Frito Lay seems to now have excellent labeling practices. They have many snacks that more than adequately meet [i]ANYONE's[/i] junk food quota... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
DARE (Canadian company) also labels [i]extremely well[/i] and has a peanut-free facility. They have exceptionally yummy sandwich cookies in maple.

Keebler also now has excellent labelling practices. I just recently tried the Grasshoppers cookies - they taste just like Girl Scout Thin Mints.
They also have Sandies cookies in the 100 calorie packs that are safe (at least in my area)! I was so excited to find these, because I love shortbread, but the regular size Sandies cookies are not safe here.
Hostess also labels well for peanut x-contamination, but I'm not sure how well they label for tree nut contamination.

My DS brought home a bag of Hostess Blueberry mini muffins from soccer and it had a clear warning that they might contain walnut.

You can call Hostess and ask them which factories are peanut/tn free facilities. There is a product code number that is stamped on each box of treats and the first 2 numbers indicate the factory number. The CSRs at Hostess will be able to tell you the numbers of the safe factories.
We have safely eaten Breyers mint chocolate chip, and Breyers vanilla, whole fat and lower fat. Also Edy's double churned vanilla. Popsicle brand popsicles and Fudgsicles have been fun.Lately we have enjoyed Wonka Nerds, Nerds rope, and Hershey's Kissables.

HoHos are my latest yum yum addiction. But call Hostess first.
Go Tarts are equally as yummy.
Green Giant has veggies in the frozen section, my favorite is Cheesey Rice and Broccoli.
Dum Dum suckers. They have a new one with chocolate chewy stuff in the center. I can eat a whole bag alone!

Hostess cakes now ALL contain soy flour. As you may know, soy protein can cross-react with peanut allergy people. Unfortuantely my kids are allergic to almost ALL legumes, including soy, so bye bye Twinkies and many other snack cakes.
*$#&@! soy flour.

Enteman's has FABULOUS brownie bites. Way better than Hostess anything. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Love the Lay's potato chip multi-packs, especially the "flavor blasted" one.
Goldfish flavors, like pizza and extreme nacho and BBQ.
Quaker has good little mini rice(?corn) cake treats, chocolate drizzle, cinamon, and buttered popcorn.
BTW, I tried a twinkie and hoho a while back. I had just started buying them for dd's snacks at school. Hadn't had one since I was 12. They are nasty! I can't believe I used to love them. They all leave this waxy film on the roof of my mouth. Sorry it that is too much, but I was so excited to get one again, only to find it was NOT what I remembered.

I know that everyone here reads labels for all sorts of allergies. The PP mentioned lime tortilla chips. I love them (name brand). I knew they were safe for DD's PA. I never read them for anything else. After I reacted to them, I read more carefully, and found they contained buttermilk powder. I am lactose intolerant. Never expected dairy in in lime chips!
