I was wondering if anyone knew of a good list of candy for people with PA that I could give to my son's teacher and she could send home with the kids? I will be at the party whenever it is. I am just trying to plan ahead.

Check out the thread about Kissables under Main Discussion. They have shea oil in the Valentine's version.
Shea is a tree nut, but that is often debated. Read the thread and then you can decide if shea oil is safe for your son (this has only showed up on the Valentine's Kissables packaged).

Just saw in Food Lion a box "Valentine Kit" that has cards and Dum-dums- it says on the box this does not contain peanuts, treenuts, Gluten? etc. and is processed in a separate facility from these items. Great labeling!

Check the labeling on the Dum Dums, I was checking the candy canes on the Spangler website last month and came upon the FAQ section. Someone asked about milk and nut products and it said the GUM Pops and Dum Dum Variety Packs are manufactured in a facility where peanuts and milk are used in the manufacturing of other products. The Variety Packs are a new larger filled pop in a 3-color bag and not mixed with the Original Pops.

From the Spangler website:
Q: My child is allergic to milk and nut products. What products do NOT contain these ingredients?
A: Dum Dum Pops, Saf-T-Pops, Swirl Saf-T-Pops, Marshmallow Treats, Candy Canes, Cane Classics, and Dum Dum Canes do not contain milk and nut products (see note below regarding Dum Dum Gum Pops and Dum Dum Chewy Pops Variety Packs).
The ingredients in these products, as well as the processing aids (such as release lubricants), do not contain any tree nuts, peanuts, peanut by-products, eggs, milk, or dairy products. These products are processed on dedicated lines.
Dum Dum Gum Pops and Dum Dum Chewy Pops Variety Packs are manufactured in a facility where peanuts and milk are used in the manufacturing of other products. Dum Dum Chewy Pops Variety Packs are a new item of small and larger filled pops (chocolatey chewy filling, sour chewy filling, and gum filling). These filled pops are in a 3-color bag and are not mixed with our Original Dum Dum Pops.
