A maze of chocolate (off the shelf) [WIP draft]

There is definitely this gluten free dairy free egg free nut free plain luxury dark chocolate available at Oliver's. It is pretty heavenly I must say (8/10).

But how about the main stream brands? Which ones could I continue enjoying? This is my quest for the year. I've included links to the official websites.

Sadly Lindt cannot gaurantee their products to be gluten free... Though their "white and extra dark (70% cocoa and above) chocolate products by nature do not contain barley malt". To risk or not to risk.....? ummm

Cadbury have a very detailed description and listing of products showing which is GF, which has trace of gluten (and what does "trace" mean), and which ones we should avoid. Just checked at Wellcome that most Cadbury in HK are made in Australia so the link above is applicable to us =)
- Dairy Milk, Fruit & Nut - no gluten source!! =)
- Honeycomb - sorry, it contains gluten

Jelly Belly
Not chocolate, but Jelly Belly beans are gluten-free, dairy-free, gelatin-free, vegetarian and OU Kosher. =)

[~ this post will continue to be updated ~]

Toblerone - see Kraft Australia - yes most of the products of this brand is GF, except the new honeycomb.

Ferrero Rocher & Kinder
M&Ms - GF (?)
Hershey - N/A.. umm, I dont eat Hershey.

Vita chocolate milk - the ones fresh in the fridge contain gluten. The non-fridge ones do not state clearly... umum

Other sweets
Haagen Dazs Contains gluten only if specified. Hurray!!! =) Example of GF ice-cream include Chocolate, "Vanilla, Coffee, Strawberry, Extraas™ Rocky Road 500 ml and Banana Strawberry Frozen Yogourt Bar."

Delmonte mixed fruit is gluten free =)
Movenpick use gloucose/sugar from wheat

I-scream and XTC are processed in facilities that also process wheat/gluten containing food.
