I found Gimbal's Cherry Lovers Fruit Chews at Shoppers Drug Mart yesterday. They are heart shaped jelly bean type of candies. Glimbal's candies are free of peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, gluten, soy, fish, and shell fish. http://www.gimbalscandy.com/cherry-lovers.html

If you are looking for chocolate for Valentine's Day, Sick Kids in Toronto now sells Enjoy Life chocolate bars in their specialty food store. They have an online store as well. We had some of these in the States and they were good! The bars are free of the top allergens.

I found Jelly Belly treats at Winners and I just got through to their costumer service line. Their Cupid corn, petite sour hearts, bunny corn and sour bunnies are all milk, egg and peanut free. Jelly Belly has been peanut free since 2009 and the milk products (chocolates) are produced on a separate line. They do share a common packaging area but there are cleaning protocols in place after milk products are packaged. I just opened the cupid corn and I hope I don't eat it all before my daughter gets into it. It is sooo good.
