Graham cracker-Kraft vs Keebler

All I want is to give my DS a smore! He is PN, TN and EA. I did call Kraft/Nabisco and they claim that they do label for shared lines-I don't think I've ever seen that on a Kraft product though! I didn't get a chance to call Keebler-read the website which looks good. The Keebler labeling on the products looks good but they do have so many products with nuts. I don't know why I am so hesitant to try new things even after reading the label and checking into it-just too scared I guess! Are most people trusting with Keebler? Trust the label? Or would you guys go with Kraft? Thanks!

I trust Keebler more than Kraft (personal opinion). We buy the Keebler original graham crackers- DD is PA and TNA. We always check the labels as things can change.

Keebler labels for shared lines. Kraft/ Nabisco does not. We use Keebler for this reason.

NOte- unless their policy has changed in the last month- Kraft has previously said they lable for shared lines only if THEY feel there is a risk of contamination after allergen wash. Keebler always labels

Honey Maid is Nabisco. That's what we have always used. I use very little Nabisco-only things we have had with no problems.

I prefer Keebler brand because I don't trust Kraft/Nabisco. Although, I do know that they are changing their labeling practices. They are going to be labeling with may contain statements. It could be a while until you see them on the boxes because they are going to be using the old boxes up. I did see a product from Kraft with the new labeling.

I buy Kraft for products that I can't find an acceptable version in a brand I like better. I have never had a problem with Kraft, but do like Keebler's (Kellogg's) labeling. In the case of graham crackers, I buy Keebler, unless there is none on the shelf.

For smores, I did something recently that I will defitely do more often--it is so good. Instead of graham crackers, try using bananas. Cut a banana in half. Cut a slit lengthwise, but not all the way through. Put some safe chocolate and marshmallow in the slit. Wrap in aluminum foil, put on the grill for a few minutes, until heated through to melt the chocolate and marshmallow. Best eaten on a plate with a fork, not with fingers like traditional smores (it could fall apart if you tried to hold it and eat it). But oh so good!

I let my son (who has a peanut allergy) eat a fudge striped cookie for the first time last weekend. Of course I was nervous since he has never had them before, but he did fine!! There was nothing on the label about shared equipment or any mentions of nuts, I was actually pretty suprised.

I'm so surprised about these responses! I've always been under the impression that Nabisco can be trusted. When I joined this site about 5 years ago, Keebler had a really bad reputation, so we have avoided them completely. Guess I need to re-evaluate things. I should add we've exclusivley used Nabsico products for the past 5 years and have never had a reaction.

I can't get those pages to load. What are the products?

never mind-it finally loaded for me. I have not bought those. I would probably try the EL fudge which appears to have no trans fat (yayyy!!) as long as it didn't have a nut warning of course. I refuse to buy anything that has enough trans fat that it has to be listed (.5 gm or more) so I wouldn't buy the fudge stripes.

We use Keebler all the way; they have allergy alerts and some products are kosher certified.

I refuse to use Nabisco until they provide allergy alerts under FDA cods. They have until Jan 2008 to comply. I refuse to let DS1 (PA) eat ANYTHING that does not have an allergy alert. That also includes Pepperidge Farm products.

We had to do something. His tolerance was dropping quicker than we knew. He's only had one reaction in his life but somehow he's becoming more sensitive as time goes on.
