Jelly Belly Jelly Beans

Posted by Dave on March 13, 2010

This looks like good news! I noticed the last few times I was at the store that the packages no longer had the peanut labelling on it.

From their Faq  page:

If I am allergic to peanuts, can I eat Jelly Belly jelly beans?

Packaged Jelly Belly Beans

Please continue to carefully check all ingredient statements on packages and bulk bins for peanut ingredients.  We discontinued Peanut Butter flavor of Jelly Belly beans (this flavor contained peanut butter and peanut flour) however, it is possible this flavor may still be included in packages sold in retail stores.

None of the other flavors of Jelly Belly beans contain peanuts as an ingredient.  We no longer process peanuts in our manufacturing plants.

Scharffen Berger Chocolate

Posted by Dave on July 1, 2008

Q: Is your chocolate nut and dairy free?

A: Our 9.7 ounce Home Baking Bars (99% cacao, 70% cacao and 62% cacao) and our 2Kg chocolate propacks (99% cacao, 82% cacao, 70% cacao, and 62% cacao) are nut and dairy free. We manufacture these chocolates in our Berkeley, CA facility. These items are also kosher and pareve.

While we make the chocolate for all our items, we may use other facilities to mold and wrap them. These facilities may also process both nuts and dairy on the equipment we use, so we cannot guarantee that all of our products are completely nut and dairy free. Our cocoa powder is also packaged in an outside facility. You can check our product labels to determine if there are products for which we cannot guarantee the nut or dairy-free status.
