It’s hard to believe that Valentine’s Day is only 25 days away. As a food allergy mom, I have to take extra steps to make sure that my little men have something special during holidays like Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween, etc. Most of this planning involves seeking out safe candies 3-4 weeks before the holiday. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to place an order 1-week before the holiday to find that they are all sold out. Bummer! So I’m writing this to not only remind myself to place my order but to remind you, too. 🙂
Here are some of my favorite places to order allergy-friendly treats:
- Divvies – Chocolate Hearts, Heart Gummies, Crispy Rice Hearts, Cookies & Cupcakes and so much more. Of course my favorite is the Chocolate Dinosaur (Divvisaurus). 🙂 Perfect for any little dinosaur lover!
- Surf Sweets – Organic Fruity Heart Gummies. All candy is is organic and free of the top 10 allergens (dairy/casein, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish, shellfish, sesame and sulfites).
- Peanut Free Planet – If you are only searching for nut-free products then you’ll love Peanut Free Planet. Everything is 100% nut-free. They also carry many products that are free of other allergens. Check out the site, we love Peanut Free Planet.
- Amanda’s Own Confections – I love their chocolate lollipops and chocolate hearts! So adorable and allergy-friendly.
- Gimbal’s Fine Candies – We LOVE LOVE LOVE Gimbal’s jellybeans! They are top 8 allergen free and a staple at our house. They were perfect for potty training and would be a wonderful treat for any holiday. They have lots of other candies – check them out.
- Sensitive Sweets – If you are looking for cookies, cakes, muffins, breads, cupcakes, etc. then you’ll love Sensitive Sweets. They are based in California but ship directly. Check out their Easy Cakes. 🙂 These products are top 8 allergen free.
