Gluten Free Easter Candy List

Gluten Free Easter Candy List Courtesy: MyGlutenFacts.com

Seasonal treats such as Easter chocolate & candy sometimes have a different GF status than similar products made by the same brand.
Since seasonal treats are produced once a year, and sold for a limited time only, food manufacturers sometimes outsource the production of these items to other companies that can produce them more efficiently.
Even though these products may not have any gluten ingredients, since they are produced under different conditions, the GF status that you have come to associate to a particular brand may not be accurate for their seasonal treats.
For example, M&M Speck-tacular Eggs have a statement that warns against the possibility of wheat contamination because they are not made under the same conditions as their milk chocolate, peanut, peanut butter and almond counterparts. There are MANY examples like this one, which is why we publish this list annually.
Because the GF status sometimes depend on the size, we have included as many of these as possible. However, products on our list without the size have been confirmed to have the same GF status for all varieties.
Our 2011 GF Easter Chocolate & Candy List is the best way to stay safe from gluten this Easter.

Happy Easter!
Cadbury Crème Eggs – 2011 update
In 2010, there was a lot of confusion about the GF status of these eggs since they listed “glucose syrup (wheat)” as an ingredient. In 2011, you will no longer find wheat in the ingredients list. However, there are two versions of every Cadbury Crème Egg product from two different suppliers. They have identical packaging except for the allergen statements. One has the following allergen statement: “May contain peanuts, tree nuts and/or wheat” [NOT SAFE] While the other has a different allergen statement: “May contain peanuts and/or tree nuts” [SAFE] Please be sure to verify the allergen statement on your package before eating any Cadbury Crème Egg product to ensure that it is safe for your gluten free diet. For all those taking part in Easter egg hunts, remember to not eat any of the mini Cadbury Crème Eggs without verifying the bag that they came in first (since the bag has the allergen statement, not the eggs.)

Brand Statements
Brand: Cadbury, Hershey’s, Reese’s
The Hershey Company strives to provide its consumers with accurate, reliable ingredient statements upon which consumers
can make their purchase decision. The Hershey Company ensures that the ingredient statements are always accurate, and
that any allergen statements placed on the label is understandable.
We have found that allergen lists quickly become outdated as our product lines change over time. Rather than have you make
purchase decisions based on outdated information, we encourage you to check the ingredient label on the package. This label
provides accurate, current information about all the ingredients in the package.
We take food allergies very seriously at Hershey and have strict procedures in place to prevent crossover of allergens
(including gluten) into other products that do not contain the allergen. In instances where we have a concern about possible
crossover by an allergen we take the added precaution of including an allergy information statement on the label.
Brand: Chocolate Emporium
Chocolate Emporium specializes in dairy-free confections. Many of our candies are gluten-free as well. Our gluten-containing
items are produced on dedicated equipment, virtually eliminating any chance of cross-contamination of gluten into any of our
other products.
Brand: Gimbal’s
At Gimbal’s Fine Candies we take food allergies very seriously. The eight most common food allergens are peanuts, tree nuts,
milk, eggs, gluten, soy, fish, and shell fish. Gimbal’s Fine Candies facilities are free of these eight most common food
allergens.
Brand: Jelly Belly
We do not use any wheat, rye, barley, or oats in the basic recipe for Jelly Belly jelly beans. The modified food starch used in
the manufacture of our jelly bean candies is cornstarch. We do consider gluten (wheat, rye, barley, etc) an allergen and
require that our suppliers list it if it is present in their products. The Malt Ball and Licorice Pastel centers are where the “gluten”
is the products. All surfaces that come into contact with the centers after the candies have moved to the next production stage
are washed and sanitized.
Brand: Hot Tamales, Mike and Ike, Peeps, Teenee Beanee
The modified food starch that we use in our candies in corn starch. We are in the process of updating our package labels to
reflect products that are gluten free. Our gluten free brands are: MIKE AND IKE® Brand Candies, HOT TAMALES® Brand

BORN® Jelly Bean. This information pertains to all Just Born candies that we make and package at our two manufacturing
locations (Bethlehem, PA and Philadelphia, PA) and are in their original packaging. Please be aware that we do sell some of
our products in bulk to other manufacturers who may be repackaging them in another facility. We encourage consumers to
read the labels carefully for any gluten information on products that might be packaged elsewhere.
Brand: Dove, M&M’s, Starburst,
We always declare the presence of any top allergens whenever they are part of the recipe, regardless of the source (e.g.,
flavors, spices, colors, other minor ingredients). It is our company policy that if the protein from any one of the top eight
allergens were to be unintentionally transferred from one product/ingredient to another, then we would clearly indicate this in a
statement just below the ingredient declaration (“Allergy Information: May Contain “). As a result, we use the “May Contain ”
statement when: We have used all reasonable means to eliminate the allergen cross contact; and we have documented
proof that, despite our best cleaning efforts, allergen cross contact exists.
Brand: Necco
We make the following products which do not contain gluten from wheat, rye, oats or barley: Necco Wafers, Mary Janes, Mary
Jane Peanut Butter Kisses, Sweethearts Conversation Hearts (Valentines only), Canada Mint & Wintergreen Lozenges,

Brand: Spree

Thank you for taking the time to do this.

Thankyou so mucH !!!!!!!!

by Pamela, Posted April 25, 2011 at 12:32 am

Palmer may clean their product line, but my Grandson developed a rash and hives from eating just the head of the Peter Candytail. He is gluten intolerant. Please try better.

by Martha, Posted April 26, 2011 at 1:00 am

Thanks for posting this very helpful list!

Question for you — when you say:
Hershey’s Candy Coated Milk Chocolate Eggs March 2011 CL, and
Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Eggs March 2011 CL

Do either of those refer to the chocolate "Eggies" that Hershey makes? I’m having a really hard time getting a solid answer from Hershey about this product.

Thanks! :)
