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.

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?

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.

Before buying Jello pudding, read a recent press release about a recall due to pistachio cross-contamination:

As you may recall, Kraft had a recall recently on some of the puddings because of traces of pistachios ending up in some of the non-nut puddings. Incidently, this occurred two weeks after I called them to ask about their powdered pudding mixes. I still don't trust them now.

Was it traces? I had thought it was the wrong flavor, entirely, in the box? There is a difference, in that hopefully, you open it and see the green stuff, or whatever. But it is different than a contamination in a flavor, KWIM? I also might be wrong, imagine!
Not that either error gives me assurance that they are allergy aware enough! But I assume after such an error, things improve with the efforts to correct the error. Recalls are very costly and I am sure addressed by QA. becca

I stopped near the powdered pudding mixes at the grocery store this morning and double-checked about which type of nut is used in the pistachio pudding. In our area, at least, it's Jello pudding that uses pistachios and Royal that uses almonds.

How about the Jell-O Pudding Pops? Does anyone have any info. on them? There wasn't a warning on them and they are relatively low fat so I bought them for DS and he loves them! I would hate to find out they are not safe now.
