Candy, Just A General List

Recommended Posts

The girls at work always bring something to snack on, and I get so tired of refusing their treats. I'd love a list of all the candy and munchies out there that are gluten-free so I can join in :D

First, you can do a search of this forum for candy, instead of making a new thread like you did.

The list I have is 12 pages long...you can find it at sillyyak.com or something like that.

For Easter, you can have most Cadbury treats, Jelly Belly Jellybeans, Marshmallow Peeps.

In general, you have to be cautious of mini sizes of any candy- often different recipes.

You can have lots of Hershey's candy, Ghirardelli chocolate, too.

YOu can have 3 Muskateers, Snickers, M&Ms, Baby Ruth, Butterfinger, and lots of Willie Wonka candy.

NO LICORICE as far as I know.

You can have Reese's PB Cups, and Charleston Chew. You can have some gummy candies, I forgot the brand.

So, look up the list and ENJOY!


Gluten Free since November 2005

The list is actually on a yahoo group called Silly Yaks. It is a wonderful list. I printed it out and sent it to my son's teacher. She likes to bring in treats/prizes for the kids and she can now go off of the list.

I know of two kinds of licorice that are gluten-free. Running Rabbit is one and it actually has the licorice flavor even in the cherry and raspberry flavors. I can get it at one of the local grocery stores. One that I've ordered online is Candy Tree Organic. It's fruit flavored and more like Twizzlers.

Hey,

I gotta try that licorice!! Sounds silly, but Twizzlers and Nibs used to be my favorite!
