Gluten-Free Halloween Candy: What Can I Eat?

Another Halloween has come and gone. I hope you all got lots of good treats!

As kids, my sister and I used to dump all our candy on the living room floor and sort our goods into piles. Candy we loved, candy we’d share with our parents (which was candy we usually didn’t love…sorry Mom and Dad!) and candy that was no good. At that time, I never had to worry about what candy I couldn’t have.

Now as an adult I realize Halloween candy can be slim picking when it comes to what is allergen friendly.

Thankfully there are great websites that list all candy that is gluten-free, check out VeryWell.com to see what is safe to eat in your Halloween stash!

Why the teal pumpkin? The teal pumpkin symbolizes The Teal Pumpkin Project – an initiative to raise awareness of food allergies and promote inclusion of safe treats for all trick-or-treaters. Next year remember to support this project, check out the link here.

One more sleep until Halloween!

I not only love Halloween for the surplus of chocolate, but I love dressing up. It’s fun to be something “different” for the evening or for a party. When I was a kid I used to plan my costume months and months before!

Wouldn’t it be neat if we could dress up to be able to enjoy all the gluten-filled candies like KitKat bars and Coffee Crisps? Only in our dreams, right? 

Fortunately there are a few gluten-free candies we can still enjoy. My top five favourite gluten-free Halloween candies are:

  1. Nestle Aero
  2. Cadbury Dairy Milk
  3. Maynard’s Wine Gums
  4. Maynard’s Fuzzy Peaches
  5. Chiclet’s Gum
