13 Gluten Free Easter Supermarket Products 2024

Easter is a time deeply intertwined with the joy of hot cross buns, chocolate, and more chocolate. But for those who must follow a strict gluten free diet, finding the right treats takes a bit more effort.

The good news is most chocolate products are gluten free by ingredient. However, as anyone on a gluten free journey knows, the devil is in the details – or more accurately, in flavourings, additives or new textures where gluten commonly hides.

For the gluten free, or those shopping for them, a handy tip is to remember BROW – barley, rye, oats, and wheat. These are ingredients to steer clear of. And, it goes without saying, but chocolates with cookie bits, biscuit chunks, or wafer centres are off-limits unless they’re clearly labelled gluten free.

Thankfully, the Easter Bunny has the gluten free crowd covered. We’ve put together a list to ease your quest down the supermarket aisle to find the best gluten free Easter treats for 2024. While not a complete list, it’s a hand-picked selection of the standout items we’ve found, all widely available across Australia.

But before we dive into these gluten free treats, it’s important to understand these key terms:

  1. Declared Gluten Free: These treats have undergone testing and meet strict gluten free standards. Manufacturers confidently label them “gluten free,” ensuring you can trust these treats to be safe for those with gluten sensitivities without having to delve into the details of all the ingredients.

  2. Gluten Free by Ingredient: Some treats are inherently gluten free, as their ingredients do not include gluten sources like wheat, barley, or rye. These products may have a ‘may contain’ statement, which indicates the possible, unintended presence of cross-contamination. Keep in mind this ‘may contain’ statements is voluntary, so it’s important to check labels. 

The choice to consume these products depends on your personal comfort level with cross-contamination risk. If you’re uncertain about what’s right for you, consulting a dietitian who specialises in gluten free diets can be invaluable.

The Gluten Free Easter Treat List
