pI live in Tennessee and I myself am Class 5 PA. There is an American candy named "Sixlets" (named for the six different colors of the candy, I think), and they are miniature chocolate balls with a hard candy shell. They are similar to MM's, but are completely safe for those with PA, and quite yummy!!!! If you would like your child to try them, I would be more than happy to send you some. Please either post back in this forum or e-mail me personally and I will get them in the mail to you.br /

I'm raising this thread again, not because it's my place to, but I have a story to go with it!
Another PA parent was sending me something in the mail and she very kindly included two packages of Sixlets, one for each of my children. Obviously, she's American. Well.
I must say that this is the closest thing to M & M's that I have tasted. Smarties are no comparison. Both of my children enjoyed them safely. Also, there is really no need to worry about them being confused with M & M's because they are round ball like.
Now, I found them very sweet but that is what Jesse's teacher (from Kentucky) said she missed about M & M's (she won't eat them in his "peanut free" classroom), that Smarties weren't as sweet as M & M's.
I would actually encourage anyone, either Canadian or in parts of the States where they're not available to sign up in this thread to get Sixlets. They were really good (and this comes from someone that only got ONE), are not confusing, and are safe.

I had called on sixlets a few years ago and I was told that these were not safe candies. Does anyone have a number for these so that I can call and then I can send some out as well(Carolyn, Cayley's mom, you can definately expect some from me if I can find them!).

I live in the USA (in Michigan) and haven't seen sixlets in stores. Can you tell me what stores you have found them in?

Thanks carrie! I'm glad your children enjoyed the Smarties. Amy2 sent some Sixlets to Cayley at Christmas time, and we were all asking her to share - they're very good! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I found sixlets at the corner store in the office building I work in. I heard they can be found at drug stores (CVS) and places like WalMart. The package is similar to M&M (with the crinkle paper at the ends - unlike a regular candy bar) but it is a lot skinner. Also the outside package is see through with colored writing. I almost missed them because they were on the bottom shelf. Since I now know what the package looks like I should be able to locate elsewhere. They were good but I'd personally prefer a M&M, however now that I have a TNA that is definitely out. Good luck!

Sixlets are in every convenience store around me. I would be happy to send some to anyone who can't find them - Can. or USA. They are great for Easter baskets!

So are these made on a dedicated line then...that's why they are totally safe? I have them at my local WINCO...and have been wanting to try them.
Or someone has talked to the company?
