Is the delicious, life fulfilling Reeses Crispy Crunch safe? I did not notice any issues on the label; however, the Nestle site does not list it as gluten-free. I found one post on here where someone mentioned it, but nothing else. I did contact the company and am waiting for a response, but curious if someone already knows.

I don't know whether it's safe or not, but just the words "crispy crunch" would warm me off. B)

On the surface it seems fine:

PEANUTS; SUGAR; VEGETABLE OIL (COCOA BUTTER; PALM KERNEL; PALM; SHEA; SAFFLOWER AND/OR SUNFLOWER OIL); CHOCOLATE; CORN SYRUP; MILK; CONTAINS 2% OR LESS OF: LACTOSE (MILK); COCOA; WHEY (MILK); MILK FAT ; NONFAT MILK; SALT; MOLASSES; SOY LECITHIN; PGPR, EMULSIFIER; TBHQ (PRESERVATIVE); ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR

MANUFACTURED ON THE SAME EQUIPMENT THAT PROCESSES COCONUT.

supposedly the crispy crunch is from a peanut candy vs bread/cracker. Seems to be safe. Hope they confirm it.

The joys of a non-answer. Assuming the label is accurate, they should be okay..

Hi Chad,

Thank you for contacting The Hershey Company.

For your convenience, we have provided a list of current products that have been fully evaluated and qualify as gluten free using standards proposed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This list of gluten-free confections is available on our Web site: http://www.thehersheycompany.com/brands/special-nutrition.aspx#/Gluten-Free

Please note, this list is not all inclusive as we have other gluten-free confections. The best way to determine if our products contain a gluten ingredient is to read our product label. This label includes an accurate, current listing of the ingredients in our products. Because, on occasion, the list of ingredients can change, we strongly encourage you to check the ingredient label on the package each time before you make a purchase.

If you should have questions concerning additional products, please call us at 800-468-1714. A representative will be glad to assist you with any questions you may have.

We appreciate your loyalty as a consumer.

Jean

Um, actually, that is what I consider the best possible answer. They told you that if the product contained gluten, the label would disclose the fact. No worries about info from their call center or web site reflecting a newer or older version.

As long as they label clearly. It is interesting to me though that they have a list of gluten-free items but it really only has a few items listed.

The products listed are most likely tested to be at or under the 20ppm of gluten (as the proposed US standard). The other products that do not contain gluten are not tested, and not listed as gluten free. You will see this frequently with many companies.

I read labeled and if there is no gluten listed, I have no problem consuming that product.

For those more sensitive or concerns, I would recommend that they buy Certified Gluten Free Products.

The question that I keep coming up with has to do with the "significance" of the usage of the word(s) "ingredient(s)"... I keep seeing similar disclaimers/statements from companies regarding their products not having gluten in the "ingredients"...

My question is about processing...the facility/equipment....is it used for gluten products? I read about CC, in here, so often that I'm kind of surprised it hasn't come up in this thread...

Contact the company and get first hand information. :)

    • I have problems with corn so I have to be aware of that when shopping for spices and gluten-free baking products as Raven pointed out. I use Badia which states certified gluten-free As for encouragement drink lots of water and rest. A nice soak in tub sometimes is soothing. I hope it passes soon. If you find out it is gluten-free after all ask about corn in product, on the line, or facility . May your symptoms be minimal and pass fast  best wishes
    • Nov 18, 2015 >.< yeah it was older, Checked some newer testing others have done and found the more recent ones under 5ppm.....so perhaps they got their act together. I still am that old dog recalling being hit and growling at them about it.
    • Yes, I've seen these and believe that these were taken during the time period that GM had an issue with a contaminated truck, and this caused them to issue a recall on batches made at a plant. If I am correct about this, that was years ago, and they have corrected that issue. What is the link for this? What time period were these tests done?  I am fairly certain you are showing old data here, that is old news that was dealt with by GM...but please share if you know.
    • Granbia is wholesale only, GFHarvest you can order and they ship anywhere sales under http://www.glutenfreeoats.com/gluten-free-oatmeal/

      Sorry to be the jumpy rabbit, but once bitten twice shy, I recall when they first came out with gluten-free cheerios....yeah it was worse back then and that pain and trickery will not be forgiven.
    • Oh, and how much do Granbia and GFHarvest cost, and how available are these cereals?
