When you’re gluten-free, sometimes the holiday festivities can be a bit less-than-festive since we often find ourselves spending a great deal of time worrying about what is, and what is not, safe to eat while we’d rather just be enjoying the festivities like everyone else. Around Halloween, for children with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity, this is especially concerning. With class parties at school, fun fall festivals and of course, trick-or-treating, risks seem to be lurking at every turn when it comes to gluten contamination.
I put together this 2016 Gluten-Free Halloween Candy List, which I update every September, to help you make gluten-free candy selections this fall, and any other time your sweet tooth strikes.
Note: this list is not all-inclusive but I’ve tried to make sure the top Halloween/fall treats are here, as well as mainstream brands. I’ve included a few specialty allergen-free candies, too.
