Ok so I have a ton of hot chocolate in my house. Does any know if the packets of swiss miss are gluten free? Also swiss miss with marshmallows? I also have to purchase nestle for a project and have no idea if that is gluten free as well. That would also contain the mini marshmallows.

If you have the box at home, what is on the ingredients list? There most likely is a 1(800 #) on the box to inquire about the gluten free status. Marshmallows are generally gluten free.

Hi and welcome to the board :)

Swiss Miss is a Con Agra company, and they will list any gluten on the label. Nestle will, also. If you have other brands you are wondering about, you could list those and hopefully someone will know--or you can always call the company and ask them.

Never assume that all foods in a catagory (such as hot cocoas) are all gluten-free--each one has to be checked. ;)

It's a little daunting at first, but I promise it will get much easier with a some time.

Does anyone know if Higgins & Burke (made by Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee Inc.) "gourmet" WHITE hot chocolate is gluten-free? I can't find any information on their website or anywhere online using a google search. There is nothing in the ingredients obviously stating wheat or other gluten products, however there are natural & artificial flavours and a lot of chemically-sounding names that I can't decipher.

I emailed the company, but I usually get a much faster response on this forum :) I even tried calling, but just got an answering service! It's very cold here in Winnipeg and I have exams to study for! BRRRR

Thanks,

Jillian

Right before the massive outbreak in November, there was a peppermint/chocolate-drizzled popcorn that I got at Walmart, and it gave both of us horrible diarrhea, and within a few days he was covered with more rash than ever before. Might have been unrelated, but it's the only unusual thing that times out right for any causality. Otherwise, he wasn't eating anything different. The first thing t
    Well, TDZ, I certainly hope that your husband is able to get some Dapsone to quickly ameliorate his DH (and that it does not have too many adverse effects on him, either).  It sounds like your husband's DH is worse than mine ever was, so I can only imagine the ongoing agony that he's been dealing with.  To call DH "just an itch" would be like calling am amputation "just a scratch", i.e., probably nobody who has not experienced it can imagine how frustrating, distracting, maddening and depre
Yeah, I think the only reason to bother with trying to get a diagnosis is if it's needed in order to get the Dapsone, which would be a lifesaver for him in stopping or helping the itching while he gets his diet more in order. He's had continuous rash and lesions and blisters over large to larger parts of his body for a couple of years, and the itching is driving him insane.  We do have an appointment with his PCP this afternoon, to try and talk him into trying the Dapsone -- seems it would
