My Dear, Sweet, Teenaged Boy...

Recommended Posts

just brought me a Cadbury egg. <3

Can I eat it? The ingredients list is too small and shiny for me to read w/o unwrapping the whole thing, flattening it out and getting my reading glasses.

I just did a search and apparently the Creme and Caramel ones are. -- woot! -- I'm heading to the grocery store now, and just came back to the board for a second before leaving. I'm glad I did. {adds to grocery list} B)

I love it when teenage boys are sweet to their mom's! I don't know about the Cadbury egg, but I read a few posts about it being gluten free and then one from someone who thought they got ill from it so I can't advise you on that. But I think your son is pretty cool!

Back from store with two four-packs. :rolleyes:

Regular creme eggs show no gluten ingredients listed. Allergy info says "manufactured in a facility that also processes peanuts/tree nuts."

Caramel ones also have no gluten ingredients listed and the allergy info says: "manufactured on the same equipment that processes eggs" and "manufactured in a facility that also processes peanuts/tree nuts."

That's it. I'm pouring some wine and having a cadbury egg while I watch Biggest Loser. B) (no comment about eating fattening chocolate while watching that show.) ;)

In previous years, they were not gluten-free. Hmmm...maybe I'll get one for my teenaged (gluten-free) son. He has missed them.
