Other than milkshakes, what drinks could contain nut flavoring? I never gave it a thought until now. (USA)

Flavored coffees and teas. There was some question as to sodas on here at one point (diet pepsi I believe) but that turned out to be false.

Oh yeah! Thanks. I saw a reference to nut flavorings in some beverages and I couldn't for the life of me think what kind of dinks they'd put them in. [img][/img]

Watch out for some of the Chais (almond extract) and soy drinks. Also Amazake, the fermented rice drink.

Don't forget alcoholic drinks sometimes have nuts (e.g., gin sometimes has almonds).

Yes.. and some yummy beers have nut flavors, too, on the alcoholic side. Such as "Nut Brown" beers and a few others.

I remember reading that root beer uses caramel coloring that can be derived (in part) from peanut shells. I have never verified this with any company... I'm guessing that it would be listed on the ingredient label as caramel coloring. Has anyone looked into this?

Actually, the nut brown refers to the enhanced flavor from the roasted malt, not additional nut ingredients. [img][/img]
Kind of like how Keebler puts "buttery" on Club cracker package, althought there is no dairy/butter in Club crackers. [img][/img]

Yeah, I checked on Red Hook Brewery's Nut Brown Ale. They said it does not contain any nut ingredients.
What about those syrups they use to flavor Italian sodas? Also, there is almond "milk" and there is actually a company that makes peanut "milk". There is also that Butterfinger flavored cocoa, although I think I read that the flavoring is artificial. I also heard of one person having a reaction to "homemade" soymilk in a vietnamese restaurant which contained ground peanuts.

yes - the flavoring in the Butterfinger cocoa (Nestle) is totally artificial and is pn/tn free, same with the Smore hot cocoa by Nestle. I got this info on the phone last week.
