I thought we could make a list of safe halloween candy. I know it is still only September but I love Halloween!

Tootsie Rolls
Tootsie Pops
Dum Dums
Saf-T-Pops
Jolly Ranchers (some of the suckers have peanut warning.
Smarties (like sweet tarts)
Sweet Tarts
Mike n Ikes
Blo pops
Peeps (pumpkins)
Kissables (if no shea listed)
Nerds
Hersheys (regular size) Do they make any special ones for Halloween like the Christmas and Easter ones?
Candy Corn (my friend found Blueberry Hills at Big Lots)

Just a few that I can think of right now! Can anyone add more?

I saw in the Halloween candy section today at Hannaford a package of gummy-type fruit things made by Florida's natural.
The said on the front of the package "gluten free", "nut-free", "dairy free", among many other things. They were in about a package of 25 packets for $4.99, citrus flavored. Another nice option.

On the Dum Dums note you want to make sure they are the original ones...there were some last year (and I saw them again this year ...maybe Target?) that are made in Brazil with chewy centers and have a "nut warning" on them...Dum Dum's previously also advised me NOT to use those.

How do you feel about Willy Wonka brands (division of Hershey's)?

Hershey's makes a ghost shape chocolate bar this year in purple wrapping that is safe. I bought a few already. No warnings.

Willy Wonka I think their nerds are safe and I don't remember which other candy is safe. Anyone else use Willy Wonka?

Also, found mini halloween fruit roll ups and the charlie brown fruit snacks.
Now or Laters (did say something about egg)
Sugar Daddy
Sugar babies (Both of these said could come in contact with egg)

I called Hershey's, that is not true. There
are some new kisses out for Halloween that are candy corn flavor, *thise* have shea, the regular chocolate ones do not.
I'd like to know where to find the Hershey ghosts too - I buy the santas and bunnies every year, have never seen the ghosts! I looked in K0Mart and target which is where I usually find the others but didn't see them.

Is the Willy Wonka company a Hershey's or Nestle. I thought they were nestle, but I could be wrong.

They are Nestle. I noticed this when reading the bags of trick or treat candies.

I'm probably just echoing a lot of these, but this is what I would use:
Tootsie rolls. CHEAP (a bag for a buck at $Tree) - yummy, chocolatey and GOOD.
Hershey Stix - Do people still eat these? Last I knew they were safe. I haven't checked lately.
Dum Dums (I use the ones with the chocolate chewy center, they say on the back that they have none of listed allergens, that proves that they're serious, imo!)
Dots - are these safe? I thought they were!
Starbursts

I found them at our local Giant supermarket in a display box. I am in southeast Pennsylvania. They seem to be sold individually and are about 4 inches tall. They are similar to the Santa ones sold at Christmas in the 6 pack.

Peeps has something new this years - bags of individually wrapped Spooky Peeps. They are very cute! I've seen them all over, K-Mart, Target, and grocery stores.
Also saw bags of little, individual York peppermint patties, shaped like pumpkins with orange filling.

FYI--[b]Hershey Jolly Rancher Creepy Pops[/b] are mislabeled.
The bag does not have any may contain info on it, but the individual posps say:
Quote:Allergy Information: Manufactured on same equipment that processes peanuts/milk
I am in the US, and I know of at least one person in Canada who has seem the same thing. I've called Hersheys, and they were apologetic and grateful I called to let them know.
I'll make a post specific to this warning.

What do folks think about Hershey's Kit Kats? They say peanuts are in the same facility but says nothing about them being on the same equipment.

We don't use Kit Kats either. If a company uses any type of warning label we don't use it. FAAN just had an interesting arcticle in a newsletter not long ago that warned people against thinking if the label read "Made in same facilty as..." it was safer than if it read "Made on the same equipment as...". The research showed that was not true. The point was to listen to the warnings.

What about Rolos? DO you consider those safe for a PA/TNA? They do not have any kind of warning on them.

Hershey's makes Rolos, right? I personally trust Hershey's labeling. I call them often about their products and am always happy with their responses. We use many Hershey products. Just my opinion...

I trust Hershey's labeling, and they have no warnings on the label. Ds has eaten Rolos for years.
