There certainly are no peanuts and no candy in the type of 8 in 1
food that we use as a part of our food mix, and I have not heard of
them in any ferret foods.

They will not be able to digest peanuts readily, and chunks could
cause dangerous blockages. Meanwhile, the sugar would be empty
calories and might worsen things if pancreatic problems, obesity, or
dental illness are present.
