There's Shea Oil in them, right? As I posted in another thread, and not as advice, but my cubs eat them without incident that I'm aware of. Individual Mileage May Vary.

Oldest (11) tests positive for a number of tree nuts and positive for peanuts. Has had anaphylaxis to almonds, peanuts, and lentils. Younger son (7) has been tested for peanuts and that was positive. No anaphylactic reactions thus far.

Glad you posted this...I was a little worried about the Kissables thing, but after reading this, went back and looked at Milk Duds (which he eats fine) and there it is, shea oil...hadn't even noticed it.
So, not advice for others, just saying we'll probably continue on w/ the kissables and the milk duds.

We eat Milk Duds, too. We haven't had a problem here. We just ate some this afternoon. They were the snack size from Halloween.

Thanks. I hadn't noticed the change in formulation. I just checked a package we have here and it does have shea listed among the vegetable oils. DD's safe chocolate list is getting shorter.
