Having food allergies and auto-immune diseases that affect the digestive tract takes work. “Planning ahead” might as well be your middle name. And, being the parent of a child with these dietary needs can be frustrating, and downright scary. As a Celiac myself, I know how hyper-vigilant you must be, in order to eat something delicious that doesn’t destroy your GI tract.

Unfortunately, holidays are especially hard for Celiacs. Many companies change manufacturing standards to accommodate for the high-volume of orders. Halloween, especially, can spell “disaster” for many people with gluten issues.

Regardless of whether you’re Celiac or NCGS, you want to ensure you’re intaking safe candy. I’ve put together a list of the best gluten-free candy for Halloween–updated specifically for 2017. Remember to always read labels, just to be sure.


1. HERSHEY’S Chocolate 1.55 Oz Bar

Amazon

As we all know, Hershey’s used to be super hush hush about their ingredients. Luckily, they’ve changed their tight-lipped ways, and have released information regarding which products contain gluten. But, if you specifically opt for a Hershey’s milk chocolate bar, only go for the 1.55 ounce bar.

While there are other Hershey’s-specific products that are considered gluten-free, the names are confusing, and it’s very easy to accidentally gluten yourself.

Price: $32.65 for 36 1.55 oz Bars

2. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (36 ct.)

As long as you don’t have nut issues, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are a go for gluten-free candy. Any of their products are a green light–except the unwrapped minis and seasonal shape items. So, if you’re looking at the Halloween-specific pumpkins, stay away.

Price: $41.97 for 36 Packages

3. M&Ms Fun Size Milk Chocolate

Fast and Swift

Mars Chocolate states that their labels will clearly spell out if something is gluten-free. Because manufacturing lines change throughout the year, each batch is different. They will always call out gluten-containing ingredients by name (wheat, barley, rye), and denote any potential cross-contamination risks. As long as the bag of regular M&Ms you’re looking at doesn’t have any information indicating otherwise, you should be good to go.

Given the texture, it would be easy to assume that Butterfingers aren’t gluten-free. They actually are–but only in fun size, single, and share packs. Butterfinger Cups, Butterfinger Bites, Butterfinger Minis, and holiday-specific Butterfinger items are NOT gluten-free candy.

Price: $14.99 for 11.5 Oz.
