I just found out my daughter is tree nut allergic as well as peanut allergic. I have given her kisses in the past with no problem. She has never reacted to cross contamination that I know of.
I would like to know if the people who feel kisses are o.k. are tree nut allergic as well as peanut allergic? Why do you feel they are safe/unsafe?
I know that Hershey makes the almond kisses. Therefore, I will probably only buy from Vermont Chocolates now.
I am curious about the kisses because even though my daughter has never had a tree nut, she reacted to all the nuts tested. Her almond scratch test was huge. Could this be due to the kisses?
The allergist was not much help. She just warned me to be extra careful during the holidays. She said nothing about cross contamination. I tried to ask as many questions as I could, but she seemed in a hurry.
I get more information on this site than at the doctor's office. Thanks for all the help.
