Has anyone gotten an answer one way or the other out of Mars on these? I emailed them and got the generic "We're sorry you experienced an issue, please email us the bar code and packaging dates from your product..." email. I ate a bag of these yesterday and had IMMEDIATE symptoms, which to me either says cross contamination from the pretzel M&M's they make, or I have an issue with artificial colors.

Anyone have any insight here? What are your experiences?

M and Ms are safe.

If I eat too many, I do not feel well, but I have issues with food colorings myself.

Mars Chocolate makes M&M's, Dove, Snickers and other products. The company urges gluten-free consumers to check labels, even if a product normally is gluten-free; in busy times of year (such as Halloween), Mars uses alternative facilities to make its candy, and some of those may introduce cross-contamination risks. The company says it will label any gluten ingredients or cross-contamination.

According to Mars Chocolate, the following candies are gluten-free:

M&M's (all EXCEPT for pretzel-flavored M&M's)

3 Musketeers Bars (all flavors)

Milky Way Midnight Bar

Milky Way Caramel Bar

Dove Chocolate products (all flavors)

Snickers Bars (all flavors)

Munch Nut Bar

The following Mars Chocolate products are NOT gluten-free:

Milky Way Bar (original)

Mars Bar

I called them a few weeks ago to check out the cc rumors and was told that if there is a chance of cc with the pretzel ones, there will be a warning on the back that says it may contain wheat. I was told if there is no warning, then they are not made on the same lines as the pretzel ones. I gave them to my kids after that (from a bag with no cc warning) and there was no reaction. I hope that helps!

    • Yep I nailed a JAXpac meal prep kit on amazon day and have been leaving my house more with it packing my own gluten-free herbed flat bread, salads, almond butter, and seeds with me. Made a nice vegan  taco soup the other day with my own cheese sauce, keto salsa (watered down low carb version thickened to a sauce with konjac) miracle rice, and jackfruit meat sub, was great with some taco seasoned thin flat breads from my newest recipe used as tortillas. Lifes been good for me this month celiac health wise. >.< everything else is SUPER bad lol.
    • Yep, we really have it good when you think about it. The only treatment for us is eating gluten free. No pills, no chemo, no radiation. And there is plenty for us to eat, especially now with so many gluten-free foods on the market that are tasty. Labeling laws make it easier too. 20 years ago, these things were not true and celiacs had to be wary of so much. I am glad to hear you are taking your own food when eating out. Kudos!
    • D3 should be taken every 3-7days not daily. It stays in your body for awhile and is easy to OD with causing nausea and vomiting.
    • I am only 7 weeks gluten free and it hasn't been that bad.  I am a silent celiac so I may be glutening myself without knowing it. However, it hasn't been as bad as I thought.  There are a lot of foods I can eat.  When I have had to eat out, I bring my own salad.  At home, whatever I prepare is gluten free.  A friend of mine who had breast cancer a few years back, contracted Parkinson's last year and the. Found out her cancer is back.  It really put this in perspective for me.  I don't have to take pills and deal with side effects, I don't have cancer.  I have to watch my food intake.  I can do it.
    • Thank you all for replying. It's good to know that it's not just me. It gives me (and hopefully the other noobs) some comfort to know that it's normal for the ups and downs to happen. I keep trying to tell myself to be patient with it but it's so hard to be able to look down the road further than the moment when you're in the middle of it. I forgot to mention, yeah, I have had a full vitamin, mineral, and general blood panel done and everything came back normal. Regardless I still supplement with a good (and expensive) multivitamin plus sublingual D3 and B12 every day, and naturally I scrutinize the labels on those and everything else for anything even non-gluten that sounds fishy, including the possibility of CC at the factory. I guess it will just take longer to stabilize.
