According to the FAQ section of the Fruittella website:

Fruittella products can contain glucose syrup, which may be derived from a wheat source but in that case it has been confirmed that the gluten amount is below 20mg/kg, being the legally defined maximum threshold for gluten free in EU. Therefore, all Fruittella products are suitable for a gluten-free diet.

Fruittella is, therefore “suitable for a gluten-free diet” however if you are very sensitive to gluten or have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease we would recommend that you avoid Fruittella or consult a health practitioner first because the glucose syrup may still cause a reaction.
