But Drumstick Lollies aren’t unique.
An interesting fact is that the gluten-free status generally applies to most basic, plain old lollipops. It may not apply to lollipops with special fillings like bubblegum (not all gum and bubble are gluten-free).

The same applies to plain, hard candy mints. Most spearmints and peppermints are gluten-free. But, it may not apply to mint-flavored candies.
On the contrary, candies that contain wafers are sure to contain gluten.
Examples include Crunch Bars, Kit Kats, and Crispy M&Ms. The only exception is the candy that has a rice wafer, but such candy is rare.
