Guest ~jules~

First of all happy halloween everyone! This is my first year with celiac, every year I raid the kids candy bags after they go to bed (they don't need all that anyways!!! :P ) Could someone please just throw out some candy bars or other little tid bits that are known to be okay for us? Let me pick your brain! So far I know I am safe with the kraft caramels and hersheys chocolate, there has to be more????

Hershey's and carmels sound like the good pickings to me!!! I can't have either because of the dairy!!!

What are your favorites? If you post them, then we can tell you.

There is a giant list in one of the threads that is about safe candy. Happy raiding everyone. Good news for the Almond Joy and Bottle cap lovers out there...apparently they are safe! Hee hee

Hi Guys,

Happy Halloween to you all ..

Here in Australia we cant eat m&ms or snickers cause they contain gluten dont understand why things like that vary from country to country there are other things also i've read on here only to find out there not gluten free here... sigh... sorry just having a whinge....

I'm eating my Break Bar right now!!! My daughter's bag of candy she lucked out with mostly safe stuff...and I traded her out for the unsafe stuff... (daddy took all the gluten...) So I saw the Kit Kat and started to cry then I remembered I had Break Bars hidden in the fridge! LOL!

A Halloween story!!!!

Grandkids out treat or treating , ages 8 & 5. The five year old goes first & the lady hands him a pkg. of peanut butter crackers. He says" Oh I can't have these because they have wheat in them". The lady looked at him in a rude way & says "Oh no they don't ,its a cracker"!!!!!He then turns to us & shakes his head & tells her that crackers are made from wheat! She comes back with "NO HONEY" they are made from flour!!!!!!!!!!!DUH!!! At this point we told him to take the crackers & Daddy would eat them.

We have been teaching him to look at food & try to read the label for certain words.It's pretty bad when a kid knows what flour comes from & an adult doesn't... We really never thought he would refuse any halloween stuff so we were totaly shocked when he went into the discussion about wheat.

I guess our lessons on Wheat have really been tattooed into his brain.... Now if only the older one can get it & not try to cheat at school!!!!!

I think he would have argued the wheat /flour issue all night...When we got home & was sorting good & bad treats he started to laugh when we got to the crackers...Then he said " I don't think she was a very smart lady"... Out of the mouths of babes...... I really wanted to agree...
