pVermont Nut Free sells nut free chocolate. I ordered from them for Cmas and everything came on time, the chocolate tasted great, and they were especially helpful on the phone. Tell them you heard about them through PeanutAllergy net work and a small% goes to help support this network. /p

pQuaker has to be the worst company to call regarding peanut allergy. They just do not have any info to help one make a decision as to whether their products are safe. Basically, their answer was "we cannot be 100% sure, so don't use our products" They (I spoke to four different persons) extremely unfriendly and difficult. On the other hand, some companies that are excellent to deal with: General Mills and Kraft./p

pKrispy Kreme doesn't cook with peanuts but here in SC they sell donuts stuffed with PB. There's a chance of cross-contamination. That's one of our biggest concerns....most places who make food have some type of peanut product there in their kitchen and a peanut could show up anywhere. Just be careful./p

Hi Coco.
I really envy you guys in Canada. It seems that Canada is much more in tune with the peanut allergy thing. Any ideas on why and what we in the US can do to raise awareness?

Hi - I am in Reston, VA in the Washington DC area. The only restaurants I feel comfortable going to are: Bertucci's brick-oven pizza (this is a chain) and 'Clyde's' at the Reston Town Center.Clyde's apparently had a problem with someone allergic to peanuts once last year, and since then has developed a no peanut oil policy.
We are still very cautious each time we go to these restaurants, but they seem to be educated about peanut allergy and wanting to avoid any possible problems.
I was thinking of going to these restaurants and asking them if they would guarantee in writing that they are peanut-free, and then in turn we could include them in a sort of "guide-book" for the peanut allergic. What do you think out there? Anyone interested in going to restaurants in their neck of the woods? I am going to e-mail chris to get some feedback on this topic as well.

1. Coco, thanks for your post. I'm in Hamilton and appreciated the info.
2. As to why Canada appears to be better, it may only appear to be. Our labelling laws are behind the U.S. in terms of specifying which hydrolized vegetable protein is in a food, our airlines monitored U.S. practices before implementing some changes, our restaurants are about the same in terms of their comfort level with/knowledge about food allergies, our daycares follow no consistent practices re: food allergies because there are no regulations specifying them, our schools are not required to accommodate under the types of disability/equal rights legislation that I read about on this board, etc. Peanut oil is used less commercially here because the industry is not large and therefore peanut oil is more expensive than other types of oil. I am not saying that Canada is behind the U.S. just that although sometimes the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, it may not actually be true. We are struggling with the same issues here. We are further ahead in some areas and farther behind in others.
Hope this helps. Take care.
