Let’s answer your question:

Are Starburst Gluten Free?

The answer is: YES (but only in the USA, see below)

Starburst Candies

The information provided on The Wrigley Company website is vague.

We discovered that if you’re in the United States, you can consider Starburst candy (including seasonal candy) to be gluten-free. However, if you are outside the USA, you may want to contact The Wrigley Company for further clarification.

All U.S. Wrigley chewing gum and confectionery products are gluten-free with the exception of some products, (for example, Altoids Smalls Peppermint Mints) which contain ingredients derived from wheat or are made on shared equipment that also processes products with wheat and may contain trace amounts of gluten.

Such products are not labelled as ‘gluten-free’ and on their labels, it is clearly mentioned that they contain wheat-derived ingredients like wheat maltodextrin, wheat fibre, or wheat flour.
