Raising to see if anyone else has safely tried the Easter Robin eggs. There is no warning on the package.

I just checked a bunch of bags of the candy coated eggs, but I forget the precise name,(are those the robbin's eggs?), foiled eggs, and another item(now I forget), all by Hershey for Easter. They all had "manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts/almonds". I live in the Northeast. Not sure if they could be made in different facilities, but thought I would share. becca

I just spoke with Hershey this morning about the Robin Eggs.......my package has no warning. I got the standard answer "if we had any concerns we would put that on the package, we take food allergies very seriously" She would not specifically say it was made in a nut free facility.....she kept repeating the above statement..."if we had any concerns...." So, I guess it is a comfort level issue, I would love to know if anyone has safely tried them. I am not sure I will let my PA son try them because we have so much other safe options and he only needs so much chocolate!!

Correction. The Robin's Eggs are the whopper in an egg shape and candy coated, and I saw some today with no warning. There is another product with candy coating and solid chocolate inside which *has* the warning. Not sure if I would try them, as you said. I get a little nervous about the Hershey statement, but we do use Hershey products. I just stick to a few basics(the cocoa, baking chips, and kisses are a new one for us). becca

Hi Becca,
I think you are fine with Hershey's chocolate. Here in Canada anyway, they have really good labelling - for example:
- manufactured in a facility that uses peanuts
- manufactured on the same equipment that processes peanuts
It sounds like you are feeling a bit unsure about them, but I think they do label very well, so in my opinion I do not have any concerns eating their products.
(if I was in the USA I would eat Hersheys more often, but being in Canada we have lots of Nestle and Cadbury products available, so I only eat Hershey products occasionally).

Hi all, Last year we tried the Hershey's robin eggs (whoppers with color) and ds did fine with them. My cz allows Hershey's if is is not labelled as "made in..." or "made on..." HTH. Kristi

We bought Robin Eggs last year and had no problems with them. Just as long as it says "Manufactured by" with no peanut warning, I feel comfortable with Hershey's products.
Same with their syrup, although I'm very careful because some of them say "Manufactured for", in which case I don't buy those.

I just spoke with Hershey's yesterday regarding "manufactured for" and was told that the same processes and allergen warnings would apply to these products as well. She was very particular in telling me to read the ingredients list as well as looking for an allergy statement.

I did a search for Hershey because I have avoided them for years. I came across a post elsewhere on this board referring to them as being safe, so started hunting to find out about Canada.
Thanks again Erik [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Hi Anna Marie,
Yes.. Hershey Canada is really good at labelling too. Next time you are at Shopper's Drug Mart, check out all the Hershey products. They always use:
manufactured in a facility that uses nuts
manufactured on the same equipnent that processes nuts
They have really detailed nut warnings, soit is easy to know whcih products are nut-free. The regukar Hershey bar does have a nut warning on it in Canada (In the USA there is no warning), but there are some other Hershey products with no warning.
