Hello Canadians friends:
I live in NY and just returned from a trip to Montreal (fabulous city!). I had heard that the Kit Kats were safe and I know Nestle Canada has peanut free facility labels on some of their products, but I was unable to find any Kit Kat with that label. I'm confused...are Kit Kats without the peanut free icon safe or not?
Thanks so much.

Hi there! I'm not Canadian, but recently returned from a trip to Toronto. The only KitKats I found with the peanut-free symbol were the snack size bars. The bags I bought contain 20 pieces & have the "peanut with a slash" right on the front. I brought back 3 of them! I can't say with certainty, but I would guess bars without the symbol aren't safe.

Hi! I am from Canada and have lived here all my life. I have also lived with an extremely severe PA all my life and the Kit-Kat bar is one of my favorites, it doesn't have a peanut free label on the wrapper except in the snack-size ones that usually come out around Halloween, however I have been eating them all my life and have yet to have any problems. They are one of the few chocolate bars that I trust to be safe for me to eat. They don't say anything on the label about being made in a facility that also produces nut products or that it may have come into contact. That generally means they are safe.
