Two readers report being delighted to find Ange Gardien's allergy-safe Halloween chocolates at DisneyWorld in Orlando last week.

Outstanding! Disney is super about awareness.

It's possible Ange's stuff is at Disneyland (Anaheim), too. If anyone spots them, let us know.

My parents are at Walt Disney World right now - I'll be texting them to find these, as my mum has severe allergies too! What a great find! They always have unique allergy-friendly foods at Walt Disney World. :)

Wow, that is timely.
Maybe they can text you/us a photo if they locate the chocolates.

Heh-heh.

We were at the Hallowe'en Party last Friday at Magic Kingdom in Florida, and I can confirm that my peanut allergic son got his fair share of safe treats at the party.

The candy handed out at the trick-or-treating sites throughout the park is not allergy friendly (we seemed to get lot of Peanut Chews, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, M&Ms (plain and peanut)), but through Guest Services at City Hall, you could pick up a bag of safe treats. When we arrived at City Hall, we were asked what allergens my son had, and the helpful staff person then gathered up a bag of safe treats just for him.

I don't have the candy in front of me, so I can't comment on the brands of candy or all of the allergens that could be accommodated, but I know at least some of the chocolate was peanut, tree nut, dairy and gluten free.

My son definitely felt special - and thought that it was actually a benefit to have a peanut allergy in this case! :lol:

Wow, that's great! My parents may be going to the Hallowe'en party tomorrow so I'll be sure to pass this along too. :)
