40+ Peanut-Free Halloween Candy & Treats

As I've talked about before, Layne has a severe peanut allergy.  Halloween is especially difficult for us. Especially now that she's in school and in activities where she's not under our supervision 100% of the time.  I'm always asked by friends and family for a list of what is generally safe.

The thing with food allergies is that you also have to worry about cross-contamination during manufacturing.  Even though only a few treats actually have peanuts in them, you still have to worry about being manufactured in a facility that also processes peanuts.

Below is a list of Peanut Free and Tree-Nut Free treat ideas.  Believe it or not, there are a ton of options!    Take a look and consider making your Halloween treat bowl peanut-free this year :)


Note:  This list is based on my experience only.  Always double check the packages for ingredients and allergen warnings before giving to an allergic child.
