Re-Post All About Gluten Free Candy

 With Halloween right around the corner, I'm re-posting this from last year.  I hope you find it helpful, I know I did!




 I know I'm late on the gluten-free candy list, what with it being November, and not Halloween anymore, but since my husband and I have been raiding our son's candy supply, I thought I'd share this information I just found.  I was surprised at some of these popular candies that are not gluten-free! (I found this list on about.com).  I know I've accidently ingested gluten because of some of these.  Now we know!


Nestlé


Nestle USA
Nestle USA considers "gluten-free" to mean "no gluten ingredients are in the product, whether directly added, or potentially present due to cross-contact. If a product label has an allergen advisory statement such as 'made on equipment' or 'facility that also processes wheat etc.,' we do not consider that product to be gluten-free. It is important to always read product labels/packaging for the most accurate information." Nestle will label potential gluten cross contamination, a customer service representative says.

    According to Nestle, the following candies are gluten-free:
  • Baby Ruth
  • Bit-O-Honey
  • Butterfinger Bar (original flavor only, NOT Crisp, Giant Bar, Snakerz, Medallions, Jingles, Hearts or Pumpkins)
  • Milk Chocolate
  • Goobers
  • Nips (including both regular and sugar-free)
  • Oh Henry!
  • Raisinets (including Cranberry and Dark Chocolate flavors)
  • Sno-Caps
  • Wonka Pixy Stix
  • Laffy Taffy (including Laffy Taffy Rope)
  • Wonka Lik-M-Aid Fun Dip
    The following Nestle candy products are NOT gluten-free:
  • Butterfinger Crisp Bar
  • Butterfinger Giant Bar
  • Butterfinger Snackerz
  • Butterfinger Medallions
  • Butterfinger Jingles
  • Butterfinger Hearts
  • Butterfinger Pumpkins
  • Wonka Nerds
  • Sweetarts
  • Wonka Bar (all flavors)
  • Chewy Spree
  • Wonka Gummies
  • Wonka Kazoozles
  • Everlasting Gobstopper
  • 100 Grand Bar
In some of these products, the ingredients themselves are gluten-free, but the candies are processed in a facility that also processes gluten.

Mars Chocolate

Mars Chocolate makes M&M's, Dove, Snickers and other products. The company urges gluten-free consumers to check labels, even if a product normally is gluten-free; in busy times of year (such as Halloween), Mars uses alternative facilities to make its candy, and some of those may introduce cross-contamination risks. The company says it will label any gluten ingredients or cross-contamination.
Warning: At least some packages of two relatively new varieties of M&Ms — coconut and mint flavors — include the warning "May contain wheat" on their labels as of October 2012. Other varieties — including milk chocolate, dark chocolate, peanut and almond — don't contain that warning. In addition, I saw Mars several seasonal products, including M&Ms candy corn, that featured the "May contain wheat" warning. Always read the label before purchasing.
    According to Mars Chocolate, the following candies are gluten-free:
  • M&M's (all EXCEPT for pretzel-flavored M&M's)
  • 3 Musketeers Bars (all flavors)
  • Milky Way Midnight Bar
  • Milky Way Caramel Bar
  • Dove Chocolate products (all flavors EXCEPT for milk chocolate cinnamon graham/cookies and cream)
  • Snickers Bars (all flavors)
  • Munch Nut Bar (the customer service representative urges consumers to check the labels on this one)
    The following Mars Chocolate products are NOT gluten-free:
  • M&M Pretzel flavor
  • Some packages of M&M Mint and M&M Coconut flavors
  • Milky Way Bar (original)
  • Mars Bar
  • Mars Combos (a snack mix)

Tootsie Roll Industries
Tootsie Roll Industries, which also makes Charms products, says that, as of October 2012, all of the companies confections are considered gluten-free with the exception of Andes cookies. "We do not use wheat, barley, rye, oats, triticale, spelt or any of their components and that includes our dusting on our conveyor belts. We do use corn and soy products in the manufacturing of our products."
    According to Tootsie Rolls Industries, the following candies are gluten-free:
  • Tootsie Rolls
  • Fruit Rolls
  • Frooties
  • Dots
  • Tropical Dots
  • Crows
  • Cella's Milk Chocolate Covered Cherries
  • Cella's Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries
  • Junior Mints

Smarties
Most of Smarties' line of products is considered gluten-free and vegan, according to the company. However, Smarties sells its products to different "re-baggers" as well as various retail outlets. Since a re-bagger buys products from many different companies and then places them in different packaging, only re-baggers can verify whether their manufacturing plants are free of gluten or other allergens. "If the UPC number on the packaging begins with '0 11206,' you can be assured that the product was packaged in one of our manufacturing facilities," which means it should be gluten-free," the company says. Smarties Gummies contain no gluten ingredients, but are manufactured in a facility that also processes wheat-containing products.
Contact Smarties through the company's website.
Hershey's

After several years of listing only a few products as gluten-free, Hershey's published a gluten-free list as of March 2012 that includes several more products, mainly Hershey's Kisses varieties. As of October 2012, the following list of Hershey's candies are gluten-free:
  • Almond Joy (all)
  • Mounds (all)
  • Hershey's Kisses
  • Hershey's Filled Chocolate Kisses
  • Hershey's Nuggets
  • Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar, only in the 1.55 oz. size
  • Hershey's Milk Chocolate with Almonds Bar, only in the 1.45 oz. size
  • Heath Bars
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (all except for seasonal shaped items)
  • Skor
  • Skor Toffee Bar
  • York Peppermint Pattie (all)
    The following Hershey's products are NOT gluten-free:

  • Symphony Bar

Wrigley

Wrigley makes chewing gum and other candy products (for more on gluten-free gum, see the link above). According to the company, "all U.S. Wrigley chewing gum and confection products have been assessed to be gluten-free with the exception of the products listed below, which contain ingredient(s) derived from wheat or are made on shared equipment that also processes products with wheat and may contain trace amounts of gluten." Here's the list of Wrigley products that do contain gluten:
  • Altoids Chocolate Dipped Mints (made on equipment that also processes wheat)
  • Altoids Smalls Peppermint Mints (contains wheat maltodextrin)
  • Hubba Bubba Gummi Tape Candy (contains wheat flour and wheat fiber)
  • Lucas and Swinkles Branded Candy Strips (contains wheat flour and wheat fiber)
Note that Wrigley makes Creme Savers, Lifesavers, Skittles and Starburst, which in the U.S. are free of any gluten sources, according to the company.
Contact Wrigley at (800) 974-4539 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting (800) 974-4539 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.

Jelly Belly

Jelly Belly makes jelly beans in an ever-expanding array of colors and flavors. According to the company, "all Jelly Belly beans are gluten-free, dairy-free, gelatin-free, vegetarian and OU Kosher." This includes licorice-flavored gluten-free Jelly Belly jelly beans (in most cases, licorice candy contains wheat).
However, other Jelly Belly candies, including Chocolate Malt Balls, Chocolate Bridge Mix, Licorice Bridge Mix, Black Licorice Buttons and Licorice Pastels, are NOT gluten-free. In addition, seasonal mixes sold around the holidays contain the malt balls, and so are not gluten-free.
Contact Jelly Belly at 800-522-3267 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 800-522-3267 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.

Necco

Necco probably is best known for its small sugar Valentine heart candies – the pastel-colored ones that say "Be Mine" and "True Love" – but my daughter's candy stash often turns up a few Necco products every Halloween, as well.

Just Born

Peeps marshmallow treats, made by Just Born, used to appear only at Easter, but in recent years we've seen Halloween Peeps shaped like pumpkins and ghosts, Christmas Peeps in the shape of trees, and heart-shaped Peeps for Valentine's Day.

According to Just Born, as of October 2012 all the company's marshmallow candies that are safe from cross-contamination will state "gluten-free" on the package by the ingredients listing. The modified food starch used in the products is corn starch, according to the company. Just Born also makes Mike and Ike Candies.
    According to Just Born, the following candies are gluten-free:
  • Mike and Ike Berry Blast
  • Mike and Ike Italian Ice

Ahoy Mateys! A Jake and the Neverland Pirates Party

My guy is obsessed with pirates, so when I asked what he wanted the theme of his 3rd birthday to be, I was not surprised when he said Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  With the help of Pinterest and my sister, Angela from the Mommy Stories, we had so much fun with this party.  Here's some of what did, as told through photos, all taken by Angela (thank you!!!)

A very special thank you to Jenni from Signed & Sealed who custom made the pirate ship Atticus banner!  She's amazing and you should definitely show her some love and check out her shop.

Also, my awesome cousin made the Atticus pirate shirt. She does amazing work, which you can check out on her business Facebook page. She makes custom towels, shirts and more!

I found the Jake supplies at Wal Mart for super cheap.  But also, check your local Facebook groups for a party swap, and you may be able to trade, or buy for cheap the supplies you are looking for.  I sold our leftover supplies before the party was even over!

Are Doritos Gluten Free?

I just had a hankering for Doritos, which has literally never happened before. But I thought I would look up to see if they are gluten free while I was thinking about them.  I found this information from the Frito Lay website, which any gluten free friend may find interesting:

(taken directly from the website)

The Frito-Lay products listed below do not contain wheat, rye, barley or oat ingredients (we include oats in this list as a precaution as oats are often commingled with gluten-containing grains).  Please note however, some of the products listed below may be manufactured on the same lines as products that contain gluten.  Although our lines are cleaned between production runs, Frito-Lay has not tested these products for gluten content and the ingredients in these products may have come into contact with gluten-containing products prior to manufacturing.  Individuals who are sensitive to gluten should take these factors into consideration in consuming these products.
In 2011 we reformulated Doritos Nacho Cheese Tortilla Chips to remove wheat from the recipe. While some older packages may show "wheat" on the ingredient statement, please be assured that all Doritos Nacho Cheese Tortilla Chips currently being sold in the US do not contain wheat.

Pin Away!

Thanks to my incredibly handy husband, you can now Pin any post from Chronicles of a Knaptime Knitter by clicking the Pin It button on the photos.  I don't know about you, but I'm obsessed with Pinterest and I am challenging myself to actually try some of the things I Pin.  All those yummy crock pot recipes I'm constantly Pinning, I'm going to cook some! Knitting patterns and DIY crafts, I'm coming for you!

I'll be sure to post some pictures of my Pinspirations and if you'd like to follow my boards, there's a handy little button on the right over there on the side of this post.  Do you find you Pin more than you do?  Or are you ambitious and have many Pinterest projects completed?

Turkey Pumpkin Chili Recipe

Hello, Friends! I apologize for my absence this past week or so.  Things have been very busy around here, as I'm sure you can relate to.  As we come into Fall, my favorite season of all, we are preparing for my husband to leave for Basic Training with the Army National Guard, and I've been cooking up a storm to spoil him with delicious meals before he ships out.  One of them, which I have had many recipe requests for, is this turkey pumpkin chili.  It's gluten free, perfect for fall, and oh-so-yummy.  This meal also freezes well, so you can either make it to freeze, or save any leftovers for a quick meal you can throw in the crock pot, or heat up stove top.

*I altered this recipe from a bunch of others I found, to make it the way I like it. Add what you like!


Here's what you'll need:
1 package of ground turkey (I usually use a little over a pound)
1/2 tsp olive oil (Saratoga Olive Oil is the absolute BEST)
1 small onion (chopped)
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
2 bay leaves
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp  Adobe seasoning
1 can cannellini beans
14.5 oz can Italian style crushed tomatoes, or a can of regular diced tomatoes
15 oz can pumpkin (not pie mix, just plain pumpkin)
2 cups chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
cheese to top it with
sour cream or Greek yogurt to top it with

Here's what to do:
Brown the turkey, and then add all the seasonings.  Let them all cook with the turkey for a minute or so.  Add the olive oil, onion, and garlic and let cook for a few minutes until the onions start to get soft.  Add the beans, tomatoes, and pumpkin and stir well.  Add the chicken broth.  Cook on medium for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, and then reduce heat to low, cover and let it simmer like this for about 45 minutes.  When done, add it to your favorite chili bowl, top with cheese and sour cream or Greek yogurt and enjoy!
