Mini York Peppermint Patties

10 posts in this topic

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.

    • Think about this.  I have only had my daughter tested for celiac disease.  She tested negative.  She will need to be retested sometime in the future or when symptoms develop.  But genetic testing?  This might impact her insurability in terms of health and life.  I do not have the answers, but I would research this before having everyone tested.  Some 40% of the population carries the genes to develop celiac disease.  Only a very few actually develop it.  Insurance companies will deny you for all kinds of lame reasons.  Just be careful. 
    • I think for adults who are disabled or have really low incomes, they should be allowed to keep their Rx.  But anyone else who is an adult and has a job, they should pay their own way.  There are so many options available in the UK now and their gluten-free options are really good.  You have better bread than we do in the States and the cost in many instances is lower than it is here.
    • Ennis....pertaining to food deductions, you can deduct the price difference between those items that you would have to buy a gluten free version of because there are no other options......like all the mixes and things mentioned.  Chips, not so much, as many chips are already gluten free so it would not apply.  Those would be your safest bet as you probably will be audited for doing this.  That's how the IRS works. If there are big changes regarding deductions, that will raise a red flag and your chances of being audited go up.  You sound like you keep good records so don't sweat it if you will gain a benefit in income from doing so.  You do realize that you have to have a minimum of 10% of your adjusted gross income to even begin to deduct anything?
    • Hey guys The topic title is actually misleading a little, I had an endoscopy in december, was told it was a little inflamed and they were pretty sure it wasnt celiacs, just a minor gluten intolerance.  Long story short, its now July, had to cancel appointments due to moving to london. tried ringing for results for a long time. Nothing. Last week, find out I am celiac with some eroded Villi.....from December Anyway. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks. I have had problems with kidneys aching, stomach pains, bladder pains, all sorts. before hand, I cut the gluten down, but was not entirely gluten free. I was told that it was early stages.    Gluten Free I am not finding so hard, but I am waking up EVERY morning with stomach pains still. Or bladder, or whatever. Ill go back to the docs soon. Ive been having a lot of fruit and I am wondering if the fibre is not letting my stomach settle. Also that dairy products might be causing the issue. I was basically trying to absorb some nutrients to get rid of my hurrendous exhaustion, I cant be malabsorbing as I still have Villi.    Any advice, anything would be great
    • Thanks for the info.  I will ask the GI about my twin sister and nephews to see if they need to be tested regularly too.  I'm hoping our insurance will pay for gene testing also to help rule any of us out if possible.
