It’s October, and do you know what that means? It’s time to make sure you have all of your gluten-free ducks in a row…er, I mean candy.
It also means Cassandra eats too much candy. Eek! Unfortunately, this is especially true this week since SweetWorks sent me some samples. Who knew I loved Sixlets so much?
I certainly didn’t. But I know it now. I don’t know what it is about these candy-coated chocolate-flavored candies that are so irresistible. Maybe it’s the almost-tastes-like-chocolate-but-is-still-different quality. I seriously need to give these away now (but they’re so good!).
You can get Sixlets in all sorts of colors, including Halloween colors and metallic Thanksgiving/fall colors.
Orange & Black Skulls remind me a lot of sweet tarts coated in a hard candy shell. They are tart and tangy, and kind of dissolve in your mouth once you’ve broken through the outer shell. Not only are these scary faces gluten-free, but they are also soy- and corn-free. Happy Halloween, Braden!
Carter and Corice love the gumballs. I can’t remember the last time I chewed a gumball (though I had my own small gumball machine as a child). These are great for blowing big bubbles. I decided I had to cut them in half, though, as our little mouths just couldn’t handle the size too well (I usually only chew half a serving of regular gum as it is). We’ve had some pretty great bubble blowing contests (I always win, but I’ve had many years of practice ). There’s quite a variety of gumballs: eyeballs, pumpkin faces, plain colors, and ones filled with Nerds.
If you haven’t already, check out SweetWorks and their gluten-free candies. Prepare your lists for trick-or-treating. Make sure you’ve secured enough for your gluten-free ghosts and goblins.
Now to go work off that candy…
