Les Chocolates Vadeboncoeur - made in a nut-free factory

As I was looking at Halloween candy at Shopper's Drug Mart, I noticed chocolates made by Les Chocolates Vadeboncoeur (made in Quebec). On the box, it states made in a "NUT-FREE FACTORY".

It is great that so many companies in Canada are printing "NUT FREE" on the packaging (ie: Nestle Canada, Chapmans, etc).

There is a box with 50 pieces of Halloween chocolates (500 gram size) at Shopper's made by Les Chocolates Vadeboncoeur. It is another good choice in order to support nut-free manufacturers.

I'm just bringing this manufacturer back up because I just came back from my local drug store and they had a whole shelf of SAFE EASTER bunnies from Vadeboncoeur in Quebec.

The tollfree phone number is 1-800-276-8504.

This will be the first actual BUNNY that my daughter will get for easter. There were caramel-filled mini bunnies, solid chocolate mini-bunnies and a 12 inch hollow bunny with a "surprise" inside.

Another Easter Option!

Yes, we bought these chocolates the last couple of years at Costco/Price Club. They carry these and other safe chocolates from Quebec manufacturers.

I always buy their chocolate at Easter to give to my friends' kids.

I have seen them in Walmart and Shoppers Drug Mart ( I live in Halifax, NS), and I think also in Zellers last year.

My son received a goodie bag for the birthday from one of his Daycare school friends. My son's teacher handed me the goodie bag(which had candy and toys in it) and told me that the child's mom made sure that the candy was nut free. The candy was Les Chocolates Vadeboncoeur. I am writing the mom a note to thank her for ensuring the candy was nut free. I was truly surprised that a parent of non-PA children would do this. What a nice gesture that made me smile the rest of the day!!

I checked the packages and it states Made in a nut-free facility.

Yet peanuts are not nuts. Has anyone double-checked with them that it's also peanuts??

I bought some today, and these ones did state no peanuts, no nuts and no almonds.

(aren't almonds a type of nuts anyway?)

Also found them in Zellers.

And these chocolates are delicious. (Of course, I'm a sucker for anything caramel...)

We do not like Vadeboncoeur chocolates. We find they have a greasy coating. Not a nice milk chocolate taste.

This is the chocolate that my sister sent from Quebec this year for the kids for Easter. It was the first time that she has ever sent them chocolate and she even wrote on the parcel - Cindy - Attention - Peanut/Nut Free Factory. I know that this discovery made her really happy (it's a long story and something to do with my Mom and chocolate Easter Bunnies being given to us well into adulthood).

They were squirrel shaped items and both boxes definitely had a big portion saying that the factory was peanut free (and I'm not clear what else).

Now, as far as that greasy taste/texture someone just mentioned above me, well, Mom here was nibbling away at some of it while she was doing the dishes this evening and I thought it was excellent - just regular Easter Bunny chocolate.

For me, it was just really great for my sister and I thought that was kinda neat. I know that she has never purchased chocolate in the past because she knows my kids don't need a lot of chocolate for one thing but also because she's been nervous about what to send. Chrikey, last year, she was nervous about sending sidewalk chalk due to environmental allergies. So, I felt really good that she found something in her home province that she could feel totally comfortable with. I could tell by her putting the large note on the parcel that she was really pleased. I'm happy for that. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I found they were regular easter chocolates. Definitely not the best chocolate there is, but they're on par, if not a bit better than all the cheap stuff that gets out there around Easter.

Since Halloween candies are out - I thought this thread needed to be raised. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

I just bought a box they are: "bite size beetle shaped pieces filled with a fun green neon coloured melt in the mouth sour fondant".

I'm really enjoying them. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Hmmm, neon green ooze, yummy...now all they need is a rotten chicken-and-rice flavored candy for my son.

A member of our church gave me a box of these chocolates for Christmas. I was blown over. My son was so excited. That was so nice she thought of us. She said she saw them in the store and thought about us right away because I have talked to her before about my son's allergy and how cautious we have to be. How wonderful....

Merry Christmas
Pam

My local grocery store Independent Grocer is carrying these chocolates! Saves the drive to a big city. They have had LOTS of Easter chocolate out for the past couple of weeks.
