Gluten Free Candy List (Updated April 2017)


Gluten free candy is very hard to figure out. Reading labels for gluten is a hassle which is why I created this gluten-free candy list to make it easier! Every Halloween, Valentine's Day, and Easter, I update this gluten-free candy list to make sure you are all safe around the holidays. There's so many candies that can contain gluten that you would have never thought of! This list will at least let you know what you can have while being gluten-free. If you would like any brands added to this list, please comment and I will look it up for you! I hope this helps!

  4. Hi Taylor! Thank you for taking the time to look up all of this information...I'm sure we all appreciate your diligence, truly. I do have a question for you though;Hershey's Nuggets are listed as both gluten free and also as containing gluten. Could you clarify which one that they are? Thank you so very much! I'm new at this at the age of 50, and am a true chocolate lover, so your help is greatly appreciated! I'm waiting for the Easter Bunny, and am looking forward to your reply...Thank you! Stephanie

  5. HI Stephanie, thanks for pointing that out! I just checked Hershey's Gluten Free Info Page and all Hershey's Nuggets are gluten-free. Sorry for putting them on both lists. I appreciate you pointing it out and will change it right now.

  6. York Peppermint Patties are NOT gluten free. They now contain an ingredient (cant remember the letters-R???-
    that is cheaper than whatever was the previous ingredient.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Are you sure? I just looked it up again and Hershey's confirms that they are gluten-free.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Thank you so very much for all your research and sharing this important information. Three weeks gluten free. So glad I found this resource and with Halloween around the corner I needed a plan!

  11. when you say gluten free did you check if they were "made on the same equipment that processes wheat?" I have celiac disease and I'm very sensitive. I've been having a hard time finding this info.

  15. Thanks Kid!

    I appreciate your hard work and admire your ability to listen to criticism, apologize and correct your mistakes, and stand up for yourself when the evidence proves otherwise. In other words, I get to have one of the butterfingers I was saving for the little kiddies on Halloween; all because, I trust you and this website. That is a big deal for someone who is as old as you are: transposed. Yes, I am 61 years old!
    Oh, and by the way, this website and its integrity will look very sweet on your college applications someday.

  16. What is the ingredient in a Symphony Bar that makes it not Gluten Free? I am lost :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. For whatever reason Hershey's has said that it is not gluten-free and does not feature it on their gluten-free products page. The ingredients look fine but my guess is that there are problems with cross contamination so they say it's not gluten-free unfortunately.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks for the speedy reply, that is just sad. I wanted to make sure there was not a specific ingredient that I was not aware of. Great job on the list :)

  24. Okay so are all these safe for people with celiacs disease as well??

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't believe so since some are made in a facility with other gluten ingredients.

    ReplyDelete
  26. You are just as sweet as this list! I appreciate you doing this, you are a great guy!

    ReplyDelete
  27. So everything on here is gluten free?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Only the candies under the label, "The following below is gluten-free."

    ReplyDelete
  29. Just a thought but you might note next to each item at the bottom *contains gluten since it would be easy to do as I did and scroll through the list thinking all items are gluten free and miss that last topic heading that says the all important word NOT.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Does anyone know what kind of chewing gums are gluten free

  31. Thank you so much for this list! I love M & M's & have been avoiding them because I thought they contained gluten. Off to the store!!

  35. Hit there, you might want to take Smarties off the list, as I have a box right in front of me, and it has Wheat flour right in the ingredients. My son has also been reacting after eating them, so pretty sure the box is right. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I believe the Smarties candy he is referring to are the US candy brand, not the Canadian chocolate brand by Nestle. The chocolate brand used to be my son's favourite and we had to switch to M&Ms because of the wheat. :)

  37. Your list makes it a whole lot easier for me to buy and send parcels to my Grandkids as one of them is Celiac, thankyou!

  38. Thanks for a great list! One comment - I don't see Milk Duds on the list. Hershey's website has them listed as gluten free.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Great list!! (The whole site is great!) Sadly, Smarties in Canada has wheat flour listed as one of the first ingredients. But I'm thrilled to know my beloved Lemonheads are gluten free. Keep up the good work. You're doing a better job than the medical info sites. :)

  40. are mayfair candies gluten freer in particular lemon sours

  41. Here is another one for you. Hot Tamales.http://theglutenfreebar.com/gluten-free-blog/gluten-free-food-list/candy/are-hot-tamales-gluten-free/ - hope this helps you great work! When I had to go gluten free almost 3 years ago, there wasn't nearly the resources or products available and labeling. I can't imagine the problems people had years ago. Thanks again for all your work!

  46. Thank you for this. I just found your blog a week ago. You are doing a great job. I found that Canyon Bake House bread at Target and have to say it is soooo good!!! I haven't had bread in a year. Thanks for trying them out so that I didn't have to. Also, thank you for the GF Oatmeal blog. I had just tried some and had a reaction, so your post was timely. It is nice to know it isn't just me!! Thanks again!!

  47. Is this list for Canada or the US?

    ReplyDelete
  48. You're welcome Princess Pindy! And Wanda, this list is for the U.S. but can be applied to Canada. However, Smarties in the U.S. are a completely different candy compared to Smarties in Canada. Just something to note!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, the candy made in Canada is often different from that in the US. I don't know if it is because of ingredients or cross contamination. For an example, check the Hershey site.Completely different lists for the US vs Canada.
      Also note that the same candy bar in different sizes, one can be gf and the other not.

  49. Soy lecithin most often contains gluten..my body has confirmed that most of these candies contain gluten and my daughters who also have Celiac Disease, would concur. The hives, the itching, the bowel pain, etc Yep! Sorry. No candy for us! Fruit is the substitute at our house 😊

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Soy lecithin does not contain any gluten. It actually usually doesn't even affect those with soy allergies. But there is a very small percentage of those with soy allergies who do end up having a reaction. Perhaps you and your daughter have soy allergies and are affected.

  80. Hi-
    Not all M&Ms are gluten free beides the pretzel. I know a few others are not (like the peppermint ones). Also, milky way contains barley as well. Just so people are not mislead. Always read the labels even if you know its gluten free- sometimes products change.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I think I just had a reaction to peanut M&M's?? I'm allergic, not intolerant to wheat/gluten. Maybe a cross contamination?

    ReplyDelete
  82. Hey thanks, Taylor. Since I have both Diabetes and the Celiac Disease, I have a difficult time with food.

    ReplyDelete
  83. How about peppermint candy, the soft melt in your mouth kind? Appreciate the help!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Hi Taylor- this is a great list. I was wondering - you have mentioned Smarties as being GF but when I checked the ingredients malt is listed. Is that maybe because I live in a really small country and our smarties are imported from either middle east or asian countries and so might have different manufacturing processes/ingredients? My 18month old has just been diagnosed and it is proving a bit difficult to find anything for him other than rice cakes and dehydrated apple! Thanks so much for your help

    ReplyDelete
  85. On your list, you have that the York Peppermint patties are gluten free, but that the York Peppermint Mini 's are NOT. Are you sure about that? I can't find anything in the ingredients list of the York unwrapped peppermint mini 's that would have gluten in it. Plus there are no allergen statements at the end of the ingredients list, which would indicate that there is gluten in them either. I've been told by representatives of various companies when I call them to inquire about whether or not a product has gluten in it that if I don't find anything in the ingredients list about gluten, and there isn't any allergen statements at the end of the ingredients that says "May contain" or "contains" wheat, rye, or barley etc..., then it doesn't have any ingredient that contains gluten, but may not be "certified" gluten free because it is made in a facility that makes other products with gluten, and therefore poses the risk of slight cross-contamination. All that being said, is that the only reason why the York Peppermint Unwrapped Mini 's aren't deemed gluten free (possible cross-contamination)? Or, am I missing something in the ingredients list? Thanks in advance for your help!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Are there any candies that are both gluten and dairy free?

    ReplyDelete
  87. I am also interested in knowing what candies are both gluten free AND dairy free. Looking forward to your response. Nana Susan

    ReplyDelete
  88. Sorry for the late response! I can create a list for both gluten AND dairy free since I have to avoid both as well. Any NON-chocolate brands on this list are usually dairy free. So starbursts, skittles, gummy related candies, etc. are almost always safe. However, make sure to check labels for dairy ingredients.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Smarties (U.S. ONLY) are gluten-free. Also, the York Peppermint Minis are NOT gluten-free due to cross contamination, I believe. No gluten containing ingredients. It's just over 20 ppm of gluten due to cross contamination.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Thank you so much for the information on all of these. It makes it so much easier to know for sure what doesn't have the gluten in it.

  91. Thank you for all this work! We are retired. Our youngest son came to live with us last year; and it has only been in the last few months that we have worked out he is gluten intolerant.

    I am so glad to have found your blog. I look forward to reading through it. Thank you.

  93. Butterfingers ARE NOT GLUTEN FREE!!!!!!!!!!! This list needs to be updated.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Butterfingers are, in fact, gluten-free. The only known allergens are listed as so from the nestle site, "CONTAINS PEANUT, MILK AND SOY INGREDIENTS." It does not contain gluten.

  95. Only the giant bar butterfingers aren't gluten free

  96. Do you know if peanut butter M&Ms are GF? I have conflicting information in my research.. Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Great list. I've noticed some candies now carry a gf circle/notice on the wrapper. I don't remember which specific ones at the moment, but it was on quite a few I peeked over at the drugstore recently. So, it was probably someone that dominates their candy aisle - Hershey's, Mars, Nestle.

    Note about M&Ms - always check the labels. Some seasonals were most definitely not gf this past year. Every 'special' flavour I picked up over the holidays had a warning on the back, but this may really depend on where you are, as well as how sensitive you are. Don't get me wrong, I like that Mars is doing much like Nestle and Hershey with the serious labeling, but it was still kind of a bummer. I mean, I didn't expect to chow down on a family bag of Red Velvet or anything, but it would have been nice to try the White Chocolate, or Pumpkin or something. Maybe next year. :D

  100. Milky Way Midnight dark is not Gluten free. I had a reaction today because it contains soy and soy is planted in the same field as wheat is for more information visit

  113. I have been gluten/wheat free 7 years now due to serious health issues. It has taken me years to heal and I have quite a bit of exp. Just because something is labeled gluten free doesn't mean it is healthy. Sugar is one of the worst and causes a lot of illness and health issues so I eat it in moderation. Peanuts are bad too, usually contain mold. http:\\www.glutenfreelady.com

  114. F.Y.I.-Especially w/Celiac Disease, there's a higher risk of reacting to other ingredients.Soy,corn,dairy,peanuts are some of the top offenders.If I go overboard on sugar I will definitely be having stomach issues.There can be numerous other reasons for reacting to a Gluten free product.

  121. Thanks for the list. My mom has celiac so our whole family has been GF for a few years now. We've gotten used to it for the most part, but sometimes trying to determine what is safe and what isn't gets difficult. Having lists to refer to makes it easier.

    ReplyDelete
  122. If an item contains "natural flavors" or articifical colors it may contain gluten. Sometimes wheat and dairy are used as a base for natural flavors.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I thought it was just the Red No. 40 that caused me problems. Apparently, it is the gluten in it. It makes me hyper. Studies have shown it acts as a stimulant. Blue No. 1 does also.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Are Reese's FAST BREAK Candy Bars free from cross contamination? I thought they were unsafe for Celiacs. Safe ingredients does not mean safe from gluten. I had lumped them with seasonal shaped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups which I understand may be manufactured on shared lines where gluten products are produced, depending on demand.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Not all of the Hershey Kisses are GF...like the cookies and creme flavor. I also thought I read the caramel ones weren't GF anymore? I learned the hard way about the seasonal shaped pb cups. So disappointing since they are my favorite. Thanks for the list, it is very helpful with having 4 of us diagnosed with celiac!

    ReplyDelete
  126. Please check on the Hershey's Kisses. About.com just ran an article about which ones contain gluten, among them the special dark kisses. I got sick on them last year. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I am very sensitive to gluten and have eaten several bags of York mini's (the unwrapped kind) with no issues! Now I'm kind of freaked out that I'll forget and eat them again. Has something changed recently? I read the ingredients last time I bought them (a few months ago) and they were all fine.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Thank you for all your work! This is so helpful. Do you by chance know about other Maynards candies (sour patch, wine gums, etc)? Nothing in ingredients but cross contam?

    ReplyDelete
  129. One I don't see on your list are dum-dums -- the company says they are GF, and we usually get a fair few on Halloween. :)

    Thanks so much for putting this together!

    ReplyDelete
  130. York Minis do not contain any gluten but I believe they don't list it as gluten-free since it is made in a shared facility with wheat. That can still mean it's ok to eat but you may be taking a risk due to potential cross contamination. Sour patch kids now says there is a chance of cross contamination as well. The kisses have also been updated.

    Dum Dums are also gluten-free. I will add them to this list :)

    ReplyDelete
  131. Any information on Russell Stover or Ghiradelli chocolate Sorry I know I spelled the last one wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I agree that most questions can be answered if a little effort is used to look it up yourself but..... My 4 year old daughter was diagnosed with celiac at 18 months of age. Her diagnosis almost came too late! Luck for us she is doing well now! She loves anything dealing with medics and doctor/nurse and veterinarians and loves giving check ups. It was hard to tell the degree of bothersome symptoms when your daughter couldn't tell you more than tummy or groan and now I have to ask several questions just to see if she is having a reaction or if she's playing or trying to get attention away from her little brother. It is very frustrating when you have contradicting information from different sites. As a mom I greatly appreciate everyone's input and it's a relief to know that we are not alone.

  133. CHECK the m&m's! There is Cake Batter, Mint, Crunch, Candy Corn, and Coconut flavors to name a few. ALL FLAVORED m&m's contain wheat and barley. Also, different Mar's m&m's factories are not gluten free safe, high potential for cross contamination.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Milky ways are not Gluten free, they have barley in them.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Hi! Thanks for the list, as it was just Halloween yesterday as you know, and I was just told that I am allergic to gluten. Now I know what candies I can eat.Thanks again

  136. Mint m&m's (the green ones) aren't GF.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Milky Way Midnight and Caramel Bars are gluten-free but NOT the original. Ghirardelli truffles are NOT gluten-free but most of their bars are. Also, thank you for making me aware that Mars has those new flavors of M&M's. I will update the list. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  138. As I thought Snickers were gluten free, I had a fun-sized one from my son's Halloween stash on Wednesday night. I slept horribly and woke up feeling awful with all the tell-tale signs of a gluten contamination. Not really linking it to the candy yet, I had another fun-sized Snickers on Thursday night. Slept horrible again and my stomach has been a complete wreck all day, massive bloating and then immodium that doesn't help with the other issues. I've seen candies from other brands are gluten free in some sizes but contain wheat in larger or smaller sizes (butterfinger is an example). Perhaps that is the case here with Snickers? Either way, I'll never eat another Snickers, regardless of size. Sadness...

  144. Taylor, love the blog. Swedish fish are correctly listed lower down in the list, but near the top you have them as Sweetish Fish, and a couple of other posters have needled you about it.

I thought it was from the one tiny piece of King cake I ate on Tuesday but I just ate the last handful of PB M&M's and literally within 30 mins I look like I'm 6 months preggers BC I'm so bloated! UGH!!!

    1. Taylor is right, it could be something else. Also, I have read that gluten can actually stay in your system than we may realize. That you may have a reaction to a product and then later when you eat another meal/snack that is absolutely gluten-free you feel your reaction from the previous (gluten-containing) meal. This can be annoying and difficult because it can be hard to distinguish what had initially caused the reaction and what is merely a continued reaction.

  151. Twizzlers and red vines are NOT gluten-free. I haven't heard anything about peanut butter M&M's causing a reaction. It could possibly be another ingredient you are reacting to but I will look into it more.

  155. Have you found any definitive on jolly ranchers? My partner with celiac had one today and didn't have a reaction, and they are super sensitive to gluten. Like can barely touch the stuff. No ingredients with gluten of course but not listed with the GF products on Hershey's website, maybe due to possible cross contamination in the manufacturing?

  160. to those who are worried about butterfingers i was on a website today that says they are gluten free, but it may be because some products do contain wheat but here in the states if it is less than 20ppm than they can say gluten free so be sure to always read ingredients as folks like me who have CD you have to be very careful. and to Taylor thanks this is a lot of work, good job.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Seasonal themed items from M&Ms would be gluten-free such as the Easter colored ones. Baking pieces are gluten-free as well. As for Jolly Ranchers, they are not listed as GF on the Hershey's website due to their strict policy on GF labeling if there is a chance of cross contamination. I haven't heard anybody having problems since it does not directly contain a gluten ingredient. It's just one of those products that is left up to the consumer to try for themselves.
