How many have ordered the nut-free candy/chocolates off of the few sites we have knowledge of? (Vermont, no-nutz....etc.)

Do you order it frequently?

Is it for an PA child or yourself?
if for yourself are you PA?

TIA~Cindy

I have ordered from Vermont Nut Free several times. I use the baking products for all of us. We have also all eaten the chocolate candies, but now I have started buying Hershey's candy (no warnings) for the non-allergic people. I still only give my ds the nutfree chocolate. Vermont Nut Free is very good, but gets pricey with the shipping since we live in Texas and have to pay for express shipping and the gel pack in the summer months since temps average in the upper 90's and above.

DH ordered some for me and the kids for Valentine's day. I have the nut/peanut allergy but my older kids don't eat nuts either b/c of me.

I am so fortunate that I live in Canada where Nestle has a great peanut free line of chocolates. I have, however, been very fortunate to receive Vermont Nut Free from different American friends and it is quite delicious. I'm now on their mailing list for their brochure and yes, they do look quite pricey, but the chocolate is heavenly.
I couldn't see it being our regular every day chocolate though simply because of the cost.
Threads like this sadden me because we can no longer ship Smarties into America. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

Edited to correct not - I said I'm not on their mailing list, I meant I'm noW on their mailing list.

We buy VNF at least once a month. We use it all the time. We do buy some other candies but not chocolate at the store but only buy VNF for chocolates. DD and myself are both and PA/TNA. We love the chocolate but the price is high for shipping especially when it is hot. I still buy it because it is safe. We also order from Canadiansweets for the smarties. We haven't tried the Notnutz or Kellie's Candies but dd really wants too.

I used to order from Vermont Nut Free, however, now that labelling is much better and Hershey's makes many safe items I no longer have to order from companies.

We have ordered from Vermont Nut Free for years and love the stuff!! The service is great and they keep coming out with a few new things around holidays - we loved the buttercream bunnies.
We have also gotten Canada Kit Kats, Smarties and such from Panhandle Premuim. I did just get some Valentine Candy from Kellies and really liked the toffee.
I have placed an order with Canadian Sweets, but haven't gotten it yet, so I will not comment on their service.

I order about 3X a year from VNF and Kellie's for Halloween, Valentine's Day, and Easter.
Also place candy by the case orders from Panhandle about once or twice a year.

I continue to find this thread sad. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
I know with the Smarties thread, there was postage involved along with the product cost, but I just feel so horrible that we can't send "safe" product into the U.S. anymore. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
