Today I had a Reese's and I had heard they were gluten free. About an hour after I had extreme d and got really tired. Now I've had a belly ache all day :angry: Has anyone else had this from Reese's? :(

I think several people have had problems.

They say they are safe except the seasonal and shaped. I assume shared lines? http://www.thehershe...px#/Gluten-Free

It may just be too processed a food - especially if you're at the beginning of gluten-free. I like them but I don't eat them now. Just too much "junk" in them for me to process. I may be ok with one bit no more than that.

I am pretty sensitive and I have never had an issue with them. I usually get the regular size and haven't had the 'seasonal' ones. If your new to a diet be aware that it isn't always gluten and even if it is it isn't always the last thing you ate as reactions can be delayed by up to as much as a few days.

I eat them regularly and haven't had any problems. I have had a few seasonal ones but always check the label first.

I've only been completely gluten free for a few months now so maybe it was too much for y stomach to handle. Although I do fine with ice cream and stuff but maybe because buyers only has normal ingredients. I'm gonna have to be careful

I have no celiac disease issues with them, but the sugar in the chocolate forces me to limit consumtion. I eat them as a treat from time to time.

It's really weird what can set you off....

I pigged out on gluten-free Halloween candy last year. Was great, til it wasn't.

You'll find your crutch and addiction. Mine was Talenti gelato. OMG. I should buy stock....

Was it a special holiday edition shape? They do add gluten to different shapes for the holidays. I bought 3 bags of holiday bells about 3 years ago. :o

ALWAYS READ THE LABEL!

I'm not sure what's different with the holiday shaped ones but nothing is different with the holiday ones in pretty wrappers. They're just the same old thing from the same old plant with prettier foil. I was very bad this year and couldn't resist temptation when I saw on clearance after Easter one of the giant eggs for a buck. They're usually like $4 and I just couldn't help myself. I'm lucky it didn't make me sick, especially since I ate it in all over the span of about 24 hours! :blink: So far though I haven't gotten sick from any Reese's, they're my only chocolate indulgence that isn't fancy pants important stuff.
