Celebrate Gluten-Free Halloween with Pamela's

(Ukiah, CA--August 2010) Halloween is a particularly tricky time, for gluten-free children. Wheat and other gluten-containing grains are often used as a thickener in candies. While other children are eagerly amassing piles of Halloween treats, gluten-free children are only able to 'look, not eat' or give away their loot.

With a little advanced work, parents and teachers can have their own GF Halloween parties or treats to give eager 'trick or treaters'. Peanut Butter & Chocolate Filled Brownie Cups, Simplebites Cookies, German Chocolate Brownies, Cherry Chip Cookies, cookie Two-Packs, cupcakes of all sorts are on the menu...along with a scary Gingerbread House. This month, Pamela's Products earned the Kid Kritics Seal of Approval; so parents can be assured that their children will enjoy all the delicious gluten-free treats available to them.

Parents can make mini-sized treats and individually wrap them for 'trick or treaters' on Halloween. Remember to put a tag with your name, address and phone number on them, so that people know whom the treats are from. Not into baking? Pamela's Products Simplebites or various cookie Two-Packs are perfectly sized for candy baskets. All the previous recipes and products and many more may be found on Pamela's Products website (

October is Celiac Awareness Month. Celiac Disease affects 1 in 100 Americans. The only treatment is to adhere to a gluten-free diet. Celiac Disease is no longer considered just a gastrointestinal disorder. It is a multi-system, multi-symptom disorder, often without gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. The prevalence and awareness of CD in the United States is growing. The overall prevalence of gluten sensitive disorders is unknown but is possibly 2 to 3 times as high as that of CD. Very little information is available about gluten intolerance, which is not necessarily triggered by the immune system and is therefore not Celiac Disease.

Pamela Giusto-Sorrells, founder of Pamela's Products has appeared on NBC & ABC affiliates nationally, KRON and KTVK. Pamela's Products have been featured on the Today Show, The Doctors, in Gourmet Magazine, Woman's Day, Real Simple and many other outlets.
