Q: What is used to create the purple color for these? Is it an extract from Brassica plants (cabbage family)? I know that purple and red cabbage are often used to create purple in naturally colored foods, unfortunately we are allergic to them and can't eat them. Thank you

Q: Is the Titanium Dioxide just used to "frost" the bat image, or is it incorporated into the entire lollipop? Also, does Strawberry Hill ever make these without Titanium Dioxide? Thanks!

Q: My son is allergic to corn and its derivatives. Can you tell me what the grape flavoring and vegetable colors are made from? Also interested in the answer to the same question for the pumpkin lollipops. Thank you

A: Hi Julianne, We apologize for the delay. We were waiting to hear back from the manufacturer. This is what they said: "The Grape Bat and Organic Jack-o-Lantern so not contain corn-derived ingredients. The carrier for the grape flavor is sunflower oil. The color for the bat is from both vegetable (purple carrot, purple cabbage) and fruits (elderberry, blackberry).
We hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
