World's Finest Chocolate Gluten Free Information

I made a big boo-boo this weekend. DH bought some World's Finest Chocolate bars from some kid. He got crisped rice and plain milk chocolate. I read the ingredients on the crisped rice bar and it clearly stated it was derived from wheat. Everything else looked fine - so I ate the milk chocolate bar without reading the ingredients! Then, as I was most of the way through the bar, I looked at the ingredients and noticed that it listed ground almonds and crisped rice. I thought it had to be a typo and kept on eating. DUMB!

Anyway, it was Saturday and the response to my email is below. Now, obviously this person does not understand what gluten is, since she thinks barley malt is made from wheat, but that mistake is actually in our favor since they list the crisped rice as derived from wheat.

World's Finest Chocolate's 1.75 oz fun raising bars are all run on the same line that also processes a bar with crisp rice. The crisp rice has a component that is derived from wheat ( malt barley) in it.

That is why it is stated on the end of the ingredient line on the bars' wrapper, and persons sensitive to gluten should not consume it.
