Gluten Free Chocolate Candy

Print Friendly and PDF
gluten free chocolate candyMy daughter is sick. Again. She's having all sorts of freaky symptoms and spiking fevers over 104 degrees. Thank God for candy! Seriously. I am so stressed right now and craving anything sweet. (Have I ever mentioned that I'm a stress eater? I am. In a major way.) If it wasn't for yummy chocolate and crunchy sweets, I would be running away from home.

But, alas, our local Kroger's healthy foods section has a nice selection of candy appropriate for a gluten free diet. And, many of your old favorites are gluten free too. Hooray!

My disclaimer: These things were gluten free at the time of this post, but you should always check labels just to be safe. You never know when a company might change its recipe. Plus, I could be wrong. It's been known to happen. Occasionally.

    i think you're not looking for the right ingredients. i suffer grain intolerances, and have been trying to be compoletely gluten free for a while, and checked out the labels on every candy in the grocery store (here in Australia) and the only ones that did NOT contain Wheat glucose syrup, were chocolate and bubble gum balls. Really! they've switched from corn syrup to wheat glucose syrup in EVERYTHING, so watch more closely when you read ingredients lists. it was an eye opener for me, but i'm so much better without all that.

  2. Thanks for the input. That will be really helpful for readers in Australia. Here in America, corn syrup is still being used. None of the candies on this list contain wheat glucose syrup in America.
