I noticed last night that my local supermarket is carrying a plain Hershey solid chocolate Easter bunny. There were no warnings on the label. I thought DD would not be able to have a bunny this year, but now it looks like she might.

I also notice that they had a Cadbury Dairy Milk bunny that also had no warnings.

I eat both Cadbury Easter products and Hershey Easter products. However, these are from Cadbury Canada and Hershey Canada (although some of the Hershey products are imported from the USA).
If there is no peanut warning on the label, I do trust them [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

My dd has eaten these the past couple of years with no problem. We trust Hershey labeling.

maybe you know the answer to this:
Do you know what [b]"PGPR"[/b] is derived from? Among some other items, it's listed on the [i]Cadbury "Mini Eggs" 1.5 oz package[/i] (description on package: "Solid Milk Chocolate Eggs With a Crisp Sugar Shell")

Our mini eggs in Canada don't list PGPR on the ingredient label.
The reason for that may be that they are made in different facilities. The Canadian mini eggs are made by Cadbury Canada here in Toronto, while the American mini-eggs are made by Hershey USA (I think they are made by them?)
The ingredient listing for Cadbury Canada mini eggs is:
milk chocolate (sugar, milk, cocoa butter, unsweetened chocolate, soya lecithin, naturla and artificial flavour), sugar, gum arabic, artificial flavour, colour (tartrazine)

Interesting. The package I am holding (Mft. by Hershey Foods Corporation, Hershey, PA 17033-0815, U.S.A. Under License from Cadbury Ltd.)
<<<>>>
states:
Ingredients: MILK CHOCOLATE(SUGAR; MILK; COCOA BUTTER; CHOCOLATE; LACTOSE; SOY LECITHIN AND PGPR, EMULSIFIERS; AND ARTIFICIAL AND NATURAL FLAVORS); SUGAR; CONTAINS 2% OR LESS OF: CORNSTARCH; GUM ACACIA; ARTIFICIAL COLORS (YELLOW 5; BLUE 2; RED 40; YELLOW 6 LAKE; AND BLUE 2 LAKE); AND ETHYL VANILLIN, ARITIFICIAL FLAVOR.
side note: are the Cadbury Canada ones all one color?
General Disclaimer: I am not offering advice in any manner or form. (labels and ingredients probably can change without warning or prior notice) This was just [b]the[/b] package I had at the time.

I just found a 6 pack of small Hershey's Easter bunnys w/ no warning on them; I've seen them years past but not paid attention. Has anyone tried these?

Thanks eric. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Doesn't Cadbury Canada list *all* specific food colorings when they are used? (or do they)? (discussing Hershey Canada, Cadbury Canada, Easter Products.....[i]allergies[/i].) Please humor me with just this one last question [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img].

Cadbury Canada just lists it as "artificial colour (tartrazine)". The only artificial colour they listed is tartrazine.
Some companies do list all of the colours, but looks like Cadbury doesn't.
