I Feel So Stupid

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been rooting through the kids halloween candy for things I can eat. I ate about three bite size milky way around 5:30 pm. today. I am sitting here at work and couldn't figure out why I am burping more than usual and feeling the heartburn coming on. DUH, I just realized milkyways are not gluten free that the nougat has barley malt in it! :o I hope it does not last too long, but like I said, that's what I get for raiding the kid's halloween candy. :P

Oh, that's a bummer! I hope you feel better soon! I was lucky that my son asked specifically for gluten-free candies as he went along. Someone gave him a Nestle Crunch, and he said (9 yrs old) "I can't eat this because it has gluten. May I have Starburst instead?" I was very proud of him, and didn't have to take away any of his candy.

Woliki, you should be very proud of your son!

My kids aren't gluten-free. They were nice and offered me some of their gluten-free candy. I had assumed I couldn't have snickers (my favorite) when I started gluten-free. It's been a great Halloween, finding out I can safely eat snickers and 3 musketeers!

Thanks. I just hope it does not shut me down for a week (I get constipated and bloated when glutened). :huh: I have done pretty good on not getting glutened. I have only been glutened twice this year. I'm not counting the reaction I had several months ago from gluten free oats. At least I know I react to those now too. I just can't believe I was that careless today. Oh well. ;) Sounds like your son has things down pat.

You CAN eat the Milky Way Midnight. No barley.

I could have sworn that Milky Way Midnights had gluten when I last checked the ingredients, too. Was I seeing things?

Sorry, I hope you feel better soon!

I ate about 20 mini Snickers this weekend since that was one of the things I knew was safe...but even though it is gluten-free, i should have stayed away....way too much - lol

I got off easy this time. I think it was because I only ate the three mini ones and not a great big huge one. Heartburn went away the next day but the tummy rumbled until today. I think I'm already on the mend. Thanks for the support! Oh I don't really care for dark chocolate, so I don't eat the milkyway midnights. Snickers and butterfingers are the way to go if I want something totally junk food. :lol:

I did the same thing. A full size Butterfingers. They are supposed to be gluten free, but I am still feeling it! I hope I manage to resist next Halloween!

I used to eat butterfingers all the time and never had any problems. Just goes to show you never know how you will react to some things.

I did the SAME exact thing -- only I knew Milky Way's have gluten -- but when I picked three candies from my gluten eating son's bag I was thinking snickers are gluten free and grabbed a milky way instead -- no wonder it tasted so good! Later that night I was bloated up like 8 months pregnant which hasn't happened since going gluten-free -- figured it out and boy did I feel stupid -- fortunately the effects were gone the next morning.

MilkyWay Midnight bars and Butterfinger bars are gluten free. Regular Milky Ways use a barley based nougat in their filling and the Midnight version uses vanilla.

Any reactions would not be gluten related.
