gluten free halloween candy list for canada (2019)

Pumpkins on display

I’m back with the GF halloween list for 2019. I can’t believe October is here and halloween will be here in no time.

Like I mentioned last year, please DO NOT rely solely on this list. It is imperative that you read labels for the most up to date information on whether the product is gluten free or not.

This list of gluten free candy below was determined by me going into the grocery store and reading the ingredient lists.  Stores visited included Walmart, Costco, Save on Foods, and Nature’s Fare.

If you are not confident in reading ingredients lists for gluten, you may want to download my cheat sheet at the end of this post.

In Canada, gluten is easily identifiable on labels in plain english. If gluten is in the product, it is mandatory that it be labelled as such either in the CONTAINS (allergen statement below the ingredient list) or within the ingredient list itself. It will be labelled as barley, rye, oats, wheat or triticale. It is very rare that triticale is ever in a product. As such, it is typically the other four words that you will see on labels. You can remember these five words by remembering the acronym BROW(t). Gluten cannot hide under any other ingredients, including simple ingredients such as ‘natural flavors.’
