan
throw in fridge with foil on top.
Total time spent: about 10 minutes
EAT!

I really love Dove dark chocolate and haven't had any sort of reaction to it (knock on wood). Their company has said that all Dove chocolates do not contain gluten. And thank goodness! I don't know how I would have gotten through gluten withdrawal without it! :P

Twirls, by Cadbury, just chocolate they are really good, intense chocolate hit! Over in England this is what i eat and they are suitable for celiacs. Its the only chocolate i dont react too, and no soy either which is a bonus for me!

I eat reeses all the time with no problem. Watch out of the heart shaped ones though because they contain gluten.


I kept getting sick after eating Reese's and heard that they are not made on a dedicated line. I also found this to be true for Snicker's (made on the same line as Milkyways which contain malt). I've found a couple of brands at Whole Foods labelled gluten-free which have not given me any symptoms.

I recently contacted them and Reese's cups definitely cannot be trusted. The woman I spoke with said they are not made on a dedicated line and agred there is always a risk of gluten, no matter which package (in Canada at least). She certainly was not at all hopeful! I won't chance it.

I know most of the people on here eat Snickers all the time without a problem, but I ate my very first TREAT last Friday that was not plain old pure food or the enjoy life chocolate in 5 months....yup, a Snickers bar and I was "glutened" for 5 days...anxiety, fog, bowel stuff, insomnia..and HORRIBLE joint pain that made me cry ..it all came roaring back...such a bummer and I'll never try one again!! :( :angry:

Enjoy life chocolate chips and bars are definitely safe, and I am also super sensitive. I generally avoid mainstream products like Snickers or Reese's, as they are usually contaminated.

Maybe some people can tolerate the low level of CC, but not me, I guess..boo hoo....ah well, another lesson learned! <_<

truth is?? It did not even taste that good anyway! :blink:

Just like there are different levels of sensitivity among celiacs, there appears to be different levels of sensitivity among super sensitive celiacs. What is definitely safe for one will get another. Enjoy Life chocolate chips get me too, yet I was able to eat the chocolate that a friend made. Unfortunately, she hasn't been able to get uncontaminated starting materials recently.

I have learned so much about this lately. My cousin scarfs down Snickers without an issue...me? 5 days of ugly symptoms...as you say, everyone's different.
I tried a plan dark chocolate bar (85%)from a health food store (no soy lecithin, no milk) and it was okay...the sugar made me "buzz" pretty good :lol: but no "gluten willies" as I call them.
Hope your friend can mix you up a batch of sweetness soon!

Amedei chocolate seems to work for me. Possible CC from nuts and milk but not gluten or soy and they taste wonderful. Unfortunately they are kind of expensive.

It seems like heaps of the Cadbury chocolates in the UK don't have soy lecithin in them. Is this true? :unsure:

I just bought a Taza 80% Dark Chocolate bar the other day. "Cacao beans (Dominican Republic), cane sugar, cocoa butter, whole vanilla beans. All ingredients certified organic. May contain traces of nuts."

It was DELICIOUS. Kind of grainy as someone else mentioned but it wasn't in a BAD way. And rather than a bitter edge, it almost had a sour tang mixed in with the sweet and chocolatey. What is wonderful is that there is a lady here in town who sells it. She said next time I need some to just call her and she'll deliver right here to my shop.

I think she's going to get a lot of my business, and those 31 pounds I've lost over the past 10 months will start creeping back in.

So what?!! :lol:

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

I am sensitive to below 10 ppm. I reliably have diarrhea from Lindt 85% and Chocolove dark chocolate. I can have Endangered Species chocolate and Trader Joe's chocolate chips (NOT their pound plus) without getting sick. I also do fine with Taza (the local boston chocolate that is less processed).
