I've searched and seen only really old (2+ years) posts on Jello pudding. I'm particularly interested in the powdered kind (friend is planning to make it as part of something for a birthday). I do see that Kozy Shack pre-made cups seem to be a good alternative. Anyone have any updates?

Kozy Shack is a great choice which I would highly recommend.
The jello refrigerated puddings are also a safe choice. I use them quite often too.
As for powdered pudding, I think it is fine if you are PA. However, I know that Jello did make a pistachio pudding powder at one time (they still do) so if you are allergic to pistachios, you may want to stick to the Kozy Shack or refrigerated Kraft/Jello puddings.
(there is no warning on the powder Kraft/Jello puddings)

Canadian specific, my kids take Hunt's pre-made pudding to school. I have never checked with Hunt's about their labeling but I have trusted it. That's where the caution comes in. I have also used Jello pre-made pudding.
As far as instant pudding, I know that I have made both chocolate and butterscotch of the Jello brand and was really disappointed after using three cups of milk or something like that to find that my kids didn't like it!
But again, I have never checked with the manufacturers.
Best wishes! [img][/img]

Has anyone here in the U.S. with almond and peanut allergies used the instant Jell-o chocolate pudding without problems?
Has anyone had a reaction to it?
My son's preschool wants to have a "cooking" snack next week, and they're planning to have the kids make and eat this pudding. I'm wondering how safe it is for him. Right now, I'm thinking that I may let him make it, but then eat Kozy Shack pudding (which I know is safe).

My dd has tried but never finished Jello puddings with no problems. Just seems not too fond of pudding-a texture thing, maybe?
However, we have many times had her participate in, but not eat, the food projects at school(as she also has egg allergy). I find it works very well to have a similar snack available, as you suggest. My dd does not mind and is often relieved to have something she prefers(she is picky).

We've used chocolate and butterscotch Jello puddings before without any kind of reaction. HTH Kristi

I just called about the Jell-o Oreo instant pudding. The girl told me that if there is a chance of cross contamination, it will be stated on the ingredient list. Has anyone ever tried this variety?

We've used the chocolate and banana falvors for PA only child. We've never had a problem.

I'm not certain where I read this (probably here on this board somewhere!), but I believe that the pistachio flavored pudding actually contains little bits of almonds, not pistachios. So Jello's powdered puddings are more likely to be cross-contaminated with almonds than pistachios. I believe Royal also uses almonds in their pudding mixes.
