Last summer the whole family including Axel(pa) lived on philly swirls we bought them at costco. The kids loved them and they had flavors that adults enjoyed to. I liked the difference from popsicles. Axel had NO PROBLEMS with them.

Thanks for letting us know that Philly Swirls are nut free. I would have never bothered to call the manufacture about them. I just assumed that all frozen treats were off limits for my PA son. He was so excited that there is an ice pop that he could eat.
We just tried them tonight. They are great tasting and at only 49 calories each...easy on the thighs! [img][/img]

Is Costco the same as Sam's Club? I cannot find this brand at the grocery where I live.

Costco is a large warehouse-type discount store that sells everything from groceries to electronics to books. They are huge warehouses. You have to buy a membership to shop there (I think it is $50/year in Canada, not sure what the price is in the USA).
The Costco's in Canada are great as they sell peanut-free chocolate bars by the case. I bought a case of 24 Kit Kat Chunky bars last time I was there, and it was only $12 plus tax. They sell cases of all most of the peanut free bars (ie: Nestle Kit Kat, Aero, Coffee Crisp, Smarties, Mirage) and other bars made on nut-free processing lines such as Cadbury Caramilk.

B's Mom: You are very welcome! I am so happy you like them and can find them in your stores...My son loves the "chocolate fudge" flavor on a stick...I wish they would make a whole box of just this one flavor that comes in the assorted box!
I know how difficult it is to find safe nut free frozen treats so I am thrilled to have found this product.
Enjoy! [img][/img]

Here's a new one... Alex Plotkin of Philly Swirl called me spontaneously (I had already contacted the company to confirm that they are PN/TN-free) to say that they are going to start making ice cream and he is contacting people who have contacted THEM about allergens to tell them about it b/c of concerns about highly dairy-allergic people. I didn't get ALL the details, because after he said that the change would NOT affect the peanut/nut content of their products I was so happy I kind of stopped listening carefully... but it seems that the ice cream will be made in the same facility, and perhaps the same lines as the sorbet (not good news for highly sensitive milk-allergic people). I'm so happy we can keep buying the sorbet... but then it occurred to me after I talked to him...does this mean that there will be a SAFE ICE CREAM in the United States?? That would be amazing! At some point I'm going to try contacting them again...they are very responsive to e-mails...Alex Plotkin really gives you individualized attention...I may not be able to do it soon with my crazy schedule right now... but I thought I'd let people know about the change and maybe some of you will have the chance to contact them yourselves.
