Enjoying GLUTEN FREE Chocolate Boxes for Father’s Day 2017…

With Father’s Day coming up in the UK (on Sunday 18th June 2017), it was time to review what Chocolate Box options where out there and are GLUTEN FREE. Previously, I have looked at the Chocolate Box world through three lenses: (Key Chocolate Producers Boxes (such as Amedie, Benedicks, Booja Booja, Cadburys, Elizabeth Shaw, Magnum, Nestle and Willies Cacoe) , Easily available High Street Chocolate Boxes (including Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsburys & Tescos) and Decadent Chocolate Boxes (including Fortnum & Masons, Harrods and Selfridges).

I have been very disappointed that many are ignoring Father’s Day with no special packaging, more manly colours and promotional offers just for this special celebrations. I guess many of us do not give our Dad Chocolate Boxes s so maybe this year you will (so you can enjoy them as well…)

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Other GLUTEN FREE Chocolate Boxes are available (but check the labels for the Ingredients and any warnings the Manufacturers place on them).
  • A separate Chocolate Bar blog post was updated in March 2017.
  • Many UK Supermarkets offer their own-label Chocolate Bars, some of which are GLUTEN FREE but read the labels. (For example: M&S produce a monthly GF listing and provide specific information for Coeliacs).
  • No money, samples or freebies have been provided by any of the featured Manufacturers.
  • This information was correct as of June 2017 and all the links (to relevant manufacturer’s pages) where live when this was published.

If you are a member of Coeliac UK, they produce a comprehensive directory which covers over 16,000 food and drink items (including GLUTEN FREE Chocolate Bars). This is available in a paper-based Manual and online FREE to members of Coeliac UK.
