pI am hoping these ARE safe, I bought Hersey's Chocolate Lovers which is a bag of an assortment of Milk Chocolate, Symphony and Dark Chocolate small bars, all individually wrapped. I did NOT see ANY 'may be' warnings on there. Anyone???/p

I have seen on here several times that the only Hersheys bar folks consider safe is the regular size bar. I don't let my son have anything from Hersheys as he is also allergic to almonds and I am just not comfortable with it.

Same here, allergic to tree nuts but their other products DO have those warnings on them and I have looked and looked at this package again and again and today *I* tried one of the milk chocolate ones since I'm not P/A but I am tree nut allergic...

Did you have any reaction? I am sorry I said that I don't let him have anything from Hersheys. I was wrong. I do let him have Sixlets and Twizzlers.

No, I didn't have any reaction. I did however see that they have another bag with a different assortment of these mini bars which contained almonds and there WAS A WARNING ON THOSE BAGS! Hershey's has been real good about those so I am thinking that the ones I purchased that didn't have it ARE safe.
I also see that there is a new Hershey syrup, Dark Chocolate, has anyone tried it?

I was told by hershey's in the past that they don't recommend my pa daughter eat any of the twizzlers. Has that changed?

A recent(past few months) phone call to Hershey gave me a stern lecture,LOL, that they label for any potential contamination with nuts. However it does seem that more occasional items are popping up without labels. Not sure what his means. I use to notice all their stuff had warnings, except the sixlets, regular size bar, silver foil kisses in standard packaging, and some marshmalloy chocolate santa things at Christmas(but I was afraid to let dd have them-I ate them). It would be nice to know if perhaps they dedicated another line or something. Wishful thinking?? becca

I don't know anything about Twizzlers not being safe. There has never been a warning that I am aware of (although it has been awhile since he had them last). He has eaten them numerous times though without problems.

I think it was probably about 2 or 3 years ago when I was told that by hershey. Every other time I've called since then I haven't asked about the twizzlers. I don't know why they wouldn't put a warning on it if it isn't safe, but at the time I'm pretty sure they told me that there was a chocolate twizzler flavor (??) and that was the reason it wasn't safe. Maybe they aren't making that flavor anymore. I'd like to know even though we don't eat twizzlers anyway. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Ewww-chocolate twizzlers! That sounds so gross. I don't recall seeing that flavor at the store. I will pick up a pack of Twizzlers next time I go to the grocery and call Hersheys about them.

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.
HTH,
