While at a hockey rink in NY, my 9 y/o pa daughter spotted coffee crisp in the vending machine.She was so excited because we travel to Canada a few times a year for tournaments and she knows these to be safe. I purchased one for her. While they are made in canada, they do not have the same crossed out little peanut sign that they have in Canada. Is this what everyone else is seeing and are you letting your pa loved ones eat them? She is so upset with me because I haven't let her eat it yet. Thabk you for your input.

The ones I've found at Target in the U.S. did not have a crossed out peanut logo. But if the ingredient list looks good and there isn't a cross-contamination warning, it is fine. Nestle will put a warning on if there's a cross-contamination risk. I've let my DD eat them.

The regular size Coffee Crisp bars in Canada don't have a little crossed out peanut symbol on them either. This symbol is usually found on the bag (ie: bag of 12 snack size bars).
Nestle Canaad always puts an allergy alert on any chocolate bars that have any risk of peanut contamination, so if there is no warning it is safe (plus check the ingredient list too)

I was wondering about the little crossed out peanut not being on the regular bars in Canada. Last time I was there, all I purchased were the snack size in bags because I wasn't sure. Now, I'll double check it and let her eat it if the label and ingredients look good. I'll also buy out the vending machine when I am at the rink tonight.
Thank you.
