I have seen a new tv commercial for Mars bars the last few days. It really emphasizes the fact that all Mars bars made in Canada (all sizes) are peanut-free.
I've seen a lot of tv commercials lately emphasizing the peanut-free status of their products (Quaker granola bars, Mars bars, Chapmans ice cream, etc)... it's nice to see!!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

erik, I almost came into this thread last night to say that I had seen the first commercial for the peanut free Mars. Jesse saw it to-day.
I continue to be really pleased. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I know the bars have the peanut fee logo but has anyone read the ingredients? I believe the box says that "may contain nuts". My husband looked quickly at the Costco when they were giving out samples.
I haven't checked it out yet. But I did look at Equality Ice Creams this week tons of variety with peanut and nut free sticker but the ingredients said may contain nuts?? I read it twice to be sure.
Thanks

I went to buy a Mars bar tonight... it has the peanut-free logo on the package and the ingredient list does not include peanuts or nuts [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] So they are safe.
Regarding Equality ice cream at A&P, it is peanut-free/nut-free now, but they are using up the old packaging. Soon, new packaging will arrive that states peanut-free/nut-free on the label.
I think they have been sticking the peanut-free/nut-free stickers on this product on an interim basis until the new packaging is ready - if there's any doubt in your mind just wait until the new packaging as it should arrive soon (I've already seen a few flavours with the new packaging in my Dominion [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

You're welcome.
At Shopper's Drug Mart, I saw the big case of mini snack size Mars bars this week (70 bars per box).. there is a large peanut-free logo right on the box [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Perfect for Halloween [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I was checking a few days ago. There were some packages that said "may contain trace amounts of nuts" and there were others that [b]very clearly[/b] said "PEANUT/NUT FREE" on the front of the package.
Some of the old packaging still has the old product in it -- so for now be very careful reading.

With Hallowe'en coming up and the bags of mini Mars in the stores now, just a reminder (which probably no one here needs) to make sure to still double check the mini Mars on Hallowe'en. Never know who still has last year's stock.
But other than that, and I've done the reminder already and will again, we're SO excited about this year's Hallowe'en! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
Well, as far as the candy goes.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
