In those few rare moments that I’ve been in the store by myself and not in a hurry, I have looked at some of the candy labels. And this year, I am finding “wheat” on quite a few labels that I’ve not seen before.
Remember that just because one type of candy is gluten-free in it’s normal form, that does not mean it will be in all forms. For instance, at Easter, Reese’s makes little egg-shaped candies that contain wheat flour.
So take the time now, while there’s still a good selection at the stores, and check the labels. If you are prepared, you are less likely to get hurt or terribly annoyed. 🙂
In other (somewhat opposite) news, I just have to brag on myself a little bit: since November, I have lost 9 pounds. But what is even better, is that I can now work really hard in an hour-long Zumba class AND play a hard hour of racquetball. My game’s getting better, too.
Have you been able to make some healthier changes to your life lately? If I could just give up this Easter candy corn I bought, and the chocolate, I might really make some headway. 🙂
