I bought a package of the 'Wheat Flavoured" ones. After reading the ingredients 3 times, I noticed that they contain SARDINE EXTRACT!!! No warning, no words in bold. There are 3 other flavours, pizza, vanilla and honey.

Several days ago my son saw the commercial for these and asked for them. I would've looked but now I can prepare him BEFORE the grocery aisle...Thanks

I recently called Proctor & Gamble about these Styx. I'm not dealing with a fish allergy -- I was worried about sesame seed, in case any flavours had them.

I am editing my post because I don't feel I can trust or recommend this company.

I was told on the phone that none of their products had my allergens in them. However, my son was reading the label and told me that there are sesame seeds in the pizza flavour -- and he's right.

I am really angry about being given incorrect information. I hadn't read it myself, because I wasn't eating them (my son has no food allergies).

I don't buy Pringles because they don't identify their oil (vegetable oil). I refuse to purchase products who are evasive about their ingredients when there is another safe product onthe shelf beside them.

I purchase Lays Stacks for our daughter-we avoid peanut, all tree nuts, dairy, egg, pea and beans. I only buy the plain chips.

I haven't bought the chips in years. But, I want to try the styxx. There is no safer alternative for me with that.
