Ce De Candy Co. Ltd.
150 Harry Walker Pky N
Newmarket, ON L3Y 7B2
Phone: 905-853-7171
FAX: 905-853-7160

They are a large manufacturer and importer of candy. (The makers of "Rockets" candy - see: http://www.allergicliving.com/forum/vie ... php?t=1546 )
You can find their candy at any time of the year, but especially during the seasonal holidays.
At this time they do not manufacture anything with peanuts or tree nuts. (I asked about other allergens as well but now I'm not sure if she thought I was asking specifically about their "Rockets", so I don't want to say definitively). They also verify with their raw material suppliers and there isn't any concern of cross-contam. at that level either.
All Ce De Candy is distributed in Canada by Regal Confections BUT be clear when you read labelling as Regal Confections distributes candy from many other manufacturers as well. Make sure you read "Ce De Candy Co. Ltd." on the labelling for the above to apply.

Here's a head's up about the Rocket's 3 lb. Super Assortment, which I've seen at Independent and Wal-Mart. It contains six types of candies: rockets rolls, lollipops, candy money, fizzy hearts, necklaces and rings. The first four are made at the Newmarket plant and are peanut free. The necklaces and rings are made in China. The person I spoke with at CeDe said the China plant is supposed to be nut free........ Use your discretion.

If you choose to screen these out of your trick-or-treaters' loot at Halloween here's what to look for: the Candy Ring (12 g) and the Candy Necklace (20 g) each have a Rockets logo on the packaging and say CeDe Candy Company Ltd.

Just got off the phone with Shirley -- confirmed all of the above to still be the case.
As well, rings and necklaces in the 3lb Assortment Bags for Hallowe'en are still manufactured in China (despite the bag's labelling that reads "Made in Canada") -- they have documentation from China that states that plant where they are made is peanut and nut free but wants consumers to decide for themselves. (Especially with all of the food related issues coming out of China lately...).
She added they cannot state they are "peanut or nut free" because they do not restrict what their employees bring in for lunch, etc. but employees are educated about cross-contamination and allergens, and they have good manufacturing policies in place.
