The Ultimate Gluten-Free Chocolate List

Ultimate Gluten-Free Chocolate List

Chocolate and candy are a quintessential part of Valentine’s Day. However, it can get tricky when you are gluten-free, or buying for someone who is gluten-free, as hidden gluten lurks in many confectionary treats. To help you safely navigate your way through the virtual/in-person chocolate shelves, I’ve put together this ultimate gluten-free chocolate list.

Adding chocolate to a gift, or using it as a hostess gift is common. This is especially true of Valentine’s Day when thoughts go to flowers and chocolate. If you are looking for non-food gifts, check out this awesome Valentine’s Gift guide or check out any of the other holiday gift guides for inspiration.

Keep in mind, that even with products on the ‘safe” list of our ultimate gluten-free chocolate list, if it involves a pretzel, cookie, cake, or another item that is commonly made with wheat/gluten, do not eat it unless it is labelled gluten-free.

Use this list as a guideline; however, you should always read the label to ensure that the product is made gluten-free in your area. Manufacturing formulations can be different between counties and/or can change with special or holiday versions of products. Also, recipes and manufacturing practices can change so it’s always a good idea to check labels.

Remember when reading any food labels (chocolate or otherwise) you want to know the alternative names for gluten, what “may contain” vs. “contains” means. You may even want to use a scanner app to help you decipher if a product is safe. Check out the other tactics and practices to avoid gluten in our Ultimate Gluten-Free Guide for Beginners.

DISCLAIMER: Most of the chocolate on this list is manufactured in facilities or on equipment that is also used to manufacture products containing gluten. Please be sure to determine if it is safe for your own personal consumption.

No Whey Foods

All No Whey Foods products are 100% Milk Free, Peanut Free, Tree Nut Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Sesame Free, No Artificial Colors and Flavors ! Free of the top common 9 allergens! Vegan and Kosher!


Other products are gluten-free but made in a facility and/or on equipment used to manufacture products with gluten. Check product(s) online and confirm ingredients.

Most products do not contain gluten from added ingredients. Those that do contain wheat gluten, such as S’mores clearly show the presence of wheat in the ingredient listings.

See’s Candy

Candies produced in See’s Candies facilities do not contain gluten, and these products are the vast majority of those we sell. We sell a small amount of specialty candies that we purchase from other partner confectioners. Although these don’t contain gluten, they are manufactured in shared facilities or in shared equipment with gluten-containing products. These products are candy canes, peanut butter bites, lemon drops, apple pie bites, Hanukkah hard candy, hot cocoa, chocolate covered coffee beans sold in our retail shops and online at Sees.com.


Hopefully, with the help of this ultimate gluten-free chocolate list, you or the person you are buying for, can safely enjoy a sweet chocolate treat.

Are there any other brands or varieties of chocolate you would add to our ultimate gluten-free chocolate list?
Is there any brand that should be avoided that needs to be added to an “unsafe” list? Please let us know in the comments. In sharing information, we can help educate each other and live full and safe gluten-free lives.

❤ Cheers to all my GFF BFF’s enjoying some gluten-free chocolate this Valentines Day! ❤

Don’t milky ways have barley in them?

Elyse the Gluten-Free Foodee January 21, 2023 - 4:19 pm

Hi MH,
You are right, but ” The Milky Way Midnight and Milky Way Caramel do not have gluten containing ingredients such as the malted barley.” that is why are on the list and not the original Milky way.
Hope this helps.

May I suggest Guittard’s milk chocolate baking chips? Best chocolate. See’s and Ghirardelli are my go-to’s as well.

Elyse the Gluten-Free Foodee January 31, 2023 - 11:28 am

Hi Sara,
I will look into the Guittard’s milk chocolate baking chips. Thank you for the tip!

I hope our recipes and resources help your friend.

Thank you for your sharing this list. I have a very bad Gluten Free intolerance and this really is great for me to know! I found out about my Celiac Disease in the 1970s. It was hard to find anything that tasted like regular food! The companies that are making the Gluten free food that tastes just like the original type, that would be poisonous to me, deserve our gratitude! Thank you too, for making it easier to find the goodies that are gluten free! Bless you!

Elyse the Gluten-Free Foodee September 7, 2023 - 10:36 am

Hi Sherry,
I can only imagine how hard it must have been in the 70s. In know it was difficult for me to go gluten-free 8 nearly 9 years ago and I had products to choose from.
You are so welcome. It is why we created the list because knowing which brands ( even if you should should always read the package and double check individual products) saves time and gives you a starting point. We tried to create a list that not only should which brands are labelled gluten-free, but also ones that that just don’t contain gluten for those who are non-celiac gluten sensitive.
Thank you for the kind words and taking the time to comments- check out our holiday lists ( Halloween, Holiday, Valentines, Easter)
