In brief: Yes.

According to ingredients listed on the internet hershey's kisses, chocolate and peanut m&m's and lifesavers are gluten free.
Chocolate itself doesn't contain gluten so pure chocolate candy is safe but be careful of chocolate bars e.g. Twix bars contain a biscuit core. Also, most hard candies are made from sugar and corn syrup, so don't contain gluten. Recipes change so always read labels.
