These smarties are indeed the sugary tablet, but they do say made in canada. So, are they gluten free?

I'm coming in late to this thread, but the thought that US Smarties might be gluten-free has made my day. I used to be practically addicted to them. Anything white and powdery seems suspect to me now, so I never even thought to look at the ingredients. <_< I figured that the addiction aspect was an allergen addiction type thing.

Okay, had to do the research thing. All US Smarties products are gluten-free. They resell them to repackagers who may have items that are not gluten-free, thus making the gluten-free status questionable, but any Smarties products with the UPC starting with 0 11206 is gluten-free and manufactured in a gluten-free facility.

The USA Smarties gives me the impression of what a "placebo" (fake medicine pill) would look like or those little pills you used to get in your childhood "nurse or doctor" kit toy.

I puffy heart American Smarties <3 :wub:

I also puffy hearted the Canadian/British Smarties, but alas, our relationship is over. They went the way of the twiglet for me, stupid gluten :(

Great, now I have to go buy some of those yummy placebos :P

Do they have pixie stix in Canada? Because smarties are kind of like pixie stix pressed into a tablet
