Warning for peanuts on Jolly Rancher pops


Bummer. I almost allowed dd to eat one she got as an early Valentine, and double-checked the label. Maybe it is just the seasona pops for Valentine's, but they clearly stated shared equipment with peanuts(and milk).

I think these are usually not on shared equipment, but be sure to check your labels carefull. It was good that the individual pop was well-labelled, but dd cried. I felt sad for her. becca

Thanks for the heads up. It's rare to get through valentine's day without at least one of those pops.

That change happened recently. I can't remember what candy they added to their line, but that was when they added the warning.

Thank you for the heads up on this. DD's teacher just asked about these lollipops. I told her I would have to check the package.

Good to know that these had a warning!

Grrrrrr - that warning had better not show up on their regular candies!

This is the underwhelming response I got to my inquiry about the Valentine's Day pops, and whether or not this was going to include regular Jolly Rancher's :
