Has anyone gotten any information as to the safety of these? I know they don't sell any peanut flavored ones, but I'm still not completely comfortable giving them to my dd.

I went to the website for the dippin dots, and they do make a peanut flavor and a butter pecan flavor....I really didn't search much farther as I figure that answered my question......don't know how safe they are between batches or if they make them in any certain order with an allergy wash? Just know they do make a peanut and pecan flavor........

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. Out with my own surgeries.
As for dippin dots we have been quite successful with these. HOWEVER, and I put that in caps for a reason, it seems to depend on the place where they are sold.
I will allow TN/PA dd to have them if they have a scooper for each bin, or are sold at fairs in plastic bags. At some stores they have one scoop for each 4 flavors [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
Also, she can only have the flavors that are not in the group of 4 with a nut flavor.
So, it is debatable until we are in the place selling them.
Never saw them at Mc Donald's.

I spoke to a person who was selling Dippin Dots at a festival and they said that there is a peanut butter flavor and that they would not serve any of the flavors to somebody with severe PA. If you are concerned about cross-contamination during manufacturing, then separate scoopers wouldn't make it any safer.

I have not seen any obvious nut containing flavors at McDonald's so far. So I guess checking into the manufacturing side would be the thing to do. Unless I find out they are absolutely safe, we are avoiding them. We occasionally let dd have milkshakes from McD's.
