2020-10-27   ◆   2 minutes read

Looking for allergen-free Halloween candy options? Stop looking – we have you covered! Check out our 10 allergen-free treat suggestions for this holiday.

Well another Halloween is approaching fast and while everybody around you loves this spooky and fun holiday, you are always left out with getting stickers in your jack-o-lantern bucket. Allergen-free candies are not as common as the usual sweets. Thankfully, awareness is growing and with it, an explosion of dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free (and more) choices. We’ve considered a number of options and we’re delighted to see bears, caramels, and even fish included here. We must add that while the following treats labelled as allergen-free, this does not necessarily mean they exclude all allergens. You must remain vigilant and always consult the labels for specific allergies.

Without further delay, in alphabetical order, we give you our 10 Allergen Free Halloween Options:

  1. Enjoy Life Goodies

No scary ingredients here, just gluten-free chocolates. Available as cookies, bars or lentil chips, these minis are bite-size goodies you don’t have to worry about. They’re free from other allergens including wheat, dairy, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, fish, shellfish, sesame, casein, and mustard. 

2. FreeYumm Snacks

FreeYumm bars, cookies and crackers are made with natural ingredients in a dedicated bakery where the top nine allergens (dairy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat/gluten, soy, fish, shellfish, sulphites and sesame) are never allowed. 

3. Free2b Dark Chocolate Sun Cups

The perfect combination of sweet and salty, Free2b fill their signature dark chocolate with a custom blend of creamy sunflower seed butter, creating Sun Cups that are free from peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, gluten, soy, egg, fish, shellfish, corn, sesame, coconut, and mustard.

4. Gin Gins Crystallized Ginger Candy

What’s more, each one of these guilt-free snacks has only 2g of sugar or less.
