Heroes (known as “Favourites” in Australia and New Zealand) is a brand of boxed/tinned confectionery produced and distributed by Cadbury.
Cadbury introduced Heroes to the marketplace in 1999 as a response to rival Mars’ “Celebrations“.
According to Cadbury:
Heroes are a mix of miniature bites available in carton and tub formats that are ideal for sharing. Heroes fans love to rummage in the box to find their favourites, including Cadbury Dairy Milk, Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel, Twirl, Wispa, Eclair, Fudge and Creme Egg Twisted.
Let find out if this “mix of miniature bites” is gluten-free.
Are Cadbury Heroes Gluten Free?
The Answer is: YES*
*UPDATE DECEMBER 17, 2019*: Reader Fiona Spencer contacted Cadbury, and the company responded “Cadbury confirmed they [Heroes] are gf if you avoid the dinky decker, as these are manufactured separately”. So according to a direct email conversation with Cadbury, Heroes are gluten free EXCEPT for the Dinky Decker candies!
Thanks Fiona! With this confirmation, we can happily share that you can enjoy Cadbury Heroes this holiday season if you are Coeliac or have a gluten intolerance/allergy. Just be careful to avoid the Dinky Decker chocolates!
