It pains me to type this but I felt that this community needed to see one of Dare's newest products. I get excited whenever I see a new Dare product, because its a company I trust and use very often.

So I was excited when I saw these in Walmart today:

But when I looked at the ingredients which I ALWAYS do before buying a new product, this is what I saw:

Like, WHAT?! I read the ingredients always, but I know for a fact that people trust Dare and would buy the product without even reading...

Why would they do this?! :banghead :verymad

I get what you mean. Still, it's not uncommon for companies to use more than one facility - so at least it's good they've clearly marked on the box.

Thanks for the photo and for letting us all know.

Its hard. I mean, I know a lot of companies do this, but I feel like there are ALOT of people who will just see Dare, and feel safe to eat it/give it to their kids with allergies or family members.

A little bizarre, yes, but at least the label is clear. Just another reminder of why we need to read every label, every time.

A few years ago we were able to buy many Dare products. However now many of the same products have changed ingredients and are no longer safe. I buy very little from Dare now.

Great example of why we need to always read labels and never take it for granted thatsomething is safe.

Thanks for sharing!
