LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – While the traditional orange pumpkin during Halloween is immediately synonymous with the holiday and the time honored frenzy of children going door-to-door for candy and treats, a new pumpkin color may become just as notable.
The family that owns Dempsey Bakery in Little Rock knows how important it is to know the ingredients in each and every treat you consume—especially if you have a food allergy. Know what goes into food is mandatory for Paula Dempsey's family.
"[Of] Two of my grandchildren--my granddaughter, Allie, is gluten, dairy, egg, soy, nut," she listed.
Allie is allergic to all of these ingredients, and she confirmed that Halloween is one of the hardest days is celebrate.
"The candy looks really good and lots of people are eating it like on the street, and I'm just like 'No fair,'" she shared.
