A Celiac Kid’s Halloween

Trick or Treating is a standard and fun part of Halloween for children. They get to dress up as their favorite characters and go door to door collecting candy.

But when you’re a kid with Celiac Disease, Halloween is a whole different story. Yes, you still get to get dressed up and go trick or treating, but you may not be able to eat all the candy you receive. And that sucks sometimes.

But there are many candies Celiac kids can eat. Here are some common gluten free candies:

  • Tootsie Rolls
  • Tootsie Pops
  • Snickers
  • Three Musketeers
  • Dots
  • Blow Pops
  • Smarties
  • Hershey’s Bar
  • Hershey Kisses
  • Almond Joy
  • Heath Bar
  • Baby Ruth
  • Butter Fingers
  • Raisinets
  • M&Ms

Here is what to avoid (not gluten free):

  • Nerds
  • Chewy Sprees
  • Twix
  • 100 Grand Bars
  • M&M Pretzel Flavor
  • Mars Bar
  • Milky Way
  • Sweetart
  • Cookies & Cream Hershey Bar
  • Mr. Goodbar
  • Hershey Miniatures

Remember to always, always, always read ingredient labels! I didn’t even know until right now that Milky Ways are not gluten free!

Happy Halloween!
