Hershey's Cookie 'n' Cream Drops - Gluten Free?

3 posts in this topic

Hi I'm in Alberta, Canada and just bought a package of Hershey's Cookies 'n' Cream drops. I was super excited to see that there was no gluten in them! However, when I was looking on the American site the ingredients were much different. Does Hershey's Canada produce things differently from in the States?

Here are the Canadian ingredients:

Sugar, Milk Ingredients, Modified Palm Oil and Vegetable Oil (Shea, Sunflower and/or safflower), Corn Syrup Solids, Corn Starch, Cocoa Powder, Modified Corn Starch, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Soy Lecithin, Gum Acacia, Confectioner's Glaze, Salt, Artificial Flavour, Tocopherols, Polygycerol, Polyricinoleat, Color. ALLERGY INFORMATION: MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS/TREE NUTS

Here are the American Ingredients:

Ingredients: Sugar, Vegetable Oil (Cocoa Butter, Palm, Shea, Sunflower, Canola and/or Safflower Oil), Nonfat Milk, Corn Syrup, Enriched Wheat Flour (Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, and Folic Acid), Milk Fat, Contains 2% or Less of: Cocoa Processed with Alkali), Whey (Milk), Soy Lecithin, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Chocolate, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Sodium Bicarbonate, Salt, Confectioner's Glaze, Gum Acacia, Tocopherols to Maintain Freshness, PGPR - Emulsifier, Artificial Color (Blue 2 Lake, Red 40 Lake, Yellow 5 Lake).

Someone please help me with this. I would really like to find out if these are actually gluten free in Canada.

Thanks.

Hello, and welcome.

Some products vary in their ingredients from country to country. Hershey and Campbell's have very different ingredients in Canada than in the US.

That said, I don't see anything in the Canadian ingredient list that could be hiding gluten.

In Canada, wheat is a "priority allergen" and will be disclosed on the label. Barley can hide in both Canada and the US, but none of the listed ingredients suggest to me that it is present. My take is that the Canadian product is gluten-free.

Someone could start an awesome business shipping us gluten-free Canadian versions of things, and shipping them Northern Folk gluten-free versions of our foods. So curious about the ingredients.

    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there.
