Consult a kashrus organization's pesach guide for guidance and a list. Some of the guides in the wiki may have lists.

KAJ also has a pretty thorough list, though I can't attach it as it's a PDF. PM me your email address if you want it.

R' Blumenkrantz's book has a list of ingredients that are okay/not so you can check each thing even if you don't find it on a list.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I have a feeling that many will not go back to going away.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Fantastic, I am rethinking the “need” to always go away for Yom Tov.. there are maalos and chisronos both ways.

There is nothing like making your own Seder.
