A client of ours based in California sent us over some cookies as a thank you for our help, Alice's Stick Cookies were included.

I was, of course, assuming that I would be the only one not able to eat the cookies, but imagine my surprise when I looked at the ingredients and it specified "This product was manufactured without the use of egg, nut or peanut products"!! I was thrilled. And OH MY GOSH but they are tasty [img][/img]!

Gwen: sounds like a great allergy aware company to put a statement like that on the package!! If you have the contact info for Alice's Cookies, could you please post it so I can call them and find out where to purchase their products. Thanks! [img][/img]

Okay -- I am not a cut and paster, so bear with me: I went to Google ([url][/url]), and searched for "Alice's Stick Cookies" (without the quotation marks).
It should bring up an article entitled "Sticking to It", which gives a little more information. They sound good! Now to figure out how to order some -- the baker sounds like a sweet lady, and I'd love to support her.

I'm imagining the day when airline snack and meal vendors supply Alice's cookies in flight. What a lucrative contract that might be!!

I've tried to find a contact number for you all, but a colleague took the cookies home. Half full too, might I add! She then threw out the packaging.
No one in the office was impressed - those cookies may be made with all natural ingredients, but they are addictive! They really are that good.
I think I'll try to get in contact with the girl who sent them and ask her if she knows how to contact the manufacturer.

Hi All,
I finally got some contact info for you all. I received an email from Alice Larse this morning....... funny thing is, I don't remember sending her an email [img][/img], I guess I could probably do with a few days off!! Hope this helps though.
Dear Gwen,
My partner, Sally and I are pleased you enjoyed our Alice's Stick Cookies so much. We currently have no overseas distributors. They are sold in a growing number of San Francisco Bay area stores, the largest of which is the nine store Andronico Markets. Our FAX number here in Los Altos is (650) 559-1918. Again, thanks for your enthusiastic response.....Alice Larse, 119 Avalon Drive, Los Altos, CA 94022.

Wow, I got an email from Alice today also, here it is. Too bad I won't be able to purchase in my area!
