    How do you things Samantha and what would Halloween be without candy. It’s really great to know that there are gluten free treats out there for all the people who have allergies and that they actually taste nice too

      It’s so great to see companies that make options to include everyone. It’s not something you really even think about it unless you know someone or it’s brought to your attention.

    You’ve just reminded to put my treats in something interesting. I knew Halloween was around the corner but hadn’t prepared. I’m always caught off-guard although I love giving those kids something to take home.

    I didn’t know skittles were gluten free, we don’t normally hand out candy at halloween, instead we take our children, 2 for each parent. But it is great to see tha more companies are seeing the need to cater to other dietary needs.

      I was surprised that Skittles were gluten-free (and soy-free) as well. We’re going to pass out non-food items as well for those that either don’t want candy or prefer for their children not to have sugar.

    I don’t really eat candy but I am glad there are so many alternatives for the little ones. I think the ‘pea-not cups’ are hilarious and a very smart idea for those with peanut allergies and have to miss out on chocolately treats!

    I know skittles are not kosher, but do you happen to know if any of these other candies are? We don’t observe Halloween, but I definitely observe November 1st! “National discount chocolate day” lol Thanks in advance!

      We check the ingredients on the back to see if they contain gluten, dairy, and soy. I also put together a guide to Halloween candy a few weeks ago that includes lists that other bloggers/websites put together about candy that is safe for those with specific allergies. LOL November 1st should be a holiday too!

    Caramel Candies are my FAVORITE! Something about them always reminds me of Fall as a child in Florida eating them with my mom! Have you ever tried UnReal candies? Those are one of our faves, I think some of them are Gluten Free, but I know their Peanut Butter cups are Vegan!
