pI did a search and found this information in another thread, but thought it was worth bringing up. /p
pMy dd and I were recently at a movie and I noticed that they sold "Kit Kat Bites" at the concession. I assumed that they were "may contain" like the bars, but there was no such warning. She still misses not being able to have the bars which started having the "may contain" on their labeling a couple years ago. So this was great news to her! We also found them at our local grocery store./p

Now I am really confused. I recently bought the snack size 10 pack for an event my non pa daughter attended, and I believe it had the may contain warning. What gives with Hershey's labeling anyway?

The Hershey labelling is fine. All of their Kit Kat products are made in different production environments.
At this time, the Hershey Kit Kat Big Kat, the regular size Kit Kat, and the mini Kit Kat have the "may contain peanuts" label so they are not safe.
However, the "Kit Kat Bites" are made in a peanut-free line so they have no warning on them at the time.
But conditions always change so keep reading the labels each time in case manufacturing conditions change.
And if you are lucky enough to be in Canada, the Nestle Kit Kat products are safe.

Is this Kit Kat bites info for US? I will have to look for them. I have had a conversation with a Hershey rep, and did feel very ressured that they lable well. I just never even thought to check anything but the regular bars, just to be conservative. Oh, and we buy Sixlets. I really hope if Hershey is purchased, even by Nestle, that they keep up their dedicated lines. I am even hoping against hope that it will enable Nestle to expand their Us nut-free offerings, rahter than go the other way. We should hit them hard with requests if the buy Hershey! Becca

Yes, the Kit Kat bites are only available in the USA. (made by Hershey)
In the rest of the world, Kit Kats are made by Nestle (in most cases on peanut/nut free lines).

[img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] I didn't know that Nestle was possibly buying Hershey. Bummer. I have been boycotting Nestle for several years (non-PA related) and would hate to lose hershey since they're the only candy bar, chocolate syrup, strawberry syrup and cocoa powder that I trust. Maybe I should let go of my grudge just a little. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

I was looking at these this morning and thinking about buying a bag when I noticed that two or three of the other kinds of "bites" had almonds or peanut butter in them. Do you think they label for tree nuts too?

I have only been buying the regular large size plain Chocolate Hershey Bars and the regular Hershey plain kisses because they do not have the may contain or made in a facility that processes peanuts warning. Does everyone else feel safe with those two products?

I have safely used the regular bars, but only on rare occasions. I simply do not give my dd much candy, yet, as she eats very little good stuff as it is! I have also used, do use the chips, and told her preschool to use Hershey chips(always rechecking labels...), but think will order Vermont nut-free in the cold weather. I have not used the kisses. The kisses just make me nervous because there are so many kinds and some have nuts. becca
