Gluten Free Chocolate and Sweets

Gluten Free Chocolate and Sweets

If you are unsure what chocolate and sweets are gluten free in the UK take a look at this list. If you want to see a more updated list take a look at our 2018 list

Added 10th October 2015
Updated 3 weeks ago

For a more up to date list see our 2018 list

I see so many people surprised that they can't have their favourite chocolate and sweets anymore, some of the popular do contain gluten but most of the time it's down to cross contamination why products are off limits. Here we have come up with a list of popular brands and the products either the manufacturer and/or Coeliac UK have said are safe for Coeliacs. Remember to be vigilant when it comes to the ingredients as you should with anything you consume, caramel containing barley, wheat as a filler or used in moulds and bars containing cereals are usually where you will see gluten within chocolate most often, although it isn't restricted to just those.

Remember this list doesn't contain everything, only popular brands, there are also plenty of supermarket own brands and smaller brands which are also gluten free.

Is Bournville chocolate gluten free or is it contaminated in the factory?
29th December 2019
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 1st January 2020

Bourneville is a may contain.

Hi. Do you know if the recipe has changed for the Cadbury's twin pot desserts? There has always been some that are not gluten free but the wispa, buttons, flake etc have always been fine. I've just bought some buttons ones and was just looking at the label and it says may contain wheat! These are my 6 year olds favourite and he'll be gutted if he can't have them. Thanks
20th December 2019
After reading wispa are gluton free I've tried a couple of bars and from the heroes box...they are not gluton free..I assure You!
25th September 2019
Just bought a box of heroes and was happily tucking in when I read the ingredients and seen barley malt extract, not sure if this is since the addition of double deckers but heroes are out of bounds now, very disappointed.
14th September 2019
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 16th September 2019

Cadbury have confirmed all but the dinky deckers are still safe as they are made on separate lines.

Thank you just trying to find out :)

Hello I can not seem to find any information on milka anywhere and I'm not sure if the gluten free or not things like there bars/ cookies etc. Thank you :)
17th June 2019
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 17th June 2019

Milkas carry a maintain if i remember right

I've been gluten intolerant for a few years now, when first faced with this I researched at the time foods I could and could have & was delighted that I could still have my occasional galaxy chocolate treat. It wasn't until I just happened to read the small print on the new Galaxy Dark bars that I was horrified to discover the dreaded ‘May contain barley, wheat etc' .. is this the same with the regular galaxy bars too?!
14th June 2019
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 17th June 2019

Regular Galaxy bars are still fine, the new dark ones though carry the may contain warning. They are probably manufactured on a different production line.

I thought bournville was gluten free I get so confused with what is and what isn't. As some apps tell you some chocolates are then other apps tell you different.

I looked at the kinder website, and it said that the schoko-bons do contain gluten
5th August 2018
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 6th August 2018

The recipe may have changed since I last updated the blog.

This last had been such a big help thank you. I was wondering about Wrigley's Extra Peppermint Chewing Gum is that okay to have?

Hi. Snickers in UAE does contain Gluten. It is clearly mentioned on the bar that it Contains Gluten.

Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 5th March 2018

In the UK they don't, as far any other part of the world this list won't apply to all the bars given as factories vary all over the world.

hi, I've seen your list and I am a bit confused... This is what I can see abaout Bounty: BOUNTY® contains Milk Chocolate 36% and Coconut 22%. Ingredients: Sugar, Desiccated Coconut, Glucose Syrup (Sources include Wheat), Milk Solids, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Invert Sugar, Vegetable Fat, Emulsifiers (471, Soy Lecithin), Humectant (Glycerol), Salt, Natural Flavour (Vanilla Extract), Peanuts.
When you just check the ingredients, can't see always includes gluten or wheat, but glucose syrup does....

Hi are fruit pastels gluten free and also yorkie mars bars and also drum stick squashies thanks
21st February 2018
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 21st February 2018

Hi, fruit pastilles and drum stick squashies are given on this list as they are gluten free. Mars Bars are not gluten free as they contain barley, and Yorkie bars carry a may contain warning.

Are Jelly Babies gluten free?
Bernadette Kutch
5th February 2018
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 5th February 2018

Depends on the brands, Bassetts Jelly Babies are not gluten free, some home brand ones are though

Myself I always avoid soy lecithin as soya could be contaminated with gluten. Specially that these chocolate bars are quite cheap and that means they use cheap soy to produce soy lecithin. Nobody will check wether the soya for it is contaminated or not. To be sure I always choose soya free chocolate, which is of course hard to find and more expensive. But the taste is also richer and it is worth to pay more.
1st February 2018
This list is amazing. Do you know if there is anything that we can have from hotel chocolate?

Thank you
17th January 2018
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 19th January 2018

Hi Jane, Unfortunately due to manufacturing methods NO Hotel Chocolate products are safe for Coeliacs, all are a may contain, even when purchasing in the store if they mention you're Coeliac the staff will tell you it's not safe to eat.

My favourite chocolate is bornville, but as this is not GF (I think) has anyone got suggestion of an alternative, I need it to be reasonable size bars as I use it to make brownies. Not to keen on green and blacks.

I am trying to find out if FAMOUS NAMES SIGNATURE COLLECTIONS LIQUEURS are gluten free thank you so much

Hi can you please tell whether thorntons chocolate smothered fudge is gluten free?
Thank you

As far as I know it is fine, however Thorntons shops have been telling people everything is a may contain despite no warnings on the packets.

Hi, do you know if Lidl chocolate is ok? Also I know that Smarties are not gluten free but is there anything out there, similar, that is? My daughter misses them so much!
3rd December 2017
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 6th December 2017

Hi Bianca, some Lidl chocolate is ok I believe, some not, I don't have a list of which is safe though. Chocolate M and M's are the closest I think to smarties.

Marks and spencers and I think sainsburies do a sausage roll in their fridge section and I know you can get the schar product sausage roll for the freezer

Firstly thank you so much for this list it is so helpful could you let me know if Fruitella is gluten free please i cannot seem to find the answer.

Thank you
Andrea hiatt
5th November 2017
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 6th November 2017

According to Fruitella's website the glucose syrup used can be derived from wheat but as stated by them and Coeliac UK, glucose syrup from wheat is safe for Coeliacs as it falls well below the 20ppm threshold required by law.

Just to confirm, you say that box of milk tray isn't gluten free?

Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 24th September 2017

You can get frozen ones in some supermarkets, in the free from section. Or some specialist bakeries such as Voakes do them which can be bought online.

Hiya there i got step son that own 1 and my boyfriend just start to get see him and he just been told he got gulten free. But we no sure were to start looking. We need help find out what food he can have as said at start he just start seeing him .
Colette Telfer
23rd September 2017
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 24th September 2017

Hi Colette, we have some lists in our blogs for sweets and crisps and we mention new gluten free products all the time. Remember BROWS, barley, rye, oats, wheat, spelt for an easy way to remember what he can't eat. Fresh fruit and vegetable, meat etc are naturally gluten free. Check everything though. Coeliac UK is a good place to join for a food guide if you are not confident enough to find out what is and isn't safe.

Whilst the ingredients don't state that gluten is present can I just get confirmation that this product is ok:?

Are Revels safe to eat?
21st July 2017
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 21st July 2017

No, because of the malteaser one in the pack. If you do manage to eat around them they are all made on the same production line and in same bag so high risk of cross contamination.

My husband is celiac, Can you tell me if Mint Imperials are gluten free? t
7th July 2017
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 7th July 2017

It would depend on the make but most of them are fine.

Hi Ian. The majority of cocoa powder if gluten free so if you wanted to do a basic butter cream filling with butter, icing sugar and cocoa powder you could do it that way. For a ganache you just want a normal chocolate, galaxy is deemed safe by Coeliac UK or you could use Green and Blacks (but check the packaging as some have recently changed)

Hi Anne, yes Coeliac UK says they are safe

About your answer of Snickers... ok, it doesn´t say anithing about gluten free... it might have cross contamination of other products the company makes... don´t you think? are you celiac? do you eat it? It might be confusing to people!

Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 30th March 2017

Yes I am coeliac and other people I know are too, we all eat them without issue. Coeliac UK have snickers (all varieties) listed as safe on their product lists. Mars have also said to us they are safe when we contacted them as they aren't on the same production line as anything containing gluten.

Snickers??? Seriuslly???? It has wheat for sure!!!

Cadburys heroes are fine, as are quality streets and roses.

This list is great.

Didn't realise how simple a list can be, you do not always want explanations, just yes or no's are better, and list does exactly that.

23rd December 2016
Love this list. Christmas, Easter and birthdays are made easier! I always like to give the teen nieces and nephews chocolate with their vouchers, since one was diagnosed with coeliac I had thought it was going to be a nightmare, reading all kinds of labels standing in the shop for hours...... so a big thank you you've saved me hours!

Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 21st November 2016

Cadbury list on their website which bars are safe and do not contain gluten or wheat, the ones on this list are on their list and are listed on Coeliac UK as being safe for Coeliac sufferers.

Do you know if the items listed are dairy free free as well?
18th November 2016
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 18th November 2016

Some of the dark ones probably are, but other than that it's unlikely, manufacturers like Moo Free are guaranteed gluten and dairy free.

Technically yes, but they are made on the same production line as everything else in the Celebrations therefore nothing in the celebrations can be classed as gluten free.

I'm so glad that you put twirl in the list as that's all I'm eating at the moment but such a great list

I see you have Swizzels Matlow rainbow drops as gluten free on your list. They are not. From the gluten free list from the company, they are the only product which do contain gluten, although from experience, I find refreshers suspect too.

only had a quick flick through but immediately saw barley sugar.... not had it so don't know but surely this contains barley which would mean it is not gf?
1st December 2015
Alison @ Coeliac Sanctuary replied to this comment on 4th December 2015

Hi Julia, modern confectioners don't use barley in barley sugars, barley sugars when they were made in the victorian age used barley water, cream of tartar and cane sugar, these days it is just sugar, glucose syrups and flavouring. The name has purely just stuck from it's original form.

My husband bought Maynard's midget gems yesterday without his glasses on for our boys with Coeliac and the packet read may contain wheat! I'm just glad my boys only had a couple before it was realised, just hope it hadn't caused problems inside. Hope this helps.
