I saw these with the organic foods at my IGA last time I was there. It says on the box that it's made in a dedicated bakery and avoids the top 10 allergens.. Anyone try these products (I saw cookies and snack bars)? They are expensive, but if they are good, it's worth it..

Yup, I've tried quite a few of their things. Cookies are OK, the granola was pretty awful (although I think they've changed it since I tried it) and the only things we buy are chocolate chips, which are great, and their Choco loco cereal bars, which the kids like.

When my peanut allergic daughter was in middle school her teacher tried to be supportive by giving her Choco Loco bars when she had treats for other students. We appreciated the effort and turn around as this same teacher had been giving out Reeses Peanut Butter cups when there was a peanut allergic student in the class. Unfortunately my daughter did not enjoy the Choco Loco although we appreciated the thought.

I'm still trying to find their wonderful free-from trail mix in Toronto - somebody gave me an Oakville Shoppers last time I asked, but I just don't get out that far. If anyone sees in the 416 boundaries, do let me know. Thanks..

Gwen,

I asked our Real Canadian Superstore to carry it, as they had the cookies/bars/cereal already in the "health food" section. They did bring it in for me, but lately they havn't had any--maybe it's backordered. I'm sure any store that carries Enjoy Life should be able to get it.

Thanks, our Shoppers has a few Enjoy Life prods. I'll try finding a manager and asking.
Maybe next time I'm waiting and waiting for a prescription. :popcorn
