What is "Free From"?
At Free2b we know it can be hard to feed your family foods you can trust. Our passion to create delicious and safe foods comes from our personal experiences navigating life with food allergies. We get it. That is why you’ll find all of the Free2b products are made without or “free-from” the 9 most common (or “major”) food allergens (as listed by the FDA,) specifically, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy (milk), eggs, gluten (wheat), soy, crustacean shell- fish, fish, and sesame. In addition, our products are also made without coconut, mustard and corn. Lastly, our products do not contain artificial flavors, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, hydrogenated oils, palm oil or carrageenan.

Why We're "Free From"
In 2008, we received a fateful knock on our door. A father, with a jar of sunflower seed butter in hand, presented us with a challenge: create a candy cup that his peanut-allergic son could enjoy. Our chocolatiers got to work, and soon after, the very first Sun Cups® chocolate treat was born. Today, we continue to be inspired by the story of our that first Sun Cup, as many members of our team manage serious food allergies in their own household. You can count on us. As our company grows, we give you our word: to never compromise, to never cut corners, and to never stop caring.
