    This list is great. I am wondering about Skittles. I know they are labeled gluten free. Also, Reese peanut butter cups or pieces I am sure they are gluten free. Just curious why they are in your picture & not on your list?

    Thank so you much for this list and your site! It has made my life so much easier here in the past month or so! Especially since my gluten intolerance has gotten extremely bad. My boyfriend always has a hard time buying me sweets because he doesn’t know what I can and can’t have. This list is a HUGE help! Thanks!

    Natalie, not only are you beautiful, you are a beautiful soul for publishing this list. Currently I have nobody in my life with Celiac Disease, but my mother, rest her soul, had it, and had to research – painfully and often for months – each and every processed item she used – even the soaps, shampoos, and yes, perfume she wore. You are an angel, and join my list of personal heroes for this.

    Thanks for this! It’s been a few months since I discovered my wheat allergies. It’s gotten progressively worse as they affect my asthma and I’ve begun to ban certain products from the house. I thought we would have to ban all candy. So I really appreciate it.
