Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and we all have our way of celebrating. From dining at a fancy restaurant, making enough candy-laden cards to fill a school bus or boycotting the ‘hallmark holiday’ all together, we are ALL subjected to a “Sea of Red” at every store. Its BEYOND obnoxious. Not to mention totally Gluten laden.
But what to do if you or Valentine suffer from Celiac Disease, Lactose Intolerance or a very unfortunate (but very real) Chocolate Allergy? You go with one of these festively delicious yet completely Allergy-Free options right here:
EQUAL EXCHANGE: With Chocolates, Coffee, Teas and more…it’s a great place to shop for your vegan sweetheart.
GONATURALLY ORGANIC by Hillside Candy: Covering everything from hard candies to cough suppressants, it’s a score if your Valentine needs a tasty throat remedy.
DESIDERIO CHOCOLATES: You wont find a tastier vegan caramel or marshmallow anywhere else.
SURF SWEETS: If your honey is into all things gummy then look no further than this sweet shop.
AMY’S ORGANIC: Amy’s Organic is a well known and trusted name but who knew they made dream candy bars?
