We have been buying Kit Kat Bites as a special treat for our PA son. Found out today from Hersheys that they have discontinued these as of December. So if you still see them on the shelf and want some, you should buy what is left now.
The rep I spoke with at Hersheys recommended that we call and request that they continue making them as they are one of the few candies many of us feel are safe for our kids. Please call! We are going to miss these!

that's too bad. my girls love kit kat bites. they are one of the few chocolate candies, other than plain hershey bars and a couple of other things, that they get to eat. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] i'm not happy to hear this.

That's unfortunate. It is the only Kit Kat product in the USA that does not have a peanut allergy alert.

Oh man! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] Why am I not surprised-our choices keep getting smaller and smaller so this is par for the course. Thanks so much for the post-I'm going to buy a few bags to keep stashed but I don't think they stay fresh for very long.

I was afraid of that. I haven't seen them in a few weeks. I'll make a call to Hershey,too. What a shame!

That totally sucks. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] DN is probably allergic to something else in there (my guess milk is in there, or wheat or soy) but still, looks like it was a good sweet out there for a lot of PA kids.

I called today,also. The rep was very sympathic and said she will pass my disappointment on to whoever. I hope they bring them back, it costs so much for shipping from Canada.

I also mentioned the shea butter/kissables ordeal in the same contact. Not sure if they only consider one subject per email or what. I also have a group of online friends who are all contacting Hershey about this on behalf of all the pa and tna people. I hope there is power in numbers.
