I recently found these and Pumpkin seeds made by the same company (SPITZ)...They're available at Costco as well as most major supermarkets. The come in assorted flovour, but best of all the are made in a nut free facility.
Here is a link to their website! http://www.spitz.ca/
Enjoy.

The 2for products made by Spitz are NOT safe. They are produced in a separate facility which does have nuts/peanuts in it.

Personally, I love the plain ones. I tried the flavoured, but as my son says -- I'm just a boring old lady. :wink: I've never seen any with a cup, I just buy them in a bag. The biggest bag I can find.

I've just looked at their web-site and it's not there anymore.

I'm not sure exactly what the 2for is -- I was told it ws not safe, so I never looked for it. I know the seeds were not in the shell. The woman told me that everything pre-shelled was in a plant with either peanuts or nuts. But, all the flavoured ones in the shell were safe. There are a lot more flavours now though.

*********

The reason I had called (long ago) was to find out if the had pre-shelled sunflower seeds because I decided they would be interesting to bake with. I shell my seeds with my teeth -- and I don't think anyone else will want to eat those cookies. :lol:

AnnaMarie,

Have you ever found any plain, shelled sunflower seeds for baking? I have been looking forever without any luck.

No, I haven't. I also spoke with a guy at NoNuts Peabutter to see if the peas they used were good to eat like nuts. He said yes -- but they are not currently planning to expand the business. I understand the decision -- make sure you have one product fully established before spreading yourself to thin.

However, I recall sending an e-mail to a company to find out if they had safe soynuts, both for eating and baking with. I'll have to check, because i never did hear back from them.

I just bought a new DARE product and it has sesame seeds and soynuts in it. Do you think DARE would tell us where they get their sesame seeds from? (I'm only half joking when I ask that.)
