Gluten Free Candy/snacks:

As we venture into uncharted waters with Luke's gluten sensitivity, I occassionally stumble onto resources and lists that I think I may want to hold onto...the following is such a list. Remember, you MUST ALWAYS read labels, as ingredients tend to change over time....Luke really loves EnviroKidz Cereal Bars (berry) and so does everyone else here! Fortunately even our local grocery carries them. Since the following list is dairy free as well, there are other gluten free choices that are not listed!
