M&M/Mars Canada (Effem Canada) has begun making safe Mars bars (Mars bar is the same as a Milky Way).

I saw the first of these tonight at Shoppers Drug Mart. It is peanut-free and nut-free. A nice peanut-free logo appears on the packaging similar to the logos used by the other peanut-free manufacturers products (Dare, Chapmans, Nestle, Quaker, etc)

Not all Mars bars are safe so we must always read labels. Here is a photo of the safe Mars bar!! This is GREAT NEWS!!!!! It's wonderful how there are so many peanut-free products available at the grocery store now!! Everywhere you look these days, you see the peanut-free logo on products... great news!

that's great to hear [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
be careful to always read the label, as only some sizes are safe.. keep looking for that peanut-free logo [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I haven't eaten a Mars bar in.. more than 10 years!! so exciting [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I haven't had a Mars bar in over 10 years [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] I'll be good.. I only eat about 1 or 2 chocolate bars a week (as I get older I have less of a sweet tooth)

That's great [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I think they just came out this week, so it may be difficult to find them at first (as most stores don't seem to have them yet)
I found them at the Shoppers Drug Mart at Yonge & College here in Toronto.. hope you can find them soon too! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I just told my dd and she is soooo excited. We can't wait to try them. I noticed though in the pic, on the packaging it says "Energy bar". Is this different in some way than a plain ole chocolate bar?

But from what I have seen, a U.S. Milky Way is identical to a Canadian Mars bar.. how are they different? They are both filled with nougat and caramel with a chocolate coating.

Erik, I have to laugh at your EXCELLENT food photos. I think you should consider a career as a food photographer, maybe for Canadian Living or Epicure or some such magazine!
My DD has a printout of your GELATO photo from Italy on her bulletin board at home - such a beautiful photo!
She was excited to hear there may be another bar she can try! I love Mars bars if they've been refrigerated or lightly frozen, even. Of course, I like the Dark Chocolate Mars Bar even better - I'll have to keep a lookout for the Peanut Logo on those too!

I'm so confused. I always though Mars Bars were full of peanuts - not just may contain, but actually loaded with peanuts.
I don't think I've eaten one in my life - even pre-allergy days.
Definitely looking for these. Caramel, nougat, and chocolate. Happy Anniversary to me. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

AnnaMarie, I know that here in the US, Mars bars are loaded with almonds. I used to love those! When I read the first few posts of this topic, I thought some of you "went NUTS" for saying that Mars bar had no nuts!
I wish we could get some here. The only candy bars we could eat where I am from are those smores candy bars. But they look and taste too much like nuts for us to feel comfortable. Maybe "I" am going crazy [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]>

Erik is definitely the Canadian Candy Expert, however, in Canada, "Mars Bars" have NO nuts, "Snickers" are the same bar but with peanuts.
I guess they've always been manufactured in the same location, which is why both were taboo.

I think the US equivalent of a Mars bar is the Milky Way...
there is an American Mars bar that has almonds...now called Snickers Almond...
from Wikipedia:
"The Mars Bar was introduced in the United States in 1936. It contained nougat and almonds topped with caramel and covered with milk chocolate. It remained on the market until 2000 when it was renamed the Snickers Almond bar. Elsewhere in the world, it is known as the Mars Almond bar."
I miss Milky Ways...about 15 years ago they started coming with a nut warning.

I've looked at several stores here in Ottawa, can't find it yet. Maybe they are trying to get rid of old stock first? I know Wade will love it though, just wish I could find it.

I see them in more locations today. Here is where I have seen them so far:
1) Shoppers Drug Mart, Toronto Eaton Centre
2) Shoppers Drug Mart, Yonge & Bloor (next to subway entrance)
3) Shoppers Drug Mart, Yonge & Carlton
These are all busy locations, so the old stock probably sells very quickly

I found them at Bell Pastry and Delicatessen in the Bell building at 160 Elgin St in Ottawa - but only the 2 bar size (two bars in one package).
Unfortunately they have eggs so they are still off limits for us ..

Found them today at our local Pharma-Plus.
Pointed them out to DD, re: box/package size and label logo. She picked one up, added it to the pile of purchases.
When we got out to the car, she took her treat, and then said "I can't eat this, it says 'may contain'!" . I thought 'no way'.
I took it from her and looked at the label - no peanut-free logo.
I took it back inside and checked the box again, then realized that they must have put the last few old stock on the top of the new box - the bars underneath were peanut-free.
All I did was explain to the clerk why I needed to exchange the bars - should have pointed out to her, I guess, that their shelf-stocking needed some work.

Hadn't seen this thread so my eyes weren't open for the product. We go into No Frills tonight and Jesse passed by the chocolate bars in four packs. Anyway, I'm down the aisle and he says, "Mama, come here quick, you have to see this". I could see from where I was that it was Mars bars and who knows what else and I thought, why do I have to go there?
Well..... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
So, my 10 year old son got to try his first Mars bar tonight and I just had my first one in 10 years and his sister just got to try her first one as well.
Wonderful "peanut free" logo on the wrapper as well as the warning:-
MAKE SURE TO READ THE LABEL EVERY TIME. OTHER MARS BAR PRODUCTS MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS.
Gotta love it. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

HI gvmom,
I think once they clear the current stock and order new product, it will be peanut-free. I am noticing these peanut-free Mars bars everywhere!!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Also, note that Mars makes a bar called BOUNTY that is peanut-free too (although it does contain coconut)

You could try [url="http://www.canadiansweets.com"]www.canadiansweets.com[/url] too
[b]Note: FYI for Americans, a Canadian Mars bar is the same thing as an American Milky Way bar[/b]

The Bounty bar looks just like a Mounds bar. OMG, that sounds so good right now! I love coconut too! This candy thread is torture! I'll check out the link to canadian sweets later today. I might send an email to Panhandle too. It all depends on how much my level of desperation increases, though I'm guessing once my kid is out of school that will be exponential!!!

I went to Canadian Sweets -- they have Mars bars there, but they don't have the ingredient info, or the complete picture that it is peanut-free. They also have Bounty. No ingredients either. Part of my problem is that I have to have candy that is Peanut, Tree Nut and Egg free. Why can't one place have everything, products & ingredient lists?!

This is another site for ordering products from Canada. I think it's expensive, prices are in US$. Ingredient lists aren't found either, but they should be able to email ingredient info if you contact them and ask.

gvmom - I spoke with Jason at Canadian Sweets and described the new Mars Bar and the wrapper. He said he had not seen it yet, so I assume that the Mars bars they are now selling are the old, not safe ones.
Send him an e mail or give him a call so he will keep watch for them!

We all scarfed down our second Mars bar yesterday. My local grocery store now has the "peanut free" ones. I am just SO happy.
Now, we do have a GREAT choice of "safe" chocolate bars in Canada and I've never complained and don't eat a lot of chocolate anyway, but to have another bar "go safe", well, to me, that's just awesome.
What's even more awesome is even if it is junk food your kid is gobbling, the smile on their face to be able to try something new. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
