Teal Pumpkins for Food Allergy Awareness

Did you know a teal pumpkin outside your home lets trick-or-treaters know that you have treats that are food allergy-friendly? Food allergies affect one in every thirteenth children, and on average send a child to the hospital every three minutes. Here at Reasor’s we are proud to offer teal pumpkins for purchase at all of our locations during the Halloween season, while supplies last. Placing a teal pumpkin outside your home implies you have non-candy treats, and/or treats free from the top eight food allergens which include: wheat, dairy, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish, and shellfish.

Are you uncertain about which treats are free from the top eight allergens? Our Registered Dietitians have created a list of treats that are free from the top eight allergens for your peace of mind.
