with easter comming up and my children looking forward to having a chocolate bunny in there basket,(my daughter is already telling me what the easter bunny will be putting in her basket) im stuck thinking what do i do about the bunny?? every one in the local grocery store has may contain peanuts, does any one know of a company that makes peanut free easter bunnies ???

I'd have to check at the drug store, but if I remember correctly, Hershey makes a peanut-free chocolate bunny available in both Canada & the USA.

As well, Trebor Allan makes numerous peanut-free bunnies which are available in Canada and the USA.

Comet also makes many peanut-free Easter bunnies but their products are only available in Canada (ie: Dollarama, Dominion, etc)

Les Chocolate Vancoeuer of Quebec has peanut-free bunnies.

Hope you can find some! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

We've ordered Easter chocolate from Kellie's Candies. The things we got at Valentine's were yummy and packaged really nicely. I think their website is nutfreecandy.com

I also got the little bunnies from Hershey's. They come in a package or 4-6, I can't remember. They aren't big, but they are perfect for trading for all those candy eggs from egg hunts.

Hershey's makes a solid chocolate bunny that is enough to make all but the most diehard chocoholic absolutely [i]ill[/i] from overconsumption... it must be a half pound. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Haven't checked the label this year... but I plan to.

Why don't you order from Vermont Nut Free Chocolates? I Have done this for Chris and he is just so happy with the candy they make. It is safe and they have bunnies. Chris just finished his Valentines day candy from there. They ship it to you and you just order on line. I have had nothing but great luck with this. Good luck to you cLaire

Corvallis mom...I checked recently, and they are still safe. At least at my store in Chicago.

I love the Vermont Nut free ones, but for my little guy right now, chocolate is chocolate and the Hersheys one will do just fine.

claire--- i realy dont like to order anything on line. i just dont feel confortable doing that. (just backwords that way i guess...) but id did find the cadburry easter bunny , made by hersheys at our grocery store and its safe. and its realy cute! and a good size. now i need to find jelly beans that dont contain traces of peanuts, i dont think this will be as hard. i know not to try jelly belly or brachs... ill try our local store brand. Wegmans is very responsable when it comes to labeling and cross contamanation. my mom told me that she started picking up candy for the kids easter basket and i told her to please dont open anything. that i need to read the lables. even thoe she says she allready did i NEED to. thankfully my mom is just like me and totally understands. i think we will mainly fill there baskets with toys. john realy likes mr. potato head at school, and i think they make a darth vader one. and kristin realy wants a white fluffy easter bunny. so even if they dont get bogged down with chocolate they eill still have nice baskets.

Don't know if there is a Walmart near you, but we go to Walmart and get Gimbal's jelly beans....peanut and tree nut free!
