Halloween is coming up…YAY! Â But because Halloween and candy go together like peanut better and jelly, my sister and I started looking for candy options. Â My sister is gluten-free (not by choice) and so we decided to look up some candy that she can eat, as well as me! Â The good news is that we found some candy that we both already like and didn’t even know it was gluten free!
Because being gluten-free is now a fad, I thought I would share some candy that Mia and I recently found out were free from that terrible gluten!
Jelly Belly’s are gluten-free! I was really excited to read this because my family basically grew up on jelly belly’s! They’re so so good. If you are wondering, my favorite is Cotton Candy! Â But they are made and packaged in the same facility as malt-balls so I would make 100% sure that are really gluten-free and no cross-contamination.
Reese’s cups are gluten-free! Â I do not actually like Reese’s cups, however Mia does and I am very happyÂ that they are free from gluten! Â The Holiday shapes are not gluten-free, but who needs awkwardly shaped candy?
Heath Bars are another Mia favorite! Â Although I don’t like the chocolate, I usually scrape it off and eat the english toffee. Â When Mia found out that she can eat Heath is was jumping. Â Okay, we were in a car when I told her, so she wasn’t jumping, but she was rather excited.
Mike and Ike
Yes, Mike and Ike’s are gluten-free! I feel like Mike and Ike’s are a staple in every child’s life. No..? Just mine? Ok. Â Anyway, I enjoy a casual box of Mike and Ike’s and I’m glad Mia can join me.
If you didn’t come home with a few handfuls of smarties in your Halloween bag, you were trick-or-treating in the wrong area. Â I love smarties! Â When you’re looking through your kids (if you have any) bags, it’s nice to know that these are in fact gluten-free.
Haribo Golden Bears
Gummy bears are gluten-free! I don’t think I’ve ever received these in my Halloween bag, however I think it’s important to know that these are able to enjoy while living that gluten-free lifestyle.
