Hi Eric and other Canadien Friends,

I was looking at a Canadien candy web site and saw Nestle Canada Kit Kat Dark Noir.

Does anyone know if they are safe? My dd had dark chocolate for the first time on Easter and loved it.

Thanks for your help!
Denise

Ok, I just answered my own question. I went back to the website and saw a whole section labeled allergy free.
I think they are referring to peanuts only. They probably shouldn't call it allergy free. That can be misleading.
Anyways, that Eric for the website.

Sometimes I wish I lived in Canada. I know my two hockey playing sons wished they lived there , too!

Hi Denise,
Yes.. the Nestle Canada Kit Kat dark is made in a peanut-free/nut-free facility. I have eaten it several times.
Please note that the Kit Kat dark that is available in the USA (made by Hershey/Reese) is labelled as 'may contain peanuts'.
The Nestle Canada Kit Kats are all safe at this time (April 2004) with only one exception - the "Kit Kay Chunky Caramel" is labelled as 'may contain nuts/peanuts' as it is not made in Canada (it is imported from an overseas facility that uses peanuts).
Nestle Canada will always put a warning on the packaging for chocolate bars if nuts or peanuts are used in the manufacturing facility.

Eric,
A few months ago a friend of mine was going to Canada for a hockey tournament. So, I gave her $20 and asked her to buy me some of the great candy that you always brag about.
She brought me back many safe treats for my dd, but she also bought a few of those Nestle Aero Chunky with caramel by mistake. I saw the peanut warning on them.
What a shame!! I had to eat all 3 of them!! They were yummy!

Hi Denise,
Actually, the Aero Chunky Caramel is safe... it is made in a nut-free facility... and they are tasty..
Although I assume you were talking about the Kit Kat Chunky Caramel which are unsafe (I hear they are tasty too).
Glad you enjoyed them [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
