    Not to be a Debby Downer, but for you celiacs out there- Lindt isn't considered gluten free. Per their website.

    The 70% and above doesn't contain the barley malt as does the lesser percentages, but is run on the same lines. They make no mention of cleaning lines to prevent cross contamination.

    This probably isn't a concern to the non-celiac, but cross contamination such as this keeps the celiac or really gluten sensitive, feeling bad and wondering why- even when they knowingly aren't consuming anything with gluten ingredients.


    That's my PSA for the day!

      I appreciate the information! I'm not celiac, but I fall under that category being allergic to barley!

      Sometimes you have to wonder... WHY do they add that crap to chocolate? Or anything? Barley belongs in bread and beer...not chocolate.
      Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

        Because their marketing research tells them that people like it better with than without. Same reason all but a few breakfast cereals have barley malt in them.

          Yeah...probably why the few cereals that don't, have soy in them. I have seen soy in cereal. Wtf! Plain rice crispys and plain chex are the only cereals I have found without extra ingredients, not that it's worth eating them in the first place.

            Oh, like, say... cancer-encouraging BHT? Double check Chex! I thought about getting some for my gluten sensitive kid, but the BHT scared me off.

              I don't eat them anymore, but when I did, I scanned for various food allergens. I have no idea what BHT is, but I don't recall seeing it. I'll have to check next time I'm not at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods.

              I think Rice Crispys are fairly straight forward, though.

                Both Rice Krispies and Rice Chex used to have malt flavoring in them. This is a recent change.

                  It's like the cereal industry is trying to kill me. Thanks for the tip!

                    Oh shit, it's processed - it's going to KILL you! Avoid, avoid, avoid!!!

                      Can you explain to me what Primal is, again?

                        I don't care about it being primal or not. Chocolate is the one thing from modern times that you should not be afraid of (unless you have some weird sensitivity, which is simple tough luck!).

                        For the Europeans lurking in these forums, I found that the UK brand Plamil does a decent chocolate sweetened solely with xylitol. Their "milk choc" is crap (using soy as milk subs - I tried once and will never try again - tastes like earth and I don't like soy anyway) but their dark choc, although not the best in the world, is quite nice and the one with hemp seeds in it has a round flavor to it that I really enjoy. And xylitol is good for you, regardless of what folks might say (processed stuff, gas, bloating, blabla).

                          Negatory on eating xylitol; I bought some as a sugar replacer, and it screwed up my digestive flora quite good for some time, so I won't be eating anymore of it. It is also extemely toxic to pets; just a little bit can kill a dog. Conversely, the best toothpastes and gums are xylitol rich; it has a strong anti-bacterial effect and is good for those things (small quantities, restricted to the mouth). But not good to eat in large amounts, as it will go on to kill the good bacteria lower in your digestive tract.

                            Well you might not care, but some people do because the fine line is different for them. I'm just putting it out there.

                              Someone who thinks that eating store bought chocolate is detrimental to their Primal lifestyle probably wouldn't be reading this thread.

                              I like me some chocolate.
