Yes, plain ones are safe.  Chocolate covered peeps are not safe.  There was another new one that is not safe also but I can't think of it off the top of my head. 

I trust their labeling.

I'm sorry I should have clarified...plain peeps are safe for PA/TNA.  The chocolate covered peeps are unsafe for PA/TNA. 
I saw the other new one which was a rice krispie peep bunny sort of thing that also read safe for PA/TNA.

Jessma...what allergies are you dealing with?

For the record, I think they are unspeakably nasty as well.


However, the plain (er-- neon) peeps are safe for PA/TNA and egg allergies.

Also the ones that are on a stick with multiple peeps are not safe (last I checked).

My kids adore peeps (I only like the random ones that are really stale months later, think it fits into my Chef Boyardee obsession).  But I refuse to put them on a safe list because of all the different variities - I have brought them in myself but don't allow others to purchase for them.

DS2 - peanuts

Any updates?  The cross-contact warnings seem arbitrary in 2017.  Would like to know about the Birthday Cake Peeps.  Yes, I know these are not in any way, shape, or form, anything close to what one might consider a food.  So, is the edible spray-painted sponge safe for PN?
