OK, so I started bringing out my Fall decorations and now I'm getting my usual annual craving for candy corn! Brach's used to be the only brand I really liked and realize that they can't guarantee it's gluten-free. I checked the history for this topic and the latest it's been brought up was about 2 years ago. Does anyone know if anything's changed? I live in the Midwest - what brand of cc is just as good as Brach's but safe to eat?

Thanks!

As of last fall, Target brand was safe as well, and it's also quite good.

I was at Target this past weekend and they did not have their brand of candy corn this year. I'm not sure if it was just not out yet, but all of the Halloween section was set and no candy corn but Brachs. Im in upstate NY. My 5 yr old was bummed!! I'll look for the Walmart brand..HTH

It seems like Target didn't put out there brand of Candy Corn this year. I combed the aisles with my daughter and son yesterday, no luck. Just Brachs.

Bummer.
p.s. we are in northern mass.

I am in Michigan and I only found fancy little bags of Target brand candy corn this year. It is flavored and colored differently than traditional candy corn - like mango with something and pink or lemonade and something and purple. I bought some because it was Target brand but it does say that it shares equipment with peanuts and other stuff. I am going to tell my daughter that she can only have a couple (I got them for a school project). I have not tried Wal-Mart this year. Wasn't up to the drive. Wishing you luck!

Hi.

Jelly Belly candy corn is supposed to be gluten free too. Probably a bit pricey though.

I, too, am a candy corn fiend. Mmmmm! :P
