The Ultimate Gluten Free Valentine’s Day Candy List

Updated 2024

Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching, and that means giving sweet treats to family and friends to enjoy. However, it may have you scrambling to find safe gluten-free candy options for your festivities. To help you navigate your way through the virtual/in-person Candy shelves, here is the ultimate gluten free Valentine’s Day candy list.

Last week we shared the ultimate gluten-free Valentine’s Day chocolate list – so no matter if you prefer chocolate or candy, we have your sweet tooth covered. In the past, we have shared the ultimate gluten-free chocolate list, and the ultimate gluten-free candy list, which have a wider array of products. Today’s candy list focuses on treats specifically for Valentine’s day. This list can help if you need treats that are safe for a classroom, or as a gift for your kids, or loved ones.

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 countries 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 the labels.

Remember when reading any food labels (chocolate or otherwise) you want to know the alternative names for gluten, and 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 and 15 Steps for going gluten free.

DISCLAIMER: Also, products that are labelled gluten free are clearly indicated on the list. Other products simply do not contain gluten in the ingredients, but are not labelled gluten free. Most of the chocolate on this list is manufactured in facilities, or on equipment that is also used to manufacture products which contain gluten. Please be sure to determine if it is safe for your own personal consumption.

“Product manufactured and/or packaged on lines in which other products containing any of the “Big 8” will contain an allergen statement. Allergens listed explicitly in the ingredients may not be listed dually in the allergen statement. For every Ferrara product that contains allergens, we list a “CONTAINS” statement immediately following the ingredient list on all of our packages, which clearly indicates which allergens are present. If there is no “CONTAINS” statement following the ingredient list, then the product has no allergens. Additionally, however, Ferrara uses a “MADE IN” statement, which reflects any allergens within the manufacturing facility where the product is made out of an abundance of caution for those concerned with allergies.”
