|This Valentine's Day "candy bank" from Tootsie Roll Corporation (R) has |
clear allergen labels. Labels like this are becoming easier to find.
I love the convenience and selection I get with online ordering for seasonal candy and nut-free items, but isn't it great when you can just stroll into the supermarket and find what you need? Here is a selection of nut-free (and other free-from) candy selections, cookies and treats for Valentine's Day.
Not all items will be available in all locations, but in general, you will find these items in well-stocked stores:
