Fine in my experience--never had a problem with them. My wife can't get her mind around mixing chocolate with peanut butter, so all the more for me. :P

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!

Here is an updated candy list for 2018:

Reese’s should be gluten free except for mini’s or candy for holidays like Valentine’s Day.  

Do you have DH (celiac rash)? If so, 20 parts per million may be too much for you.  Often DH suffers must adhere to a really strict Gluten Free diet.

Sounds like it might be more of a allergy to some other ingredient, I get blisters from a corn allergy I got after Celiac, and we are more prone to allergies, intolerance, and food sensitivities.

I also have a peanut issue...going to tell you how I get my butter cup fix.
I mix up a custom batch of that sweetened nut butter here is the trick, 1 cup butter (I use almond or sunbutter) warmed up so it is about pour able (double boiler method) Mixed with 1 cup powdered sugar (I use Swerve Confectioners both sugar and corn Free) 1/4-1/2 tsp salt, and 1 tsp vanilla mix well
In another double boiler set up melt your chocolate (I use lakanto bars which are sugar and dairy free)
Using a muffin tin, pour some chocolate into the bottom of each tin, move to the freezer for 15-30mins, then top with your butter mix, freeze again and finish with more chocolate, freeze for a few hours til solid and can be popped out...HOME MADE BUTTER CUPS...oh yeah you can go crazy with it, use a pie pan......jumbo cup.


Diagnosed Issues

Sensitivities/Intolerances
Peanuts (resolved 2019), Cellulose Gel, Lactose, Soy, Yeast
Olives (Seems to have resolved or gone mostly away as of Jan, 2017), Sesame (Gone away as of June 2017, still slight Nausea)
Enzyme issues with digesting some foods I have to take Pancreatic Enzymes Since mine does not work right, additional food prep steps also
