Gluten Free Halloween Treats

Hello all! Can you believe Halloween is this Friday? I still can’t believe it! George Washington was supposed to go as a shark, but he was in between sizes on his costume. He will be a UGA football player again this year. Let’s hope he doesn’t mind.

Here’s a flashback to me and LC on the Halloween night of 2007.

I always get tons of questions about what candy is gluten free. Here is the most updated list of the most popular candies. One of the candies I miss the most is Twizzlers. The are full of wheat! Watch out for Milky Ways and Zero bars… that malt (barley) will get you every time.

Here is another more detailed list of candy and if they practice “safe manufacturing”. What’s one more list? Feel free to leave any comments with questions and I will help the best that I can!
