Mini York Peppermint Patties

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if these are gluten free. I read somewhere that peppermint patties were gluten free and didn't even think about the mini one's. I have a pretty bad gluttening the past few days and was wondering if these could be the culprit.

I also ate at Chipotle's and the reaction started about 24 hours later. I have been awake for two nights at least half the night. It is the holiday and weekend, so I can't contact them myself.

Thanks so much,

Monica

Hershey no longer claims to clearly list all gluten, BUT they must and will list wheat and they say any barley would be listed as malt. So you can still just read the ingredients to see if they're safe.

I consider Chipotle's to be safer than a number of places but they still do have flour tortillas so the risk of CC is always there. Did they put on new gloves before doing your order?

Thanks Richard, no they didn't use new gloves. I rarely eat out ever, but risked it. With all the flour tortillas, it does seem a bit risky. Other's here seem to do ok, so I always think it is just me. It will definitely be awhile before I eat there again.

I found that when I eat at Chipotle (which is about twice a month or more) that I can only order the burrito bowl WITHOUT cheese or anything that they would use their hands in. Even if they use new gloves, they haven't used new gloves before, so the cheese or whatever that's in the container is already contaminated. Since cutting out the cheese (and lettuce/onions, etc.), I haven't had a problem there.

monica,

Merry Christmas! I'm sorry that you are having a glutening...ugh :(

I haven't eaten yorks in awhile, but here was a point where I was living off them for my "sweet/cookie" type treat after going gluten free. They were safe at the time. I don't have any here to check.

one of my worse reactions ever was at a chipotle's....right before christmas, last year, as a matter of fact. I'm happy that others do so well there, but it is high on my list of no-no's (for me). so it might not be "just you."

hope that you recover quickly.

I just ate one of the Mini York Peppermint patties (in the tin) and had a gluten reaction within 20 minutes. The ingredients don't list gluten but do have "inverted egg whites" which could be the culprit...

Hershey will not disclose it's source for "Natural Flavors" in any of their products, and thus, will not consider these products to be gluten free.

So far, we have no had any problems with York peppermint patties. They're one of our (my boys' and my) favorite things. :P

As Momma Goose said, don't trust Hershey's just because the ingredients "look ok." But so far, the peppermint patties are ok for us.

    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.
    • Diagnosed at 57
    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
