Gluten Free Cadbury’s UK

Cadbury’s chocolate is everywhere in the UK. It comes in egg form at Easter, selection boxes at Christmas and simply as it is all year round. Dairymilk…Twirl…Fudge…Crunchie…Curly Wurly..Chomp…Flake… and the list could go on and on. In my opinion Cadbury’s chocolate is one of the best out there. I don’t think there are many chocolate bars here in the States which measure up to a nice cold Twirl straight from the fridge.

But which of these chocolate bars are safe for coeliacs? According to the Cadbury UK website a whole bunch of their products are gluten free. In their Products section you can search by dietary requirements to find out which products are safe for you to eat. One of these buttons is ‘Gluten Absent’ You can also search by multiple requirements if you’re looking for something that is for example both gluten and nut free.

Twirl, Crunchie, Fudge, Curly Wurly, Flake, Wispa, Turkish Delight, Chomp, Buttons. Coeliacs can still enjoy these and many more. Yay! Many of the Cadbury’s easter eggs and Christmas goodies are also on this list. Yay for gluten free chocolate form Cadbury!

Here is a list of gluten-absent Cadbury products in the UK as of December 2012:

If you’re looking for the gluten free status of Cadbury’s chocolate manufactured in the United States, check out my Hershey’s post as they are responsible for Cadbury’s chocolate on this side of the pond. I don’t think they do much more than creme eggs and mini eggs though. In many big cities in the States you will find stores which import Cadbury’s chocolate from the UK which for a Scot living in the US is great news. I can find many of my old favourites and I can also feel safe knowing these are gluten free and safe for me to eat!

San Francisco seems to import quite a lot of Cadbury’s in from the UK to sell in specialist candy or British stores so now I know which bars to look out for :)

  • Yep, Twirls are definitely one of the best Chocolate Bars in the world. Long may they stay Gluten Free!

  • Hi there, are these products 100./: gluten free

  • Wilson,

    Cadbury’s deem these products to be gluten-free. They also appear in section 2 of the Coeliac UK Food and Drink directory which “lists foods made without gluten-containing ingredients and with controls in place to minimise the risk of cross contamination with gluten-containing ingredients.”

    I don’t have issues eating Cadbury’s gluten-free products and most coeliacs I know don’t either but it’s up to you to decide whether you feel comfortable eating them. I hope this helps! :)

  • Beware that just recently, Cadbury made in Australia is no longer considered gluten free. In the ingredients it now states that it may contain wheat. :(

  • Hi. I’m from the UK and I recently bought a cadbury dairy milk bar after reading the back and cadbury website and became really sick covered in blotches and also joint aches dizzy had to go bed very earlier. It says on the back these are gluten free but they are prepared in a factory which prepares wheat and nuts so my chocolate got contaminated I would not suggest eating any if you are coeliac and will never fall for this again and after writing to cadbury all they can respond is that there are warnings in place on all bars of not fully guarantee that they can not be contaminated and take no fault. Unless you wish to be seriously ill off 4 cubes of choc I wouldn’t bother.

  • Hi I’m from the UK I recentley bought a cadburry dairy milk bar after reading the back and cadbury website and came realy sick covered in bloches and also joint aches dizzy had to go bed very earlier its says on the back these are gluten free but they are prepared in a factory which prepares wheat and nuts so my chocolate got contaminated I would not suggest eating any if you are coeliac and will never fall for this againa and after writting to cadbury all they can respond is where there are warning in place on all bar of not fully guarante wheat free that they can be contaminated and take no fault, unless you wish to be seriously ill off 4 cubes of choc I wouldn’t bother.

  • Hi, I’m in the UK and just checked boxes of Milk Tray and Heroes with a barcode scanning app that checks for allergens etc. It’s alerting as there being two sources of gluten in both – in the glucose syrup and emulsifier E442.

    Another chocolate (non-Cadbury) product containing glucose syrup is scanning safely. I’m confused. It may be an error in the app but I’m now wondering whether there are different ingredients in glucose syrup. The reason I scanned them is because my tum started deafening me when the first choc landed!

  • i am becoming so confused by the mis-information being given by these chocolate manufacturers that i am seriously thinking of not eating chocolate anymore. lets face it, if the wheat gluten doesn’t get you then the sugar content, additives, e-numbers and other ingredients will. may just cut it out of my diet completely and reduce the chances of getting ill again
