Please note that we have removed two products from the Safe Snack Guide due to a disclosure from the manufacturer.
After a discussion with Lisa Guzzo, Consumer Relations Manager of Just Born Quality Confections, we have decided to delist MIKE AND IKE® and HOT TAMALES® from the Guide.
While these iconic products are manufactured in a facility that does not process peanuts or tree nuts, a small portion of their products are packaged by third-parties that may use equipment that is also used for products containing these allergens. Although the firm’s labeling policy includes voluntarily labeling for potential cross contamination of the “Top 8″ allergens, we have decided to remove their products from the Guide in keeping with our policies. Consumers should address questions or concerns regarding Just Born brands by calling them toll free at 1-888-645-3453 or visiting them online at www.justborn.com.
Enjoy Life Foods, the leader in the Free-From foods category, has announced their first new product line since their Decadent Bars were introduced two years ago.
The new line of ready-to-use mixes and flour require only oil and/or water and a few minutes in the oven to produce delicious results. Consumers will enjoy Pancake/Waffle Mix, Pizza Crust Mix, Brownie Mix, Muffin Mix and All-Purpose Flour varieties.
- Nana Creme – Nana Creme is a Vegan, non-GMO, and Allergen-Friendly Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert (“ice cream”), free of Gluten, Dairy, Nuts, Tree Nuts, Soy, and Eggs and made with REAL ingredients.
- JTM Foods – Founded in 1986, JTM Foods is the largest producer of snack pies in North America, selling over 100 million pies each year. Sold under the JJ’s Bakery brand name, their pies use fresh dough and real fruit fillings made from scratch every day in their Erie PA bakery.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve added a conversation heart product to the Valentine’s Day 2015 Edition of the Safe Snack Guide.
Smarties Love Hearts are marketed free of peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, wheat, and soy by their manufacturer, providing a readily available option to families coping with these food allergies. [NOTE: We earlier made the assertion that these were corn-free which was NOT correct. Our sincere apologies.]
Special thanks to our readers Sarah Albert and Elizabeth Arras for taking the time to suggest this product!
The Valentine’s Day 2015 Edition of the Safe Snack Guide has arrived with an entire section devoted to goodies for that special someone with a peanut, tree nut or egg allergy. It’s also a great resource if you are planning a classroom celebration where children with food allergies will be present. (As always, we stress that the parents should always be the final arbiters of any food given to a child with food allergies!)

We are pleased to announce that Nots! Snacks, makers of a line of vegan sunflower seed snacks, has joined our Manufacturer Partnership.
Nots! Sustenance Snacks are made in a facility that is free of gluten as well as the top 8 allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, soy, wheat, fish and shellfish) and come in a variety of flavors.
We’ve had many requests over the years to accommodate additional allergens in the Safe Snack Guide – like milk, gluten and sesame – but realized that doing so would severely limit the products we could include.
Instead, we created an interactive service called Allergence. Allergence draws upon the data provided via our platform by the responsible companies that have joined our Manufacturer Partnership. These companies are committed to the allergic community and have opted to provide you with much more information than is available on the label.
SnackSafely.com is now previewing Allergence, which promises full transparency into how 11 allergens are processed during the manufacture of each product.
It’s here! The 2014 Halloween Edition of the Safe Snack Guide is hot off the digital press, waiting for you to download your copy.
In addition to the usual goodies, there’s a whole page dedicated to Halloween treats, just in time for trick-or-treat and nut-free classroom celebrations. Again this year, we’re providing size/packaging information and indicating whether the items are individually wrapped.
