Christmas Candy
« on: November 26, 2017, 07:45:14 AM »
It’s that time of year again. I thought it might be a good idea to have a current thread about candy we find.

Please include what country you are in. And what country product is manufactured in if you have it.

I tend to like candy canes that are not just normal. This year I found

Hershey’s Candy Canes in chocolate and mint flavour. Sounds yummy to me. They are full size, product of USA though I am in Canada.

No peanuts/nuts, and no may contain, which their website says they do label for.

I need to remember the name of the ribbon candy we’ve  bought. I think I get it at Michael’s.

I bought Bob’s candy canes the other day. They’re our favorite.
Me: Sesame, shellfish, chamomile, sage
DS: Peanuts

It’s Sevigny’s ribbon candy, and it looks like they make the ribbon candy Russell Stover sells (but I do not know that Russell Stover’s is safe).

 We always bought Allan. But they were bought out, I think by Hershey.

Not exactly candy....

Metro sells Campbell’s shortbread which is safe for peanut/treenut allergies.

They always sell out, so stock up.
