I love Peeps and they have so many new flavors- Hot Tamales flavor is a new fave, which is powerful in scent, yet mild in taste, even though it says “fierce cinnamon”. Specifically says “gluten-free” on package back. I hope the Easter Bunny brings me a basketful! (Allergen warning says, “may contain milk”.)

Another new delicious treat are Starburst Jumbo Jelly Beans! Bite them in half or enjoy them whole and savor them slowly.

Happy Easter to all! – AFI

I’ve also found the most delicious Scottie Dog Licorice at my local market, made by Gimbal’s Candy in the ol’ USA (San Francisco!) Peanut free, tree nut free, dairy free, gluten free, soy free, egg free, and kosher pareve! AND no high fructose corn syrup either! I found them on clearance several months ago and bought all the bags they had, then a few weeks ago, they were back at my market in new packaging! (Pictured- (L) old black & white, (R) new white & black). Although these are not in individual portion-size bags, they can still be enjoyed by those you know by placing them in snack-size bags. I love them for going to the movie theater, I make them last by cutting each dog in 3 pieces with scissors and savoring each piece.

Yum!

Something more to consider about my beloved Scotties…

I love your licorice! I can’t eat other licorice brands because I have a gluten sensitivity. A friend is saying that black licorice can cause heart disease because it robs the body of potassium. Because of the sweetening compound “glycyrrhizin”. I don’t see this as an ingredient on your packages and am hoping it is not included, because I have genetic heart issues. Can you confirm whether this ingredient is in your Scotties that I love so much?

Please forgive the delay in responding to your question. (over 1 month to reply to me)

Thank you for your compliment of our Black Licorice Scottie Dogs.  They do contain a small amount of Glycyrrhizin because we use Real Licorice Root extract, along with Pure Anise.  Glycyrrhizin naturally occurs in Licorice Root.  The amount of Licorice Root Extract is pretty low. 0.02% and the amount of Glycyrrhizin is a portion of that.  Just to be on the safe side though, you should discontinue eating this product until you speak with your physician.

We hope that the amount is negligible enough that you will be able to continue enjoying them, since it’s obviously a favorite.

Thank you for writing and again, please accept my apology for keeping you waiting.

Sincerely,

Gimbal’s Customer Service

Find Me Gluten Free

Not only has the air started to cool and the leaves started to fall, but you’ve also been bombarded with pumpkin recipes everywhere you look (and man do they look delicious). These signs mean one thing… it’s almost Halloween! Besides planning the perfect costume, Halloween can get a little tricky and require a little extra planning for someone with celiac disease or food allergies. There are lots of delicious treats out there to eat, but before you start filling your bag (or your child’s bag), it is important to learn which candies are gluten free and safe to consume. The Celiac Disease Foundation provides a nice list of gluten free Halloween treats here. To be extra safe, it is always smart to double check with the manufacturers of your favorite candies.
