hershey's special dark chocolate bars

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know for sure if Hershey's special dark chocolate bars are gluten free or not? The Hershey's company doesn't include them in their list of gluten free products. But the special dark nuggets, chips and syrup are included. What is different about the bars that would make them not gluten free? Thought I'd ask here before contacting them directly. Thanks!

I'd be really interested in the answer, as I miss them!  I believe it's something to do with an emulsifier that's used.  Please let us know if you get an answer from Hershey's -- as for me, I won't try them if they're not on the list or we get confirmation.

Not all their products are manufactured in the same location or line.  You need to read the label first.  Heed the advice of their website.  Contact them directly.  

Bottom line?  If you are in doubt and are concerned -- don't eat it.  That is my motto.  Really, is chocolate is a treat and is not necessary for life.  What?  Did I say that?  Me, who adores chocolate?  I eat Endangered Species which is certified gluten-free?  Expensive yes.  But I am diabetic too, so a little piece is all I get!  ?

You know what I like? Is Paleo Chocolate bars. All that's in them is Cocoa Powder, Honey, Coconut Oil, and Vanilla Extract.

Not quite as "good" as the hershey's special dark chocolates but a really yummy substitute that's very healthy.
