Haribo – They offer a large selection of gummy candies, including seasonal treats for Easter. Most packages I’ve seen label as being peanut and tree nut free. Plus, I received an email from their customer service team (2/2019) stating that all of their products are peanut and tree nut free, and that they’re made in a peanut-free facility. However, their facilities in Germany handle coconuts. >> Buy Haribo Happy Hoppers Gummi Candy Individually Wrapped for Easter Egg Hunts and Basket Fillers on Amazon now!
Jelly Belly – If the package you’re holding specifically says “Peanut Free” on it, then you can be confident they were manufactured in a peanut-free facility. This is not the case 100% of the time, though, so look for the label on your package. For tree nuts, they currently manufacture almonds and coconut in their facilities, so while there aren’t any tree nuts in the jelly beans themselves, they’re not manufactured in a tree nut free facility. >> Buy a pack of Jelly Belly Easter Spring Mix boxes on Amazon now!
Peeps (Just Born) – According to their allergen statement on their website, they label for any cross contamination risk on the packages of their products. So, if the package you find at the store near you has a label that checks out, you should be safe to enjoy them this Easter! >>Buy the Peeps Sweet Easter Gift Set on Amazon now!
PEZ (PEZ Candies) – PEZ Candy is peanut, tree nut, soy and gluten free! A great option for holidays, since PEZ typically offers seasonal dispensers for Halloween, Easter, Christmas, etc. (allergen information) >>Buy Pez Easter Candy Dispensers on Amazon now!
