I called Phillyswirl this morning and spoke with Max, one of the owners. (They are such nice people!!) 1-877-379-4757 is their phone number.He said they are looking into making ice cream and that the popsiclea and cups would still be safe because they would be made on a different line. He also said that they are not looking to make any ice creams with nuts so that their ice cream products should be safe too!! I told him I could kiss him and that there is no safe ice cream in the USA for PA people. (At least none that will claim 100% they are safe) I told him if they start producing a safe ice cream for peanut/nut alergic people they will have an entire folowing buying the product. He seemed really pleased with this and said to keep checking back with them for updates! They are super people!
I was so happy when I got off the phone I did a little dance!!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Thanks for posting this news! I have had numerous conversations with them in the past and I think they are a terrific company and have excellent customer service! I will give them a call next week also to find out about this new ice cream.
I would be so excited to have a safe ice cream product for all peanut allergic people!!!!

I just spoke with Alex from Philly swirl yesterday. I haven't found them in my area, but we're working on it. If you have a store nearby that you would like to carry it, call alex (or max) and tell them and they'll send you a form that you can give to your store manager.

I got a call from alex at philly swirl and the company will have an answer next week,about if the company will make some ice cream. The company will do it if it is safe for pa/nut allergy... I just want to tell everyone to buy philly swirl even if the company can't make the ice cream... the sorbet is SAFE and more important
how many companies are so nice??? Its just nice that someone is trying!!!!!

I thought I would call and let Philly Swirl know that I am thrilled to hear they are working on an ice cream product and that I hope it will also be a nut free, safe ice cream.
I spoke with John and he explained that they will have more information available by the end of this year and that I can check back at the end of November. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I think this is a great company and they deserve some type of allergy awareness/nut free award!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Who with peanut and nut allergy has safely eaten the chocolate phillyswirl pops? My sons really want to try it. I understand that the likelihood of cross contamination is slim to none, but would appreciate some reassurance.

I just bought a box of these to bring to school for my dd's safe pops, and wondered about pulling out the chocolate ones too! I honestly do not think she is that sensetive depending on their cocoa supplier(and given their efforts on being nut free), but chocolate always makes me nervous! becca

My son has eaten the chocolate ones with no problems. It's not his favourite though, he isn't much of a chocolate flavoured lover.
My favourite is Candy Floss, oh yum yum

smack - our costco just opened in town and they don't carry phillyswirl [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] Do you know any other place that would carry it (and does the time of year matter?) Other than renting a few Barney video's for Syd, I wanted to get her something while she's recoperating from this bad bout of bronchitis. I'd be willing to drive to other costco's (Barrie, Markham) etc., if I thought they carried the product at this time of year. Any ideas where I can get it, if Costco doesn't carry it this time of year or in the Costco stores near us?
