I was at Sobey's and was browsing around the baked goods section (always on the lookout for new peanut / nut free products :wink: ) and saw some loaf cakes made by Schaaf Foods Inc. The label made no mention of peanuts or nuts, so I took a chance and brought them home to look into further. They are a family owned and operated business out of Waterloo, Ontario - don't have a website but I was able to find their address and phone number (130 Frobisher Dr Kitchener-Waterloo ON. (519) 747-1655). I gave them a call (fully expecting them to tell me the standard "sorry, we do have nuts on the premises"), but instead I ended up speaking to the owner who stated very emphatically that they do not have any peanuts or nuts in their bakery and he even goes so far as to ban his employees from bringing in peanut butter. He was totally appreciative of my phone call, so very glad to hear that people are reading their product's labels and calling for clarification -- says he gets calls about allergens at least 2 times per week. I felt confident that he "got" the whole allergen thing. Anyway, you can check them out for yourself: they make Lemon, Raspberry, Marble, and Banana loaf cakes as well as a mini cake version. They also have a coffee cake. We tried the Lemon and Raspberry and they were very good.
