Are Charms Blow Pops gluten-free? Yes! Charms Blow Pops are gluten-free, peanut-free, nut-free, and Kosher OU-D. Lollipops are a memorable candy. Shall we take a trip down memory lane?
Lollipop Memory #1: My son’s first haircut – he was not amused, and some major arm flailing was happening. So, the hair stylist gave him a lollipop in an attempt to calm him down. Unfortunately, the lollipop ended up stuck in his hair.
Lollipop Memory #2: Shots. No, not those kind of shots (tequila – oof). When the kids were little, after their shots at the doctor’s office, they were given a lollipop on their (frantic) exit out the door.
Ok, so far lollipops are associated with unpleasant events in my kids’ life. Awesome. But there are happy memories as well…
Lollipop Memory #3: Fast forward to my daughter’s Sweet 16. After falling down the rabbit hole of Pinterest, I decided I MUST create a candy bar at her party. Lollipops were front and center and everyone seemed to have one in their mouths.
SHEESH ENOUGH ABOUT YOUR MEMORIES MAUREEN – TELL ME ABOUT CHARMS LOLLIPOPS BEING GLUTEN-FREE
Getting back to Charms Blow Pops being gluten-free, I researched Tootsie Candy Company (owner of Charms Blow Pop brand). These fun bubble gum pops are covered with a fruit-flavored candy shell. There’s nothing like a Blue Razz lollipop, but if you have a soft spot for the traditional varieties or unique Kiwi Berry Blast, Black Ice, or What-a-Melon, you’re in luck as they’re all gluten-free!
