Re: Allergy-Friendly Candy for Halloween

Allergy Schatz ·
While it's true that no food can truly be allergy free since we all suffer from different food allergies, I think this list is a great start. It is important to consider your sensitivity level when eating any processed food, especially those claiming to be allergy friendly. For my allergies, I find that the Surf brand are a great compromise for me and do not cause any outbreaks. I also discovered another brand at Whole Foods called Torie & Howard. They make organic fruit chews ( which...

Re: Updated for 2020! Allergy-Friendly Easter Candy Guide

Daniel F. ·
Hi, Thanks for the post! However, Wholesome Sweet candies are NOT corn free! Their ingredients are corn free with a couple exceptions, but all of their candies are poured into molds coated in corn starch. As the liquid forms an edge, it traps some of the corn starch in the candy. It may not bother some, depending how sensitive you are, but they contain more actual corn than many products with corn derivatives. Also Amanda's Own does have corn free chocolate, but their other candies listed,...

Daniel, that's a good point about making sure of a company's production methods. Corn can be especially tricky, since some people don't react to some corn derivatives, and others do. Thanks for the reminder that we should always call the company and double check!

Another nut-free chocolate option is Yowie. There are little characters or animals inside of a container that is coated in chocolate on the outside. Your child gets a nut-free chocolate and a toy which also comes with a conservation message (each animal comes with a paper saying what part of the world they come from, whether or not they are endangered, etc) http://www.yowiegroup.com/yowi...yowie-confectionery/

these look awesome and easy for the kids to help with. Thanks for sharing. we just made the sunbutter chocolate fudge last night and that is also great. has anyone tried a coacoa bar from the grocery store? I just got one that lists the ingredients as: 100% chocolate and that's it. I also need to stay clear of corn, wheat, soy, dairy, nuts & eggs..wondering if anyone has had any luck using a bar marked 100% chocolate.

These look great! How long do they stay "fresh" in the fridge and do they freeze well?

HealthyMama - I make them and put them in the freezer prior to dipping in chocolate. I flash freeze them and put in ziploc bags, then pull them out and dip in chocolate. They are much easier to dip in chocolate if they are frozen first. I usually keep a large ziploc bag in my freezer for DS to take to bday parties. He prefers these to cupcakes.

Hi Denise! I've never seen a chocolate bar that didn't have other ingredients such as sugar, cocoa butter and emulsifiers--what brand is it if you don't mind sharing? I've had some 100% chocolate, but it was basically just a brick of pressed cocoa powder and wouldn't have been suitable for using in a recipe like this one. Without those other ingredients I can't imagine it would melt very well. The other consideration would be to make sure you had contacted the manufacturer of the chocolate...
