I found a candy store here in the US that sells some "safe" candy for your kids, such as Aeros, Kit-Kats, Smarties, etc. The store is in Westport, CT, but she has a web-site and will ship anywhere. The site is [url="http://www.cathyscandies.com."]www.cathyscandies.com.[/url] I found all of these under the British Import section.

I hope this helps! The store is 5 minutes from my house, so if you need more information, please let me know.

I just bought a Kit-Kat recently & noticed it had a "may contain peanuts" warning or maybe it was "manufactured in the same line as peanut products" regardless...it was a warning. Also, I remember reading some posts about Smarties! Are these candies really safe? I'm confused.

I'm bringing this back up top because I finally went in this store today. I tried the Kit Kat Chunky and the Smarties--I don't think I could eat the American versions of these again! OMG--they were so good! And nut-free, of course!
The candy is from Europe, not Canada. I checked all the labels, and they did not have a nut warning on them. She also carries Sixlets.
If you live in the vicinity of Fairfield County, CT, the store is convenient. Otherwise, check out the website and she'll ship anywhere.

And don't forget that you can also order Canadian nut-free chocolates like Kit Kat, Aero, Coffee Crisp, Smarties, etc. from [url="http://www.panhandlepremium.com."]http://www.panhandlepremium.com.[/url] I just placed my first order with them last week and my package came yesterday, and I can also say that I'm not sure I'll ever go back to regular M&M's or Kit Kats. I tried my first Coffee Crisp yesterday and it was like a little bit of heaven!!! Thanks to all you Canadians who brought these products to our attention!

Hi Peyton's Mom,
The confusion is because Kit Kat in the USA is made by Hershey/Reese and it may say "may contain peanuts".
However, the Kit Kat made in Canada and the Kit Kat made in the UK are made by Nestle in nut-free plants so they are safe.
I agree.. my girlfriend tried both the USA Kit Kat and the Canadian Kit Kat Chunky (actually made by Nestle UK) and the Canadian one is much better.. and nut-free too!

We are Canadians living in the US. When our Canadian friends and relatives come to visit they often ask if they can bring anything...we always say, Kit Kats, Crunchies (not sure if there is a warning on Crunchies), Coffee Crisp (yum!) and Smarties for our son. At Christmas time we get the big bags of Smarties in holiday colors and it is so wonderful to put them out in bowls and not worry about our son eating them.
Thank goodness of Nestle Canada!

There is no warning on Cadbury Crunchies. They are made by Cadbury Canada on a nut-free line [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
(note: Nestle Crunch does have a peanut warning)
