Dye Free Candy List

The brightly colored holidays are upon us!! And by that I mean, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas – all the special days that involve loads of red, green, and orange treats and sugary sweets everywhere we go.

For a dye-free family, the thought of it all is enough to send me into a panic. I don’t want you to panic, so I’ve put together a list of dye-free candy that our family enjoys. So, when your little superheroes, ghosts, and princesses bring home their buckets of candy this week, you’ll have a list of what they can keep and what you should keep for yourself throw away. 😉

  1. Thank you for the list. Two of my three grandchildren are synthetic dye free, and I spend a great deal of time reading labels. This list will help so much.


  2. Hostess Cupcakes and Hostess HoHo’s are good options too, especially when Little Debbie Swiss Cake rolls have red dye.
