Rolos are a popular candy that has been around since the 1930s. They are bite-sized, chocolate-covered caramels that people of all ages enjoy. But when it comes to nuts, do Rolos have them?
Are There Nuts in Rolos candy?
No, Rolos do not contain nuts. The ingredients in Rolos include sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, skim milk, vegetable oil (palm oil, shea oil, sunflower oil, palm kernel oil, and/or safflower oil), hydrogenated vegetable oil (palm kernel oil, soybean oil), chocolate, contains 2% or less of: lactose (milk), salt, lecithin (soy), PGPR, vanillin, artificial flavor, baking soda.
None of these ingredients are nuts or nut-based products. The noted major allergens in this candy are milk and soy.
Be aware that Rolos are produced in a shared facility where other products are made that contain peanuts, tree nuts, and almonds. In other words, there is a potential for these food items to inadvertently be in Rolos, likely in trace amounts.

Furthermore, it’s always important to check the label and ingredients list before consuming food if you have allergies. Ingredients can change at any time and the ingredients on the label will be the most accurate.
Hershey’s, the manufacturer of Rolo, confirms Rolo candies have no peanut or tree nut ingredients in the Facebook response displayed below. While the response is dated, the information still holds true.
Nuts are not an official ingredient in Rolos. However, they are made in a facility that also makes products that contain ingredients that may spark a nut allergy. In other words tree nuts, almonds, and peanuts are in the factory and there is the ability for cross-contamination. If you have a nut allergy, be sure to read the product label since ingredients can change at any time.
