Ack!!! I hadn't seen that yet. I know the regular ones, in the U.S., have the "manufactured in the same plant..." warning. But, I wasn't aware that they make an actual pb kitkat.
Thanks for passing the word along!

Hi
Are you sure it was a peanut-butter flavoured Kit Kat and not just the warning logo that the product may contain peanuts? I have yet to see a peanut-butter flavoured Kit Kat, but I have seen a logo of a peanut on some Kit Kat chunky bars to indicate that they are may contain products (since usually Kit Kats are safe). I found it helpful since right away I knew I wouldn't be buying it!

Yea I am positive that it was a peanut butter flavour Kit Kat Chunky. I pickedup the bar in disbelief myself. Even my daughter read it and asked if she could still have kit kat now that they made this PB flavour? I am going to go back to the same store tomorrow and read the lable and see where it is made. US or Canada? I am pretty sure it must be USA because here in Canada Nestle (as everyone knows) makes safe kit kat,coffee crisp,smarties,ect.
I'll keep ya posted

It has taken me long but I have the answer concerning the Peanut Butter Kit Kat.
The Kit Kat is impoted by Nestle USA manufactured in Switzerland.

katum's mom, I finally saw a pb KitKat (I think it's Chunky) in the variety store to-day. I didn't notice where it came from (I'm in Canada), but I did notice that it said, despite it being a pb KitKat (so DUH), that it said "manufacturered in a facility that also processes peanut products".
Nestle Canada does have a separate facility where they manufacture their peanut and "may contain" products.

Hi
I finally saw this product at Loonie Lizard today. I looked at the label and noticed it said that it was imported (I'm in Canada), though I don't remember where from. I still trust the other flavours of Nestle bars from Canada that don't have warnings.
The store had a bunch of other unusual flavours of Nestle bars that did look appealing, had no warning, and were manufactured in Canada (like a white chocolate Kit Kat, white chocolate filled Aero, and Latte and Caramel Coffee Crisps.

Well, I guess some people like pb with anything. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
At least they are still keeping lots of safe Nestle treats for us. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

hannah mom, you need the advice of The Candy Guru, erik, as to what bars you listed in your post are PA "safe" or not.
Peanuts and pb have always been a mainstay in chocolate bars, IMHO. It's not like they're going to go away.
Personally can't fathom a pb KitKat bar, but that's just me (and me pre-PA).
No, I'm pleased that Nestle Canada was able to maintain the peanut free products it has (Smarties, regular KitKat, Aero, Coffee Crisp) and any new flavours they might put out that are PA safe, well, I just consider them bonus.

Those bars are all safe and made in peanut-free facilties.
Always check labels as manufacturing conditions can change at any time, but as of now, the only unsafe bars I have found are:
Kit Kat Chunky Caramel
Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter
Smarties Milk Chocolate Bar
Smarties White Chocolate Bar
Smarties Peanut Butter Bar
Smarties Xmas Ornaments/Shakers
Smarties Easter Eggs/Christmas Eggs
All other Kit Kat/Aero/Smarties/Coffee Crisp/Mirage/Rolo are safe.
The newest safe bars I have found are Coffee Crisp Latte, Coffee Crisp Caramel, Aero White, Vanilla Smarties, Kit Kat strawberry, Kit Kat vanilla, Kit Kat white [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
It is great Nestle has so many safe bars available.
As well, the After Eight chocolate bar and cookies are both labelled as 'may contain peanuts', but the traditional After Eight mints in the box are safe - made in a peanut-free facility by Nestle UK and available in both Canada and the USA.

Hi
Yes, I realized those other bars were safe -- that was the point I was trying to make they still have lots of other safe choices (though I guess I didn't make it very well). I did buy one of each of the safe ones yesterday to put in stockings at Christmas.
