I can't eat anything Hershey. It all makes me sick. I think they have CC issues.

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.

Update-

I ate a Mr. Goodbar.

And got sick.

So I can no longer say it was just the mini's.

This one was King sized. :huh:

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:

    • It's good to know it was of use, thanks for letting me know   All the best, Matt
    • Hi Matt,   Thank you very much for a thorough response. Your link seems to cover pretty much all the questions one might have in my current situation. I appreciate it.   Have a wonderful day, Lex
    • I am worried about the cost but I think having that test done would help me rule things out. Either way I need to see a G.I my issues are getting out of control.
    • Thank you for all the information. I am sorry for the late reply to everyone. I have been feeling worse and worse lately. Got the blood test results, it came back negative. Seeing a G.I specialist in three months (too long for me :/) I've been keeping a food diary and realize I feel worse after eating gluten. After the G.I I want to start the diet. I'm going to call him and see if I can get seen sooner. The bloodwork said theres no signs of inflammation and they don't suspect it to be autoimmune but they want me to do the diet anyway. I wish I had answers because my vision is getting worse, cramping, nerve pain and trips to the bathroom are amplifying. Meh. Also I have a vitamin d deficiency so I am taking d3 2000iu with vitamin b12. Thanks for the help! 
    • I'm sorry you are dealing with this. My son deals with food intolerances that are not identified by any biomarker as well. I hear the same response from doctors in that, "if the food makes him feel bad then it's probably best to avoid the food." (Thanks for your insight doc!) His symptoms are not dermatological though. His symptoms are mostly neurological and psychiatric with some bloating and mild digestive issues. He loses his mind quite literally if he digests gluten. Also develops what is known as a stereotypy, involuntary movement of hands. He is otherwise a normal child. We are unable to obtain any kind of diagnosis though.  I know you're avoiding a lot of foods right now, but don't get discouraged. It's just a way of life and you're doing the right thing. Right now we are avoiding foods such as soy, all types of grain, chocolate, dairy and nightshades. I have limited his iodine intake as well. I have personally found that gluten, iodine and soy cause intensely itchy blisters and joint pain for me. Perhaps have you tried cutting back on iodine intake?
