Bob's Candy Canes
« on: December 09, 2011, 10:42:13 AM »
Although I ordered some Spangler candy canes from PF Planet., I really wanted some mini  candy canes.  The only ones I have found are Bobs.  So I called this morning and was told that they are made in a Top  8 free facility!

Wow.  That's great.  Though I'm not sure if DD had a reaction to them several years ago or to Aveeno oatmeal bath.  She had head to toe hives and was miserable.  The only thing different that day was having a Bob's candy cane and trying the Aveeno oatmeal bath.  We have not used either product since.

I don't know how long ago it was that Bob's was bought by Farley's/Sather's. They've always seemed to label well.

We buy Allan candy canes.  They have the peanut-free logo

Their products are distributed to both Canada and the USA

I checked out Bob's yesterday. They are are a Sather's product, but they are made in Mexio.  I know that makes a difference to some here.

Anyone in the USA seen Allan candy canes/candies?  Let us know what stores carry their products.  The website says they distribute to some retailers in the USA.

In Canada, i know Walmart and Loblaws both carry their products, and some drug stores as well.

Anyone know/have current info on bob's candy canes?  We couldn't find Spangler CC's for our peppermint ice cream pie.  Not a big deal if not, there are plenty of other choices for DS for dessert.
