6. Flying Saucers

One of Britain’s most classic sweets, the flying saucer! When we pop them in our mouths we are instantly transported back to our childhood.

Made with edible rice paper, the exterior is coloured but has no flavour and the inside is a small amount of sherbet that has a sweet taste and explodes on your tongue, exciting your taste buds.

7. Millions

Tiny, little balls of sweetness! We love to pour handfuls in our mouth at a time and chew away to enjoy all the fruity or flavoured juices!

You get lots of different flavours including Cola, Strawberry, Apple, Blackcurrant and they are all gluten-free. They are tiny but grab a big handful and you will be more than satisfied. 

8. Barratt Milk Bottles

The original Milk Bottle sweets, chewy but creamy milk sweet with a dusting coated on the outside. They are gluten-free and one of my personal favourite sweets.

Barratt’s Milk Teeth and Strawberry Milkshakes are also gluten-free.

9. Mentos

The yummiest brand of minty chews if you ask me. Mentos have a hard outside but the inside is soft and chewy. They are a staple in most UK supermarkets and vending machines.

All of the below options are completely GF:

  • 3 Fruit Chewing Gum
  • Gum (except spearmint)
  • Mentos Fruit
  • Mint Chews
  • Mint Crumbles
  • Nowmints
  • Choco caramel

10. Percy Pigs

The Marks & Spencer staple – Percy Pigs are gluten-free! Every time I pop into M&S, I have to grab a bag, it would be rude not to, they call out to me! Made with real fruit juice and no artificial flavourings, oh and they are shaped like little piggy faces!

Warning: these are very moreish, and great shared with friends and family.
