Hershey's Kisses

I picked up Hershey's Kisses, Cherry Cordial and Candy Cane at the store. I popped one of each into my mouth. Worst reaction in years. Just not sure which or both of them. These go out of the house today. Anyone else reacted to these Kisses?

Hersheys candy always makes me sick. Nestle milk chocolate morsels are gluten free and they taste a lot like Hersheys. I keep those on hand for when I want some chocolate. Those with a handful of raisins makes a great snack.

Someone gave me a candy cane filled with Hersheys Kisses. I know that at Halloween Hersheys said these were gluten free. Is this still the case? They are calling my name and I really want to eat them. They are the plain ones. thx

I would be very surprised if anything has changed in two months. They have not changed in (at least) 10 years with respect to the Kisses.

Thanks. I guess I kind of already thought this. I was glutened 2 weeks ago when my baby niece stuck her hand in my mouth while it was covered in cracker crumbs. I am just being extra careful b/c my system is still a little sore. Thank for the reassurance.

I bought the candy cane kisses a week or so ago....and didn't think anything of it. Well I have had a huge contstant headache the last week....i broke out, and I am having digestive issues. I was trying to figure out where the gluten came from...but just figured it out!! The dang candy cane kisses!! So sad, because they were SO delicious!! ;0

I bought the Cherry Cordial ones (figuring if I couldn't have them, my DH could eat them)... couldn't find any alleregen info on the bag, nor on their the regular or holiday website listed on the bag... which, IMO was kind of pathetic-- they could put up all sorts of recipes & other stuff, but no allergen info. I was going to try to call their Customer Service line, but I've been too busy/ tired the last couple days.

My DH will be more than happy to enjoy them :)

At Halloween, i did have the regular Hershey's Kisses with no problem, but I also don't react strongly.

They may not have gluten ingredients in them but every time I eat Hershey's candy I get sick. I think they have a big CC problem. I am super super sensitive though.

Me too. There's just something about Hershey's that doesn't agree with me.

I used to live near Hershey Pa and some of my friends had summer jobs at the factory and also at the Reese plant(OK this was a while ago). I can remember them saying how the company reclaimed chocolate if it didn't form correctly or when they cleaned machines, that the chocolate was too valuable to just trash. Now I don't know if they are still doing that but given how companies pinch pennies these days I wouldn't be shocked if they did. So this could be the source of cross contamination. Husband gave me a valentine heart with kisses in it and I am pretty sure I am reacting to them. Also weren't they moving their manufacturing to Mexico or someplace else? That would open up a whole host of other issues with ingredients. I don't know if I am reacting from cross contamination or the artificial flavoring but I am swearing off them for now until they clearly have the words gluten free on the packaging.

My poor little 2 yr old had the worst reaction since we discovered his condition 6 months ago from Hershey chocolate last night. He has had the fun size bar before with no reaction and ate 1, but he had 5 hershey kisses and wow. He was up for FOUR HOURS screaming in pain last night and is refusing anything to eat this morning (likely the beginning of his typical 3 day hunger-strike). I had read on a site that Hershey fun size and kisses were gluten-free, and there were no ingredients that appeared to be hiding anything, but he is very sensative and I'm betting on cross-contamination. Sigh. Just wanted to help spare someone else the misery.

I'm very sensitive and I had an immediate reaction from these and the candy cordial ones (on separate occassions). My main symptom mimicks a gallbladder attack.

I've had terrible experiences with Hershey candy made in Mexico, but I've been fine with it when it's been made in Hershey, PA. I eat Reese's made in Hershey, PA all the time with no reaction, but eating just a few made in Mexico and I get sick. All I can recommend if you really like Hershey candies is to check where it is produced. Hershey candies do say where they were manufactured on the package.

It is getting harder and harder to find Hershey candy made in PA though. When I browsed the Hershey candy in the Halloween isle this last Halloween it was all made in Mexico, I had to buy from the normal candy isle to have some safe to hand out and be able to eat what wasn't used.

    • Ditto. However, this is what I can never understand about gluten free food.  (see the bold bits which I've taken from the article) "We wanted to determine if gluten consumption will affect health in people with no apparent medical reasons to avoid gluten. Gluten-free foods often have less dietary fiber and other micronutrients, making them less nutritious and they also tend to cost more,” I wonder why  what so much of what I eat  that's gluten free doesn't have added vitamins - we of all people need fortification in our cereals and bread, surely?       
    • Yeah we learned that the hard way.  I am inclined to think (as I did initially) that it was JUST the Cheerios but as time is passing and she is not bouncing back I am worried that we need to strip away dairy again for a while.
    • Oh I have no issue with being dairy free personally but tell that to a 13 year old.  We both went gluten-free at the same time and it has been mindlessly easy for me.  But I am easy about food and no real food issues.  I am far more adaptable.  She comes to the table with her own unique set of issues that complicate just easily transitioning to dairy free versions of much loved favorites.  To most they are jst that "substitutes" to her they are completely different foods and ones that she has no interest in eating.  They don't satisfy her need for XYZ.  It is like craving an apple and someone handing you a fish.  For her anyway! LOL!
    • I believe the talk around this forum is that cheerios are not gluten free enough for people with celiac at this time. I don't know if anything has changed on that and when their lawyer calls me I'll quickly delete this. haha  
    • Could be we generally say get off of dairy for a few months when going gluten free. The part of the intestines that produce the enzymes, and help break down dairy are associated with the tips of the villi, which are the most damaged if not gone in celiacs. THIS is why most of us end up with a lactose intolerance early on. And most can introduce it later after healing. As to her symptoms with it there was a bunch of research about dairy permeated the gut and causing neurological issues in a autism study I was looking at years ago. And there have been other studies about damaged intestines and how the hormones in milk can easier effect ones body.   Personally I also have a huge grudge against dairy on a personal level as it is not natural to suck on a cows tits and drink the stuff, nor your dogs, nor a rabbits......I mean come on even Human Breast milk you would find odd to drink as an adult right? Back in the past dairy was a great way to get calories and fats when there was famine, etc around I mean it is meant to make a calf grow into a 500+lb cow. But on a genetic and hormonal level it is not really for human consumption and now days the whole corporate BS propaganda push and dairy farms shove that oh its healthy stuff down your throat. There are plenty of dairy free options for everything feel free to message me if you need help finding anything I have been dairy free for over a decade.
