Just got an e-mail from Tootsie Roll. They are still processing with no peanuts/nuts.
They have a large selection of products (even chocolate).

Kstreeter,
I have always given my son tootsie rolls. He has never had a reaction from them. He has eaten the original and also the flavored ones.
best wishes,

Hi Kstreeter! I would like to know why you are still not comfortable giving them to your kids. Are you not confortable with ALL Tootsie products, or just certain ones?
When I called yesterday, they informed me that they do not use any nut products at all and I feel safe with them, but have not given to my child yet.
I am concerned about their chocolate products: Junior Mints, Andes candies, Charleston Chew, just because they are chocolate. However, they assured me these products are nut free, so this is just my own hesitation...

I checked our stash of Halloween Candy and didn't see any "May Contains" or any questionable ingredients in their products.
My son has never ate a Tootsie product because for some reason I thought they weren't safe. I thought I read a warning on their product maybe 2 or 3 years ago and that's why I have never allowed him to eat any tootsie rolls or pops.
It's good to know that they are safe now.

We use lots of tootsie roll products. They also make cella chocolate covered cherries and fluffy stuff cotton candy, which are nut free. I have some charleston chews but I'll call again about them because in the ingredient list it says "vegetable protein" but doesn't say which vegetable. I'm about 99.99% sure it's not peanut though, or they would put that on there.
