  1. Wow, that’s way too many ways to get into trouble there. Such a long list. It’s going to be a long Halloween night trying each one of those.

  2. Thank you so much for this posting. My child was recently diagnosed with a peanut and tree nut allergy. I cringed at the thought of Halloween, but now realize that there is more candy than I thought for her to enjoy!!!!

  3. Please be warned that folks with peanut allergies should be very cautious with Jelly Belly candies because peanut butter and peanut flour are used to make the peanut-flavored ones.

  4. Becca,
    Not any more! Jelly Belly is no longer processing anything with peanuts! Isn’t that great?
    I confirmed this via email:
    “Some packages still on the market will carry an allergy statement ‘made in a plant that processes peanuts and tree nuts’. The company no longer processes peanuts but some packages may remain in retail. It’s best the check the package to be sure.”

  5. Alison,

    A few friends of mine who have peanut allergies said jelly belly has a peanut butter bean in which they use peanut butter and peanut flour. So I would caution those with peanut allergies on the jelly belly beans.

  7. ummm…way to much sour! what bout anything with chocolate? i have found that 3 musketeer bars, butterfingers, Hershey bars, snickers bars and reeses peanut butter cups i believe are all safe? and some others? unless i miss read or have not been fully informed on what ingredients are wheat or contain gluten? anyone? anything? being a chocolate lover!

  8. Great list(s)! Now I can better guide my 4 yr old when “choosing” candy at our neighbors’ doors. Hopefully this year the “can eat” pile will be the larger one when we get home.

    Yvonne, I’ve found that barley malt, any food/corn starch that says “modified” may also have gluten. I only know that Reeses PB cups contain peanuts (of course;-) & soy; Snickers contain egg whites & milk… so if you’re trying to avoid other allergens (besides wheat/gluten) you should skip those.

  9. Thank you for this list! i have been looking for a candy list for a while now, and this is great! i don’t eat eggs, dairy or gluten(due to intolerances) so this perfect. THANK YOU!!

  10. I am in search of Heide licorace drops (from eons ago). Any chance you might have them or know where I can find them?
    Thanks,
    Betty
