I found on ebay gluten free snickers, mars and many other candies. Are they really gluten free or the seller is lying? Thanks a lot.

Go to your regular store for those items. They are not anything special they are the same thing you would buy at the local grocery store. The Ebay seller isn't lying but in my opinion they are trying to 'cash in' on folks that don't realize they are the same stuff if they are charging more than you would pay at the corner.

If you go to many of the candy companies web site they will give you a list of their gluten free items. I know Snickers are safe as are Milky Way DARK (the regular Milky Way is NOT gluten free), Jelly Belly jelly beans and quite a few other candies.
