Regular Milky Ways are not gluten-free. They contain both wheat flour and malted barley.

Aren't dark chocolate milky ways gluten free? I thought so but have been too scared to try. The info should be available somewhere, though. I would avoid them though, personally.

Regular Snicker's are gluten free, I eat them with no problem. Not the same as a milky way, but...something, anyway.

Yes the dark milky ways are gluten free. I eat at least 2 a week.

So M&M's, Dark Milky Ways, Snickers and Butterfingers are good? That's a pretty nice selection. I'm sure there are more but these would tide me over nicely!! Especially M&M's. Yummm!! Though I'm still mad they changed the tan color to blue LOL

I hated the tan ones as a child. Would pick them out and try to throw them away when my parents weren't looking. For some reason I thought they tasted less chocolatey than the dark brown ones. Those were my favorite. Although I was happy they got rid of them, I did not like the blue ones. I just think blue food is wrong.

I have a friend who claims she can taste the red coloring in foods and that it tastes bad. Ever since then I think I do notice a difference with some things. Not things like cherry candy, but in things where the candies are all different colors but the same flavor. Like M & Ms. I do notice a difference.

Two things:

1) If ANY of your candy bars have HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) put it back on the shelf.

2) Stick with all natural dark chocolate bars (high in anti-oxidants)

High Fructose Corn Syrup is fine in moderation....no one has to put their candy back on the shelf! I mean, you have impressive abs so I'm sure you don't eat candy but a lot of us don't look like that and tend to enjoy a snickers now and then....but you...you go on with your bad self and that rockin 100 pack! :P

I'm on the 'HFCS is bad' bandwagon as well. I don't think it's a good idea even in moderation.

I agree--I completely avoid it.

I'm with you! Daughter knows if it's in there, to put it back.

Nope, don't go for the Reeses Pieces :( But peanut butter and peanut M&Ms are fine. Anything but the pretzel ( self explanatory :unsure: ) Reeses peanut butter cups are good, too. Hershey's plain and almond, regular size bars, too! (Guess you can tell which wagon I ride on :D )

M & M Mars seems very reluctant to label their foods as Gluten Free. I love Milky Way Dark and Snickers but not real confidant in trying them with their reluctance.  On the other hand, one of my favorite candies is Goldenberg's Peanut Chews (the original dark chocolate version).  They are labeled as Gluten Free and they are Delicious!!!

Welcome, you are repying to a thread that is 7 years old. I've been gluten free for a long time and Snickers and Milky Way Dark are two of my favorite candy bars.
