M&m's Off The gluten-free Call In List

Recommended Posts

hey guys u might want to breath now...on the delphi forums i posted the same concern....someone called and talked to the company directly here is the response..

" I just talked to customer service rep at the Mars corporation. ALL M&Ms ARE gluten free. There is no change in status. You can call this number 1-800-222-0293 and hit "5" and you'll get a real live person to talk to (took me a while to get that, lol)

She appologized up and down for the "glitches" they are having. First, the are redoing their systems and have had alot of complaints and problems both on their phone system and the websites - the information is being updated and many people are getting inaccurate information or error messages...

To make a long story short: ALL M&Ms are still on their gluten free list and are gluten free. They no longer make the "crispy" ones ('cause I said, "Even your crispy ones - I wasn't sure if they were gluten free or not, actually). The crispy ones are still on their website, however, but they don't make them anymore. Go figure.

Enjoy."

PHEW!!!!! I was dreading having to tell my child that yet another one of her favorite TREATS is not safe... Thank you for posting this info and I will happily continue eating M&M's (btw I've never had any problems with them)

It could be a reaction to the milk. My husband used to get really sick each time he ate them and then we found out he was casein intolerant also, so that explained it for him.

Yep--in my case, I suspected the milk--like I said, I usually eat dark chocolate, and stay away from dairy altogether. I had a craving for them, and ate quite a few. I only felt queasy, not like a gluten reaction, so that's why I didn't even think of the candy until I read that they might not be safe anymore and thought mmm...

If only they'd make - and sell somewhere other than M&M World in Vegas, for a limited time - dark chocolate M&M's for those of us who can't have dairy. I'd love some M&M's!

I am glad someone got an answer because they have not yet answered my emails.

So in view of the fact that they did not answer my email immediately I am going to sue them. Also I am going to sue all the dumb people I had to talk to on the phone, the city for not plowing the roads before I left for work and all the dumb drivers who cut me off and drove like sausages. I am going to sue all the men on my street for not rushing out to meet me when I came home, carry my bags and carry me to my door. I am preparing to sue everyone tomorrow also for assorted things.

*getting up from the floor where I've been pounding my fists and kicking my feet*

Ok, I brought M & M's for everyone to start your wknd off on a good note *passing the bowl*

Geez it's a wonder we're not all old and wrinkled with all the drama that goes on in this Celiac world of ours.
