DS will be 13 months at Christmas and I'm starting to think about some treats for his stocking. We're not huge on filling the stockings with treats, but it's nice to find a little something in there. My problem is that with his allergies (milk, egg, peanuts and tree nuts), it's hard to find treats for him. Someone told me I can order from Divvies, but I'm nervous. Has anyone with his allergies (or kids with these allergies) ordered from there? Is there anyone else you recommend for allergy friendly treats?

TIA

This company is good, and Canadian, so no duty/customs issues.

My cousin and I order from Divvies whenever we visit America. Between the two of us, we deal with allergies to tree nuts, peanuts, eggs, and dairy. We like their chocolate and have never had reactions to any of their products. :)

Thank you for the link to Guardian Angel - we haven't tried their chocolates yet. I thought they only sold cakes and bakery items! Hmm... must give them a try!

Other treats: SunRype Fruit Bites, Fruit to Go, Squiggles

I've ordered from Guardian Angel (the link in the 1st reply above) and have had a great experience. Other than the fact that I live out west and shipping is $$$$. The chocolate is delicious! So much so, that I actually ordered a chocolate bunny for my daughter from there this year, and she has no allergies. My ds is ana to milk and tree nuts, and we have had no issues from them. They are also egg free, but you will have to ask about soy.

Oh, I didn't realize about the soy issue! Not sure if their chocolates contain soy or not.

If you have to avoid soy, Divvies would be out of the question as their cookies and chocolates contain soy.

Check out Enjoy Life - their treats are free of all top eight allergens. You can even get their chocolate chips and melt them into your own chocolate moulds.
