Trick or Treat? Halloween candy can be a trick instead of a treat if it has hidden wheat in it. How can we know if Halloween candy is safe for us and our children if we have wheat allergies? Hold on Halloween Candy Lovers ~ Don't panic! I have GOOD NEWS for you.
The exciting news is that many manufacturers are clearly labeling the packages of candy if it is wheat or gluten-free. This is such a time-saver when we race into the store to pick up our essential Halloween CHOCOLATES! (C'mon... is any candy, other than chocolate, worthy of passing out at Halloween?)
To help us pick out safe Halloween Candy, Jefferson Adams, a freelance writer for www.Celiac.com, put together a 2011 "Safe Halloween Candy List" and an "Unsafe Candy List." Be sure to check this out; it's invaluable. (Jefferson, thank you!)
Have a wonderful and safe Halloween... just remember to
pass out CHOCOLATE BARS if I come to your house!
Smiles & Chocolate Hugs to YOU ~ Lynn
