Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Peanut-Free Candy {Guest Review}

My 2 year old daughter has a giant sweet tooth and as much as I try to curb it, sugar still sneaks into her diet. We also have to deal with gluten intolerance and an egg allergy, which can make finding a safe treat difficult.

So, when I had the chance to sample some of the candies from Gimbal’s Fine Candies, I was so excited. Not only are they allergen free (think no gluten, peanuts, egg, etc), but they are also free of high fructose corn syrup! Plus, knowing that they are made with real fruit juice, this momma couldn’t say “no”.

Gimbal’s was nice enough to send us the gourmet jellybeans and the Cherry Lovers to sample. With the gourmet jellybeans, we had fun picking through the jellybeans and guessing each of the 41 flavors. With fun unique flavors like pomegranate, boysenberry, or even baja margarita, Gimbal’s quickly worked their way into being a favorite brand of jellybean. Their website also has 20 recipes for fun new jellybean flavors like Key Lime Pie and Blueberry Muffin.

The biggest hit in our house, though, was the Cherry Lovers selection we received. With flavors like cherry vanilla, cherry cheesecake (which really tastes like cheesecake!), wild cherry, and cherry kiwi , the cherry lover in your family will definitely be satisfied with the selection. My husband thought he was in candy heaven. So much so, that within four days, my husband had eaten both bags of the Cherry Lovers jellybeans! I’ve already had to order a large container to satisfy his cherry craving.

There are several size choices with Gimbal’s candies, but I received the 13-14oz packages. For $4.29 a bag, we will definitely get some more for an occasional treat.

What is your family’s favorite treat?

  • I’m fortunate that my kids can eat anything, but I don’t like all the extra chemicals and additives that are in most candy. These sound yummy! Especially the Cherry Lovers fruit chews. I will have to check these out as an occasional treat.

  • Thankfully my kids don’t have allergies, BUT Lavery has when she was a newborn and I had to find dairy and soy free products. I think it’s great so many companies are jumping on the bandwagon where they an offer a variety, because food allergies and very real and around.. thanks for sharing these, we might just have to try them!!

  • I must get some of these asap! Due both of my kids having tons of food allergies, they very rarely eat candy. I love that there are more companies coming out products especially desserts and sweets that people with food allergies can have.

    As a parent, I like that my kids can now experience the same foods that other kids their ages and myself & the Mr can eat with no problems. Thanks for sharing.

    • I do not envy you at all. I nannied for a child with severe food allergies and have other friends whose children also have food allergies. Glad there is more awareness and hoping for continued products your family can enjoy.
