Does anyone know if the Halloween Trick or Treat Mini Size candies such as Skittles/Starburst, Nerds, Wonka candies are still safe if they come in the large bags filled only with those candies just mini sizes? We just bought two large bags of nerds - strawberry and grape mini size boxes and one of Skittles and starburst in mini size bags. Hope someone knows. Thank You.

Hi toomanynuts,
Yes... Nerds and Skittles and Starburst are all safe in all sizes. Always check labels in case manufacturing conditions change in the future.
I raised a thread called "Halloween safe candy" to assist you as it has more info in it [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

i love it! so smart on so many different levels and the fact that it's good for your child is just icing on the cake (the one that's not going to be there...haha). [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

A warm welcome, Neptune!
There is a thread running on the main forum right now that deals with this very issue.
As you can see, there are many ways of handling it.
For information on which manufacturers tend to produce safe candy, etc. it is best to check the Manufacturer's forum regularly over the next several weeks as others begin stocking up and calling about holiday items.
Good to see you are learning to plan ahead-- waaaaaaay ahead. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] It is a great management tool.

i usually give out packets of hot chocolate (goes over very well....and different too) and i also re-gift peanut products and may contains that my children recieve in their bags (though i have noticed this was not a popular idea among some folks at pa.com - no big deal - i'll keep doing it anyhow. it gets the stuff out of my house without me having to just throw it away). i buy "replacement" candy and items for my chidlren (not much...just a few of their very, very favorite things to help them get over the trauma of losing all their goodies).

The following are usually safe but check the labels every year:
Milk Duds
Tootsie Rolls
Dum-Dum lollipops

Don't feel bad. I do the exact same thing. I hand out whatever came in my son's bag that's not safe. He knows ahead of time that he won't be able to keep everything.
On the other hand, the candy that I actually buy to hand out is all safe so that my son always gets to eat whatever is left over. The more unsafe treats we hand back out, the more of the safe stuff we still have!
