Posted By Allergic Living On 2010/10/02 @ 12:04 pm In Food Allergy | 3 Comments

Great Goblins! Head down to the nearest Halloween candy aisle or online candy retailer and you’ll see any increasing number of allergy-friendly or gluten-free treats. We’ve added some new favorites to our growing list this year. Trick or treat, everyone! – Allergic Living Staff

New Raves

[1]Organic Lollipops from YummyEarth are free of gluten, dairy, soy, peanuts and tree nuts; the unique flavors like Hot Chili and Soup Apple appeal to goblins of all ages. Visit YummyEarth [2] (U.S.) or Yummy Earth [3](Canada).

Spooky Spiders from Surf Sweets [4] are 90% organic with no artificial colors or sweeteners and will have the monsters howling. No top allergens. Check out their website [4] for great allergy friendly Halloween recipe ideas. Mummy Gummys, anyone?

The Spider Web from Ange Gardien [6]. Get back at scary Mrs. Spider by taking a nice big bite of chocolatey goodness. No nuts, peanuts, dairy or egg.

Happy Halloween Lollies (right) from Amanda’s Own Confections [7] are so good it’s scary! The chocolate lollipops are dairy-, tree nut-, peanut-, egg- and gluten-free.

Vermont Nut Free [8] has beautiful peanut- and nut-free chocolates to ease sweet cravings this Halloween. Three-inch by three-inch Crispy Jack O’Lanterns would be a perfect way to show that the Great Pumpkin has visited. Individual Witch (and Ghost and Scarecrow) Shapes are a considerable 1.2 oz. and always popular.

Not everyone has a sweet tooth. Just say “No” to the candy hangover and give out fun, no-eat treats!

Hasbro’s individual Play-Doh Pots in Halloween colors (photo, right) are sure to amuse. Do contain wheat. Find in U.S.: Walmart, Target, Toys “R” Us, Amazon.com [9].

Non-food ideas at Costco: Disney-themed Playing Cards or 50 Puzzle Erasers. Note: contains very small parts; not suitable for young children. Package the erasers in Halloween themed bags.

See our new 2012 list [10] for more of our favorite treats.

Remember to check the label, as a brand’s ingredients can change. Small portion treats may have different ingredients than the regular versions.
