With Halloween approaching, families may be wondering what gluten-free treats they can serve at parties and to trick-or-treaters. Luckily, our friends at Dentably Magazine put together an awesome gluten-free candy guide which we are excited to share with you. So, without further ado, here is a guest post from Dentably Magazine’s own Jamie Brown…
Did you know candy corn has been around for 100 years? It was invented in the 1880’s by Goelitz Candy Company and is still produced today by the same company, now known as Jelly Belly Candy Company. Twizzlers, as well, are one of the oldest confectioneries in the US, first produced in 1845…although only in black licorice flavor!
Children and adults alike are excited to get Halloween candy to eat, but I love baking with it! Just like Sherri did with her recipe for Caramel Frosted Dark Milky Way Cupcakes and her Pumpkin Chip Cake Mix Cupcakes, I love trying new recipes using candy I happen to “borrow” from my daughter’s Halloween basket.
I like to make treats for her daycare class, so it’s vital to know which type of candy is safe for everyone in her class, even those with a gluten allergy, intolerance or sensitivity. It is estimated that 1 in 133 Americans suffers from Celiac disease. That’s around 1% of the population!
Halloween should be safe and fun for all adults and children, so that is why we at Dentably Magazine have created this infographic. We wanted to make it easy to see which candy is safe this Halloween for those of you who are gluten-free! We even have a printable option here so you can print it out and take it to the store with you while you shop. Happy Halloween!
