Carvel Ice Cream Cakes
Hey all. I DO NOT want to cause a panic on this BUT... I was in Carvel today trying to order a cake for my son Evan's birthday this Friday. I explained to what looked like the manager that my son has a peanut allergy and is it possible to have a fresh cake made (not one in the bin) for him and can special precautions be taken so nothing comes in contact with peanuts. Let me say that he was very nice. But what he did tell me was that the crunchies have peanut oil in them and that they had just received new labels that they will be putting on all of the cakes. I saw the label for their football cakes (covered in crunchies) and sure enough it contained the "may contain" warning.
Since it is the summer, Evan has had quite a few pieces of Carvel ice cream cake (with the crunchies) and no problems whatsoever. I don't get it! I have checked back in old posts and several people have said that they are able to eat this cake without any problems. To be on the safe side they are going to make his cake with crushed Oreos.
I sent an email to the Carvel customer service department and will let everyone know when I hear back.
