Peanut-Free Candy And Candies To Avoid

Are you looking for peanut-free candies as a special treat for a child with peanut allergies? Even if you don't have a child with allergies, chances are good that someone in your child's class is allergic to peanuts. Luckily, selecting peanut-free treats to bring the classroom is easier than ever thanks to the growing attention paid to this issue.

Many of your favorite treats may be peanut-free, though you should always read the list of ingredients for the most current information. Peanuts make their way into a surprising array of products. Even if your favorite candy does not contain peanuts, it could be processed in a facility that also handles candy containing nuts.

Some of the most popular soft candies for those trying to avoid peanuts are Jelly Belly jelly beans, Lifesaver Gummies, Sour patch Kids, Skittles, and Mike and Ikes. Haribo Gummi Candies (which includes gummi bears and other popular shapes) are also nut-free. Red Vines and Twizzlers licorice and Dubble Bubble bubblegum are other peanut-free candy options, as are Junior Mints and York Peppermint Patties.

For hard candies, look for Sweet Tarts, Dum Dum lollipops, and Jolly Ranchers. Anything made by Tootsie, including Tootsie Pops and Tootsie Rolls, is peanut, tree nut, and gluten free. Most Wonka candies (including Nerds, Laffy Taffy, Pixie Sticks, Runts, and Fun Dip) are peanut-free, although the Oompas and Wonka Bar candies are not.

Unfortunately, most candy bars are not peanut-free. These include Butterfingers, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, Snickers, and Mr. Goodbar, among others. Many other candy bars are processed in factories that also process peanuts, making them unsafe for those with peanut allergies. These include Kit Kat bars, Nestle crunch, and 100 Grand.

Those looking for peanut-free chocolate candies should search out plain Hershey chocolate bars and Kisses. The regular sized ones are usually peanut-free, although the King size, Minis, and seasonal varieties may be processed on peanut equipment. Whoppers and Rolos are also peanut-free. Other options include Divvies and Vermont Nut Free Chocolates, two popular peanut-free chocolate companies.
