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:
http://gfreelife.com...een-candy-list/

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.naturalca...uten-free-candy

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