Jolly Time Popcorn


This is the response I received from Jolly Time about 48 hours after I e-mailed them to ask bout their Healthy Pop popcorn. I will put my e-mail to them below it for those of you who would like to see the actual questions I asked to help you interpret their answer.

Thank you for your e-mail. JOLLY TIME Healthy Pop 94% Fat Free Microwave Pop Corn does not contain peanut or peanut products.

However, I would like to point out that our Crispy 'n White and Crispy 'n White Light Microwave Pop Corn products do contain peanut and peanut products, and all of our microwave products are manufactured on the same equipment so there could be the possibility of cross contamination.

The JOLLY TIME product you could serve without hesitation is our kernel pop corn. If you prefer the stovetop method or hot air popper, we are the only national pop corn company that produces both yellow and white pop corn packaged in poly bags and 30 oz. jars.

Thanks for thinking of JOLLY TIME.

And here's my original e-mail to them: My 1 year old daughter has a severe peanut allergy. Even the tiniest amount of peanut protein can be fatal to her if she even touches it. Her aunt and cousins eat your Healthy Pop popcorn all of the time. Could you please let me know if it contains any peanut product, including peanut oil, peanut flour,or peanut butter? This is something that may not be listed in your ingredients, but may still be in your popcorn via the "flavorings." It is very important that I know if there is ANY peanut product in your popcorn or if there is any risk of the Healthy Pop being cross contaminated with a peanut product due to the oil or the popcorn itself being processed on the same line as something that contains a peanut product. Thank you very much for your help. My daughter's life depends on it.

Last year, my dd had a slight reaction to Jolly Time Healthy Pop Corn. That was the only thing I could think of that was new that she had eaten. We were vacationing in Florida, and I bought it. She was covered in a rash all over her body. I gave her benydryl and stopped the popcorn and she was fine after that. I didn't do any checking on the product as I was FL and just stopped using the product.
