The Perfect Jellybean

I have discovered the perfect jellybean - and perhaps the perfect candy company. If you've been reading for a while, you know that Miss M has food allergies, which make it particularly difficult to have commercially-prepared cookies, candy, and baked goods in the house.

She and I went shopping today with one very important item on the list - jellybeans. In our home, they are used as a special treat. We ran out of jellybeans a couple of days ago, and right now we are using them for a little potty training encouragement, so they were, in fact, a very important item on our shopping list.

I find several of my preferred nut-free items at Wal-Mart. I didn't know if I would find 'safe' candy on the shelves today, and I didn't look forward to a 2.5-year-old getting upset about leaving the jellybeans behind if they were not nut-free (she's not old enough to understand yet), but I had to give it a try. I picked up a package of jellybeans fully intending to set it right back on the self, but instead I saw this:

Gimbal's Fine Candies
hit the ball out of the park with this one! Wow! Not only can we give these to Miss M withouut worrying, but she can even take these to school. There are two other children with allergies in her classroom, and these will be safe for them, too! Yay!
