Even though my trick or treating days are long gone, I still love to indulge in Halloween candy and treats! I’ve rounded up my top ten list of the best allergy friendly (nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free) treats to enjoy during the holiday season.
If there’s one thing this world needs, it’s more nut-free bakeries. While I’d like them to be gluten-free and nut-free, I have more than enough gluten-free spots to pick from and want my husband to feel the joy of being able to select any item from a bakery display case and feel the security of knowing that it’s 100% safe for him to eat. If only we lived in Canada! Sullivan & Bleeker Baking Co. in Toronto, Canada is 100% nut-free bakery that offers homemade candy, cookies, cupcakes, and jarcakes.
While I am guilty of having a sweet tooth, I do try to make smart choices when indulging in treats, especially candy. I’ve made it a rule to stay away from anything with high fructose corn syrup which immediately eliminates most brands of candy, until I stumbled upon Surf Sweets last year. Surf Sweets candies are gluten free, nut-free, soy-free, GMO-free, casein free, organic, and allergy friendly (free of the most common food allergens including wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish)!
2016 has been the year of the coconut for me. I’ve been limiting the amount of dairy in my diet, and it’s been all about coconut, all the time! A few weeks ago I stumbled across Coco’s Creamery on instagram and immediately fell in love with their beautiful packaging and delicious flavors. What sold me even more than the design of the package was the fact that all of their frozen desserts are dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, soy-free, and peanut-free.
It’s hard to believe that Easter is just around the corner! In an attempt to create the most allergen-free Easter basket possible, I’ve rounded up 16 of my favorite nut-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free chocolate and non-chocolate candy picks. Enjoy!
