I don't need to say much else. You can e-mail the creator of this list (see below) to get it in Adobe or Word format. Of course, always confirm w/ the manufacturer:

If you want a copy of this updated gluten-free Candy List with cute graphics (as a Word doc file, or as an Adobe pdf file, please email me and I can send you a copy.  Please put REQUEST CANDY LIST WORD OR REQUEST CANDY LIST ADOBE so I will know which file format to send you.)  Please send your requests to:  OneSillyYak@yahoo.com



Gluten Free Candy & Easter Candy 2005

Disclaimer:  This list is for reference only and the user should contact manufacturers directly.  It is a guideline and the user accepts full responsibility for use of it.  At the time of its posting, it is believed to be accurate with current gluten-free information.  As a gluten-free consumer, you are responsible for making your own food selections.  I am not a medical expert, Im a mom of a Celiac pre-schooler who is always on a quest for gluten-free knowledge.



Notes:  Please beware of candy that is not in its normal shape.  Often times, that means the ingredients are different, and could very well contain gluten.  Bags of mixed treats that do have gluten containing treats that touch each other should be discarded due to cross-contamination.  If there is a treat that may not be listed on here, do not be alarmed just check with the manufacturer.  I couldnt get them all on here and Im sure there are some I have forgotten.



Thanks:  I would like to thank all of the people who have shared information to make this list possible including several ROCK leaders (Sue of NJ ROCK, Carrie of Reno ROCK, and Melissa of TampaBay ROCK) who consistently share their information with me and our ROCK Northern Virginia chapter.  Id also like to thank Lindsay Amadeo of Iowa (who maintains a wonderful gluten-free commercial product listing which includes many tricks and treats), SillyYaks Yahoo!groups members including Judy Kramer, and members of the St. Johns Celiac List Serv.  Thanks to EVERYONE who responded in my quest for updating my list from last year.

          Wonka: check label.  Gluten will be listed as wheat, rye, barley or oats  Wonka Statement:  Thank you for contacting us.  Your comments regarding Nestl & Wonka Products are very important to us. In regards to your inquiry, there are eight major food allergens, including milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts (such as walnuts and almonds), soy, wheat, fish and shellfish. Labeling regulation requires that all ingredients added to products be listed in the ingredient statement.  For these eight major allergens, Nestl ensures that they are labeled, regardless of the amount or whether a supplier may have added it to their ingredient.  It is the responsibility of Nestl to ensure that these ingredients are properly labeled by their common or usual name in the ingredient statement. We want to help our consumers avoid inadvertent ingestion of their specific allergens of concern by accurately informing them about the product ingredients and by following Good Manufacturing Practices in our factories.  All factories using a critical allergen as an ingredient must take all  reasonable precautions to avoid cross-contact of products that do not normally contain these allergens and products that do not carry a specific mention in the ingredient statement.  These precautionary measures include efficient cleaning of production lines and equipment And strict separation of materials that may contain critical allergens.  If an allergen does not appear on the ingredient statement, then it has not been added to the product and the likelihood of cross-contamination contact is so extremely low that the risk is insignificant.  We have also attached a copy of our gluten-free confection list.  We hope you find it helpful.  We appreciate the opportunity to be of service to you and hope your inquiry was handled to your satisfaction.  Nestl Confections & Snacks Gluten Free Products: This information includes products, which, to the best of our knowledge, do not contain wheat, rye, or barley/malt ingredients.  The list may not be complete subsequent to the date of issue due to formula changes and new product information.  Please read each product ingredient statement for the most current information.: Candy Bars-Baby Ruth; Butterfinger; Chunky; Nestl Milk Chocolate; Oh Henry!

        NOT GLUTEN FREE Willy Wonka Oompas

          NOT GLUTEN FREE Zachary Brand Candy Corn (In regards to the e-mail that we recently received regarding the use of the listed ingredients used in the manufacturing of Candy Corn I must explain that these types of candies are technically gluten free.  However, we do in our facility have other items that do have ingredients that contain gluten ingredients and unfortunately we do not have the area in our manufacturing facility to segregate these items from one another.  Therefore there is an opportunity for there to be cross contact with storage containers and manufacturing equipment that could potentially lead to these candy corn items having trace ingredients of gluten.  So unfortunately I cannot guarantee one hundred percent that even though these candies do not contain any ingredients that contain gluten that this product had not come in contact with items and equipment that have.  Obviously we are very sympathetic as food manufacturers with issues such as allergens and other intolerances.  It is our desire to have as many people as possible to enjoy our candies and be able to eat them without fear of any health consequences.  However as a small manufacturing facility we cannot go to the lengths and measures that larger companies can in regards to segregation of ingredients, washing of equipment between shifts or having a separate facility to manufacture only certain products containing problem ingredients and thereby eliminating cross contamination issues.  I wish I had a more positive answer for your question but unfortunately in cases like this I would rather be sure than to indicate that there is nothing in the candies and have something happen that could jeopardize someones precious health.

OPTIONS FOR DEALING WITH CANDY

THAT DOES CONTAIN GLUTEN:

        Donate it to your local food bank

        Gather it together & leave it on the kitchen table with a note to The Pumpkin Fairy.  The Pumpkin Fairy is notorious for swooping down your chimney and taking the unhealthy candy and leaving one nice treat that is generally a non-edible toy.

        Have gluten-free goodies on hand to trade your child for the unsafe stuff

        Save it to use for making a Gingerbread house for the holidays (just for viewing, of course!)

        Some dentists will accept your childs candy and will trade it for some healthy options

        Sort it, buy it back from your child, allow him/her to use that money to buy more gluten-free goodies

        Sort it, separate it, toss it

        Sort it, separate it, trade it with another child who can have that candy & trade for the gluten-free goodies
