All of the Hall's line of cough drops are gluten-free. As a diabetic as well, I choose the sugar-free black cherry ones.

I was so glad I still had some cough drops in the house! But, alas, they are Walgreens brand honey lemon flavored. Ingredients glucose syrup, eucalyptus oil,flavoring, honey, sucrose and yellow No 5.

Shall I risk it?

I wouldn't until I could call and ask--the only suspicious ingredient I see is "flavoring", could be fine but you never know.

I would avoid Hall's BReezers. I became VERY ill to the point that I was throwing up and extreme stomach pain. IT Was so bad that I had a colonoscopy as a result.

Well, no wonder! I've been munching on the Halls for a cough, but I ran out so I switched to a generic brand today because they were in the cabinet. I didn't even think that "flavoring" would be questionable. I thought that maybe my kids cc'd me again today, though I was trying to be so careful.

Just had a bad experience with Ricolla cough drops. They claim to be gluten-free but I am a canary in a coal mine when it comes to gluten containing products. Tough morning....

I also had a bad gluten reaction to Ricola in the last two weeks. Unfortunately, I had a bad case of the flu and a cough so bad I was starting to get sick to my stomach I was coughing so hard, so I was taking their recommended dosage of two every two hours, or whatever it is. I did that for several days in a row. Yeah, I had (what I now know) are gluten symptoms in those couple of days, but I thought it was from the flu! Then I got a bad DH rash. Oops. Gluten. It was the only new thing I was taking. It seems that Swiss gluten-free standards are substantially more lenient than ours.

I have been sick from these as well, I went to hospital with high fever and had to have cold blankets put on me! I tried regular Halls the next time and they were all good :)

I got some plain Halls and Honey ones last year that did not bother me. Unsure if they are still safe.

I just purchased some sugar free black cherry Halls cough drops.  I had a reaction when I tried them about 10 years ago but thought they might be okay now based on forum posts.  After just 2 drops I developed severe abdominal pain and headache, exactly the same as when I am glutened.  I waited a couple of days, tried again and the same thing happened.  Just like 10 years ago.  I contacted the company to inquire about gluten content and they referred me to their product information site with ingredient information.  I informed them that the ingredient information isn't adequate to determine if the product contains gluten and that is why celiacs contact manufacturers for more accurate information.  They refused to provide me with any information about whether or not the sugar free drops contain gluten.  I've thrown them away and am now staying away from all of their products.
