Sweets for your little Easter sweetie…

001

One tactic I have taken with Sammy’s Easter basket is to focus on toys, books and movies more than candy.  We are very fortunate although that are now many great companies offering gluten, dairy and dye-free candy options. I have listed some below.  Most of them require online shopping so get your orders in now.

Goody Good Stuff  – These dye and gluten-free candies are for “big boys.” I am so glad to see a safe candy for Sam that is not “babyish” (gummy bears). These actually taste like cola (as far as I can remember…it’s been a long time).  Available at Whole Foods Market.

Sam loves my favorite treat, JJ’s Sweets Cocomels…dairy-free caramels. They are pricy so he only gets them on special occasions. This will be one of the surprises in his Easter basket. Available at Sprout’s Farmers’ Market, New Leaf Community Markets and The Natural Candy Store.com.

I really like Indy Candies gourmet gummies. They actually have some gummy flavors that are safe for the Feingold diet.
