Halloween is literally right around me the corner. You know that means: CANDY!
If you missed it, I put together this Guide to Dietary-Restriction Friendly Candy. These lists include gluten-, dairy-, and/or soy-free options. While perusing the Halloween candy section at Target, we discovered a various bags of candy that meet all of the above requirements. I was also shopping on Vitacost when I decided to check their coupons. They had a sale on Halloween candy, so who could pass that up?Allergen-Free Halloween Candy Review Click To Tweet
Being the dutiful blogger that I am, I have done some research for you. You’re welcome. ? Sadly, Vitacost removed some the candy that Nikki selected (probably because it became unavailable since we waited overnight to place the order). We still got some good selections to test for you. All of the candy is gluten-, soy-, & dairy-free.
*Update 9/27/18: New candy has been reviewed! Check out the new review of No Whey Chocolate options.*
Without further ado, here are the reviews…
–Black Forest Organic Caramel Hard Candies: These square candies taste just like other caramels (not *just* like Werther’s, but a good alternative). GFS approves.
–SmashMallow: They bill themselves as “America’s snackable marshmallow, made from only the best all-natural ingredients.” They have several flavors to choose from; Nikki selected Strawberries & Creme. Its not soft like a typical marshmallow. It’s firm, but chewy. Sometimes the flavors do not match what they’re supposed to be. In this case, it tastes exactly like it says. GFS approved (this is Nikki’s favorite & she doesn’t want to share).
We like SmashMallow so much, that we created an easy Halloween recipe with them!
–Pea Not Cups: Can’t eat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? This may be another option for you. This milk-less/peanut-less version is made with sunflower butter. It’s also free from the 8 common allergens. If you’ve had sunflower butter before, the taste will not be a shock to your taste buds. If you’ve never had it, it’ll be a bit of a surprise. This may not be for everyone, but GFS approves.
–No Whey Chocolate Fear Not- Spook Free Chocolatey Treats
No Whey Chocolate has a bag of individually wrapped Spook Free Chocolatey Treats that includes the aforementioned Pea “Not” Cups, No Whey Candy Bars, Milkless Chocolate Bars, and Milkless White Polar Bar. We like all four candies, but Nikki’s favorite is the Milkess White Polar Bar and the No Whey Candy Bars because they’re similar to her favorites.
-No Whey Chocolate Skull Pop
This festive lollipops are pretty big. It’s white chocolate and free of the top 8 allergens. GFS approved.
–Black Forest Organic Lollipops: There are four flavors: Cherry Apple, Strawberry Lemon, Orange Mango, & Melon Berry. I had the Orange Mango & it’s very good. Nikki had the Melon Berry. They have a lot of flavor & are GFS approved.
–Skittles: The Halloween version is named Cauldron Skittles. It has a mix of original flavors as well as tropical flavors, however they’ve been given holiday names: Petrified Pear, Gripping Grape, Twisted Tangerine, Boogey Berry, and Lurking Lemon. Skittles are a GFS favorite and we approve of these.
