My pa son's grandparents purchased some chocolate yesterday. They are like Hershey's kisses, but with mint for the holidays. There is no label about peanuts or shared equipment. Any experiences with Hersheys? Is it safe ? My son loves mint chocolate chip ice cream and we have sworn off it for now so......

I have never actually fed these to my child but, Hersheys will swear everytime you call them that if there is even the slightest chance of contamination there would be a warning on the bag.

I have let A.J. have the full size Hershey bar and the Hershey santa and he has been fine with both.

We buy hershey kisses all the time for Trevor. He hasn't had any problems with them whatsoever. The kisses and the regular sized plain hershey bars is about all we've been able to find for chocolate that is safe.

I trust Hersey's labelling, and if one of their products had no warning label, I would feel comfortable letting my PA daughter eat it. Enjoy!

I agree with Kim on Hershey's. If the label checks out, we use it. becca

Be careful, though. I have been looking for safe chocolate Christmas treats as well and I happened to notice that the Hershey's bag of assorted miniatures does not have any warning on it at all (at least in our stores on the west coast). These bags contain Mr. Goodbar's which have peanuts in them. They do list peanuts in their ingredient list, but there isn't a warning. It's always best to read the ingredient list thoroughly even when there isn't a warning.

I put Mint Hershey Kisses in my son's advent calendar this year - they taste great and have no warning label. Some of Hershey's do - Hugs, I think. My PA son (aged 17) has been eating them with no problem and actually ate about ten the first night, as I bought the calendar and candies late, in mid-December [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I trust Hershey's to label properly.

Hi B's Mom,

I think peanut warnings are only put on products that do not usually contain peanuts. For example, products like Snickers bars, Reeses peanut butter cups, etc never have a peanut warning on them.

It is true that the ingredient list always needs to be read as this is where the peanut info will usually be. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
