This one doesn't list ingredients, but from the FAQ page, I believe it might fit your needs ... except availability in your locale. You can order online though.

Chocolove 73% cocoa, organic: www.chocolove.com/organic73.htm
FAQ: www.chocolove.com/faq_ingredients.htm
Ordering online via unafilliated company: www.chocolove.com/buyonline.htm

OR -

here's some other ideas for across the pond, at least for brand names to look for:

(more stuff here: www.alotoforganics.co.uk/cats/diet.php )

From Ireland (you might want to contact them, I couldn't see "gf" bars easily): www.chocolates.ie/

Other companies to look for (maybe): www.kinnerton.com/nutsafety/allergyfree.ht

If you order anything by mail, now's a good time before it gets hot.

If you can't eat corn syrup you can't eat any thing that has corn products in them. That includes corn starch and modified corn products. That will give you the same reaction that you got from the candy bar.

Glutino makes a chocolate bar that has crispy waffers in it. YUM. I believe it's like 150 calories as well.

Very very good emoticon

If you live near a Whole Foods store they have a great selection of GF chocolates you might check.

Buy Italian Chocolate bars at your local health food store. They are gluten free, very yummy and should not bother you at all. I first tried them when our son brought me home some from Italy. I since have found them at our local health food store.I do not remember their name, but they are twice the size of American bars for about the same money. Italy is a country that is right on with gf living. Love their corn pasta!!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life,
his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of
his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotin

Yea I seen choc chips available alright that are GF & DF but I thought seeming as I'm not allergic to dairy I should have more options. I'll check and see if corn syrup is in the goods I have a reaction to cause I just assumed it was soya lecthuim as it's in most chocolate bars and comes from soya which Gluten intolerant people can have a reaction to. I checked dark chocolate in desperation and ALL had soya lecthium but i'll first test your theory re corn syrup!

My throat gets sore any time I have anything with corn syrup in it. I also avoid dairy so I will only eat the good dark chocolate, and specific dairy and gluten free chocolate chips.

I had cadburys dairy milk & had a bit of a reaction and I think I may be allergic to the soya leicthim which unfortunately is in most chocolate bars in the market. When i say I may be allergic my throat was sore after eating it so not 100% positive if it's connected but want to go totally GF for now to see benefits.
