Please read, before reading

I am saddened by the comments on this blog that often take a judgmental turn. The information is intended to be just that -- information. You need to make your own decisions for your life and be accountable for your actions. I debated closing the blog, but feel there are many valuable items listed for families struggling with food allergies, especially early on.

If you need further information please contact a doctor. If you need to verify a product's ingredients, please look at current labels and contact the company yourself. Note many posts are several years old. Use your best judgment and do not make up comments to scare people.

Dum Dum Lollipop -- Allergy Free!

I took our daughter to get her hair cut last week.  The stylist asked if she could have a Dum Dum sucker (lollipop) before we left.  I reluctantly said "yes."  I don't want to sound like that mom who doesn't let our child have things.  I told our daughter as we left we would have to check and see if it had food allergies.  She's starting to really understand that (I had another treat at home in mind to replace if need be).

Turns out that Dum Dum Lollipops are made made WITHOUT peanuts, tree nuts, milk, egg, wheat, soy or gluten.  It was a relief.  I loved those as a kid and you wouldn't believe the happy sounds our daughter made licking her "goodie" (as she called it).  Guess we know what we are handing out for Halloween this year!

Here's that Allergen Statement straight from the Spangler Candy website.

Allergen Statement:  This product does not contain peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, wheat, soy, or gluten.  It has been manufactured on dedicated equipment.  There is a trace amount of soy oil in the lubricant that we use in our cooking kettles.  This soy oil has been refined, bleached, and deodorized and all of the proteins have been removed.


  1. Love it when they have such clear allergy information on packaging.

  2. Thanks for picking our Halloween treat as well!

  3. Nice! My daughter loves those! We recently found out that she's allergic to milk/eggs. Not lactose intolerant-allergic :(

  4. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful information.
