Baskets filled with goodies are a hallmark of the Easter holiday, but for a child who has an allergy or an intolerance, that same basket can also be a danger. One piece of candy they shouldn’t have can lead to an upset stomach or a more serious reaction like hives or even trouble breathing.
However, companies like Amanda’s Own Confections fill the void with delicious chocolate and candy that is made in a dedicated facility free of the top 8 allergens. Last year, our kids’ Easter baskets were filled with goodies from Amanda’s Own Confections, and our kids loved them!
What we liked best is that the chocolate tastes delicious even though it’s free of the top 8 allergens. Maybe because it’s free of fillers, it tastes so good!
Amanda’s Own Confections’ History
Amanda’s Own Confections was started by parents who have a daughter, Amanda, with a life threatening dairy allergy. They didn’t want their daughter to miss out on all the holidays that center around food, particularly chocolate, so they started creating chocolate candies just for her. And then Amanda’s Own Confections was born.
These yummy treats can be enjoyed by anyone, but for parents with children with allergies, they can give their children a treat without concern. Amanda’s Own is tree nut free, dairy free, peanut free, egg free, and gluten free.
Some of Our Favorite Treats
For Easter, we love the solid chocolate bunny that is a delicious blend of chocolate. It’s sweet, but not sickening sweet like some candies can be.
This year we also discovered Sunflower Cups. For anyone who is missing a traditional peanut butter cup, this is a nice alternative. The top is a thick layer of chocolate, and below is a creamy mixture of sunbutter and chocolate. The sunbutter gives the cup a nice nutty texture, which isn’t overwhelming, but subtle, unlike a traditional peanut butter cup.
