pI just spoke with a representative at Hersheys regarding the products, he stated that if thier packaging doesn't state peanuts in it or a may contain peanuts then there isn't. He said they have an Allergy Task Team that stays on top of everythingbr /
Can anyone shed some support to this or not? I am desperate to find some sort of chocolate that is safe to have in our house.???/p

I have given plain Hershey's chocolate bars and plain Hershey's kisses to my daughter who is allergic to peanuts and have never had a problem. Hope this helps.

I am comfortable eating Hershey's products when I read their labels. With the bite sized items, I make sure I read the package label or I don't eat it.
I have heard that they occasionally make holiday specialties which could be cross contaminated, so I don't eat their holiday kisses, etc.

My PA daughter takes dance with the daughter of a woman who worked as a Hershey's Rep. As soon as Rebecca was diagnosed she told me, rather proudly, about the different machines and separate lines. She was very knowledgeable for someone who wasn't daily in the factory. It's been a few years and Hershey's is one of the only chocolates still on our YES list.

My PA son eats the Hershey Bars and Kisses (of course we always read the package first to make sure there is not a cross-contamination warning) and we have never had a reaction to it. I feel safe about Hersheys labeling.

I too have faith in Hershey products. We have used their syrup for years with no problems. They even make Easter bunnies!

I just called about Sixlets too yesterday. She gave me the same information. I was going to buy kisses and then didnt because the Easter kisses had the warning. I just dont feel like a 2 year old can tell the difference between safe and unsafe!

Has anyone used the Hershey's chocolate milk in the single servings container that comes in the vending machines? I would think that if the chocolate syrup and cocoa are safe, the this item would be too. Does anyone have experience with the single serving chocolate milk by Hershey?

My daughter has had that choc. milk with no problem. We actually buy it in the big half-gallon size. She also eats plain Kisses and the Plain choc. bars. Another of her favorites is the Cookies 'N Cream bars and for Easter, the cookies 'n cream little eggs. Hope this helps!
