  1. Thank you for your hard work. These lists will help so much for my Celiac daughter this Halloween to stay; GF an Milk free.

  2. thank you for your hard work at gain access the these lists. they are extreamly helpful.
    I only eat a small amount of candy but our Campus Life club at the local high school we hand out lots of candy to kids. Last week a young lady came up to me, and in a mousie voice said, “I can’t have anything with gluten in it. Do you know what gluten is?”
    I laughed at her and in the most cheerful voice I said, “YES!” I totally understand, I too can’t eat gluten!
    She smiled at me and run off to join her friends.
    just a little story.thank you again!

  3. Hi Alison,

    Great list. When we called M&Ms, they said that they shared the same line with the pretzel M&Ms.


  4. Thanks Alison,
    I’ve linked your list on our facebook page and plan to include a link on our newsletter. Your list is the most comprehensive I’ve seen. I would however add a disclosure about sizes of candy bars. The CSA has mentioned previously that the mini Hershey bars have an extreme potential for cross-contamination due to the way that they are processed. Additionally, I believe that DIVVIES is produced on equipment that processes wheat and not cleaned thoroughly between batches. I last checked there facility about 16 months ago.
    Keep up the awesome work!

  5. Great! Happy halloween! From nyc tons of good wishes for u and family ;) thanks a lot.

  6. I got sick last time I ate M&Ms and wrote them, they told me that M&Ms Plain share the same room with the Pretzel M&Ms.


    Also, Reesees minatures and snack sizes aren’t always safe, they have had wheat listed on the label and I got very sick from it.

  8. Sarah,
    You are correct – Milky Way is not GF, but on the list I put Milky Way Midnight and Milky Way Simply Caramel, which do not contain barley malt. I have never heard of Reese’s containing wheat.

  9. Alison,

    Thank you for this extensive list. I was pleased to see that some of my favorite candies are GF! Reading the labels can still be confusing.

    Thanks So Much,


  10. This is a fantastic list. I was at the candy store w my goddaughter, who is gluten free. The one we normally go to, that hands us an approved list, was closed. I was paralyzed with fear thinking we would get something with gluten in it and requested to see a label for every candy she considered. We will take this one with us! Best, “Aunti Mi”

  11. Michelle,
    Glad I could help!

  12. i have noticed many foods have at the bottom of the ingredients – gluten free. wouldn,t it be just the best and easiest for all to do?

  13. [...] this list is a GUIDE only–read all labels before letting your child go wild with the candy bag! please click here for Sure Foods Living quick list of gluten free candy 2011   [...]

  14. Thank you so much for all your research and hard work. This is a wonderful resource to have at my disposal. This was a gift…truly.

  15. Thanks so much! My son has a gluten allergy and I am constantly looking online to see what is safe for him to eat. I will definitely bookmark this.
