Ok, someplace I read M&M's were ok........ and to treat myself I bought me a bag, yeah I read the ingredients and have since re-read it as well and see nothing to get nervous about...

yesterday I had maybe 1/4 cup and last night had major upset tummy which I figured was from CC when cleaning out the hubby's gluten items in the freezer...

today I again grabbed about another 1/4 cup full for breakfast...... and it happened again... I hadn't eaten anything else so it HAS to be them am I missing something?

p.s. they were the regular old m&m's no nuts or nuffin just chocolate and colored candy shell

In the US M&M's are gluten free except the crunchy ones. I seem to recall that in Australia they are not.

Have no idea why they bothered me 2 days in a row.... they were the regular old plain kind.... and I opened the fresh bag on day 1 and was the first to grab a handful so I cant blame this one on my hubby sticking his contaminated hands into my treat....

but regardless he inherited the remaining of the bag :(

I live in the Chicago suburbs, and last year I bought a bag of the Christmas M&Ms and wheat was listed on the ingrediants. I was totally shocked bc I had never seen that before. Maybe the holiday ones are made different? :huh: Im confused.

I had the same thing until I discovered that it was the soy in the candy that was making me feel sick. Maybe you're sensitive to soy?

Happy Holidays!

Hold up a sec - I just read the package of Xmas M&Ms that I have - I don't seen wheat on the label anywhere. There is corn maltodextrin, soy, but no wheat. It also only mentions possible peanut contamination as far as allergen info goes. ??????

Sorry, maybe I wasnt being clear in my other post. LAST YEAR I got a bag of Christmas m&m's that said may contain wheat on them. That is the ONLY time I have ever seen them say that, and the bag came inside of a novelty item, so it may have been made in another country or a different factory than normally used. Other than that ONE time, I have NEVER seen m&m's say that. Sorry if I freaked anyone out.

I recently had some M&Ms and got sick from them too. I tried them a couple of times...and had a bad reaction each time. I was thinking it was the milk -- Could it be the dairy for you?

....some commercial chocolate have Lactose in them (specifically Nestle's) and if you are lactose intolerant you can get gastro symptoms......

I haven't read an M&M bag ingredients in a while - so not sure if they have lactose or not....

Dextrin is potato/corn based and not gluten related. Maltodextrin is corn based in the US.

:( Something in them isn't working for me. I am totally OK with chocolate (Thank God! :rolleyes: ) dairy and peanuts, so now I don't know what is causing the problem.

Too bad, because they were a good snack. :(

    In addition to celiac & rheumatoid arthritis, I also have Reynaud's syndrome. Mine occurs mostly with my fingers. Sometimes my toes get affected if it's really cold.  The grocery store is the worst for me. I hardly ever go in the grocery store without the Reynaud's hitting my fingers. I've tried wearing winter gloves but they don't seem to make one shred of difference. I've also tried using the Hot Hands hand warmer packets in each pocket & putting my hands in my warm pocket with th
    Thank you everyone I went for a second opinion just to re do the blood work hoping I can find out a answer. Last week I had the upper stomach pain again but no celery juice since November so I’m at a loss 😭 but all of my celiac panel including the genetics were negative just that ema which the second doctor said 1:20 is on the low side not sure if that’s true 
It is not a rash, but hives and swelling.  Some doctors think it is a separate autoimmune disorder or that it piggybacks on to others.  It is more commonly associated with autoimmune thyroiditis.   My last bout lasted for six months.  They appeared (from my head to my soles of my feet) every afternoon around 4:00 pm and resolved by morning.  Oddly, they start with abdominal pain.  That is my first clue and next an itchy head.  I was on a cocktail of antihistamines and attempted a low histam
