Graeme Curwen I have just come back from the supermarket with 3 different brands of jelly beans for my 13 yr old son with type 1 diabetes. It was a real surprise to find that of all the different food colouring listed on the info panels, the colour 153 is banned in the USA, and the colour 160c is not permitted in Australia. Several others were recommended to avoid by the Hyperactive Children's Support Group; 102, 120, 122, 133. Can anyone recommend a brand of jelly beans that is free from additives of concern? Many thanks Graeme Curwen
