Tasted: Goody Good Stuff Summer Peaches
By Gluten-free Sam
Absolutely delicious peachy sweets, with a great texture. These are very moreish, and free from a lot of different allergens as well as being vegetarian, halal and kosher. Great all-round sweets, useful for bribing children of all different dietary requirements.
Goody Good Stuff was founded by a vegetarian who was fed up at having to miss out on her favourite sweets – gummy bears! The company has now developed a range of gelatine-free sweets, which include these soft and squishy summer peaches. All the products are also gluten and lactose free.
These are sweet, delicious and pillowy, with a surprisingly good texture for a gelatine-free sweet. They look great and are rather satisfying to poke and prod. These should be a big hit with children and adults alike, and would be very useful in schools or children’s parties, as they are “free from” just about every allergen.

The full ingredient list: Glucose syrup, sugar, modified starch, gelling agent: carrageenan, acidulant: citric acid, malic acid, acidity regulator: sodium citrates, sodium malates, natural flavour, concentrated dyes (radish, apple, blackcurant, pumpkin, carrot). May contain traces of wheat starch – this has been tested to be below the 20ppm required by a gluten-free diet.
For those concerned about the wheat starch, this is the response I had back from the company when I enquired about it:
“The wheat starch declared is actually a processing aid rather than an ingredient. Wheat starch is used in the moulding of the product in the manufacturing process.
The law states that for a product to be deemed ‘gluten free’ the product must contain no more than 20ppm of gluten (this again is a small amount). Our manufacturer is third party tested for all allergens and as a quality policy the manufacturer will not accept gluten free labelling on any product with more than 3ppm of gluten present. We have regular third party tests on our products for all allergens and we have had a negative on gluten for all results (with limit of detection as 1.6ppm).”
Can you eat it? Free from: gluten, dairy, egg, gelatin, nuts. Vegetarian, vegan, kosher and halal.
