2012 Gluten Free Halloween Candy List

The 2012 Halloween Gluten Free Candy List is finally here!

As always, it is important to check the bags/packaging and make sure ingredients have not changed since I did my research.  You can go online to the specific manufacturers to look up their gluten free lists or call the 800 number on the candy package and speak to a company representative to find out about the products.  **Please note that some small Halloween size versions contain gluten when their large “normal” size versions do not.  READ ALL LABELS before purchasing.

Also, please note that some candy is has the same name in different countries.  This list was based on US candy  manufacturers.  Some savvy readers have noted that Smarties are different in the US and Canada.  In the US, smarties are GF and in Canada (the chocolate Smarties) are not GF.  I have noted this below.

This list is already long and not totally comprehensive. I am sure there are plenty more sugary treats that could be added to the list.  If you know of additional items or you see a mistake, please let me know in the comment section below so I can update the list as needed.  Also, please add the smaller independent companies that you know about so we can send them some business too!

If you are a blogger, please feel free to share a link to this list and just give appropriate credit (from Jen Cafferty at

Happy Candy Eating!  You might want to make an appointment at the dentist now when you see how much candy is available to you.

The last note:  Some of this candy is made in a dedicated gluten free facility and some is not.  Please read the packaging to determine which candy is the most appropriate for your family.  Example:  Brach’s Candy Corns – these are not made with gluten-containing ingredients, however, they are made in a facility that processes wheat.  You will need to decide what level of precautions your family takes when it comes to gluten.  Some of you will eat candy as long as it isn’t made with wheat, barley or rye.  Others need a dedicated facility.

    Hi – just a comment on Smarties. The pastel-colored candies sold in the US as Smarties are almost always manufactured in Canada. The chocolate Smarties commonly eaten in Canada (they are like M&Ms, but yummier) can be manufactured either in the UK or Canada (when purchased in Canada).

    A question on manufacturing standards in Mexico. I am noticing, this year, a large number of candies are being made in Mexico. Any insight into whether their manufacturing/ disclosure standards are close to those in the US? Hershey, in particular, seems to be using the facilities there.

      That is a great question and I don’t know the answer. I’ll check into it and reply back through this post. Jen

  4. Sheri says:

    Hey is Hershey dark chocolate have gluten in it as well as m & m dark chocolate ?

  5. Stephen says:

    I have read that snickers bars are made on the same lines as Milky Way bars, and therefore cross contamination is an issue. They make me sick so I don’t eat them!
