Gluten-Free Valentine's Day Candy 2013

Just when you thought you knew exactly what is safe to eat and what is gluten-filled, companies change recipes or even factories and suddenly your favorite GF treat contains gluten. NOT a good thing, especially when you're getting ready to enjoy a sweet from your sweetie. I'm sure you know by now, it's always a good idea to check labels, even if it's something you've eaten a thousand times before. Just for you, I've checked the labels on some popular Valentine candies. (Tough work, but somebody's got to do it!)
