Food allergies candy

It can be very difficult for a person to find foods they are allowed to eat when they have food allergies. Many of our foods are based on the very products that are considered the most common food allergies. Many individuals have food allergies to eggs, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, shellfish, and seafood. As you can imagine some of these properties are also found in candy. For instance candy bars usually have nuts, tree nuts, dairy, and some type of egg. You will also find that some of the candy can even have a wheat base depending on the type of candy bar. For many with food allergies this has meant just cutting candy out of their lives, but you will find a list below of certain food allergies candy that you can have. This is especially helpful if you have children. Children don’t like to feel left out because of a food allergy, and having a candy snack around that you can give them on occasion is a very delightful prospect.

Dum Dum Candy Canes are the first item on the list for food allergies candy. The Dum Dum has been created with sugar, corn syrup, citric acid, malic acid, artificial flavor, and color. This means that you will not find any diary, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, or even gluten in the snack. It provides a safe snack for whatever food allergy you may have. Even if you have multiple food allergies you will find this snack is available.

Spree Candy Canes are also made with sugar, corn syrup, citric acid, sodium citrate, artificial and natural flavors, as well as color added. You will again find that this candy is free of any common food allergies ingredients and that the equipment used is kept free of such foods.

Now and Later, Candy Canes, Jolly Ranchers, Wonka Chocolate candy canes, Gobstoppers, Sweet Tarts, and Hershey’s chocolate mint candy canes have all been made without the most common food allergies ingredients. This means that any of the above food allergies candy is going to be safe for you or your child. You do want to keep in mind that with food allergies some individuals tend to develop multiple allergies because they have too many antibodies in their system. It is always wise to rotate even the candy you allow yourself or your child to avoid any issues with eating the same foods.
