Do you still buy Oreos and Goldfish crackers?

I was just wondering if most of you are still buying Goldfish crackers and/or Oreos. Recently, both Oreo and Goldfish came out with a PB versions.

I am still buying them, but I wonder if I should be moving them to my "unsafe" list.

We're still using them here, but not often.

We still use goldfish but Graham has never seen an oreo. Commercial chocolate cookies of any form are taboo here! [img][/img]

We still use regular Oreos here, ever since the posts that said that PB and mint oreos are made at another facility and that the regular ones are safe. The mint oreos carry a warning about made in a factory that processes PB, but the rest do not. Haven't used goldfish much recently. Ds won't eat them...? HTH Kristi

We have some oreos in the house but she only rarely eats them, and the school uses regular oreos only and goldfish. I use goldfish still at home, but since she gets them so much at school, not often. becca

My dd can`t eat either one because of her other allergies, but Oreos has come out with a new version with a chocolate filling that will be without whey (milk), and it is definitely made in a different facility than the pb oreo. I called them and we had a long talk about this, so I am sure. I am not sure about the other Oreos, as they have milk, so dd can`t have them anyhow.

Really, no whey? Yeah!!! I am on my way to the grocery store with my fingers crossed that there is also no egg or canola oil.

We don't buy oreos anymore. Instead I get the Teddy Grahams chocolate sandwich cookies. Occasionally we still get the baby goldfish. Although I am not all together comfortable with them anymore.

Yes, we still buy both. For Oreos, we always read the labels first, and for Goldfish (also check label) and we only buy the regular size, original flavor.

Very interesting to hear what Carefulmom said about a new Oreo coming out without whey! My son hasn't had any oreos for about the last 3 weeks as we've been avoiding all milk protein as well. Before that he was eating the regular & mini oreos.
Avoding the oreos most likely saved him from having a peanut exposure this weekend!
There was a plate of Oreo's set out at church. In the past I have let him have one after he has asked either his dad or me-however these Oreos were the Peanut Butter ones (or possibly peanut butter & chocolate) and I could not tell this by looking at them!! They look like the originals and others commented on this to me as well after the fact.
Thank God we were avoiding whey or we would have probably let him have one. Time for me to tighten up that comfort zone again and stick to the "only eat what we bring" rule.
It was very nerve wracking for me after making that discovery and thinking what MIGHT have happened.
Actually, he did have an airborn exposure from playing with another boy who was eating the oreos. I treated DS with his asthma meds & benadryl.
Be careful!
