It's coming..... Anyone seeing any nice new fright night treats that are allergy-friendly?

I know Vadeboncoeur will have a good array; what else are you seeing out there?

Quickly checked for tree nuts and peanuts in the new Hershey box and it looked good! My daughter was very happy.

Halloween is definitely easier now as she knows not to touch anything until we see it and most importantly knows to go to my best friend's house who lives in a quiet street and buys everything nut/peanut free!

Old Dutch potato chips are OK.
The problem is if I buy them now, I'll eat them all. :oops:

There are Mike and Ikes Halloween packages (jelly bean like candy) available at Metro. My kids love these. Maynards have a wide range of treats they like too.

Well, I unearthed a big bag of Gimbals Gourmet Jelly Beans. These will definately go into the bag from the Great Pumpkin!

Alison St. Sure has a WONDERFUL list at Sure Foods Living. It is a US list but many are still found here. She has worked countless hours, even getting kicked out of stores.

Actually, the thanks are to Pam Lee, who did a great job and all the leg/phone/internet work. Pam rocks.

AJsmom - actually asking for everyone else here, not for me specifically. So those look excellent, too.

:)
