I know there's some old threads (possibly new) about sixlets. I'm having trouble finding it. Is this candy safe? I would like an alternative to M&M's candy. I would love to make the M&M cookies. Need help!

Sixlets used to be safe. The last time I got them I thought they still were. My son almost had them in his mouth when I looked at the label. I can't remember if the label said "manufactured..." or "may contain", but still. DS was pretty scared that he almost ate something unsafe and I think a little bothered that it could change like that. Not to mention he had asked me if they were okay and I said yes. Another reminder for me to read the label EVERY time.

Here is a link to a recent thread about sixlets.

In it, Erik suggests ordering Canadian Smarties, and I think there is a link to an on-line site to order them.

Thanks so much for the input. I was ready to buy some, but I knew that I'd better check it out. I haven't seen the packages,but thought they might be an alternative. I'll check out the link!

Smarties are GOOD! And now they come in vanilla and orange and sundae flavours too [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I found some sixlets in the store that don't have a may contain statement. I tried to call Hersheys to check on this but they are closed for the new year. I'll let you know what they say when I reach them.

Go to [url="http://www.nothinnutty.com."]http://www.nothinnutty.com.[/url] They sell an item call "Brites" that we ordered for the holidays for cookies. My PA daughter loved them and it was the first time she really enjoyed chocolate. They are a bit smaller than the real M&Ms and are quite good!!
Thanks.

Sixlets is no longer made by Hersheys but is mady by Sweetworks. I called the 800 number and was transfered to Quality Control where I had to leave a voice mail. I'll let you know if/when someone calls me back.

Sixlets are safe! They are now manufactured at a company called Oakely in Canada which already complies with the FALCPA act and labels accordingly.

Heather, does this mean for all over the U.S. and Canada? I am in the south. I haven't been able to find sixlets in the store. I saw some at Halloween, but didn't bother to even look since I thought they weren't safe.I guess I could order from Oriental Trading. Thanks for this info and help in this.

Tina, if you order from Oriental Trading, be sure the sixlets(if they prove to be okay anyway) are packaged by the manufacturer and not by Oriental Trading. It just looks like some of their things are packaged from bulk and such. Just a caution! I have always found sixlets at Target, but that was when they were made by Hershey. I have not looked since the change. becca

Thanks becca, I had thought about calling Oriental to check out before ordering. I will also check Target. We don't have a Target in my town, but there's one not too far away. If and when I find them, I will post about it. Thanks again!
