Oh The Sadness Of Halloween...
0

9 posts in this topic

While my kids don't go trick or treating, I do give out candy and my kids usually get the leftovers

My son is already looking at it and asking So what can I have. I told him probably nothing. He looked so sad.

Are there any gluten free halloween candies? I could take the time to research, but frankly right now we're trying to figure out what real foods he can eat. Any quick answers?

Thank you!!

Check out the "My Gluten Facts" website www.myglutenfacts.com/events/gluten-free-halloween-candy-list-2011. They have halloween lists that are updated every year, and have different lists for both Canada and the U.S. (not sure which country you're in but hopefully one of these will help).

I have been giving our Herseys milk chocolate bars, I am allergic to casian's but I seem to be able to eat them. I buy them real close to the day cause I don't want to eat them all. They have the small mouthful bars not cheap but good.

With food allergies and Celiac, DS can't have any candy. We do the Switch Witch here who takes the candy and leaves toys (Lego's this year).

Also, we give out goodie bags free of candy to T-or-Ters, This way no kid will be left out no matter if they do/don't have food issues!

Plenty of candies are gluten-free. No reason to be sad.

Another list of gluten-free candies:

And I had an email (I can't remember which gluten-free website it was from...!) and they listed these two options:

Natural Candy Store: http://www.naturalcandystore.com/category/gluten-free-candy

glutensmart (which had a Halloween basket already filled with candy -- half-price right now!): http://www.glutensmart.com/gluten-free-halloween-basket.html

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
