Happy Halloween- GFCF candy

It's Halloween time!! I LOVE Halloween! I asked Thomas over at The GFCF Experience to post a list of GFCF candy and here is a list of what he posted, click here to read the whole post:

Starburst Fruit Chews - The original fruit chews, others may or may not be GFCF.

Skittles - same as above. both Starburst and Skittles have cream varieties that I don't think are CF.

Lollipops - DumDums and Charms are GFCF, as are most lollipops that do not have a cream component in them. Tootsie Pops are a definite no no here!!!
Sweet Tarts


Smarties - Note that the Smarties necklaces reportedly contain gluten.

NECCO Wafers

Jolly Rancher Hard Candy


Bottle Caps

Pixy Sticks



Gum - Double-Bubble, Wrigleys, Trident (NOTE: read labels and watch out for Recaldent, a casein derivative, in some gums)

Mike and Ike

Haribo Gummy Bears

Jelly Beans - Starburst, SOME Jelly Belly, Jolly Rancher, Mars (PLEASE READ LABELS!!)

ACT II Popcorn Balls

Mary Jane's

Candy Corn and Candy Pumpkin - most of these are GFCF, but we have seen some that are not. Again, you need to read the labels to be sure.

Farley's Candy and Sather's Candy - Farley's and Sather's sell bags of candies, like gummy worms or candy corn or other hard candy. But on their website, they do not include liGFCF information, citing the fact that ingredients do often change. They offer you the option of filling out an on-line request form, or simply calling them at 1-888-247-9855 to request the GFCF information. AND MAKE SURE YOU READ THE LABELS.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!
