when it comes to peanut allergy: nothing changes and everything changes
"None of the other flavors of Jelly Belly beans contain peanuts as an ingredient. We no longer process peanuts in our manufacturing plants."
Yay this is really exciting! We buy some now from peanut free planet online and they are good, but they are expensive and just don't compare to jelly bellys. My baby loves beans so I'm excited he'll be able to experience the really good ones. Thanks for keeping us updated!
Liz - isn't it great?!? I'm just gonna keep checking those packages until I find the new ones without the warning - I haven't seen any yet but I'm sure it won't be long. Hopefully in time for Easter :)
We've relied on Gimbal's for allergen-free, many-flavored jelly beans. I think they're just as good and we've found them at Walgreen's drug store in our area.http://www.gimbalscandy.com/
I'm going to have to look for those Gimbals jelly beans - I've seen a few folks online talk about them!I think the reason I'm so happy is that a major candy company has made a change like this - it's pretty big!
I saw that tweet so I called the company. Sure enough they have dedicated machine. One note though, they still have some old inventory to go through so don't just pick up the bag and go, read the label because some are from the old batch and not the new, nut-free batch. FYI I posted this and more info on my conversation w/the Jelly Belly rep on my blog:http://vickysickies.blogspot.com/2010/02/belly-important-news-about-jelly-belly.htmlThanita
This is such great news! I saw you post when you wrote it but I just now took the time to read it. I haven't looked at Jelly Bellys in a long time because I knew them as unsafe. You bet I'm going to be checking them out now. Thanks for passing this on.
