I know this is alittle early, but was looking at easter candy today at the store and everything seems to have "may contain" warnings on them. I am glad that Hershey labels for it, but was wondering is they make anything that is free from contamination. I was only planning on giving her a small bunny, beeps and maybe something small. Any ideas???

Hershey will have pastel kisses that should be free of a warning, and they might have the malted milk eggs(check the lable for warning), but they might be okay too. Maybe a whoppers Easter version? Then there are Starburst Jelly Beans and Just Born(who make peepe) make very good jelly beans(Teeny Beanies).
You can order safe and very excellent quality bunnies and all sorts of chocolate candy from Vermont Nut Free. I do not know of any bunnies you can buy in stores that are safe. I think there is a Canadian brand if you connect with a pal to send you a bunny from Canada.

So far I have noticed that the Frankford candy co. has some spongebob and dora chocolate eggs with sour candies inside that do not have an allergy statement.Also I saw a hersheys bunny with no allergy warning.
Also most willy wonka candies are safe, like easter egg runts...also sweet tarts, Starburst jelly beans, peeps from Just born candies as well as teenie beanies from Just born, tootsie roll products...

I am not familiar with the Frankford Candy Company.

I went to their website and they do not have allergy info or a phone # posted. If anyone has contacted them please let me know.

I noticed that my local supermarket is carrying a plain Hershey solid chocolate Easter bunny. There were no warnings on the label. I thought DD would not be able to have a bunny this year, but now it looks like she might.
I also noticed that they had a Cadbury Dairy Milk bunny that also had no warnings.

We found Hersheys Rolo's in pastel colors for easter that are safe. We broke open the bag this weekend and had a chocolate fix. Everyone is fine!! Good luck.

I did notice that Jolly Rancher jelly beans, which we have used in the past, are now labeled as "may contain" or "manufactured on shared equipment" (can't remember which--doesn't matter to us since we avoid both). DS loves Peeps, and we stocked up on Whoppers malted milk eggs and small Hershey bunnies (saw some packaged individually and others in a four-pack). Picked up a large solid Hershey bunny, but set it aside to double-check even though the label looked good.
Now to stock up on stickers, books and little toys...

Hi SF, I contacted Frankford today and am waiting to hear back.
I have contacted them before concerning a lot of their nickelodeon themed candy..like the spongebob gummy crabby patties and the spongebob candy dispensers, which were safe BTW. And the rep who handles the calls is VERY helpful.
They do label for "may contain", as I have seen their spongebob chocolate coins had a warning.
I will let you know what I find out.

I saw a Cadbury dairy milk bunny at the store today. Had a "distributed by Hershey" label and no warnings. I know anytime I call Hershey I get the same line that they will put a warning if needed.
I just get a little concerend about the stuff they distribute rather than manufacture.
Anybody see, trust or consume these? Thanks, Becca

Hi Becca,
Cadbury is very good with labelling. They sell many Easter products here in Canada and they are always clearly labelled as "may contain peanuts/nuts" if there is any risk. If you do a search on "Cadbury" you'll find some threads where people discuss this company.
What size is the Dairy Milk bunny? Does it say if it is imported from Canada? I just ate a small 4-pack of Dairy Milk bunnies last night (the 4 pack that is 39 grams I think - the size of a regular chocolate bar)
I have no hesitation to eat Cadbury products as I know they label well [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
