Does this Lutti candy contain hazelnuts?

I can't find any information about this candy, apparently called Noiset'Or. Here's a photo of the wrapper. My son, allergic to walnuts, pecans, and hazelnuts, is having a reaction and I would like to know if this is the culprit. It's the last thing he ate. Thanks for any help recognizing or finding info on this.

Best answer: "Noisette" is French for hazelnut.

Best answer: It is highly likely that it contains hazelnuts: "noisette" means hazelnut, and also means hazelnut chocolate.

Response by poster: Also, he's okay. A dose of Benadryl seems to have alleviated the symptoms.

Now might be a good time to learn the names of these nuts and common recipes including them in some different languages:
Walnut - nuez, noyer, noz, noce, nussbaum, okkernoot, nocino, salad oils, and many Iranian/Persian dishes
Pecan - pretty easy because it usually looks like some variant of pecan, pekan, or pacan. Also look out for hickory and praline.
Hazelnut - noisette, nocciola, avellana, avelã, filbert, frangelico, dacquoise cake or meringue, cob or cobnut
Glad he's ok!
