Hi Mark,

Welcome to the board! I posted a similar question last week and did not get a great response :( What I did find out is that Russel Stovers chocolates are gluten-free, with the exception of smores and cookies, but that it is processed on the same equipment as wheat. I am not sure if I am willing to risk the cc.

However, it looked like some of the Dove valentines and hershey valentines boxes were okay.

Your girlfriend is lucky to have a boyfriend who is looking out for her health.

Hey everybody,

My girlfriend found out she had celiac two months ago so this is the first time I have to buy her chocolate and worry if there is gluten in it. I

I posted on the other thread that I found the ORGANIC boxes of Whitman's and Russell Stover chocolates are marked "Gluten Free" right on the front of the package! I had to buy them, and they are quite good. I too was missing the yummy boxed chocolates, but both Whiman's and Russel Stover's regular (not the organic) are processed on shared equipment with wheat, so this is a good alternative.

Good luck!

I got sick twice from Russel Stover's candy (the kind that said it is processed on the same equip. as wheat on the box). I would NOT eat it again.

On that note, Reeses Peanut Butter Hearts are gluten-free. My husband has been instructed to get me approximately 10 lbs of reeses peanut butter hearts. Yum!

Whole Foods has some lovely exotic chocolate collections. They're kinda pricey though. :(
