Hey guys:

Can't remember who was doing research on chapstick, celiac3270 maybe???

I found a web site called www.clanthompson.com, and they list chapstick (cherry, mint and regular) that are gluten-free.

It is a private web, family, with six members with celiac disease. Don't know anything about them. They do have a pocket grocery list of products names that are gluten-free. (also a small fee to purchase them).

Any history on authentisity (boy am I stretching my spelling range!!!)??

(when I was young there was a short avenue of educators that thought "sight" reading was the way to go. It did not last long, but I was in the "not last long kid". Therefore, if I cannot visualize the word I cannot spell--- during the late 50's.
Excuses, but legit. Bet I have a witness out there.

Back to the new found web site, anyone know anything about this?

BTW---The Hurricane is projected to affect us. Will keep you posted if any are interested. Maybe cross our roofs. Not a Katrina, but a pain-in-*** (nothing new to any of us, huh???)

OK, I'm gonna die if someone says chapstick has gluten in it! I am addicted to chapstick, it's so dry in the hospital where I work I feel like my lips will fall right off!

Just called them and they asked which kinds I wanted to know about since they have to look up each one individually (they have over 15 kinds!!). So I just asked about the basic ones - called Classics - that is, the original, mint, cherry, strawberry, etc. They said of the classics are gluten-free. This info used to be on this website (under gluten-free mainstream products), but now, they charge you to look at the list. Nice. Only willing to help out people for free for so long.....
