I know this is super late, but as Halloween is tomorrow, I thought it would be appropriate to write about safe candies for gfreers to eat.
Most candies are usually gluten free except for ones that have cookie bits or other flour products inside the candy or are processed in a facility that also processes wheat. Here is a non-exhaustive list of safe and not safe products to eat:
GLUTEN FREE CANDY
Laffy Taffy - this stuff is nastyyy in my opinion (no offense to LT lovers out there! I still love you, don't worry. Oh and I always threw away the banana flavor for some reason. Did anyone else do that??)
Milk or dark chocolate plain
M&Ms original (other M&Ms might have cross contamination so check the label!!)
3 Musketeers Bar
Milky Way- Midnight and caramel
Dove chocolate (YUM)
Tootsie rolls (these things get stuck to my teeth really bad... therefore not my #1 choice)
Hershey's Milk Chocolate Kisses
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
York Peppermint pattie
Jelly Belly (has anyone tried any of those Harry Potter flavors and LIKED it? Comment below!)
Mike and Ike
Most gummies (gummy worms, gummy bears etc)
NON-GFREE CANDY (and therefore not delicious and you shouldn't ever buy them) hahaha jk, but no, really don't buy them.
All the Butterfingers besides original (yeah I never liked Butterfinger anyway)
100 Grand Bar
Milky Way original (why they would not make the original bar gluten free is beyond me)
Mars Bar (anyone know what this is??)
Hershey's Cookies 'N' Creme Bar (I used to love this so much... goodbye old friend...)
Crunch bars (malt in crunchy rice bits)
As always, READ THE LABEL. I can never stress this enough. Also, call the company if you are unsure about anything at all. They should be able to answer most of your questions. And if you just don't want to do the previous, just use common sense!
And that's it! Happy Halloween to all and stay safe everyone!
And now some candy pics to get you pumped for whatever you're doing on Halloween. Enjoy!
GUMMIES!!! Aren't they cute?
An army of gummies!
A handful from this bowl multiplied by 100+ houses gives you...
