Thank you for the info. We love the Areo bars and Smarties and I can't wait to try the Vanilla Coffee Crisp.

Hi Jason - I'm a Canadian.
I noticed that you sell Kindersurprise which is peanut free - but it is not listed on your allergy free page.
I did send an e-mail through the web-site, so I'm not sure who specifically it went to, but I did not receive a reply, and I just checked and it still is not listed on your allergy free page.
Please verify with the company that it is in fact peanut free, and then add it to the page. Thanks. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Ann Marie,
Your correct kindersurprise is a peanut free product. Unfortunately it's not able to ship into the United States due to a law passed by U.S. Consumer Product Saftey Commission as the toy inside is too small and does not meet the saftey requirements for food that enclose toys within the product.
It poses a choking, ingestion or aspiration hazard. The fine for shipping this product is a fine of up to 1.65 million dollars.
We keep it on the website as we ship our items worldwide. We don't have a disclaimer posted as this may scare potential customers from other countries who wish to purchase the product.
I will see if we can add it to our allergy free page as per your request.
Regards,
Jason

Jason, thanks for the response.
And especially, thank you for making safe treats available for my friends who can't find as many in their local stores as I can find in mine. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Hi Jason,
The new DARE cookies (maple, chocolate, etc) are now being made in a nut-free, peanut-free facility. This is written on the side of the cookie bag ("manufactured in a nut-free/peanut-free facility"). They recently made this change.
Once you start to receive these new cookies, you can also add them to your nut-free/peanut-free section [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Just a follow up: We've had a few questions regarding the inclusion of peanuts in a the NUT FREE facility in a previous posting.
The Main reason for the NUT FREE facility is for Peanut Free products. Nut Free includes all types of Nuts. No type of Nut enters the facility, thus a Nut Free Facility.
Regards,
Jason

Hi Jason!
Is it possible to order a mixed box of the Allergy Free Chocolates? Like some of each instead of one box of the same thing. They are for my 3 year old daughter who is PA and TNA and I would like her to have a variety of safe chocolates rather than just one kind. These are special treats for her we treasure them like gold. Thanks for any help with this request.

I am not sure which products Jason has available, but one idea I thought of is the "Nestle Favourites". This includes Kit Kat, Coffee Crisp, Smarties, and Aero. I've seen them in many stores such as Loblaws and Shopper's Drug Mart. This is a great assortment [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

toomanynuts,
We sell by the box as this is much easier as we try to manage our stock levels tightly.
The Reason we don't sell one of each bar is that the shipping is too high and if we break up a box and no one orders that product for a months we don't get stuck with half a box etc. We can't predict what people are going to order, so we keep our stock level low. Generally bars are good for 8-10 months of shelf life. So, we came up with a pre-pack of 12 bars that's on our pre-packs page.
Canada's Most Wanted & the All New Pre-Pack are allergy free items. This is really the only way we can offer the assortment at this point. I will see if we can move these 2 items into the Allergy Section, shouldn't be too difficult.
We don't carry the bite sized Nestle Favourites packages as Erik had mentioned, we can only carry so many products and most customers prefer the full size choc. bars.
If there is something else specific that you would like it may be available in a 4 bar pre-pack.
Regards,
Jason

Are any of these products free of other allergens in addition to nuts - particularly milk? (I'm always confused when something says "Allergy Free" when I don't think there is such a thing . . .)

Jana,
I'm not aware of other allergens within Nestle's products and cannot speak on behalf of their company. The only thing we are aware of and have confirmed several times with the launch of new products to their line is that their products are made in a NUT FREE facility which pertains mostly to people who are allergic to Peanuts or other Nuts.
The Nestle Consumer line is 1-800-387-4636.
Most of their products to the best of my knowledge are made with Milk Chocolate.
Regards,
Jason
