Spangler Helps Children with Food Allergies and Intolerances Enjoy a Worry-Free Halloween

BRYAN, Ohio, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- For most kids, Halloween is the highlight of the Fall season. But as more and more children are diagnosed with allergies and intolerances to food ingredients like wheat, nuts and dairy, holidays like Halloween can leave many kids feeling left out. Spangler Candy Company is taking the worry out of allergies and inviting kids back in on all the fun.


Spangler Candy always goes the extra mile to make sure its products, which include well-known brands like Dum Dum Pops(R), Saf-T-Pops(R) and Circus Peanuts are free of the most common allergens (wheat/gluten, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish, shellfish, and soy). "We know how difficult birthday parties and holidays like Halloween can be for children with allergies to foods like wheat, nuts and dairy, or with food intolerances, like celiac disease," says Pat Hurley, Quality Assurance Director. "Kids shouldn't have to feel left out of the fun. And parents shouldn't have to worry that their children might eat something that could be very harmful. We want everyone to be able to enjoy Halloween and other special events."

For years, Spangler Candy Company has kept its manufacturing facilities 100% free of gluten, nuts, dairy, eggs and shellfish. "Each year, we require our suppliers to certify that their ingredients meet our allergen standards. We also adhere to very strict manufacturing processes," Mr. Hurley explains. Spangler Candy produces each one of its products on a dedicated line and thoroughly cleans those lines daily. In a final safety check, Spangler Candy has its finished products tested at least twice a year by an independent food lab to ensure that they are free of any traces of unwanted ingredients.

Pat Hurley says, "Peace of mind is a big thing for parents of children with dietary limitations. It's also important to all of us who hand out Halloween candy and want to make sure that what we're giving out is safe. We think that's worth the extra effort."

Dum Dum Pops are available at most local retailers (other Spangler products available at limited retailers). If you are unable to find any Spangler product at a retailer near you, you can order it on our website at

In business since 1906, Spangler Candy's line of quality confections includes Dum Dum Pops(R), Saf-T-Pops(R), Circus Peanuts and Marshmallow Treats, Spangler(R) Candy Canes, and Valentine, Easter, Halloween & Christmas candies. Spangler also manufactures candy under the Dreamworks(R) license.
