Years ago when I started eating gluten and dairy free Easter treats where a no no. As in there were no options.

Now days through online shopping you can take your pick of Easter basket treat ideas.

In this post I specifically want to highlight several allergen friendly brands who tailor to the allergen community. While most of these suggestions are free from the worry of cross contamination not all are.

Always read labels as company’s can change their manufacturing practices or ingredients without notice. You will find I’ve also included brand links for your convince.
