Hi Love My C,
If you are talking about Trebor Allan Swedish fish, I would consider them 100% safe. I have never seen a warning on them. And Trebor Allan would definitely put a warning on them if there was any risk.
It totally depends on which company makes Swedish fish. Trebor Allan Swedish fish are safe.

Thanks, Eric!
The bag says that they are made by Trebor Allan in Canada. I feel much better about giving them to him now. He really likes them! Yeah, adding another candy to his list!

How out of the loop am I? I live in Canada, am married to a Swede, and I've never heard of Swedish Fish! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/confused.gif[/img]

Hi Askosrose,
Swedish fish are available in many stores across Canada. Dominion / A&P grocery stores, Shopper's Drug Mart, etc. hehe
Trebor Allan is really good at labelling. If there is any risk of nut cross-contamination, they will always put the label "may contain traces of peanuts/nuts" on the packaging. They are a division of Cadbury.
hehe... I have no idea why they are called Swedish fish [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks for that information, Erik. I am going to have to look for those, because the name sounds gross, therefore, I must try them! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] I made the mistake of buying our candy already...the 130 pack of Nestl

We use Hershey sixlets ging way back after reading here that alot of people found them safe. I have called Hershey generally and understand they consider themselves very allergy aware. However, I cannot find out if these are made on shared equipment or what. Anybody know?
I trusted Hershey lables, but on the website, was reading about the cany coating process and specialized equipment, and thought about it for awhile. Now I am nervous that the same coating equipment is used for all kinds of things!
Just seemed somewhat relevant here, as opposed to starting a new thread! I did search, but only came up with people saying they are safe, not much more. Anybody know more? becca

Seriously Erik I am renaming you the "candy guru" because you know everything! I never knew that rolos were safe in the U.S. - how cool is that?! I am still seriously nervous about the Hersheys chocolate bar but I guess everyone is eating it and you say it is safe so maybe we will give it a go too! Thanks again for all the info. you provide it is so helpful!

BS312 - THANKS - I'll definitely try making my own chocolate. Have you ever tried adding rice crispies or marshmallows or raisins to the mix (I've had so many failed "experiments", I just thought I'd ask to see if there is any reason why this might not work out!)
