M&Ms are a candy that should always be stocked in your pantry. When I initially started eating gluten-free a few years ago, one of the first things I wondered was whether or not M&Ms contained gluten.

The quick answer is yes. However, they are not gluten-free products verified by the Gluten Intolerance Company. If it was, they would have that fancy stamp indicating that they are certified to be gluten-free, which would provide you a considerable rise in the amount of peace of mind you have. They have approved more than 60,000 different goods, so who knows?

According to the ingredient list, some flavors of M&Ms do contain gluten, so you need to be cautious and read the labels carefully to avoid becoming sick from eating them.
