Problems With Jelly Bellys

Recommended Posts

Some packages of jelly bellies used to come from possibly contaminated lines.  I'm not sure if this is still the case, but a couple of years ago the big bags (or was it boxes) of jelly bellies from Costco said there may be wheat in the product whereas the small packages did not.  I'm up in Canada and our packaged food MUST state on the label if the product could have been contaminated with wheat and gluten.  The big bag/box said it but the little one didn't... It just came down to line safety since none of the ingredients contained gluten.

 

I eat jelly bellies as long as it is not labelled with a chance of cc.

 

All that being said, my guess is that it was the sweeteners or sugar too.  That can cause fatigue, GI issues and a headache for me if I have too much.... which I usually do with those.  LOL  ;)

We toured the JellyBelly Factory up near San Francisco a few years ago. The actual line is dedicated to the beans, but there is wheat used for other products used within the facility. Nothing even remotely close to the bean line. I think Costco states that it is made in a shared facilty. We buy the Costco version (much cheaper) and pass them off as Bertie Bott's beans (Harry Potter!). No glutenings here. Is there any corn in those beans? I can not find our recent purchase. Kid has hidden them from her father!

If it is the mixed variety might it include licorice favors too? Isn't the licorice flavor unsafe?

No, the flavor should be fine.  It is the actual licorice candy (like Twizzlers) that is made with wheat.

I do not know about Brach's jelly beans or other brands. Just the Jelly Bellys.

Fran always be sure to read labels. Good and Plenty have wheat as do most licorice. Unfortunately as I am a big black licorice fan. I think if you go to the Jelly Belly web site you can order bags of just one flavor.  

I get Gimbals jelly beans on a regular basis. They are produced in an allergen free plant. I get a couple Bumble Bean bags every time I find them at Big Lots. Those are Gimbals irregulars and are discounted.

If you are unsure, you can always google the product along with the phrase "gluten-free", and that will take you to the info you want.  Try to use the company's site if you can.

 

I did a quick check and Good and Plenty's candies are NOT gluten-free.  http://www.thehersheycompany.com/brands/good-and-plenty/licorice-candy.aspx Wheat flour is the second ingredient.   :(  Hershey is quite good about labeling their products.

 

Jelly Belly is gluten-free: http://www.jellybelly.com/general-facts Just read the label every time on all foods.

Thisismyusername I didn't mean to butt in on your post but I am very grateful for the licorice flavor jelly bean ideas and I do hope you start feeling better soon. Thanks everyone.

For those of you interested, it turns out I react to corn (and corn syrup and corn starch and so on...) the same way I react to gluten. It took me a while to figure this out, but now that I am off gluten and corn (and dairy, which apparently is a common issue), I am feeling MUCH better. I just wanted to mention this so people who aren't corn-sensitive shouldn't worry that there is a Jelly Belly issue, and in case it helps someone else corn-intolerant to figure out what's going on.
