Darn! I just purchased a box today to keep in my daughter's classroom as her special treat when homemade goodies are brought in for birthdays. She was so excited to get them - she'll be so sad that they won't be safe much longer.

[b]While I was very happy to discover that they were proudly peanut safe and bought a case as a result, am I really the only one who thinks they taste pretty much like sludge dipped in petroleum by-products? DD ate one and never asked for another. DS won't touch them. DH says they bring back bad memories of his childhood in the south.
I personally don't like them (I remembered them as tasting much better when I was a kid!), but DS loves them. And he's the one who matters. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

FYI...went to buy moon pies today at walmart and thought I had plenty of time before the new label changes took effect BUT all the boxes at walmart already have the peanut/treenut warning. So, I had to explain to 4 yr old DS that these are no longer safe for him. He was sad, but we'll find something else. I also emailed the company.

Interresting. I usually never find these where I live. I went to a store lightly out of my way(but better prices) today.
They have Mini Moonpies ("chocolate flavor with StarDust Sprinkles). It is a 12 oz package with 10 individually wrapped pies. I dare not make a typo as I cannot edit. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Lightly out of my way, yeah.
Ummm, slightly out of my way. That's all I caught so far. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img]

This is terrible!! I had to stop eating them due to my soy allergy, but I can't believe that the company shows so little concern for their customers. Their response floored me - it's as if they are saying, "We don't care about our current consumers, we are more worried about the dollar signs we see all over the potential ones."

Re-raising. I think it is a VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE. A previously nut-free, allergy aware company is taking a 180. Turning their back on all of us. A sad day, indeed.
Have a blessed day,

We don't eat moonpies (yet... may have started as a special treat when our my son starts school), but I will email to help those of you who are losing a nice treat. I know my favorites could be next.
