Reeses Crispy Crunch

Is the delicious, life fulfilling Reeses Crispy Crunch safe? I did not notice any issues on the label; however, the Nestle site does not list it as gluten-free. I found one post on here where someone mentioned it, but nothing else. I did contact the company and am waiting for a response, but curious if someone already knows.

I don't know whether it's safe or not, but just the words "crispy crunch" would warm me off. B)

supposedly the crispy crunch is from a peanut candy vs bread/cracker. Seems to be safe. Hope they confirm it.

The joys of a non-answer. Assuming the label is accurate, they should be okay..

Hi Chad,

Thank you for contacting The Hershey Company.

For your convenience, we have provided a list of current products that have been fully evaluated and qualify as gluten free using standards proposed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This list of gluten-free confections is available on our Web site: http://www.thehersheycompany.com/brands/special-nutrition.aspx#/Gluten-Free

Please note, this list is not all inclusive as we have other gluten-free confections. The best way to determine if our products contain a gluten ingredient is to read our product label. This label includes an accurate, current listing of the ingredients in our products. Because, on occasion, the list of ingredients can change, we strongly encourage you to check the ingredient label on the package each time before you make a purchase.

If you should have questions concerning additional products, please call us at 800-468-1714. A representative will be glad to assist you with any questions you may have.

We appreciate your loyalty as a consumer.

Um, actually, that is what I consider the best possible answer. They told you that if the product contained gluten, the label would disclose the fact. No worries about info from their call center or web site reflecting a newer or older version.

The best way to determine if our products contain a gluten ingredient is to read our product label. This label includes an accurate, current listing of the ingredients in our products.

As long as they label clearly. It is interesting to me though that they have a list of gluten-free items but it really only has a few items listed.

The products listed are most likely tested to be at or under the 20ppm of gluten (as the proposed US standard). The other products that do not contain gluten are not tested, and not listed as gluten free. You will see this frequently with many companies.

I read labeled and if there is no gluten listed, I have no problem consuming that product.

For those more sensitive or concerns, I would recommend that they buy Certified Gluten Free Products.

The question that I keep coming up with has to do with the "significance" of the usage of the word(s) "ingredient(s)"... I keep seeing similar disclaimers/statements from companies regarding their products not having gluten in the "ingredients"...

My question is about processing...the facility/equipment....is it used for gluten products? I read about CC, in here, so often that I'm kind of surprised it hasn't come up in this thread...

Contact the company and get first hand information. :)

    • SO HUNGRY. All. The. Time.
      Over my 6 gluten-free years, I have endured this "Starving Syndrome" several times.  Actually, I have lost count.  I am 5'4" and frequently eat more than my 6'4" husband.  My weight has gone from a low of 93 lbs. to my current high of 105 lbs.  I eat as much as I possibly can.   I agree about the fats helping me to feel full.  I'm beginning to test out the "grain hypothesis" as mentioned above. It seems (feels) to me that when I go through a major healing spurt, my body just wants more food!  No idea if this is actually what is happening.  Still, I have come to look at it as a "good thing" when my body wants lots of food.  I just relax and try to give my SMART body what it wants.
    • I got WELL!!
      Update on my progress: 1.  By thorough and consistent evaluation of my food diary (every item ingested for 6 years); I've finally figured out that both dairy and nightshades cause me PAIN!  I had tried eliminating these previously; but it was no help.  I tried again anyway...and IT WORKED!!  Maybe because I'm healthier now?  Never was lactose intolerant; but BOTH these items cause me PAIN!  All over, wish-I-were-dead PAIN! 2.  Just completed 2 courses of Xifaxin.  One in November and one in February.  The first course helped some with the Buddha Belly.  This second course helped a lot!  Fingers crossed that things will only continue to improve.  (I actually think it may be helping reduce the fatigue!  But I won't mention it as I don't want to jinx it!) 3.  Added back rice.  Had been grain-free for 3 years.  Seems fine and maybe even beneficial.  I'm pursuing adding more variety to my diet.  Looking at amaranth and buckwheat.  Plan to discuss diet with nutritionist after my next GI appt.  to get tips on this.  (Had to postpone this appt. due to bad headcold--first in many years!) 4.  Plan to discuss changing levothyroxine brand at next internist appt. in a couple weeks.  Currently taking Tirosint--and love it.  But...investigating other options like Levoxyl since I may have felt better on that.  Sadly, Pfizer was NOT helpful the last 2 times I called them to discuss gluten content/contamination.  Mylan generic was VERY helpful!  Choice to be determined.  Goal is to reduce fatigue. 5.  Continuing with exercise, meditation, drawing, etc.  Paying attention to mindset and emotional calm.  Optimism is my friend. 6.  On a humorous note, my hairline continues to advance!  I always had the highest of foreheads.  Ha!  Now my hairline is moving, from all directions, closer to my eyes!  i actually have developed a widow's peak!  This is too funny.  Sixty-six years old and my hairline keeps getting thicker and more extensive!  Mother Nature toys with me! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to everyone!!   Remember to love yourself!
    • I got WELL!!
      Posterboy, Many, many thanks for providing such complete information.  Your efforts won't go to waste.  I will look into each item you mentioned. Not sure the iodine is an issue as I no longer have a thyroid.  And too much iodine can aggravate my intermittent rashes.  (Never was tested for DH.  Didn't see the point as I was already diagnosed with Celiac.) Thanks again!
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      Thanks all for the information! Still waiting to hear back on what sort of follow up the doctor wants to do, but this information has been very helpful in the meantime. 
    • Negative tests, possible celiac?
      You could ask for the celiac panel again and see if being gluten-free has reduced the AGA levels. That would seem to indicate that being gluten-free helped. Some other people have said doctors have at least noted suspected celiac of one of the numbers came down after being gluten-free. Also you should ask to see your endoscopy results and see if elevated IELs were noted as that can indicate celiac even if gut damage was missed.
