Well, it's too late for this Easter but I have heard of this brand of jelly bean from another mom and if I can source it, I might try it.
They are free from 7 of the top allergens (they do contain soy)

I found them at our local (Hull) Wal-Mart ONCE last year, but then never saw them again. Unfortunately my kids don't really like jelly beans...

It's nice to know that their products exist.

I was just at Zellers and on sale was a display of peanut free candy. Ganong Bros - 800g bags of Ju Jubes, Jelly Beans, A.B. Gums and then from the same company a box Soft real fruit Jellies.
Superstore has 'no-name' candies (ju-jubes, a.b. gums and jelly beans). They also all have the peanut free symbol on them BUT they list trace of egg. These Ganong ones don't list anything I see as being a top allergen.

Ganong Bros.
www.ganong.com
I have sent an email to confirm that these products are egg, sesame, gelatin and tree nuts. Oh, I should have asked about milk and soy for those of you avoiding these. I'll send another quick email. = - )[/u]
