Nestle Canada has begun to distribute an additional safe chocolate bar here in Canada. [b]Kit Kat Chunky White[/b] is now available. It is manufactured for Nestle Canada by Nestle UK in a nut-free/peanut-free facility. It is the same as a regular Kit Kat Chunky, except it is coated with white chocolate rather than milk chocolate. Enjoy!

Here is the complete line of chocolate bars distributed by Nestle Canada that are manufactured in nut-free/peanut-free facilities:

Kit Kat (regular, orange), Kit Kat Chunky (regular, white), Kit Kat Chunky MAX
Aero (regular, mint, orange, dark), Aero Chunky
Coffee Crisp (regular, French Vanilla, Triple Mocha)
Smarties (regular, outrageous orange, sundae flavour)
Rolo
Mirage
After Eight mints

(please note the After Eights chocolate bar is not safe, as it is labelled 'may contain nuts')

Erik, it sounds like Nestle has been reading your posts. Pile enough Kit Kat Chunky [b]White[/b] and you could have a most original cake.

Hi Erik,
Thanks for the info. Do you know if some of the flavors you listed (Orange Kit Kat, Sundae Smarties, Mocha Coffee Crisp and this Kit Kat Bite for a few examples) are just "special editions"? Panhandle does not carry some of them and I am just curious if they are a limited product or just something they don't see the demand for at this time.
I remember I was able to get a few of the Orange Coffee Crisps from Panhandle and then when I tried to reorder I was told it was a limited production thing and they did not have them anymore. Is that just a Panhandle thing? Can you currently buy a (for example) an Orange Coffee Crisp in a Canada store?
Not trying to knock Panhandle - I have ordered from them several times and they have great service and the candy arrives promptly in good condition. Thanks for originally reccomending them.

Hi Chicago,
Yes.. these are special editions. If they are really successful, they may become permanent.. but for now, they are special editions.
For example, a year or two ago, Coffee Crisp raspberry and Coffee Crisp orange were introduced as special editions. These flavours are no longer made, and the new special editions are french vanilla and triple mocha Coffee Crisp.
Occasionally, a special edition bar will become permanent if it sells well (ie Aero dark)..
I think Panhandle does not usually order the special editions, as they are only available for a limited time so by the time they advertise them at the site, they may no longer be available.
Even though the Coffee Crisp orange is no longer being manufactured, it may come back again in the future. Aero orange was out many years ago, and just came back recently too. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks for your answer erik.
Canadians must really like the orange/chocolate combos - we really don't have anything like that in the US. It is very tasty!

Can't speak for all Canadians - but personally I love chocolate and orange. (Don't like chocolate with raspberry though.)
The Sundae Smarties are good for once in a while - but I could eat the orange ones all the time.

Hi
This is a bit off topic, but thought it would be of interest to those on the lookout for new safe chocolate products.
Today at Toys R Us (trying to do some Christmas shopping, not looking for chocolate), I noticed they had a new Terry's product for Christmas. They are white chocolate/orange flavoured balls that break into segments, much like the traditional Terry's Orange, called a Snowball (or some such name). The packs I saw (and bought) had no warning and I trust this brand that they will label if cross-contamination is possible (I check the label each time I buy because some packs have warning others do not, and I phoned last year too.)
So, unless you are a white chocolate hater (and I know there are some of you out there) here's a new treat to try!
Sarah
