“Today I was shopping at Target and and in the Halloween section I saw the Teal pumpkins. Not everyone knows what the Teal pumpkin is.
The teal pumpkin lets trick-or-treaters with allergies know that you have stuff for them. This doesn’t only mean nut-free candy.
There are kids out there that can’t even have candy. Little plastic toys are a great option. As a kid with a nut allergy I really encourage everyone to put out the teal pumpkin. Please spread the word! Thanks!!
