I recently purchased some christmas extreme pops. One of the ingredients listed is maltose. Does anyone know what this is for sure? Obviously some type of sugar....but i'm concerned that it may be a byproduct of barley. My son has a gluten allergy as well as many others.

Thanks for your time! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I saw these at the store today. Has anyone called the company about these? Are they safe for PA/TNA? Thanks! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Thanx Tamie and yes they are safe kcmom. It says so on their web site and I emailed them just to make sure that nothing had changed. Also, it didn't mention on the site if they were egg or nut free so I asked this as well and they are. They are really beautifully done too! I can't wait to see my son's face light up when he get's them! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

In what types of stores have you seen these pops for sale (i.e. grocery, Walmart/Target, etc...) I would love to put a couple in my son's stocking.
Thanks!

I saw a large quantity of them at Costco. There also seem to be other brands(Rugrats, or are they also extreme?), but all seem to be made in Chine. Maybe all are done by the same comapny. I have also seen them at Michaels craft stores. We are not trying them, simply because we are overflowing woth candy at the moment, but good to know they are safe if we get one at a party or something. becca
