If you live in a household with dietary restrictions and food allergies, a candy craving can make things difficult when all you and your gang want is something ooey gooey. We believe candy-induced tummy trouble should be caused only by the sheer volume of too much sugary goodness, not because of an allergy! So here’s an updated list of candies and special treats guaranteed to be free of the most common trouble-makers, like peanuts and tree nuts, gluten and dairy. Feel free to use these lists to help navigate your way down the grocery aisle, but remember: to always check ingredient lists as recipes and manufacturing practices change from time to time – especially at Halloween and other holidays when candy manufacturing is at full tilt!

Vermont Nut Free Chocolates

Annually a top pick: the name says it all. Lovingly made in small batches in Vermont, but an undeniable favorite nationwide, and mail-order customers keep on coming back for more because they can't get enough of these incredibly delicious chocolates, creamy fudge, and every other candy you can think of! How about jelly beans? Check! Gummy Bears, crunchy-chewy Pretzel Caramel Bark? You know it. What about chocolate-dipped jumbo marshmallows on a stick topped with bright sprinkles galore? Yep, they got that, too. Worry-free seasonal candies shipped anywhere in the U.S., with everything from holiday chocolate coins to spooktacular Halloween shapes, you name it: literally, they got it. Go nuts, Party People.
