so basically that was a brush off right??? i don't think there are any safe candy corn?????????

A brush off no. Just thought you might want to make a simple phone call and verify for yourself. It took 30 seconds to do it myself. Brachs Candy Corn are indeed free of any gluten ingredients. Have a whole bag full. :D

Not a brushoff and actually better than Brach replies in the past. Even before when they wouldn't really comment at all, it was quite obvious that their candy corn was gluten-free, but I refused to eat it on principle. I would eat it now as long as the ingredients didn't show any obvious wheat or malt.

All Zachary's candies are gluten free:

Their candy corn is good, but not as good as Brach's.

I had not eaten Brachs in the past because there was info that even though the ingredients are gluten-free the company wasn't really good about stating if candies were made on shared lines. I"ll have to fill out the form and get info.

I emailed Brachs (owned by Farley and Sather), part of their response is below. It looks like now they're stating whether their candies are prepared on shared lines. The two bags of Brachs candy corn and autumn mix I found at Wal-Mart both had statements that the product was made or handled on shared lines with wheat. I think it's a personal choice, some people would eat it and some (like me) would not. I"m going to stick with Zachary's this season, even though I do miss the taste of Brachs candy corn!

ok, so i just found their number online and called it. i asked about their cleaning process and it sounds pretty good. in between batches they take apart the machine and clean it, sanitize asnd dry all the pieces before putting it back together. so this pretty much is like a bunch of other companies out there who do the same thing.

think i might try......

I wish they'd just use dedicated lines. I was always a huge fan of the Brach's mellowcreme pumpkins that come out each year. I'm tempted to just try them and see what happens.

Anyone else eat them without a problem?

    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up.
