Somewhere I read that the eggs were not gluten-free like the regular shaped reese peanut butter cups. At the store tonight the ingredients read the same so I wonder if they both are gluten-free. Anyone know? I am going to call them tomorrow.

These are made by Hershey and Hershey will name anything that has wheat/gluten in them or made in a facility that does wheat products. When the eggs first came out I bought a bag, boy was I sick from them. Of course I read the bag and it never mentioned wheat but a week later the new bags were out and they did read wheat. Also the Caramilk eggs have wheat in them.

So yes, these do have wheat in them, unfortunately. However, Turtles and Turtles eggs are wheat/gluten-free.

There are two types of Reese's p-nut butter egg:

1. SAFE -- the ones that are shaped like an egg, but flat (like a 2-dimensional egg). They come in two sizes, in predominantly yellow wrappers. The smaller of the two is akin to a fun size candy bar and comes in bags. The larger come in six-packs

2. NOT SAFE -- the ones that are about twice the size of a pnut M&M and that shape (like a three-dimensional egg). They are individually wrapped in foil and come in bags. They clearly say wheat flour in the ingredients.

This blog has pictures of each: Reese's eggs

The first one is safe, and the second is not.

I hope this helps! Can you tell I have a Reese's problem?

I have never seen the first two eggs up here. It was the ones on the bottom that come in the bag that got me.

These are my all time favorite easter candy. I'm so excited they are safe!!!

I got really sick around Halloween because of some of the candy I ate. I read that some of the miniature versions of the different candies do in fact have gluten in them even though their larger version do not. Makes it kind of confusing hershey people.
