I don't eat "mini" anything since I read of companies using what they call "run off" chocolate which has been previously poured over other candy. Seems to be more a problem with mini sized candy from what I have read. Not gonna test that theory myself since every once in a while I see a post like yours where something supposedly gluten free made someone ill.

If you don't want to avoid Hershey's, you might just avoid the mini's.

I do fine with the regular or KING size Hershey's ;)

Oh, hey, it's nearly getting time of year for the annual Easter Candy Discussion, isn't it !

Featuring the famous Cadbury Egg Thread from 2008 !

Hershey's hasn't been consistent with identifying or confirming with a degree of certainty the status of their gluten content since they moved manufacturing out of country. This is a shame since the kisses and the hershey bars used to be an easy to find, go- to item for me, but if they aren't going to admit what's in the flavorings sometimes, they're on the "eat at risk" list.

This is an AUSTRALIAN list of cadbury status products http://www.cadbury.com.au/Products/Gluten-Information.aspx

It's sort of roulette with the Hershey bars. I've probably eaten a few since others started complaining, but I have to be careful because I'm not a really bad reactor to gluten. I tend to stash Ghiradelli's in the house, and the peanut M&M's, and the Enjoy Life chocolate chips, so I am having less excuses to eat the other stuff.

I am really hoping M&Ms stays on the good list, as they DO NOT MELT and can be eaten while driving in the summer. Normal summer highs here are around 100

I'm not sure where you're from, but in Canada, Cadbury makes Cadbury Mini Eggs, and Hershey doesn't. Hershey is a completely different company (Oh Henry, Reese's, etc.). Did you call Hershey or Cadbury about the eggs? What were the ingredients?

In the US, Cadbury is licensed by Hershey.

I came across this recipe for Homemade Cadbury Creme Eggs (posted here:). It looks delicious, and may help curb a craving or two. I'm going to try and make them for Easter (when I can shove most of them off to nephews/nieces instead of eating the entire thing myself. ;) )

LOL meaning you people talking about chocolate are bad. Not the chocolate itself. Although there are better chocolates in the world, this chocolate I got from Russia for example was AWESOME. But the the generic stuff is ok too. Chocolate in itself is a food group, so it's all good. :P Hehe.

The other day I decided to go ahead and try the Cadbury Royal Dark Mini Eggs. I could not find any definitive information on if they were gluten free, but thought they were too good to pass up!

However, now I wish I had. I am experiencing all the effects of eating gluten and that is the only thing different I did with my diet. Safe to say, I will be staying away from cadbury products. Maybe they are ok, but this time they definitely werent't for me.

They are delicious and surprisingly simple to make. Such a fun thin to make with little ones especially!

I just got very sick. This morning I ate Cadbury mini eggs while filling Easter baskets. According to the ingredients, they should have been OK, but I can't think of any other reason I am so sick right now. The only other thing that could have caused a problem is the Starburst jelly beans, but I thought they were gluten-free also. I am kicking myself for doing this. How could I have eaten them without checking online first? Stupid, stupid, stupid.

I eat the mini eggs by the bag full, and then I feel sick. Not from the gluten, but rather from the volume :blink:

    • MelissaNZ,  Has your daughter been checked for vitamin deficiencies??? Vitamin D deficiency symptoms include urinary incontinence, oral candidiasis (thrush), skin rashes, bumps on the backs of arms, joint pain, distended stomach and short stature.  Bones can't grow much without vitamin D.  Vitamin D deficiency causes delayed gastric emptying (food doesn't move through the gastrointestinal tract at a normal speed and the intestines bloat) which explains your daughter's delayed reaction to the cake.   Vitamin A deficiency is also a cause of bumps on the back of the arms. Vitamin A deficiency causes vision problems. Vitamin A and D are both fat soluble vitamins.  Absorption of fats is a problem for Celiacs.  So is absorption of B vitamins and important minerals. B Complex vitamins are water soluble and must be replenished every day. Skin rashes are associated with several B vitamins like niacin (B3), B12, and thiamine (B1).   I went through a period of severe malnutrition prior to diagnosis.  It was not a pleasant experience.  I had symptoms similar to your daughter's, including the incontinence, which resolved on vitamin D supplementation.   Please, please have your daughter tested for vitamin D deficiency.  And have her B vitamins checked as well.  Celiac Disease causes malabsorption.  Malabsorption causes deficiency diseases.  Newly diagnosed Celiacs need to be checked for deficiencies.   I hope this helps.  
    • I will try to make my long story short, I have been searching my whole life for a diagnosis,  I have seen pretty much every doctor possible I even went through a spinal tap recently because they thought I had multiple sclerosis,  when I was younger I was always throwing up and having stomach problems, a couple hospital visits they thought I had appendicitis, I started having a neurological symptoms as well as  anxiety and depression,  The fatigue was just over bearing,  I was having numbness and tingling and muscle spasms all the time eventually started having seizures,  which kind of cycled through and stop happening after a couple months,  and then it dawned upon me my brother has celiac pretty severely, my grandmother also has celiac, my dad does as well, I don't know why I never thought that it could be my issue, for the last week I have   Been gluten-free and steering clear of cross-contamination,  my dizziness is improved my fatigue is improved as well as rashes I was getting on my arms  and sides,  I have no more muscle jerks or spasms, The problem is I have horrible insurance and I cannot afford testing, so I am at least trying to do it an home blood test,  I know it's not very accurate on telling me if I have celiac or not,   But the thought I may never know for sure if I have it is very daunting.  My family keeps telling me you don't need  to spend thousands of dollars to have a doctor tell you you can't eat something you already know you can't. Just was wondering if anybody else has been in my position and seeing if anybody has a vi just was wondering if anybody else has been in my position and seeing if anybody has advice,  I don't want to be known as one of those people who believe they have something and people with the disease frown upon them it's a very scary thing to think about. 
    • ...ON a side note this is quite easy, you can make your own out of any gluten-free Bread mix, I recently started using a coconut flour blend for this.......Most often people associate caraway with Rye Bread so you just add caraway seeds to the dough and a bit more vinegar to sour it a tad and BAM gluten-free Rye Bread knock off. I think Authentic Foods even has a additive to put in bread mixes to make it taste like Rye Bread....Or you can buy it preamade, I have issues with all the other ingredients but as for one of the best gluten-free Breads out the Canyon House makes a Rye like bread https://canyonglutenfree.com/buy-gluten-free-bread-products/Gluten-Free-Rye-Deli-Sandwich-Bread.html  
    • Took me less than a minute, although why did they need our addy and phone?
    • As mentioned before you said she had rashes, have they checked if that is DH? That is a positive sign of celiac and those with the DH manifestation can have problems getting a postive with the gut biopsy.   Here are some links. https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ https://www.gluten.org/resources/getting-started/dermatitus-herpetiformis/ Please read up on this. She can get the rash tested for the disease if it is DH.
