This is the first year since our 9-year-old son has been diagnosed with Celiac too. Now there are two gluten-free goblins in our house. So just like last year, I made myself a handy, alphabetized list of all the mainstream candies he might get that should be gluten-free (as of Oct 29, 2013). I went more than a little crazy about this! I visited every single manufacturer’s website and/or contacted them via phone or email to ensure no gluten comes into our house. It was no small task; it took over a week to complete!! But now I feel so much better about keeping our little man safe and healthy for his first gluten-free Halloween.
I created the list below for my family’s use and am posting it for your reference only. I can’t possibly guarantee these to be gluten-free; ingredients often change and contamination can happen. So some information listed could contain unintentional errors. I strongly encourage you to check the ingredient label on each individual package before you eat anything. Also, there are some valuable Warnings at the end, so check those before diggin’ into your haul. Remember: when in doubt, leave it out!
