I know that unfortunately you already have your answer, but I thought I would post the Rolo ingredients from the Nestle Canada website.

"Ingredients

GLUCOSE-FRUCTOSE (FROM WHEAT AND/OR CORN), SUGAR, MILK INGREDIENTS, COCOA BUTTER, MODIFIED PALM AND PALM KERNEL OIL, UNSWEETENED CHOCOLATE, LACTOSE, SOYA LECITHIN, SALT, POLYGLYCEROL POLYRICINOLEATE, SODIUM CARBONATE, ARTIFICIAL FLAVOUR.

MADE OF EQUIPMENT THAT ALSO PROCESSES WHEAT."

I am impressed with the new Nestle site. They didn't used to have ingredients listed.

You had my hopes up there for a second, but when I went in there, the list indeed say Rolos, but the list was last updated August 2000. It's almost 7 years out of date..... I went to the Nestle's website, sure enough, wheat is listed right on the ingredients in the website, but not on the packaging.... :angry:

Oh, no! Does this mean Rolos in the US are gluteny also????

I was on the Canadian Nestle site. You should check the American site to make sure.

That's really annoying that the ingredients on the package are different then the website ingredients. I realize the dates of each list could be different, but it's still annoying.

I know this question is off the subject of candy, but does anyone know if Gogurt (made by Yoplait) is safe? Also are Capri-sun drinks ok.? My 12 year old son is on week two of his gluten-free diet (husband is on year two). Unfortunately my son is very picky and my food choices are dwindling by the day.

I've never gone on a message board or forum before. I've searched this site for 1/2 hour trying to find out how to start a new topic with no luck, so I figured I would just continue on one with a somewhat similar topic. I just hope it will show up.

Thanks

This is a great site. There are lots of helpful people here and hopefully you'll find lots of info.

Sorry, but I don't know the gluten-free status of those products. I'm sure someone else will post.

I think both Capri Suns and gogurts are safe in the us. I think they are both made by Kraft. Kraft is a company that will clearly label wheat, barley, rye. Just read the label to see if the Kraft product is safe.

Hi. I went to the Kraft website and saw exactly what you said. They clearly label contents of their ingredients. Capri Sun is safe. I'm still working on the go-gurt.

Thanks and the board is a wonderful tool!

Welcome, Rosy!

At the top right of each thread's first page are two "buttons." One says, "add reply," and the other says, "new topic." Hope that helps!

Thanks. My problem was finding the "new topic" button. I think I've got it now.

Hi Angel here again at the library....and again forgot my reading glasses. I am fiarly sure that ROLO's

in the USA are gluten free. I have ingested them with no problem. I mean, isn't chocolate my booby

prize for being Celiac? I will check when I go to the store today but again I don't have the aforementioned forgotten reading glasses with me. And don't know when I can get back here to post. And now I have to go and buy some, thank you! : )

Thanks alot. I will check the Kraft website.

I work at General Mills where they make GoGurt but am posting as someone who has to check for gluten free items all the time. They have most nutritional/ingredient information listed online.

If I remember, I think Yoplait yogurts are all gluten free and are now labeled. Not trying to promote any brands, just wanting to share a really useful site to find ingredient information.
