Halloween Candy
0

11 posts in this topic

This is our first Halloween gluten-free, since my oldest daughter was just diagnosed with a gluten allergy. I looked on a PDF from this website listing all gluten-free candy/chocolate, but the updates listed were from 02-04. We also look for products without maltodextrin, modified corn/food starch and MSG.

I'm having problems finding ingredients on Hershey's and Mars products in particular, as they are not posted on their websites. Snack size products, like the ones given on Halloween, do not list ingredients so I cannot check. I have submitted e-mail requests for ingredients information from both candy makers.

I know Toostie Rolls are gluten-free per their website and I've checked ingredients on M&Ms, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers and various Wonka products. I'm right now looking for 3 Musketeers, Starbursts, Hershey bars, Twizzlers, and LifeSavers.

Does anyone have any insight for me or an updated list?

Thanks!

Beth

Hi.

From what I know it goes like this....Starbursts, Skittles, Nerds, Runts, & Laffy Taffy's are gluten-free. Lifesaver Gummies are gluten-free. Not sure about regular kind. I'm also not sure about 3 Musketeers. My memory says it's not though. Milky Way Midnight (not regular kind) are gluten-free. Some Hershey's minis are gluten-free are and some are not. Not sure which is which. Hershey kisses are gluten-free. Jellybellies are gluten-free. Also not sure about Twizzlers. I bet someone else knows and will post.

Happy Trick or Treating! :P

Twizzlers are NOT gluten free! In fact, it is very hard to find a gluten free licorice as most contain wheat. I love red licorice and have never found a gluten free version. :angry:

Twizzlers are not gluten-free. I know Butterfinger, PayDay, all 3 Musketeers, Skittles, Baby Ruth, Almond Joy, Junior Mints, Nerds and Laffy Taffy are all gluten-free.

Here's a great list:

Oh no, I was interested in checking out the list, but the board changed the url to "Lame Advertisement." Can you maybe type it out differently (like connceliac dot ____ slash candy dot htm)?

Mars will disclose any gluten in their ingredients (they will not hide it in other ingredients). I think three musketeers is made my Mars, so all you need to do is read the label. I think I remember it being gluten free. Wonka/Nestle will also disclose their ingredients. Last October when I called Tootsie Roll they said ALL of their products are gluten free. Palmers makes seasonal candy and they have a gluten free list online. You cannot assume anything made by Hersheys (like Peanut Butter cups) are gluten free unless it is plain chocolate or chocolate with almonds.

Running Rabbit used to make a gluten-free red licorice, but I recently read that they have gone out of business. Candy Tree is another gluten-free red licorice option.
