I just wanted to bring to everyone's attention that this product is not safe for those with soy or dairy allergies. I have recently had to avoid these foods for other reasons and I called Chapman's to see what the "Natural and artificial flavours" were made out of and I got a call back from one of their lab technicians. She said the "tutti fruitti" flavour of popsicle does contain soybean oil as well as soy protein and that all of the other flavours have the risk of having been cross contaminated since they are all made in the Chapman's ice cream facility.
Oh, I really cannot wait until this labelling law is passed!!

Anyone with a dairy allergy pretty much has to avoid all Chapman's products. They will not guarantee that there is no risk of cross-contamation with dairy - and my girlfriend has been told that by multiple people at Chapman's, including the Quality Control person. It's too bad. :(

It's disappointing, especially since Chapman's seems to have gotten something right when they went peanut free...too bad they aren't more conscientious about other allergens.
