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.

Thanks!!

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

    • That's what I thought!  My father has gluten sensitivity and I almost regret telling the doctor that because I feel that made her jump to conclusions because of that.  He never had the biopsy either.  I feel like doctors think it's just easier to say it's celiac when they show a gluten sensitivity to avoid additional testing, even if that diagnosis doesn't make any sense at all.  My doctor didn't even offer the biopsy, and said the blood work was enough.  Should I seek a third opinion?  I mean, I've been gluten free for 9 months...
    • It will prolong your life....celiac is a autoimmune disease that  causes your own immune system to attack you. The longer your eating gluten the worse it gets, I mean all kinds of other autoimmune disease, food allergies, food intolances. One day you could lose the ablity to eat carbs, or sugars, or become randomly allergic to tomatoes or corn all cause you decided not to be on road to healing I am not kidding here. I am allergic to corn, can not process meats, have another autoimmune disease that makes it so I can not eat dairy or CARBS/SUGARS.   I wish I could go back in time and go on a gluten-free diet a decade ago. Worse that could happen you could develop cancer or other complications and yes we have had this happen to a member before on our forums. Think of it like this your just changing brand here I will give you some links to some gluten-free foods, and how to order them, You can even order alot of them online this should help simplify it for you. I suggest thrive, amazon, or one of hte other links from there, Many you can order from the manufacture. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • I know this is not funny for you guys, but I had to laugh about how all of those family members simply ignored your well meant advice. That is definitely head in the sand syndrome. I have tried for a long time to find the connection between autoimmune diseases and my health. With this celiac diagnosis I have finally found it. All of the puzzle pieces are in place for sure and it is going to be my mission to do the best possible in order to get healthy again.   What a sneaky disease this is and to think that none of my family members never were diagnosed, despite the fact that both have been in doctor's care all of their lives. It really goes to show that most medical doctors simply seem to completely disconnect nutrition with health.   I am scared to give that advice to people when I see them suffering from specific diseases. But there are people that I would like to help if I can. Scared to make those suggestions, because so many times negative reactions follow and all I meant to do was to help that person.
    • There are definitely things you can do to make it easier on yourself. But all of my ideas seem to cost money and involve cooking. But I'll give it a shot anyway in case you haven't already thought of it. I would buy a small chest freezer and put gluten-free foods in it. Canyon bakehouse sells their fantastic bread and bagels right on their website. You can just buy a case of it. Then if you ever get in the mood for a sandwich or bagel the bread's right there frozen in your chest freezer. If you get invited to somebody's house for dinner find out what their cooking and make your own similar version of it. So for Easter I would make ham, potatoes and broccoli and bring that with me. So when everybody else is eating a fantastic Easter dinner I'm also eating a fantastic Easter dinner. I have other food issues and before celiac I was invited to a friend's wedding. I wasn't going to be able to eat the food they were serving so I made similar food at home. They were serving lamb, ham, vegetables, potatoes. So I brought ham, corn and potatoes with me and heated it up when everybody was going to the buffet to get their food. So when everybody else was pigging out on this great wedding dinner I was also pigging out on a great dinner. And nobody would have noticed if they didn't try. Sometimes you just get in the mood to have a frozen dinner and just don't feel like cooking something. There's two ways you can go about this. I happen to be addicted to Udi's chicken Florentine and think that their broccoli kale lasagna is very good as well. So I'd stock up on that in that chest freezer. glutenfreemall.com has tons of stuff. On Sunday you can make a weeks worth of food and freeze a lot of it in individual portions. After a few weeks you will have several different meals in the chest freezer that you made at home. You can eat those on weeknights when you're too busy to cook. In my family Friday night was always eat out fast food night. McDonald's, Burger King, pizza, fried chicken. So for pizza my plan is to purchase Etalia New York style pizza crusts. Purchase some Escalon six in one crushed tomatoes and freeze in individual portions. Buy some Grande 50/50 mozzarella cheese and freeze in individual portions as well. If on Friday night if I am in the mood for pizza I'll just grab a crust, a portion of sauce and a portion of cheese from the chest freezer and make myself pizza in under 15 minutes. When I get invited to a barbecue I bring loaded potato skins or batter fried chicken wings. Everybody loves them as do I. I by Pamela's gluten-free flour from Amazon six at a time. So I always have some available. For the record, at the moment I am an extremely strict diet and cannot do any of the above. But will go back to that method in a few months.
    • Yes, I remember as a child being very ill too, could never explain it. The fact that I have several autoimmune diseases speaks volumes. I sure wish I had caught this much sooner.   Will have to research to increase enzyme consumption, but we can not look into our digestive system. Trying to concentrate on repairing the damage, not much else that can be done right now.
