I heard that some Trebor Allan lollipops are peanut and nut free but I still recommend you contact the company to make sure.

I found this info on the web but it is dated 1999-2000 so you will need to get the company to update its info. Lollipops are not on this list.

Here's the website. It seems to be down but I don't know if that's temporary.

http://www.treborallan.com/

I was able to find some contact info. I don't know how up-to-date it is. Give it a try.

Company Name: TREBOR ALLAN INC.
Phone: (905) 331-1400

Just found that Trebor Allan is a Cadbury company. I don't know if it always was.

Here is some info:

I could only find info on chocolate so now I'm wondering if these lollipops are still being made. Anyone know?

My son also has a nut allergy and I was able to find "College Farm Organic NaturePops" (Previously called FunPops) at my local health food store. As per their packaging, their lollipops do not contain any trans fats, gluten, nuts, soy, or dairy and they only contain non-GMO ingredients. You can call them at 800-367-2441 or visit their website at www.collegefarmorganic.com . If your local health food store doesn't currently carry them, perhaps they'll special order them for you. They are very tasty - my son loves them.

I'm in Canada and have peanut and sesame allergies. Regal is the only company you listed that I am not familiar with. (I thought they were an importer, not a producer - not sure though.) The other three I trust the labeling of in Canada.

Regal Confection Inc.: I believe they are manufacturers as well. Their head office is in Laval, Quebec (just north of Montreal). They are one of Canada's largest distributors of candy.

I found them at my local health food store (it's not a franchise or chain). Depending upon where you live, you should be able to check your local listings for a "health foods" store in your area - they might already carry them or, as I mentioned, special order them for you on request. Good Luck!
