pI know Kellog's puts nut warnings on their products but they really impressed me yesterday. They have a new Star Wars cereal. In the store was a large box with two boxes of cereal and a storm troopers hat. Needless to say my son wanted it. I was looking at it, deciding whether or not to buy, when I noticed they had put the ingredient list, including a soybean warning easily visible on the top of the big box. I bought it. Cereal's pretty good too./p

The box of Star Wars cereal I purchased had a PEANUT WARNING right under the ingrediant list. I can't remember if it was Kelloggs or not but I do remember they had marshmallows in them. When I was in the store my 2 sons wanted it so badly I gave in without checking the box. Fortunately I looked at it at home before I gave it to him.

I think Kellog's got the contract for Star Wars, so it probably is Kellog's. The stuff I bought does not have marshmallows. It has "storm trooper cookies". Lot's of Kellog's cereal have the SW picture and a toy or something in them, but the cereal I bought is actually called Star Wars.

I bought a Star Wars cereal made by General Mills. It has the marshmellows in it.
I did not read the ingredient list or the warning box. (I had a terrible brain lapse that day) My sons ate it including the one with the peanut allergy. My sister came over while the cereal box was on the table and noticed the warning box she could not(nor could I) believe Nick ate the cereal with out any problems. Peanut flour is the second to last ingredient on the box. Needless to say I won't buy another box. I think we we were lucky this time. Kim

Annamarie and Kim,
I was at the store today and it was the cereal made by General Mills. Kim don't feel bad, I did the same thing! Thank goodness your son didn't react. I have to say, I am jealous of all the Canadians out there who can buy all these peanut free products!
