The great news, Sour Patch Kids are gluten free and there are a few details and sources that will help give you the confidence to snack strong!
While the previews are going, stick with me for just a few minutes so we can discuss!
Are Sour Patch Kids Really Gluten Free?
The short answer is yes! Sour Patch Kids ingredients do not contain and gluten ingredients. So you are safe in that regard. However, we need to keep digging because there is always little more to it.
I found a Nima Sensor post that does help confirm they are gluten free. They tested both the original and watermelon versions. Nima was happy! That’s good news!
It is important to note though, that Sour Patch Kids are not certified gluten free by an independent third party such as my favorite people at Gluten Intolerance Group. Maybe one day they will come around.
So keep this in mind, there is always some risk of cross contamination, but from what I have seen and heard from people, I have not seen any major concerns. Let me know in the comments below if you experienced otherwise!
Which Varieties of Sour Patch Kids are Gluten Free?
From what I can see, all types of Sour Patch Kids are safe to eat. That is great news, because often times you will see line ups with one or two variations that contain wheat ingredients.
Not the case with Sour Patch Kids!
Who Makes Sour Patch Kids?
A lot of gluten filled products to be honest. Most of their line up uses wheat in their products. Just something to keep in mind. They are not focused on gluten free products by any means.
