Over the last couple of months I have been having a hard time finding Peabutter at either of the Superstores here in Saskatoon. At first I thought it was because they were renovating but one store is fully renovated and the other is almost complete. Please don't tell me they've discontinued! I have a very sad fiance who has been waiting for peabutter cookies.

I still see it at Sobey's (parent company IGA)
I would just email the 'peabutter people' :D directly, http://www.peabutter.ca/

I used to love the peabutter until that also became banned from our home.

So these guys at the AAIA run/walk yesterday...keep looking! :thumbsup

Yes, we enjoyed it until she reacted to it.

That was the time that I thought my family had been abducted by aliens... Dh gave her the Epipen enroute to hospital face swelled to the point the eyes were shut tight...took 3 days for swelling to completely go down...hospital gave him praise for using the Epipen so when I "calmly" suggested that if it should happen again, he should give the Epipen and call 911, he kept telling me "No, the hospital said I did the right thing." :roll: Can't blame him, no one likes to be the one who gave the allergen and it wasn't his fault as she'd tolerated this product before... oh, I digress...

I've actually never have seen it at sobeys here. Also thank god it still exists...I love it better than peanut butter!
I think ill go in and maybe speak with the store manager on monday, just to let him know
that people buy this product as a reminder. Again both stores here have gone through major
renovations to compete with walmart supercentres that have opened.

And I hope as both your children get older perhaps they will outgrow some of their allergies. I outgrew
my nut allergy, hahah but I hate them so I don't have them. My fiance outgrew
beef, sunflowers (thank god as they are in everything...it is insane), leguims and wheat.
I don't know his mom did it but she still managed to feed him. Reactions are scary but fortunately
he has only had to go to the hospital once since we've been together.

Thanks for your kind words...with every shared wishbone, dandelion puff and birthday candle wish, "I hope you'll out grow an allergy." :thumbsup

Do you have Metro stores where you live? That's the only place I've been able to find it lately. I used to get it at Loblaws/Superstore but they don't carry it any more.

I have also noticed that my local Superstore no longer carries PeaButter. :(
I'm in B.C.

Don't forget folks to ask store managers if you no longer see a product.

Our Sobey's e.g. had stopped carrying Sun-Maid raisins, which don't have soy "may contains" like the others.

When I complained, turned out someone else had too, so the produce manager said he would start ordering again.
And to my delight, there they were the next time. (Course, I bought 6 packages, just to show it was popular. :roll: )

Just though I would let people know about two new products I found at Planet Organic in Edmonton.
One is a new soy nut butter called School Safe Soy Nutbutter, the second is an almond butter by Black Diamond that is labelled as peanut free.

I still haven't been able to find PeaButter. My family members have allergies to soy and tree nuts as well as peanuts so we can't even use the soy or almond butter. :(
