I Am An Idiot. I Didn't Realize The Snickers Wasn't A Snickers. Help!

Recommended Posts

Was in a hurry at the store, went to grab a Snickers bar. I did notice the different packaging, but it seems they are always messing with their packaging and I didn't closely inspect it.

Got home, got the kids to bed, took one bite....spices. Weird coconut-ish flavor. This is foreign food, NOT snickers.

I looked at the pkg. and in the corner of the very busy graphics it says, "New Flavor." Under the word snickers, those busy pictures actually say "Adventure Bar."

I've been looking online and I can't find any info on whether this is gluten-free or not. :( I took that one bite, I guess I won't have to wonder long, because I'll know for sure in an hour :(

How could I do this??? I'm raising 4 celiacs, as well as having it myself, and I can't remember the last time I made such a stupid, stupid mistake. I guess I should be thankful it was me instead of one of the kids.

:( Does anybody know if the Snickers Adventure Bar is gluten-free?

We all make mistakes. Don't beat yourself up over it. Hopefully this Snickers bar is gluten-free too, and you won't be glutened.

I guess you'll know soon, even if nobody else has ever seen this kind of Snickers bar.

Thank you for replying, Ursa Major! It is nice to hear from someone who understands when one is panicking.

So far so good, I am going to bed with all fingers and toes crossed. I have a busy Saturday planned and no time for a glutening. None.

for you "Adventure" bar means something different! It is a SNICKERS product - read below. Don't know if it's gluten-free or not....

Here's what I learned about it from another site:

The new Snickers Adventure Bar is a limited edition tie-in with the new Indian Jones movie: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Obviously, they aren


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

Interesting, debmidge! I'm :lol: at your comment that for me, "Adventure Bar" takes on an entirely new meaning!

I only had the one bite but I didn't care for it. It did taste like cheap chai and tanning oil to me LOL

It is noon the next day and I'm fine, so I'm guessing the Adventure Bar is gluten-free. I won't be buying it again or giving it to my kids, since I can't find any bona fide info about its status, but I'm very thankful to be having a normal Saturday here!

i tried this one also, wasn't too bad. not my fave though. it's pretty good, if you're not expecting a snickers bar. i didn't notice any spices when i was eating mine. just the coconut. but i'm a fan of the coconut candy, so i didn't mind. definitely a little artificially sweet though :)
