Canada? US? or other?

I do eat Tootsie Roll Suckers, but they probably wouldn't rate as *normal* would they?

Kerr's make "normal" suckers that are peanut/nut free (last time we called). Green ones too!

I picked up the Kerr's at Wal-Mart. They came in a plastic bag and were on the lowest shelf in the candy aisle -- where all the chocolate/gum/candy lives. :)

I saw the Kerrs lollipops today at Wal-Mart. They contained caramel and I didn't see a 1-800 number so I don't know if it is sugar derived or milk derived (one of our allergies) so I'll pass for now but yes, they did have green ones.

Lifesavers website is not very user friendly unless you want to play computer games.
I did find a 1-800 number eventually, 1-800-WRIGLEY

Here is the info for Kerrs:

Kerr Brothers Ltd.
956 Islington Avenue
Etobicoke ON M8Z 4P6
Phone: 416-252-7341

We have been buying their lollipops for 2 years now and my kids love them. It was such a relief to find safe ones.

I was also going to suggest Lifesavers (Lime) or Jolly Rancher (Green Apple) suckers. I have heard both are peanut-free and I e-mailed to double check but haven’t heard back from either one yet. This is a good time of year to stock up!
