Richard,

Smarties, in the US are gluten-free. (I believe that in Canada, they are not)

My understanding (not being in Canada) is that the smarties in the US are a different candy. The smarties in Canada are similar to m&ms. The US smarties are a sugary treat, no chocolate.

As an aside, I sort of remember that they might have lactose in them...? check that out if you are lactose intolerant too.

my Canadian sister in law tells me that Smarties in Canada are a chocolate candy like m&m's and that American Smarties are sugary tablets... I'm addicted to those sugary things. (I think I ate 6 pks and 5 tootsie rolls today while waiting to pick up my daughter from school ;)

Canadian Smarties are chocolate sort of, but not quite like M&Ms.

Canadian Rockets=U.S. Smarties.

Rockets are gluten-free.

Lori- don't get me started. My husband and I always have arguments about this. I think that M&Ms are the superior candy and he thinks smarties. Then he starts the debate about how M&Ms are acceptable only if they are peanut M&Ms. I personally think the original M&Ms are superior and now I want some. :ph34r:

Australian Smarties are like M&M's. Chocolate in the middle and a think layer or colored candy on the outside.

    • I had the gluten free bun this weekend in North Houston and I was pleasantly surprised.  Its surely not the BEST gluten-free bun I've ever had but it emulated the original Chick-fil-A bun fairly well.  The bun is the biggest gluten-free I've ever had, however.   I know they do prepare the meal separately and bring you the buns in a plastic bag and I had no reactions but I've been eating at Chick-fil-A for a while and always had good luck there (before it was just the grilled chicken nuggets).     It was nice feeling me and my oldest son enjoying a relatively normal fast food meal together with the rest of the family.  
    • Hi .there. I'm so tired of feelig like absolute poo every day! I'm 21 and I have horrible skin, mucous in my stool, extreme stomach upset and fatigue every day! I get confused, spacey, lightheaded, dizzy, irritable feelings constantly it seems. My whole body always hurts. And my joints. If im not constipated, I have diarrhea. Gas. Bloating. Itchy rashy bumpy skin. Plus I'm always hungry it seems.     Please tell me I'm on to figuring wth is wrong with me  celiac isnt good it is a horrible diagnosis but I just need some answers. . Can I have your opinions please?  Thanks! I dont know if my photos are going to work   .  Hopefully they do... :-/   
    • I tested positive on the antibody test, declining kidney function being what I had gone to a naturopath for.  I did not want to do the endoscopy, so did a trial of the gluten free diet.  I felt like a truck hit me for about a month, like a bad flu coming on, as tons of inflammation left my body. I was not terribly overweight, but lost it all in that month, dropping 30 lbs, and ended up looking emaciated after. I also did the DNA test, which only says if you have the potential for it, and that was positive. After 2 years I've now gained back muscle and bone and look healthy and fit for my height, and I'm 60 years old.  I have an official Celiac's diagnosis from a naturopath doctor based on the blood test, DNA test, and response to the gluten free diet.  Lots of docs think Celiacs is a totally intestional disease and disregard it unless you have all the diarrhea and underweight symptoms. I had NONE of that.  Oh, and on my last test, kidneys came back from 40% functionality to just basely into the normal range.  :o)  Good luck.
    • BarryC ... I have celiac's and didn't get my knickers in a twist!!! If I did, I'd probably trip and fall flat on my face and have other problems to worry about.  Don't worry about it, we're here to help.   If I get accidentally glutened, I do not get the intestional issues, but I do get some good body and bone aches. If I can't figure out what's causing it, and keep getting glutened, the brain fog sets in, I so very hate that worse than anything, send me to the retirement home early! I also miss a good beer, my regular grocery stopped carrying Coor's Peak, which wasn't great but wasn't bad. I have to go a little further to find good gluten-free beers, just try one of each until you find the one that you like. I used to love Heiferweisen beer...wheat beer of all things, but can't have that anymore, and haven't found a good substitute, oh well.  Onward and upward.
    • My understanding about the antibody blood test is that the amount of a positive result is not indicative of anything...higher does not mean definately have celiac's and lower does not mean could possibly not have it.  My doc told me that anything a little above 0 is the same as a big response, it just depends on the person how much antibody they will produce.
