We've been trying the new "School Safe" brand wrapped cakes in lunches.

The chocolate chip cookie bars have "dairy-free" splashed on the front of the box BUT the ingredients lists "natural butter flavour". Not wanting to take any chances, we contacted the company. We got a very quick reply:
The Chocolate Chip Bars are still dairy free because the Natural Butter Flavor has the following ingredients (PROPYLENE GLYCOL, WATER, NATURAL FLAVOURS) which are not derived from any dairy source yet are natural and give the buttery flavor to the product.

My son has since tried them and they are delicious! We've also tried the banana loaf and brownies. We travel ALOT (he's an elite baseball player) so often have to pack a weekend of food for a hotel room not equipped to cook a proper meal (restaurants are not an option for him right now, at all), and these snacks are great for on-the-go.

Also nut-free...!

Well that clears it up! We often say that we love the artificial flavour because it's safe...for us.
