Has anyone found any safe candy corn this year?

I can't find Blueberry Hill in my area anymore. I live in upstate NY.

Any help would be appreciated. It's my son's favorite Halloween candy and he is crushed that we haven't found safe ones this year.

Thanks,

Laura

This is Brian with Peanut Free Planet. We have the Blueberry Hill Candy for sale. We searched high and low for peanut free candy corn and only after calling Blueberry Hill did we put it on the website. Thank you for patronizing our little business.

Thank you Brian!! I have recently bought another dozen bags but maybe when we run out you'll still have them and we can order some. I actually had to drive to Kokomo to buy these at the dollar tree, so it won't be any bigger deal to just pick up an order.

Please note that our major customers are Wal Mart, Sam's Club, Walgreens, Albertsons and we manufacture the products for them, but they are being sold in their private label bags. For example, you will find the Candy Corn in Wal Mart under the GV label, but in the back of the bag you will see that it was made by Blueberry Hill Foods.

Some other places where you may find them are listed below:

Family Dollar, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, Big Lots, Marc's, Menards, Eckerd's.

Costco and C & S Wholesale are good sources for East and West coast consumers. This is the email I got from blueberry hill

Is the Blueberry Hill candy corn dairy free?

So, es mom...

Does this mean that Walmart's own brand has safe labeling or does it have a "may contain" or some other type of statement on it?

I haven't checked it out yet this year. I was surprised to see Blueberry Hill manufacturers it.

Thanks,

They are not the only company to make them for walmart. Our walmart's candy corn has a 'may contain' label for peanuts and several types of tree nuts. They used to be safe but they went to a different supplier, apparently. The bag design and size also changed. I have not been able to find blueberry hill at dollar general or big lots. Never even occurred to me to look at Menards. LOL. It's a hardware type store.

eta: the bags we used to get from walmart (the safe ones that were supposedly made by blueberry hill) did not mention blueberry hill anywhere on the bag. They never have. In fact I've never seen manufacturer information on a store brand label.

I've never seen that on any store brand either.

By the way, I bought some Blueberry Hill today at Dollar Tree.

our walmart GV candy corn is not safe. i remember seeing blueberry hill on the bag when it was safe. maybe ill go to dollar store. my son might like it. going to FAAN walk this weekend!!!

That's weird. I obsessively look on store brand items for manufacturer name. Because I'm so reluctant to buy them unless I know who made them. We used to buy the Walmart candy corn on a regular basis-at least 3 or 4 bags at a time almost every week. I check every bag we buy but on those, because they were generic, I checked for manufacturer name and it was never on there. No contact info either. They must use different bags for different areas. I have never once, in my life, seen manufacturer info on a store brand bag. The closest I've seen is on stuff from walmart that actually says it *was not* made by such and such company. My vitamins are that way-it says 'this product is not made by one-a-day' or whatever.
