I recently found an article printed in a Triumph Dining blog that announces some good news for those of you who are gluten-free with a chocolate addiction! For the original article, click here. However, here is the story:
Finally, feast your eyes on the list of Hershey’s gluten-free products
that they nicely assembled for the gluten-free community. MmmMmmMmmm!
Butterscotch baking chips, Almond Joys, York Peppermint Patties, dark
chocolate syrups…. the whole nine yards! Please do keep in mind, not all
of Hershey’s candies are gluten-free and an assortment of their seasonal
sweets contain gluten ingredients – like their seasonal-shaped Reese’s
peanut butter cups.
Here’s to a more feasible indulgence of gluten-free sweets!
Also, Hershey’s recently went on the record to issue a press release
to clear up the water about the relationship between their index of
products and the gluten-free standards defined by the FDA. Below is the
printed disclosure that you can find on their website regarding which
Hershey’s products are qualified, by FDA standards, to be labeled
“Hershey is committed to providing products that meet your dietary
needs, and many people today are interested in gluten-free foods.
A food bearing a gluten-free claim does not contain the protein from
wheat, rye, barley, spelt, kamut, triticole, farina, vital gluten
semolina, malt vinegar or protein derivatives of these foods.
your convenience, the current products listed below have been fully
evaluated and qualify as gluten free using standards proposed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
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.”
