Gluten Free Sweets at Blair Candy
I don't know about you, but ever since developing Celiac Disease, I eat a lot less candy. Not that I don't love candy... I have a ruthless sweet-tooth... It's just that I never know if the candy I want has had hidden gluten in it. And constantly reading all that tiny print, mostly names of unknown artificial ingredients, can become tedious. As a result, there has been much less candy in my diet.
However, just recently I was turned on to Blair Candy Co. Blair Candy has taken the guess-work out of finding name-brand candy that doesn't contain gluten, and has created a separate order page just for people with gluten issues. Just click on this link: Blair Candy Co. Gluten Free Page.
The candy is conveniently broken down into the subcategories: gluten free candy bars; gluten free gummy candy; gluten free gum; gluten free lollipops; gluten free novelty candy; and gluten free seasonal candy. I ordered some of my all-time favorites: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Runts, Jelly Belly jelly beans, and some Orbit White gum. The package arrived in just a few days, and I've been enjoying it (in moderation of course) ever since:) Jelly Belly beans are awesome!!!
For you fellow GF sweet-tooths out there, Blair Candy Company has made things so much easier. Check their site out!
Just So You Know...
The information presented in this blog is intended to educate and entertainment. However, I'm not a medical expert. I also do not know absolutely everything about Celiac Disease. What I do know has been learned through trial and error, research, and what has been taught to me by friends who also share my food-related affliction. Please take the time to do your own research about Celiac Disease and gluten-related issues. I have a list of links to useful resources along the left-side of this blog. Also, feel free to cross-check my statements. If you find contrary information, please let me know. Thanks so much for visiting Trav's Gone Gluten Free!
