If you haven’t encountered any Easter candy yet, I am impressed. Luckily there are many gluten-free options out there for us. Even better, there are some incredible websites out there that have done extensive research to make our holidays safely gluten-free. My good friend DeAnna, from iamgf, clued me into an incredible website called MyGlutenFacts.com. Besides having a database of all kinds of gluten-free products, they have a great gluten-free easter candy list updated for 2011.
Make sure you check out the box on the upper left box on the home page that explains how they classify gluten-free products. They have three categories; Cleaned Production Lines, Dedicated Gluten Free Production Lines (which includes my all-time-favorite, Peanut M&M’s), and the safest category, Dedicated Gluten Free Facility.
My Gluten Facts also offers printable versions of both US and Canadian Candy Lists.

Don’t see your favorite candy? MyGlutenFacts only lists gluten-free candies that they have researched. You may have to do your own research. A good place to start is the Celiac Family Easter Candy List 2010. Yes, it does say 2010, so obviously this list is outdated, however, Heather from Celiac Family has included many links to candy manufacturer statements and that would be a great starting point to check current statuses.
