Mini Melts do not make any peanut or nut flavors. They have a pecan flavor but it is not made with nuts. It is artificial. Unfortunately they seem to only be available in mall vending machines or by delivery in gallon containers that cost a lot due to needing dry ice. Their website explains this. They have machines at the Arsenal Mall in Watertown, MA but they seem to always be empty.

Dippin Dots makes peanut butter flavors and the other flavors are on the same line if I recall the conversation correctly. They clean the lines and run no nut flavors for a few days, then the nutty ones. So I guess it is a comfort level decision on this brand. The peanut butter ones are stored in the same freezer as the non peanut ones.

Polar Bursts are distributed by Shaws but really are Itty Bitz. These are made in a regular ice cream factory on a dedicated line but there are peanuts and nuts in the facility and the production line is in the same area as the nutty ice cream lines.

Anyone in the Newton, Boston area that is interested in sharing the cost of a bag of Mini Melts please let me know! Each gallon bag has 25 servings. They have to be eaten within 24 hours of delivery as they do not last in the freezer and the dry ice runs out after a day. We could have quite the ice cream party for the nut free families! I be willing to host it, if anyone is interested.
