Tootsie Rolls are Safe

Last weekend someone at church gave Tyler a bag loaded with goodies. Naturally some of that included food. Before my husband allowed him to go through it, he let me inspect everything. The contents consisted of cookies and Tootsie Rolls.

The cookies were labeled for cross contamination so they quickly came out of the bag. The Tootsie Rolls, however, were not anything I had given him before. Even though most websites don't list allergy information, I checked anyway. I was so happy I did. Here is what it states:

All Tootsie products are gluten-, peanut-, and nut product-free. Tootsie does not use wheat, barley, rye, oats, triticale, spelt, or any of their components, either as ingredients or as part of the manufacturing process.

Corn and soy products are used during the manufacturing process.

Yeah!! A new candy option!!

Isn't that great? Tootsie rolls are a Halloween staple for us, and so are their other Tootsie cousins Junior Mints, Junior Caramels and Dots. My boys could not believe all those candies are "safe"!

Those big Tootsie Roll multi-packs are a staple for us. . .complete with lollipops, flavored Tootsie's and Dots. That's Savannah's "chocolate". LOL Thanks for double confirming that they are safe. . .I always second guess things.

My 22 month old son is also allergic to peanuts, and usually lollipops are always the go to for us, for parties and such. I decided to check out several major chocolate companies and was also happy to find out that all tootsie products are peanut free, except the cella cherries (as in chistmas time chocolate covered cherries) did not have peanut free listed. If you go to, theres a product list. Wonka however, it says look at product packaging or call 1800 358 1971 8-8 m-f eastern time.
