pI spoke with Mott's today (800) 426-4891/p
pI was told they do not have any nut products in their facility and all of their products are safe! [img][/img]/p
pI found a new item in the store today, it is called, Mott's Fruit Blasters. Different flavored apple sauce in a squeeze tube!! /p
pNo fridge needed, but great chilled and also good idea to freeze for a frozen treat alternative!!/p
pJust thought I would pass along this nut free kid friendly snack idea! [img][/img]/p

Thanks! We've always used mott's plain applesauce, but I've been avoiding the flavored stuff.

I'll confirm what SF said - I just got off the phone with Motts and indeed all of their products are safe from cross contamination with peanuts and/or tree nuts. Yeah! I want to try these Fruit Blasters that come in a tube.
Here's the web site:

kstreeter: great question! I did not even think of yoo hoo, until visiting Mott's website!
No, I have not asked them about this product and have not tried it yet.
I will contact them on this one. Let me know if you find out anything on the production of Yoo Hoo, thanks!

Just received the following email:

Yoo-hoo is nut free but the bottling plants are not designated as nut free
plants nor are the production lines designated as nut free lines.
My question: how is Yoo-Hoo nut free if in the same sentence they state that the production lines are not nut free? These companies need to be more specific! I think they meant to say that there is a chance of cross contamination and that Yoo-Hoo does not contain nuts but is run on shared equipment.

FYI - they are saying that you need to buy those Fruit Blasters at Walmart, K-mart or Target unless you are in the Eastern US / not at a regular grocery - this is per the Motts web site. Can't wait to find them - just in time for camp lunches!

Well, if anyone wants a consumer review on the Fruit Blasters - they are very sugary. My 3 year old didn't like them. I say stick with the regular Motts applesauce.

Thought I would let you know that I have seen the Mott's Fruit blasters at Shop Rite and Super G on the east coast.
My PA picky eater did not love them either, maybe better for "big kids" [img][/img] and I am freezing the rest for a frozen treat!
Initially, I though he would like the packaging since the other preschoolers in his class bring "tube type" snacks with their lunches and my child does not eat yogurt!

Motts / Dr Pepper / Snapple fails to list allergens present in their production facilities on their labels. Motts also fails to list allergens present in their production facilities on their website. When I contacted customer "service", all I received was an apparent attempt to get my personal information:
December 19, 2014
Thank you for your email about Mott's Applesauce. We would like to obtain additional information in order to best answer your inquiry. You can call us at 800-696-5891, Monday through Friday, 8AM-7PM CT.
Thank you!
Consumer Relations
There is no information from individual customers that is even remotely needed to disclose allergens. The allergens are present or not, regardless of what individual customer is contacting you!!!
Motts, please disclose allergens PRESENT IN YOUR FACILITIES and put the information ON THE LABEL. Please don't torture your customers by withholding the info from your labels and expecting them to take their valuable time to play detective to get this. PEOPLE CAN DIE from exposure to these allergens, even when "state of the art" cleaning methods are used. Let customers make their own decisions about what risks to take with their lives and THEIR CHILDREN'S LIVES.
