Here is a partial list of major candy manufacturers:
Hershey's does not publish a gluten-free candy list because "the ingredients can change at any
time," according to one of the company's customer service representatives.

As of September 2010, plain milk chocolate Hershey's Kisses, Hershey's Milk Chocolate bar in the
1.55 ounce size and Hershey's Milk Chocolate with Almonds bar in the 1.55 ounce size were the
only candy products that Hershey's considers gluten-free. The company says it will list any
ingredients containing wheat, barley, rye, oats and malt on the label, and also will disclose shared
equipment or shared facilities on the label.

Contact Hershey's at 800-468-1714.

Jelly Belly is like a veritable factory kaleidoscope of jelly beans in nearly every conceivable color
and flavor. According to the company, "all Jelly Belly beans are gluten-free, dairy-free, gelatin-
free, vegetarian and OU Kosher."

Contact Jelly Belly at 800-522-3267.

Peeps marshmallow treats, made by Just Born, used to appear only at Easter, but in recent years
we've seen Halloween Peeps shaped like pumpkins and ghosts.

According to Just Born, as of September 2010 the company was in the process of updating its
own package labels to reflect products that are gluten-free. However, the company warns,
"Please be aware that we do sell some of our products in bulk to other manufacturers who may be
repackaging them in another facility. We encourage consumers to read the labels carefully for any
gluten information on products that might be packaged elsewhere."

Contact Just Born at 888-645-3453

Mars Chocolate makes M&M's, Dove, Snickers and other products. As of September 2010, all
M&M's EXCEPT FOR pretzel M&M's are gluten-free. Snickers and Snickers Dark bars, all Dove
chocolate products, and the Munch Nut bar also are listed as gluten-free.

Necco probably is best known for its small sugar Valentine heart candies – the pastel-colored
ones that say "Be Mine" and "True Love" – but my daughter's candy stash often turns up a few
Necco products every Halloween.

According to Necco, the following products do not contain gluten from wheat, rye, oats or barley:
Necco Wafers, Mary Janes, Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kisses, Sweethearts Conversation Hearts
(available for Valentine's Day only), Canada Mint & Wintergreen Lozenges, Haviland Thin Mints
and Candy Stix. In addition, Clark Bars, Skybars, Haviland Peppermint & Wintergreen Patties,
Necco Candy Eggs (available at Easter only), Talking Pumpkins (available at Halloween only),
Squirrel Nut Caramels and Squirrel Nut Zippers, Banana Split and Mint Julep Chews, and
ULTRAMINTS are gluten free.

Contact Necco at 781-485-4800.

Honey, Butterfinger (but NOT the Butterfinger Crisp or the Butterfinger Stixx), Goobers, Nips
(both regular and sugar-free), Oh Henry!, Raisinets and Sno-Caps.
