We stock a large selection of sweets and chocolate therefore we cannot guarantee that our products are free of nuts or nut traces. It is impossible for us to confirm that any sweet is guaranteed 100% free of any traces of nut as most manufacturers produce nuts or sweets containing traces of nuts in the same factory. We request that the customer uses best practise and contacts us before purchasing any products if they have any adverse allergies to any particular ingredients or are unsure so we can inform you of any possibilities. If still unsure, we recommend that you do not purchase our sweets.
