Hershey's Hugs

Recommended Posts

The lady on the phone at Hershey's assured me that since wheat is one of the 8 major protein allergens, it would be listed on the label if it were in Hershey's Hugs--which it is not.

Something in the labelling was suspect, though. Do any of you know for sure if Hugs are gluten-free? They were one of my favorites, pre-diagnosis.

(On a different topic, it was nice to finally figure out why Hershey's cookies 'n' creme made me sick.)

I actually live about 1 hour from Hershey, PA, so chocolate in our area is very abundant. I was advised by another mother that had children with celiac that Hershey Hugs were NOT gluten free.

Hope this helps.

Hmm....I didn't think they were gluten-free...the Hershey's kisses are gluten-free, the normal Hershey's chocolate bar is gluten-free...I might be wrong and I haven't checked officially, but I thought that they contained gluten....

I got a gluten-free list from Hersheys sent to me and it says the the Hershey's kisses, Hershey's milk chocolate bar, and the Hershey's milk chocolate bar with almonds are gluten-free. The hugs were not included in the list I received.

Hershey's general statement on this paper is: check label: gluten will be listed as wheat, rye, barley, and oats.

Hope this helps and if anybody knows anything different let me know:)

;) i truly feel that many of these companies are putting a cover policy out so as not to be sued--its going to be up to our individual judgment and asking each other in here to try and figure out what we can and cant have---we live in a sue happy society and although i dont like that the companies are doing this to us, i can understand why--not fair, but it's the american way---- :( deb
