Apparently Cheerwine is growing and moving beyond North Carolina into Atlanta...my parents sent me the article yesterday, so naturally the first thing I did was email the company asking if Cheerwine was gluten free..

here is their answer: "Although we claim Cheerwine to be gluten free, anytime you have a corn product you can have cross pollination that allows trace amounts of gluten in it. None of our ingredients including the coloring have wheat by products or any major gluten contributor."

Thoughts?

I'm impressed with his knowledge, that's for sure!

Cheerwine a soda from Carolina it's hard to explain......it's like a cherry dr. pepper type of taste.......with no calories :)

The regular does have calories, the diet does not.

It's pretty tasty, although I rarely drink soda. You can even find Cheerwine Ice cream around here... haven't tried that one.

It's gluten-free. They're just doing some minor CYA.

Cheerwine was my daughter's absolute favorite when we couldn't even get it in Virginia. She'd load up when we were in N.C.
