Hershey's Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

Recommended Posts

Okay so I have been gluten-free since April 09 and have had a few "oopsy" moments of course painful. So I purchase "Cherrybrook Kitchen" Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix which is labeled gluten-free, egg free, dairy free, nut and peanut free. The first time I used it things went well they are DELISH and they didn't upset my tummy at all. I was upset that there weren't more chips in them though so this time I added Hershey's brand chocolate chips, I ate 2 with my dinner (nothing new) this was about 4 o'clock. About 8 o'clock I start having a little reflux (I haven't had an issue with this in MONTHS) and then my tummy starts twisting and I feel UGGHHH, begin to get the chills. It is now 10:30 and my tummy is starting to settle down a bit (thankfully cuz it usually takes about 5 hours to initially feel better and then I am still sick for about 4 days later). So I am wondering if I actually glutened myself here or if possibly the extra "richness" from the extra chocolate chips may have upset me? Just wondering because I have about a dozen more of those cookies in there and I'm thinking that the kiddos are going to finish them cuz I am scared now :unsure: I have been successful with Hershey's choco bar, choco bar with almonds and their MMs. Did these baking choco chips poison me?

Any feedback, thoughts welcome. Thanks!!

Hershey is not top of my list for "good" companies. They will not disclose their sourse of "natural flavors" and prefer to protect their suppliers, rather than support the millions of people who purchase their products. Nope, Hershey products are not on my shopping list.

Betty Crocker makes some drop dead Choc. Chip Cookie Mix. You can find it in the regular baking section of your grocery store.

I can't tell you if Hershey Chips are gluten free and nor will they. BUT, I do hope you feel better soon.

I am not Hershey Friendly--- a few personal reasons besides celiac. I actually live and work in Hershey.

I actually buy Wegmans chocolate chips they are labeled gluten free on the bag. Also Walmart labels their Great Value brand gluten free.

Nestle's Tollhouse Chocolate Chips are gluten free, also. I just use the recipe on the bag and substitute in my gluten free flour. They come out great. :)

You guys are great :) thanks so much. I was not aware that Great Value brand chocolate chips were labeled gluten-free I buy a lot of their products so I can eat without worry. I appreciate all the suggestions on the other chips. I have heard about the Betty Crocker gluten-free line coming out but they haven't hit our store yet. I also have to stay egg free as I am allergic to that too but I just sub in an egg replacer or apple sauce. Luckily I did not ingest more than 2 cookies and it was just the chips that were bad so today I seem to be doing pretty well other than slightly irritable and sleepy. Thank goodness by midnight last night the stomach pain stopped enough to let me sleep a bit.

Again thanks so much, before I try new things I will turn here first and do some more investigating.

I have been gluten free for over a year now. Suffering my whole life since as far back as I can remember. I eat Hershey Chocolate Chips all the time and have never experienced any after sickness. I think maybe your sickness came from somewhere else, maybe to much sugar or cocoa. Chocolate can give anyone heartburn if you eat enough of it. Again, I have been eating Hershey Chips for awhile and just recently had my yearly blood test and my levels are negative. I hope this is helpful and do not encourage anyone to eat anything that makes you question the product or feel sick.
