I haven't been to the store yet but was wondering what everyone would be buying for Halloween this year?

I just received my Halloween shipment from Vermont Nut Free last week. These are really the only chocolates that I let my son eat. Will probably also give him some Dum Dum suckers and perhaps make him some carmel popcorn.
I'm really trying to take the focus for holidays off of food, at least within our family. Our support group is planning a Halloween party for those who don't want to trick or treat.

DS wants the new Scooby Doo movie so I think that will be the bulk of his Halloween treat. I will add some candy - probably Aero bar, dum dums, tootsie stuff. He aslo wants some chocolate covered pretzels which I will probably get from Kellie's candies. Not much more, though and I think what he does get, I will spread out to cover safe treats for school and trick or treating.

Hershey kisses.
Marshmallow Peeps from Just Born; they are made in a peanut free factory. My most recent contact with them confirming this was only a few months ago. Here is what they have for Halloween:

I too contacted Just Born about Peeps a few weeks ago and they confirmed that the peanut chews were still made in a seperate facility and at this time there was not indication that it would be changing so they are still safe!!! YEAH! My PA daughter LOVES THEM! We use skittles, nerds, hershey products that are not labled may contain or have actual nut ingredients, vermont nut free, and tootsie
