Holidays are exhausting especially when dealing with food restrictions. Label reading is just as important for Halloween. While many people have varying tolerances to their offending food(s), we have to avoid products containing gluten & any products that were processed in a facility with gluten. Also, I have an allergy to peanuts, so I avoid it on my own. Below I have taken a few snapshots of popular candy to show the norm when it comes to candy packaging: may contain or contains allergens.
Thankfully there are companies like Smarties that provide a perfect candy for Halloween parties, school events and trick or treating being that they are gluten free, allergen free, vegan, individually wrapped and tamper evident. Even if you don’t have any food restrictions, I think it is important to consider having allergy friendly options for those who do. The boys’ school hands out smarties a lot usually with an “I am a smartie!” label. My boys enjoy Smarties and it makes it even better that all of them can have it. It is a treat for them with the added perk that it is gluten free!
Whenever shopping for Halloween candy (or other events where people potentially have food restrictions), consider Smarties. If you don’t have to deal with food restrictions, Mayfair has a package with 12 different brands (including Smarties of course) that allows you to provide allergy friendly options for the unexpected trick-or-treaters!
