Although no one needs an excuse to eat chocolate, for all you chocolate lovers, today is even more acceptable to indulge than the rest! It’s World Chocolate Day, where chocolate is celebrated all over the world for being the prestigious snack and delicious treat that it is.
World Chocolate Day has not been long celebrated, having only been established back in 2009 when it felt overdue and only right to dedicate a day to the firm favourite amongst many. It is said that this day is marked as the anniversary of our beloved chocolate entering Europe, way back in 1550!
Chocolate certainly is the favourite for many, but once again it doesn't always come easy for people suffering with Gluten intolerance or dietary restrictions. Although many chocolate bars are suggested to be gluten free, as they do have any ingredients that include gluten you still must be very careful. Certain chocolate can have traces of gluten due to them being made in the same factories as other products made with gluten. For some, this can be just as dangerous as eating something that purposefully includes gluten, especially for sufferers of Coeliac disease; even tiny traces are detrimental.
So, what chocolate is gluten free?
Here is a list of 7 well known chocolate bars that don’t contain gluten directly (but do always double check the ingredients and allergens):
Fry’s Turkish Delight
Cadbury’s Curly Wurly
Cadbury’s Wispa/ Wispa Gold
Galaxy Smooth Milk
To be honest, the list could be quite long with these only listing a few of the chocolate bars that are identified as gluten free.
With the chocolate bars covered, we like to make sure that there are also plenty of chocolate baked goods for gluten free chocolate lovers to sink their teeth into, as these aren’t quite as easy to come by.
