Crayola Colored Pencils

A report on Delphi-Avoiding Corn about children's craft items states bad news about Crayola.

After contacting Crayola about possible corn in their products, it was found that the only truely "corn-free" Crayola product is their colored pencils. Their colored pencils do contain soy though.

More Info about Crayola products: Crayola Crayons Review or select Crayola under "labels" at the end of this post.

Crayola told me that their regular (not washable) crayons have corn only in the adhesive on the paper wrapper. The crayons themselves are free of corn, soy and coconut/palm.

We took the wrappers off and washed the crayons well, and my highly corn-allergic daughter seems to do fine with them.

Thanks for the update. I'll add those to the list with the wrapper disclaimer then.
