Halloween Intel #7: Nut-Free Cookies, Cupcakes, Sweets Galore at Walmart

While cupcakes seem very mainstream to adults, in elementary school there is somewhat of an “enduring love affair with cupcakes!” Cupcakes stand out for their red-carpet glamour and infinite flavor and color combinations. Yet if you have Tree-Nut or Peanut allergies most cupcakes are out of bounds — as appealing those food colorings may be to the eyes of a 2nd Grader at the Halloween, Fall, Christmas, or Valentine’s Day class party, they cannot indulge.

Thankfully, we spotted this entire display at our local Walmart! Need a last-minute Halloween Party treat? Preparing for a Fall Festival? Grab some festive cookies, cupcakes, and other treats that are Peanut-Free, Tree-Nut Free, and made in a Nut-Free Facility today! They even have large packs that you could sign-up to bring in for a class party!

They’ve got frosted green and orange sugar cookies, orange and white vanilla cupcakes, green and white confetti cupcakes, cat and pumpkin sugar cookies, pumpkin cookie sandwiches, frosted red, orange, and yellow sugar cookies, green and orange vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, large sprinkled pumpkin sugar cookies, and artistic individually wrapped Halloween sugar cookies.

Head to your local Walmart and grab your favorites today!

Chocolate Mice, Cauliflower Skulls, and Strawberry Ghosts!!

A night of Jack-O-Lanterns, ghoulish displays of ghosts and goblins, black cats and witches on broomsticks, are hallmarks of Halloween! The excitement in kids as they countdown to wearing their creative costumes, and trick-or-treating is palpable for weeks leading up to Halloween.

Unknown to most, however, for a child with food allergies there is much trepidation. Milk, peanuts, tree-nuts, and more in candy/party treats impose a threat.

Be your own agent and surveil every piece of candy!!

Below is a collage of allergy-safe halloween treats, some sweet, some savory, and some positively disgusting! These will be sure to spice up your party and keep everyone safe!

Those of us affected by food allergies are a TEAM! Add yourself to this great resource from FARE:  www.foodallergy.org/teal-pumpkin-project/fever-map#.WBDSzJMrLcF

It’s a crowd-sourced map for the Teal Pumpkin Project, which allows you to add your home and show that you are handing out allergy-safe candy to your trick-or-treaters. You can also find out which homes near you have registered, and be sure to stop at them!

That’s not all. Here are some past FAL Halloween Posts:

Teal Pumpkins for Halloween

For all my candy lovers! Do you find yourself not being able to eat half the candy you collect while Trick-Or-Treating? Look for Teal Pumpkins in your neighborhood! FARE launched a new program in 2014 – they are encouraging families to put out Teal Pumpkins if they have non-food treats to offer!

If you offer these treats yourself put out a pumpkin to alert the other allergic-kids in the neighborhood! Thanks for your support!

Allergy-Safe Halloween Treats!

Hey Everyone! I’m so excited by the wonderful response I received about my last post. I’m thrilled so many of you are planning to do a Teal Pumpkin for Halloween this year!

For some inspiration, I thought I’d share some ideas on Allergy-Safe treats you could offer. For one, Dum-dum lollipops are free of the Top 7 Allergens – so those might be a good idea to keep around! In terms of non-food treats, packs of pencils, puzzles, party favors, nail polishes, books, small stuffed animals – all things you can find at your local dollar store!

I like to think in terms of what I might put in a goody bag – those treats are usually inexpensive but still super fun!
Enjoy!

HALLOWEEN COOKIES

I’m so excited for Halloween! (As you can tell by all my Halloween themed posts🙂 )

These NUT FREE Halloween cookies are SO delicious and only have Wheat and Egg as major allergens!! They are wonderful for any event from costume parties to snacking while watching a scary movie! Enjoy🙂
