WRIGLEY'S (1-800-974-4539)

Wrigley's online gluten-free statement is kind of wishy washy. They state that most products are gluten-free but others might not be and do not specify which ones they are talking about. I contacted them today, 4/15/14 and they said that nothing they make requires gluten, therefore they are considered gluten-free.

HOWEVER, Altoids Smalls Peppermint Mints contain gluten in the form of wheat maltodextrin.

According to my conversation with their customer service rep the following are 100% gluten-free in the United States.

Creme Savers

Hope that you found this list helpful!
