Loving GLUTEN FREE Chocolate Boxes: The STREET Guide with Photographs, Allergen Information and Manufacturer Links: Updated April 2017…

With many NEW Chocolate Boxes available in the UK, it is time to update my Ultimate Guide on www.glutenfreePSD.wordpress.com which has been broken down into three separate guides for Chocolate Boxes: key Chocolate Producers Boxes, easily available Street Chocolate Boxes (including Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsburys & Tescos) and Decadent Chocolate Boxes (including Fortnum & Masons, Harrods and Selfridges).

This blog post includes…

  • Chocolate Boxes which are GLUTEN FREE or have NO GLUTEN CONTAINING Ingredients (and no warnings or “may contains”) as at March 2017.
  • Pictures of the items with ingredients shown for selective products (and typed out where it is particularly difficult to read the packaging).
  • Warnings have been highlighted from packaging.
  • The listings includes Chocolate Boxes available on the High Street in the UK: by The Co-Op, Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsburys, Tescos & Waitrose.
  • Some of the Chocolate Boxes are SOYA FREE, EGG FREE, NO ADDED SUGAR and DAIRY FREE.
  • Links have been included: direct to manufacturer’s websites showing their ingredients listings and allergen information (where available).
  • It is accurate at the time of publishing (March 2017) but manufacturers do change their mixes so you should always read the labels before you put anything in your mouth and enjoy! It’s your own responsibility to remain GLUTEN FREE.
  • Revised 03/04/17 with additional 7 NEW Waitrose GLUTEN FREE Chocolate Boxes.
  • If you “Like” my Facebook page you will automatically receive new posts into your Facebook Newsfeed.


Co-Operative: Despite having quite a good selection of Chocolate Boxes on the shelves, The Co-Operative seem to favour stocking other brand names rather than their own ones as I have found only one own-lable Chocolate Box which is GLUTEN FREE:

  • A separate Chocolate Bar blog post was updated in March 2017.
  • No money, samples or freebies have been provided by any of the featured Supermarkets but plenty of Chocolate has been consumed!
  • This information was correct as of March 2017 and all the links (to relevant manufacturer’s pages) where live when this was published.
