My daughter also can eat the Whoppers and Rolos. She just doesn't like them so much. She says the whoppers are too crunchy and the rolos too gooey. I happen to love both so I feel comfortable eating them around her.

Another great Hershey's product are "Sixlets" which are small, round candy covered chocolates, similar to M&M's - both my kids are PA and have never had regular M&Ms, so these are a real treat - again, no cross contamination.

kathy c I got my son sixlets at Halloween, and now I can't find them anywhere! Where are you from? I got them at Target, but now they don't have them. He loved them, and they are great, and I was hoping to send some to Cayley's Mom, since she has sent my son 2 care packages of smarties, but I can't find them! Any ideas? Thanks, amy2

I could find them everywhere at Halloween too! I can find them individually at a little variety store here in Alexandria, and have seen them at Safeway. They are really tough to find, so I try to stock up when I can. Maybe Hersheys would have some info on where to find them.

This was a loooong time ago, but I used to find sixlets at convenience stores-like seven-eleven or circle K.

I don't know where you are but I am in Southern California and my local Albertson's grocery store has them on the candy aisle.

I have never heard of Sixlets before! Are they good?
Yarnwoman, we live in Florida but we also have Albertsons Grocery Stores here. I will look and see if ours carries this candy.
Stay Safe.

We have sixlets in Oklahoma. I used to get them at dollar stores (Bill's Dollar STore or Dollar Generals). We haven't bought any in about 3 months. I will check next time I'm by one of them.

I talked with Hershey- the kisses can be run on commen lines with hugs(TREE NUT) when production demands are ther- like during certain holidays.

I got so excited about trying to find "sixlets" after reading this thread. I found them today at Target, and all I can tell you is: I feel sick!!! I have been gorging on them. It's funny, my daughter didn't seem to get too excited when I showed her the box - but I sure was! One thing I can say is that IMHO they are not as good as either M & Ms or Canadian Smarties. Even so, it's always good to find a safe candy.
