Molly,

Thanks for the list. I actually found something on the definite no-no list (snickers poppables) that I didn't realize wasn't gluten-free as I assumed they were because snicker's candy bars are, but saw this before I gave them to our son. This board just goes to show how useful and helpful it is to others. Thanks again for posting!

I had gotten a copy of that list a few weeks ago. I took the liberty of modifying it to work with a gluten and dairy free diet. Make sure you always read the labels though since manufacturers change ingredients all too often.

Didn't see "Milkduds" on the yes or no list. Does anyone know if this candy is gluten-free?

Thanks!!

Guest barbara3675

Just got back results from Enterolab that I am not only gluten sensitive, but cow's milk too. I just read the list of candy for milk sensitive people and I don't see any chocolate there. I have the gluten thing figured out pretty good and have been eating gluten-free for two months now. I think I really need some help in learning how to eat dairy free!!!!!!!! You mean to tell me there is dairy in chocolate candy? I have been eating M&M's and Junior Mints thinking they are o.k. Maybe I need someone to tell me what the trigger words are in the ingredient list so I don't eat milk things accidentally. Does this mean I can't eat butter or cheese too? I need help. Barbara

Hi Barbara,

There are only two on the list, plus another that didn't get added:

Milk Duds are yet another Hershey product. As with any Hershey product, just read the ingredients to see if they are gluten-free. They were last time I looked.

Also, Hershey Hugs are listed as not gluten-free but I think they are. But before you eat one, read the ingredients to make sure. Maybe they've changed since I last looked.

Dear Barbara,

I was thinking just like you until the word "milk chocolate"

jumped out at me. I'm not sure about dark chocolate.

Mariann,

Are you able to use coconut milk? I have some but afraid to use it,

I seem to react to all dairy, even soy and rice milk.

Here's something we've done for years at Halloween to reduce the amount of candy in the house...I'll be adapting it for gluten-free this year!

The Candy Witch

Our neighborhood has a Candy Witch. You can tell she's a Candy Witch, because her teeth are gone from all the candy she's eaten. Because her teeth are gone, it's not as bad for her to eat candy as it is for us.

Soooo...on Halloween night, we choose 3 pieces of candy to eat, and put the rest on the porch for the Candy Witch (we really don't want to let her into the house). She takes the candy, and leaves us a different treat, instead (like movie passes, gift certificates to a toy store, etc.). All is well.

This suggestion comes with a note of apologies to all pagans; no disrespect intended. I'm trying to think of a different, non-terrifying, creature to substitute for the Candy Witch, but coming up blank at the moment. My older daughter just suggested the Candy Bunny....

Judy,

Yes, I can have Coconut Milk. I haven't tried it much though. It doesn't really work well as a substitute for cooking, baking, etc.

And most "milk" chocolates do contain milk in some form(anywhere from whole milk to just milkfat). There are some semi-sweet and dark chocolates that do not contain milk. You just have to read the labels.

God bless,

Mariann

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
