Still Catching Up...

I wish I could devote more time to blogging these days, but the best I can do is to post when I can.

Stay tuned...

"Safe" Halloween Candy

The last post got me thinking... what candy can the Dandelion have? Obviously, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Snickers bars are out. We also know that all M & Ms are not safe either. But it made me want to check out some of the more obscure candies that seem to only enter our world at Halloween.

I did a little searching and I found another blogger who has done a lot of label-reading and put together this list of Peanut-Free Candy. **Always recheck product labels before serving!!!**

Additionally, I have read that Sixlets were a good substitute for M&Ms, but for what ever reason they were not on the other list. **Always recheck product labels before serving!!!**

So if you are attending a Halloween party or handing out candy at your house this Halloween, perhaps you can pick one of the candies from these lists? The peanut-allergic kids will thank you :)

York Peppermint patties are also peanut free and they have some Halloween themed ones out now that are shaped like pumpkins and have an orange center. The Mini Hersey bars are made in a plant with Almonds, but there mini bags of kisses were ok last year. Will have to recheck that this year.

Luke doesn't even want to go trick-or-treating this year. So I might get off easy this year.

Now if only we got more that one trick or treater... sigh.
