I know there has been a lot of talk on this particular topic in the past and I have pondered over the decision of if I should let my dd try these. I finally decided that I would let her try them and she has had no problems whatsoever. The company didn't make me uncomfortable about it, but I was nervous because of all the talk about these little cookies! I bought the 12 pack snack kind, they are the mini oreo's with chocolate in the middle. My dd has eaten 3 packages so far and hasn't had a problem. If I buy them again in the future I'll still check everything and call the company, as always. Just thought I'd let you know!

Well, there aren't any warnings on the bag at all for allergies, which is the same for the regular ones. I don't know of anyone that has had problems with them, but some were concerned when oreo's started making other flavors with peanut flour in them and the company couldn't say for sure if the mini ones was a dedicated line or not, a lot of us that called got different answers and I guess some people just decided that they weren't going to trust their labeling on this product.

Heck with the mini one's...we eat the big ones...plain original ones and we read the label on every bag always. These are the one real treat I give the kids. It is funny to watch them "dunk" them in the milk.

When I was in New York City, I noticed the mini-Oreos looked safe (no peanut warnings).
However, here in Toronto our mini-Oreos do have a warning "may contain traces of peanut residue".
Both products are made in the USA (different manufacturing facilities???). It shows how important it is to always be careful and check labels as you never know.

FWIW, DD eats oreos all the time and then we bought the mini ones, twice. The first bag she was fine, the second one she had a reaction requiring epi.
Nabisco swore up and down they were safe when I called them on it but I am almost positive they caused the reaction. (Only because everything she ate in the time frame was food she eats all of the time)
It is all about your comfort zone though, they are not in ours but may be in yours! (although we still eat the big oreos.)
Take care

Yes. that is why I am suspicious that some mini-Oreos say 'may contain peanut residue' on the label while others have no warning at all.
