The only jelly bean I'D be scared of are jelly belly's, since they DO make a PB version, mixed in with the other flavours.. I dont know if theres PB in it (I would guess so, though), but they DO taste like PB.

Yes, Jelly Belly peanut butter jelly beans have real peanut in them.. so I don't eat any flavour of Jelly Belly. They have an allergy warning on all of their products.

Just to warn the Canadians, the Kirkland brand jelly beans (made by Jelly Belly) at Costco do not say May Contain Peanuts/Nuts. They say may contain wheat, soy and milk. If you read the ingredients (carefully) you will discover peanuts as one of the flavours with real peanuts.
I almost gave them to my five year old today, from their sample tray. Then I had this strange feeling and checked the ingredients again.

The only safe jelly beans I have seen are by DARE and by STARBURST.

[b]Hi everyone,
I just wanted to correct my previous post. I was at Target and double checked the Starburst jelly beans. They have no warning. It was the Jolly Rancher jelly beans that had a warning. Sorry about the confusion.

Thanks Erik and Colleen.
I had two bags in the closet and neither had a warning, was becoming very frustrated over what I thought was another manufacturer changing their tune! Thanks for the clarification!

We use Just Born (maker of Mike and Ike). Not sure, but I think they are made only around Easter - I get them at Walgreen's

I just found Blueberry Hill brand jelly beans at Walmart. They were hard to find-they don't say "blueberry hill" on the front anywhere! They are in a blue bag that reads "Tiny Jelly Eggs" on the front with a cartoonish Easter bunny. It also says "8 assorted flavors." You have to flip it to the back to see that it is made by Blueberry Hill.
