Jelly Belly does use PB. I asked [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I grew up in a very rural area. I had no allergies, except to sunlight laundry detergent (hives). We had cats and a dog. When I was about 19, I developed an allergy to cats after I left home, and returned for a visit.
No allergies after that. Until, I had children. I also lived with a heavy smoker for a few years (he quit smoking), and moved to a town where the mill caused a lot of pollution. Plus there's a lot of highly allergenic trees in my area. Now I have a ton of allergies. It sucks.
So ya, I also agree that the amount of junk that you are exposed to likely raises your sensitivity.

Re Jelly Bellies
Jelly Bellies made from peanut butter are made in the same room and on the same line as the other JB's. I have toured their facility. All JB's cure in the same room.
Avoid them. Do not even have JB's that are just one flavor, as they may be contaminated. I took the tour once, and had to leave it due to the peanut odor in one area.
