I'm sure some of you old pros already know this, but I have been deprived for 5 1/2 yrs. now of most junk food (probably a good thing!) but, I just called Mars (who makes M&M's-- they are safe and they have a recording of all their gluten-free candy! Yes! I know it's not healthy, but it's good to know I can have them! :) :)

Patti, do you remember that we had a member from New Zealand who said that M&M's are not gluten free there? Or am I dreaming again. :ph34r:

Lisa was correct (as usual)....as of this thread below, (2006), M&M's contain wheat glucose in New Zealand.

OK....recently it was posted that "wheat glucose" is considered gluten free because of it's refinement. Maybe Kaycee CAN eat those M&M's???? ramble, ramble, ramble....

Oh, yeah....no crunchy M&M's.

Can someone tell me which candies are gluten-free? I thought Hershey's Kisses were, and then I read somewhere that they're not...confused-- I try to stick to Organic Chocolate or Trader Joe's stuff...but, it would be so handy if I could have the stuff that they sell at the grocery store!

I am impressed by your good memory Lisa!


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003
