Hershey Canada Lowney Cherry Blossom

Recommended Posts

Today I was given a Lowney Cherry Blossom which is made by hershey's Canada company. It looks and smells SO good! I'm needing to find out if it is gluten-free or not? I'm really hoping someone can help me out a little :D

My understanding is that Hershey will not hide gluten. It will be clearly disclosed in the ingredient list using one of the words: wheat, rye, barley, or oat. If none of these words appear in the ingredient list, enjoy! I don't eat many sweets, and haven't had a Cherry Blossom in about 20 years, but I do recall enjoying them when I was young.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!

Ahhhh a Canadian fella.......!!!! I am happy to hear that. I wasn't sure of the Canadian policy from Hersheys. So are these Cherry Blossoms good? They sure SMELL good!

Thanks for the quick response!
