Posted on October 3rd, 2010 by Alison Read 21 Comments - Add Your Own »

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS FROM 2010. THE 2011 HALLOWEEN LIST IS HERE: Allergen-Free Halloween Candy Quick List 2011


This is a 2010 quick list of Halloween candy with ingredients that are gluten-free and free of the top 8 allergens. I have included a package statement if it mentions allergens. For a more complete listing, along with company allergy statements, please read the Halloween Candy List – Gluten-Free Allergen-Free – 2010. For a gluten-free listing only, please read the Gluten-Free Halloween Candy Quick List 2010. To print this list, click on the Print icon above the title. If you don’t see the print icon, click on the title of the article first.

NOTE for bloggers: If you are going to post or share this list, would you be so kind as to give me credit and link to me? This took many hours of my life and I even got kicked out of Walgreen’s for taking notes in the candy aisle, so please be considerate of my hard work! 🙂

  1. Hi, thank you for all of your hard work! I think you should have the spiders eyes light up this year! even better add a smoke machine from behind 🙂
    Happy gluten free haunting

  2. Tracy – I like the light up eyes idea! I will think about that one. 🙂

  3. Allison,
    Thank you so much for creating this amazing list. I am looking forward to trick or treating for the first time in 5.5 years!

  4. i can’t thank you enough for the time and energy you spent on this.

  5. Thank you!!! This is wonderful. I will be letting all my friends who have kids with allergies know about your site and this list.

  6. Thank you so much! This will make my son’s holiday so much more fun, and thanks for reducing my stress and time spent standing in the cany aisle!

  7. This is a great list..Thank you so much for all of your hard work!

  8. Thank you SO very much for the time and dedication you have put on this allegy free list. My daughter will be able to safely celebrate Halloween!

  9. Thanks for the info. My son also has dye allergies (red and yellow) in addition to the food allergies, so we avoid all dyes. Cutting out dyes reduces the options to close to zero, unfortunately. We have to stick with organic products that use fruit and veggies for the coloring.

  10. You rock!! Thank you for all the research and hard work you put into this to make being mom to a little guy with Celiac a whole lot easier!!

  11. Thanks for all your hard work! I do have a note re Jelly Belly Jellybeans. I talked w/a staffer at their distrib center in WI 2 weeks ago and while they have been peanut free for at least 3 years, they are NOT treenut free. They do process candies with treenuts in the same facilities as the jelly beans. She flat out told me that individuals with treenut allergies are advised NOT to eat their candies. I do not know how their products are labeled. (We buy Surf Sweets for jellies/gummies.) Happy Halloween!

  12. Thank you! This is our first dairy-free halloween and I’ve felt a bit overwhelmed – your list has really helped me. 🙂

  13. I did a post on candies with soy and I linked to this post:


  14. YOU ABSOLUTELY ROCK! Can’t thank you enough for doing this. THANK YOU from the bottom of our sensitive little hearts!!

  15. Thank you!! This means a lot to my family :)..I also want to add that Dum Dum’s made around holidays sometimes are made in facilities that also produce products with nuts..tree and peanut..not sure why since their main facility is allergy free. But during certain holidays (the holiday packs of Dum Dums)are not made in the allergy free facility. Thank you again for all your hard work!!

  16. Thank you soooooo much for doing this. You are literally a life saver. My son has food allergies-bad nut and tree nut allergies.

  17. Great site. Wonder if there is a similar site out there for vegans? Would also love to know who is your webhost. Love the way this looks! Simple and elegant and easy to navigate.

  18. Thanks so much for taking the time to do this! This is so helpful!

  19. Thank you soooo much! I am very grateful that I found your site. I found out yesterday that my child’s class is having a last minute Christmas party. We need all gluten free foods to make a gingerbread house, etc. This was so helpful!!!!!

  20. Thanks so much for compiling this. With a child with milk protein allergen, sorting through Valentine’s day candy was always a bit of a hassle. Thanks so much. Sid’s Dad.

  21. Thank you very, very much. I’m celiac and you can’t immagine how thankful I am. I live in a very small town and my friends only know of one other celiac in town so that might tell you how much knowledge of gluten-free is floating around (including pharmacies and other businesses), so people who go thru the trouble of gathering information and sharing it (like you) are very appreciated. Thanks again.
