I was born on Halloween and love all the tricks and treats that come along with it. This is my first birthday where I realized that all grains, including rice and corn have a form of gluten, and that I have an intolerance to dairy. As you can imagine finding true gluten free treats isn't easy.

Last year before I was educated on gluten, I believed the labels on the bags and would down my bag of "gluten free" Jelly Bellys or box of Junior Mints. Now I understand why I felt so awful beyond the sugar rush!
