Lindt

This one causes dramas every year because Lindt has an annoying statement on their website that implies all products with barley malt extract (like all the ones below) are gluten free.

I have messaged them directly but had no reply. Last year, I spoke to Coeliac UK who said they’d also been unable to verify the products were gluten free. I’ve seen loads of contradicting comments on Instagram and FB groups but as it stands, until Coeliac UK say otherwise, I am considering these not safe.

If you have heard differently, please tell me!

  • Lindt Red Eggs (big ones and mini packets)
  • Lindt Gold Bunny And Family Hutch
  • Lindt Mini Eggs Milk Chocolate With Creamy Filling
  • All the bunnies except the white one!
