I've never had this and want to try it. I just got off the phone with Hershey, concerning a different product, the woman said if you don't see it, it's alright to eat it. I don't see a warning on the cookies and cream bar but am leary of course. Has anyone pa/tna had it before?

My dd (pa/tna) eats these with no problem. Note that she has only reacted to walnut ingestion and had a positive SPT for peanut and other nuts.

This is one of my PA son's favorites. We get it mailed to us overseas every chance possible!

Hershey's is one of those companies that labels extremely well, and also has advisory labeling as part of their policy.
Next time you are out, wander around the candy aisle and pick up different Hershey bars and flavored Kisses and things.
Level 1: If there are any type of tree nut or peanut in the product, it's directly in the ingredient label. Some of the products list it also after as "Contains peanuts" or "Contains almonds"
Level 2: If there's a strong chance there are traces or they are reusing chocolate from peanutty/nutty varieties, it's usually the last ingredient on the label (example: Coconut Kisses, Peanut is last in the ingredients)
Level 3: May contain peanuts/may contain traces of peanuts/tree nuts/almonds
Level 4: Made on the same equipment as peanuts/treenuts/almonds
Level 5: Made in the same facility as peanuts/treenuts/almonds
Level 6: nothing listed, which means it's none of the above, which means it's safe

Thanks everyone, everything just seems to freak me out before I've tried it, which is normal, I guess.
See the embarassing thing is, I work in a gas station (that's the embarassing part), so I'm constantly wandering the candy isle reading all labels, ughh. So many dissapointments.

I just wanted to say thanks for posting on this product. I took my ds to the store and he was sad because the frosted animal cookies now have the warning and I was able to say hey I heard about a new safe product and go get this candy for him. It was a nice for both of us. Thanks to all on this site for sharing.

OT, but: MommyMegan--There is not a thing embarrassing about working an honest job to provide for your family. [b]Not one thing.[/b] It is honorable and worthy of respect. Don't ever feel the need to apologize for it again. [img][/img]
Not OT: DS adores these candy bars and asks for them every time we go to CVS. The fact that they're so plentiful allows me to say, "Not today, sweetie! You don't need it." (I do give in every once in a while, but with good, safe stuff like this in abundance, I don't feel the need to cave so often. [img][/img] )
