Sorry To Be A Pain...trying To Get Organized

Recommended Posts

Hi gang, :)

Can anyone give me a heads-up on Hershey's labeling policy? I found all but Hershey's and Mars while doing my research. I'm trying to get my grocery binder together to take shopping. I appreciate the help!

Hershey at one point had a policy to clearly label gluten ingredients, but in the last few years they have given evasive answers to customer requests. Read the ingredients carefully, and avoid anything with questionable status. In the US, wheat can not be hidden, but barley can.

Hershey is a very "unfriendly" company to those of us who read labels for a living. I avoid purchasing their products whenever possible.

I called Hershey a few weeks ago. They were very friendly and gave me a list of what they considered to be safe as it was on a dedicated line. I don't know that their labels help much, but I don't buy much candy. Their baking chocolates and semisweet chocolate chips were all on the safe list. The rep I spoke with was very friendly even when I asked about some items that weren't theirs....ooops :unsure:

Will you share the list? I'd be interested to know...
