Allergy-Friendly Candy Options

Disclosure: I received these products for free from Oriental Trading. My opinions are my own and I was not paid or required to write this review.

As a Mom to a daughter with food allergies I have been really pleased to see the outreach and participation in the many teal Halloween initiatives that have taken place over the last few years focused on inclusion for those children with food allergies and special diets.  If you haven’t seen my round-up of non-food treats this year for a teal Halloween, be sure to check out these top pick  from Oriental Trading where you can also enter to win one of two assortments of them.

In addition to non-food treats many of you may want to offer candy as well for your trick-or-treaters and Oriental Trading has you covered with many options available.  Today I am sharing four allergy-friendly candy options to hand out this Halloween.

These four options are all peanut, tree nut, egg, gluten free, fish, and shellfish free.  In addition the Dum-Dums®, Smarties®, and Tootsie Rolls® are also dairy free.  The Hershey’s® Kisses® are free of 6 of the top allergens as they contain soy and milk.

The Dum-Dums® and Smarties® are available combined in the same bag or separately. 

Below is the label for the Dum-Dum® Original Pops as well as their allergy statement.  They are free from peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, gluten, fish, shellfish, dairy, and soy lecithin.  They do contain a trace amount of refined soy oil used in processing.

Below is the label for the Smarties® Candy Rolls as well as their allergy statement.  They are free from peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, gluten, fish, shellfish, dairy, and soy.  

With such a large bag combined these two candies fill up a bucket by themselves!

Another allergy-friendly candy option is Tootsie Rolls®

The label and allergy statement for the Tootsie Rolls® are below.  These are made in a facility free from peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, and gluten.

A fun way to offer these for trick-or-treaters is on a jack-o-lantern plate using the Tootsie Rolls® as eyes, nose and the mouth!

The fourth option is Hershey’s®Kisses®.  I love the fall colored wrappers on these, and you can also find many other colored Hershey’s® Kisses® on Oriental Trading.  

Hershey’s® Kisses® are free from peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, gluten, fish, and shellfish – and do contain soy and milk.  The label on the bag does not include an allergy statement, so if you are concerned about the facility please contact them.  

Placing these in a candy dish with some fun colored spider rings is a fun way to offer these treats!

I hope these four candies from Oriental Trading are helpful for you in choosing allergy-friendly candy options for you, your family, and your trick-or-treaters this Halloween!

With non-food treats to food treats, Oriental Trading is truly your Halloween headquarters!
