Gluten-Free Easter Candy List

Here is a list of gluten-free easter candy to add to your kids’ easter baskets, inside hidden plastic eggs, or to enjoy yourself!

These candies are noted by their manufacturers to have less than 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten which is celiac and gluten-free safe according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As always, before consuming any of these candies, read the nutrition label, check with the manufacturer if needed, and determine yours or your children’s sensitivity levels.

*Hershey’s Cadbury Easter Creme Eggs are still up for debate because Hershey’s has not listed the candy as gluten-free. The candy does not contain gluten ingredients on their labels, and they are not listed as being processed in a facility that contains wheat. Again, gauge the level of sensitivity to gluten and make a decision based on instincts and past experiences.
