I was sooooooo excited today when I found three flavours of the nut/peanut free Chapman's ice cream at my local Safeway store in Edmonton. This is where my parents do most of the shopping so I usually went to Sobey's to find Chapman's!
I haven't had any for so long and it is so yummy! I hope that they get more flavours soon.
The cashier was happy to see it because she gets a lot of questions about it.

I was aware that A&P took Chapmans Ice Cream out of their stores, presumably so that they could corner the peanut free market with their "Equality" brand - but they didn't do their homework very well because when I went to buy their new package of ice cream, I still read the label (proves habits are essential) and lo and behold the label reads "made in a peanut free facility but may contain traces of tree nuts" . Well, what good is that??? A good portion of peanut allergic people are either already allergic to other nuts or at least warned to stay away from them. Four out of six of our family are nut allergic - peanut and other nuts - so now we can't buy any type of ice cream from A & P - way to go guys :!: :!: :roll: :roll:
Anybody know what stores in the GTA still have Chapmans Ice Cream??

There's more info about what's going on with Chapman's ice cream at:

http://www.allergicliving.com/forum/vie ... c&start=15

In the interest of not having two very similar topics, I'm going to lock this one and direct everyone to that topic.
