Although we tried our best to find allergy-friendly eyes of newt, toes of frog, and wools of bat, we’ve scoured the pumpkin patch and found a cauldron full of allergy-friendly treats!
We’re happy to announce the publication of this year’s Halloween Editions of the Safe Snack Guide, our extensive catalogs of allergy-friendly foods relied upon by thousands of schools and tens of thousands of families nationwide to help keep allergens out of the classroom and the home.
The Safe Snack Guide serves those with a variety of dietary restrictions with Peanut & Tree Nut Free, Milk (Dairy) Free, Sesame Free, and Gluten Free editions to help you find products that meet your family’s specific allergen restrictions. And if your family is juggling a number of allergen restrictions, try tailoring your own Custom guide to meet any combination of 11 allergens.
As we do every year, we’ve dedicated a whole section to Halloween-themed candies and chocolates just in time for trick-or-treating and allergy-friendly celebrations at home and school. (Don’t forget to check out the traditional Candy and Chocolate sections for other ideas.)
Each guide is interactive: click any entry with a green symbol to see precisely how that product is manufactured with respect to the 11 allergens we track (peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, soy, wheat, fish, crustacean shellfish, sesame, mustard, and gluten) including shared line/facility information you won’t find on the label or anywhere else, as well as links to the product’s store finder, website, and Amazon page.
