Does anyone know the current status of Nestle's frozen poscicles (see the link to the ones I'm talking about with their nutritional info). Many say allergen, nut free and kosher!

I am not comfortable with shared lines when it comes to ice cream.

IIRC the last time I called Nestle about these, she said some are made on shared lines and they clean in between. The allergen statement only means that there isn't any of the allergen in the actual ingredient. She recommended we avoid the ice cream sandwiches and stick with the fruit type and the pushups, which, at the time, were made on dedicated equipment.

I looked at a few of the Nutrition pages and they say *nut* free, but they don't specify *peanut* free.

Is this information Canada or US specific?
In the past in Canada, ALL Nestle frozen novelties and ice creams have always had a "may contain traces of peanuts/treenuts" statement on them. Is this something new, if so, this is wonderful info.
Thanks

charlottesmom, I checked the Canadian web-site [url="http://www.nestle.ca"]www.nestle.ca[/url] and I cannot find nutritional information for those products. I think the Candian ones probably do still have warnings.

i think ill try the scooby doo pops in the ice cream version. i called last year but have still been too chicken to try them!! i was told that because of the pop shape they are made on their own lines. i asked about if the ice cream is made on shared lines and i believe she said the whole kit and kaboodle made in one area????? not sure though.

I spoke to a nice rep today and here's the scoop...
The only products that are run on a dedicated, non peanut, nut, egg line are the Push Up varieties. She confirmed no peanut, nut or egg could contaminate the push ups. If you have an issue with milk, some push ups do contain milk. There is a sherbert variety and an ice cream variety in the push ups including chocolate chip mint and cookies and cream!!!! We will be buying these next time I go shopping.
All other pops including the mini ice cream sandwiches are run on a non-dedicated line that does run peanut and nut products. She did say they take every precaution in washing down the equipment and the workers must wear different color caps and cannot leave the facility while the non-nut products are being run.
The ice cream line is 800-441-2525. It took me forever to find this number!

We have had the Scooby Doo Push pops for a while for my daughter, but we would give my son a philly swirl to make him happy. Glad to know that I can give him these now.

Oh MY GOSH!
Thankyou for this thread. I bought some & called today & got them same info and just finished a Mint Chocolate Chip Push Up.
I have not had Mint Choc Chip ice cream in probably 10 years. It was soooooo delicious. I want to eat another one, but I am going to make myself wait until after dinner.
The only ice cream I am personally comfortable with in the US is Ritas & Philly Swirl. It makes me so happy to add a new food to my list (instead of having to cross another thing off!)
I recommend calling every 6mos-year, though, because they do not label for shared lines.

It is US. Apparently, the push ups are made in a way that cannot be run on the shared lines. Good news for us!

but someone brought up that the actual ice cream that is put in the pop could be made with all the other ice cream and then put into the pop.

Does it actually say nut free on the box?
This would make travelling to the US easier.

Okay... I called back tonight, and they said everything in it is run separately- it isn't just assembled on dedicated lines, the ice cream, etc is all made on dedicated line (IOW- they don't bring in already made ice cream and then fill the push ups, they bring in the ingredients that go into the pushups).
BUT there are nuts in the facility. They take precautions to reduce cross-contamination between lines- no nuts are allowed near the dedicated line, and the people running nut products aren't allowed out of that area.
The Push Ups are the ONLY product, however, that is a dedicated line, everything else is run on shared lines.
I have tried all three flavors now and like them. The mint and chocolate are very good, I have never cared for cookies and cream... but it was okay.

No, the box does not say "nut free" anywhere. There are VERY few products in the US that do. It is extremely rare.
And what concerns me most about the company is that they do not label the other products that don't have nuts added as being made on shared lines (like the fudgesicles or ice cream sandwiches).

That's one thing that bugs me about Nestle. They label for shared lines on some items but not others. The lack of consistency makes me not trust them as much.

Thanks VariegatedRB for posting the info on the push ups. I was going to call them next week. Now I feel better and we'll try them soon.
It is so wrong to write nut free, etc. on products that could be contaminated. They should put a warning that they are run on the same line! Very deceiving!

Right, but they do write "nut allergen free" on their website. So they are making that claim, despite the use of shared lines.

I posted about the push-ups about a year ago.
However, I didn't get much feedback on here about it. I think most people on the board still did not believe it!
I was told that the push-ups were run on dedicated equip.

I called today and was told that "nut allergen free" did mean that the pops are peanut free as well. I was also told that line is run separate on a dedicated line with no nuts. Nuts are in the facility, but not on that line.
I was told all the same things that dgood was told. (Thanks for the phone number.)
We usually have PhillySwirl, but it is getting more difficult to find their products and we can't get the fudge pops at all anymore. It will be so nice to have another product to try! Dh was especially happy when I told him they had mint choc. chip! Dd was happy to have more ice cream to choose from.
Thanks for the info and the number!!

My daughter loves the rainbow sherbet push ups. No issues whatsoever. She doesn't really like chocolate or mint in general, so she hasn't tried these flavors yet. The rest of us love them and I am so happy there is a safe option. Finally!!!

My PA DD is so happy about this! I'd e-mailed Dreyer's about these but they didn't get back to me. So when I found them on sale at the grocery store yesterday, I called the number on the box from my cell phone. The rep said that they are made on a peanut- and nut-free line. We love Philly Swirl, but variety is nice.

I called Nestle Ice Cream about this yesterday morning and was told they are run on a shared line w/ peanut containing products, but that they are extremely confident in their good cleaning practices. They will not label for shared line or made in same facility.

Phew! Glad to report that when I called the 800# back this morning, a lady named Donna confirmed what others had said earlier - that the PUSH-UPS ARE MADE ON A DEDICATED PEANUT-FREE LINE. Sorry for any confusion. I told them they were giving out conflicting information (from my last call).
She also said that if any of their suppliers seemed to be unclear about cross contamination, then they would state 'may contain trace amounts'. There are peanut-containing products in the same facility, but they do not label as such because they firmly believe the likelihood of cross contamination is remote.
