Where do you find Bazooka bubble gum (kosher for passover)?

I see that Erewhon Rice Twice cereal is not on the list. Was there reactions reported?

We have found safe dried crispy fruit in small bags that are wonderful at www.crispygreen.com

Has anyone reported a reaction to Suzanne's Ricemellow? I have had a couple of reactions, and have decided not to use it. I have corn and gluten allergies.

I recently inquired if Gallexier Herbal Bitters were corn and gluten free. The company, Flora Health, confirmed that the fructose was fruit rather than corn derived. They sent an entire printout of information. If anyone is interested in finding out more, the website is: http://www.florahealth.com
They were wonderful and very caring.

Adams Respiratory Therapeutics just replied to my request about whether Mucinex 600 mg Extended-Release Tablets is gluten and corn free. They sent me a long e-mail reply that it was indeed free of gluten and corn. If anyone would like a copy of this detailed e-mail, please feel free to contact me at grapenut21@yahoo.com

Just thought I'd share this info. with other corn and gluten free people if it isn't already known.
