Easter Eggs

So next Sunday is Easter Sunday and if your lucky you will be indulging in lots of chocolate. If you have been eating gluten free for a while now you will most likely know what chocolate you can or cannot eat but for family members buying gluten free chocolate eggs may be a little puzzling.

This will be my second Easter holiday since being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease and although I am a little old for Easter eggs (so I have been told), the grandparents still like to treat me to some chocolate goodness. Last year I got a couple of gluten free eggs – Boo! People that don’t know a lot about Coeliac Disease just look for anything that says gluten free and get it. So here’s some information to pass on to the relatives or for yourself if you are buying for a coeliac…

A lot of the well-known chocolate brands are gluten free! Woo! I know quite a few because… Well just because its yummy! As a starting point it’s most likely that any chocolate with biscuit in it will contain gluten. My aim for this blog was to do a little research and find some well known brands that you know your relative enjoy and point out the gluten free ones – but I found something even better!

Below is a list if gluten free Easter eggs from companies you will recognise. This was taken from Glutafin’s blog and its amazing! This is great example of the help that is out there for Coeliac’s as people are becoming more aware. To check out Glutafin’s blog click here.
