I did a double take yesterday in the food store b/c I saw a huge peanut free sign on a box of cereal bars made by PC. It said on the box that they have other peanut free foods coming out and to watch for them. I really like their products and I'm hoping that they'll have more options for families who have to stay away from peanuts. :) Just an FYI.

Wow - that is good news. Very nice to have additional choices.

I will keep my eyes peeled...

I found the new bars and I was getting excited as I read the label because I didn't see any milk warning but ... then I came across the egg ingredient. Why do they need to put eggs in it? It was almost safe for us.

My DS1 (peanut allergy) doesn't like the new PC breakfast bars lol. At least he now has the choice of PC brand or the Kellogg's brand. It's a little step in the right direction for the food manufacturers! :)

Rats - I was just going to ask that question when I saw your post, Kate.

The people who make the Enjoy Life bars manage to not put the top 9 allergens in their bars, so I agree, WHY DO THEY HAVE TO PUT IN EGGS??? (Or DAIRY in most of the other stuff??)

Sigh.

This is great news -- I'm anxious to see what other foods they plan to bring out as "peanut free".
Unfortunately my son is not a fan of the breakfast bar either...

Are they nut free also? Or just peanut free?

I just noticed these today as well... however, I only had to read a few of the ingredients to discover sunflower oil is used, so they are not good for us... however, I just found Kellogg's Raisin Bran bars, and we can eat them!!! Yahoo!!! Our kids love them. I bought 1 box at Superstore, and they were great, then I bought another box at Walmart, and they tasted the same but were really crumbly - not sure why?? There is no egg in the Raisin Bran bars, so check them out too!

President's Choice now has "peanut free" (made in a peanut and nut free facility) granola bars as well -- many varieties. Saw them at "no frills". They do still make some that have peanut/nut warnings (just as Quaker does) - so be careful.

Hi

I also saw the "chocolate coated" granola bars from Presidents Choise, with the peanut free label on it.

This a real big treat for my kids and good to carry in your bag when no other safe dessert/treat is available.

I love having choises!!

I'm not sure how useful this info will be for people, but I know that the NoName brand icecream sandwiches and popsicles (including creamsicles!) no longer say "May contain traces of peanuts and or other nuts" as they have in the past.

I've been eating them, and even though I'm not much of a desert person (a severe peanut allergy really kills a sweet tooth...), I've been happy for their existence.

Though I suspect many people will be hesitant to try them because they are not labeled as explicitly Peanut Free, I just thought I'd pass along the information.

When I was a child, I really missed out on ice cream and candy because of the whole allergy thing, and I'm pleased to imagine kids getting access to the basics - like orange creamsicles.
