  1. Oops I just realized I was in the wrong forum. I'm in the US.
  2. Sept 8th, 2008 I logged on here, (I usually only do when there is a specific ques or problem) to report that I had a moderate reaction last night to the Hershey semi-sweet chips. I've been gluten free for over a year and know exactly what I am ingesting when I eat at my house. I got "the reaction" that I know happens only when I eat something tainted, and it happened only after I ate the chips last night. Just a warning. Not sure if it depends on what region you live in. I'm in SC, USA.

  4. Sorry, I just did a quick search and see pages and pages and pages of discussion. A mod can delete this thread if you like! Thanks to yall who responded so quickly, but no need for more responses! It would be wasting your time since there's so much already on it. Thanks again ladies!
  5. Thanks for the welcome! I went gluten free about 6 months ago and my life has changed so much. This is such a great resource. I've spent countless hours googling and searching different celiac forums over the past 6 months. So much to learn. I *would* like to announce that today I found a GREAT substitute for Cadbury mini eggs, and as long as they still make this product, I will never even consider eating Cadbury. It's the Hershey's candy coated chocolate eggs. They look similar to Cadbury mini eggs, but they are just a little bigger. I think they taste GREAT! Just like mini eggs, maybe even better. And these eggs gave me NO symptoms. A happy stomach, all day long! Not even a FLUTTER of a questionable feeling. And it's been over 5 hours since I ate them. So I'm a happy girl today 'cause i loved the mini eggs. BTW, there's NO "natural flavors" listed on the Hershey's Candy-Coated eggs. None of the ingrediants on them look questionable either.
  6. I just got off the phone with an extremely rude Hershey employee. He first mumbled when answering the call, and when asked to speak up since I couldn't make out anything he was saying he was just plain out and out rude with lots of tone and attitude in every word he spit across the line. Jerk. Anyway, the loser told me that any and all allergens such as wheat must be listed on the bag, so basically to assume there's no gluten in the product if wheat is not listed. Now after reading this thread, I realize he was giving me the run around that all you seem to be used to and know how to get through. I'm still learning about the right questions to ask. So this thread has been very helpful. I was debating getting another bag of the mini eggs today, getting so close to Easter and all, but I suppose not. This thread confirms my fear. A month ago I ate a couple bags in the course of 2 weeks, thinking they were gluten free but noticing just a touch of reaction. I thought the reaction was in my mind since it wasn't a full blown attack. But I can see now my symptoms very likely came from that since my typically strict diet hadn't changed.
