Don’t have time to bake cakes in the shape of a pilgrims hat this year for your child’s whole classroom? Just in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday, and to save you some baking time, Gimbal’s candy (www.gimbalscandy.com), a kosher, allergen-free, food allergy friendly candy company created in 1898 (114 years!) by the Gimbal family has announced a Harvest Mix. The flavors are fantastic and include roasted marshmallow, harvest spice, peach cobbler, goblin punch, red delicious, harvest berry and pumpkin pie.
We’ve always loved and trusted Gimbal’s since our food allergy child was young. A few years ago, when our child grew out of her corn allergy, Gimbal’s candy helped us to explain what peanut butter and licorice tasted like without ever ingesting either. Neither of those flavors contain actual allergens – just flavorings. (And I need to note that neither flavors are in the Harvest Mix.)
As an added benefit, there is no high fructose corn syrup in Gimball’s sweet little beans, and they’re made with real fruit juice, are peanut free, tree nut free, dairy free, egg free, gluten free, trans fat free, gelatin free and soy free. Loved by food allergy moms everywhere – and especially this Brooklyn Allergy Mom. I especially love the roasted marshmallow flavor.
You’ll be happy to know that you can pick up a bag of this sweet delicious Gimbal’s candy at your local CVS store. So, at a loss for what to bring that is allergen-free for your child’s class party this year? Wonder no more.
*disclosure, Gimbal’s reached out to me and sent me two free bags of their delicious candies.
