Hi all, I was browsing through the endless aisles of Easter candy tonight reading labels and came across a few interesting ones.
A pkg of ring pops by Topps were labeled as "May contain traces of milk"....I think I remember reading on here that they were not safe for PA? Maybe their manufacturing changed?

Also many chocolate items by Frankford Candy co. were not labeled with any "May contain" statements. and I KNOW that they label because I bought some Spongebob chocolate coins once by them and they were labeled as "May contain trace amounts of nuts/peanuts."
So I am VERY encouraged! They had a big selection of Spongebob, Dora, Barbie goodies and chocolate bunnies!
I am going to call tomorrow and double check though just to be sure.

Also a lot of their chocolate items were made in canada!

I will let you know what I find out!

we have had ring pops without any problems, aside from the horrid colors they turn dd's tongue!
I am curious about Frankford candies. I think I have seen them around here.
Hershey seems to have a safe bunny out. No warning. becca

This may be old news and I just missed it, but I finally found Sixlets yesterday and they are no longer made by Hershey's. They had a warning on them--I can't remember if it was "facility" or "same equipment." They were Easter colors though so maybe the regular ones would still be OK.
I've been looking for Sixlets since last Easter and haven't been able to find them and now they are not safe anyway. That was a disappointment.

Hi everyone, I talked to Frankford candy today. Here is where it gets tricky.
Some of their licensed products such as barbie, nickeleodeon and such are not up to date with labeling due to they need permission from these companies to change the packaging. SO, I would highly recommend calling and doublechecking before you give anything to your child (esp. from their licensed products.)
But as for the 4 products I asked about specifically today she said they were peanut/nut free and made in a /PN/nut free facility.
They were:
The Spongebob hollow chocolate egg with sour candies inside.
The barbie hollow chocolate bunny with candy necklace inside
The Beatrix potter line of chocolate bunnies
The "Bunny express" train box (foil wrapped mini eggs with bunnies/chicks)labeled with "Brach's" but labeled Made esp. for Frankford Candy and chocolate co. Made in Canada.
Here is their # if you want to call...
The girl I always talked to is Nicole and she is very helpful.

Just placed a call to Frankford at the number you gave, Sebastian. I asked about a foil wrapped egg, with Barbie on the foil. It is a small one(maybe part of a larger package) but labeleed with ingredients that look safe. No warning. I will post back if I hear. becca
