Wood 145, am I missing something here? What is the problem with pumpkins? My daughter has eaten pumpkin tarts with no problems. Is pa a reason to avoid pumpkin?

Hi Carefulmom,
I think that the references to pumpkin were for the candy corn that is shaped like a pumpkin, not the vegetable. The veg is a squash, and should be fine for PA (we make pumpkin bread all the time.)
Take care,
Andrea

Becca-
My PA son is also egg-allergic. We haven't been able to find any candy corn that is free of both peanuts and eggs, but we'll keep looking. Let me know if you ever find one.

Well, I went to walmart last night and the walmart branded candy corn (great value, or whatever it's called) has a 'may contain' warning on it for peanuts and a few different tree nuts. So much for that. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
If I can't find the blueberry hill brand anywhere else I might hit up some kind soul here who might be able to get some for me. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I am obsessed with this candy corn thing, I guess, because my dd cannot even eat it due to the eggs, I realized, and I keep checking back here! I was looking at the KMART add today, and it looks like the advertized candy corn *might* be Blueberry Hill, just by the picture. It did not specify a brand. I will likely be there tomorrow, and will check. Maybe I will still buy some for dh and I to eat after hours, and support the nut free company. That way, when dd outgrows the egg allergy(positive thinking), it will still be a thriving business, LOL. becca
