For anyone who shops Roche Bros in MA, I just copied Alex's last message and sent it in a reply to a previous email I have had with Kevin O'Brien at their dairy dept. He has been very nice in handling my questions in the past and asked me to contact him if I found any peanut/nut free ice cream. I will keep you all posted if they get them! becca

THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you who have so many great things to say about Max and I and our products. If everyone out there continues to exert this much effort to educate and inform the grocery store managers and their corporate about the 4+ million people with the PEANUT/TREENUT allergy, Max and I can continue to do what we know best and that is to stay away from PEANUT/TREENUTS!!! Please believe me, I would really like to leave the PEANUTS for our competition to deal with!!!!! I know that I have mentioned this before, but PLEASE!!! call me at any "reasonable" eastern standard time and I would be happy to hear some comments and suggestions. My direct (cell phone) number is 813.477.41.59 and my TOLL-FREE office number is 1877.379.47.57. My email address is [email]ALEX@PHILLYSWIRL.COM[/email]. In the last few months I have spoken to approximately 300-400 parents who have children with the PEANUT/TREENUT allergy so therefore, if you do the math, I have approximately 3,999,600+ parents to speak with ASAP!!! Now my wife and I have to figure out what products contain soy and dairy and get rid of all of them or else our ZACHARY is NOT a happy camper!!! I look forward to hearing from all/some of you out there!!!
Sincerely,
Alex Plotkin-owner/co-founder

Dear AJSMAMA, SF, kcmom, Syd's Mom, McMelon, Jana R, smack and etc., etc., etc.,!!!!!
Thank you so much to all of you and MANY, MANY others!!!! We're still doing everything we can to stay peanut/tree nut-free, but I will be honest with you, IT'S getting HARDER & HARDER!!! We're actually working on two brand new concepts, one of which includes an ice cream sandwich!! Once again, to anyone out there who has any questions, comments, or suggestions please feel free to call me at the numbers that I have listed below, OR CALL ME COLLECT!!! AT THIS TIME, We really need all the advice that we can get!!! I have listed both my direct cell phone number as well as our TOLL-FREE number. Please give my numbers out to any parent out there that can help us!! I have heard hundreds of moms continue to say to me that they did not want to bother me!!! YOU ARE NOT BOTHERING ME!!!! As I have stated numerous times, my wife and I have a 13 month old son Zachary who seems to be leaning more & more toward the same allergies that all of your loved ones possess. Think of this as a CRY FOR HELP!!!! HELP US STAY PEANUT/TREE NUT FREE!!!!! I always here at your service!!
Sincerely,
Alex Plotkin-owner/co-founder

I finally found Philly Swirl! It's not the cup with the little wooden stick/spoon, but it's the Philly Swirl on a stick. I personally ate 6 during the drive home.
For those of you in south/central Ontario, a Costco that definitely is stocking this item now is the Markham Costco at Hwy 7 and Woodbine. I'll post other Costco locations during my travels that I see stocking Philly Swirl.
I drove home with my six carton's threatening to melt, but got them into the home freezer just at the mushy stage and they quickly froze again.
Yahoo - love this stuff. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Please, please Stay Peanut/Treenut free (and if you can milk free for our milk allergic friends who love this product).
I see visions of buying a bigger and bigger freezer to stock pile Philly Swirl all summer long so that when we're hybernating up here during our long winters, we'll have enough to carry us over until late spring again!
Warm regards, Syd's Mom

We love the new products - especially the Phudge-Sundae ones! It seems to be a hit in the Winn-Dixie by us because they are always running out.
Please continue what you're doing, we appreciate it.

I haven't seen them yet. I've been looking for them. I live in Chicago and they're not at the Jewel chain. Boo hoo. Jewel has so many varieties of ice cream treats, some of them are knock-offs of each other, like 8 different brands of everything, but no Philly Swirls. What color is the package? What should I be looking for?

Hey fellow Canadian members,
As I have said before Costco does carry the philly swirls but not all year around.
I was at the London, Ontario Costco yesterday and they have them back!
Glad to here you finally got them Syd's Mom!

Hi smack! Does your Costco in London carry the Philly Swirls on a Stick or in a Cup or both. It's not beyond me to go grave distances finding these items. The Markham Costco carries the "on a stick" version.
I wouldn't mind scouting out locations that have the "in a cup" version.

Now, if those ice cream sandwiches could be *soy*-free and peanut-free, I'd be in heaven. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
